I did do a little bit of search. I read the entire block comparison thread. I still can't find the answer I'm looking for. I have an 86.5 hb. I also have in my garage a complete ka24de. Pulleys. Trans. Wire harness. Oilpan. Ecu. Everything. Why do I have to modify the oil pan to get it to drop in? I don't mind making or swapping motor mounts when the time comes ( this will be a turbo motor). Can I use the starter that's on it? If my z24 breaks I'd probably drop this motor in before its turboed and get another block and head to build thats why I'm asking

You'll also need to either cock the engine to the side or get the KA trans so it'll line up right. The oil pan does hit.
Warning: I do occasionally have good ideas that come after your already extremely pissed and it may make you want to punch me, I do ask that you refrain from hitting me.

IIRC, the oil pan form an early Fronty KA24DE solves the problem. I also think the Fronty motor mounts will do the trick.
The 240SX tranny is also longer and the shifter is further back.There are a few who have done the swap, but it does require some mods.
Remember, I am going from memory, and it was a while ago.
