So get it running. There's nothing wrong with fixing that four-banger, or driving it with four cylinders, either. And that timing CHAIN is a real plus sometimes. Nothing like being out in the middle...

I don't know. Maybe just buy an Xterra instead. Sounds easier. Or go for the SE V6 and restore one of those. What you have in mind can technically be done, but it sure sounds like too much work and...

Yeah. The model kit is the best route. Or you can do what I do, and keep searching the die-cast bins. No luck yet.
