Default Point me towards some good threads

Hey there fellas,
Have a 1985 720 that I'm helping build for my little brother. Just purchased a N/A rwd Sr20de that we plan on installing. All I have been able to find was people online in previous threads saying not to do a sr swap and rather a ka swap. Nothing with install steps or diy or anything for a sr. Although this one will not be turbo and will be getting a VVL head with itb's down the road. Is there any threads anywhere online to help me do some research on this? Yes I have searched.

Since most engine swaps here never get completed swapping an engine here is probably not your best source of info, just being honest. I have not seen any engine swaps for a Datsun truck, love to see it done. I would predict custom motor mounts and drive shaft besides all the rest of the engine hardware.

I got some good info from the 240sx forums and nissan road racing forums. You just have to be aware of jerks from time to time, I am not sure if either site has a naturally aspirated section for the SR20.
