How much did your det swap cost?

How much did it cost? Including parts, what parts, labor(if you didn't do it yourself), wire harnes rewire/extension. Just looking for rundown of miscallaneous parts and totals to find out how much this swap would cost. I have been curious to know since i have heard that it can run up to $4000.

basically, after you bought the motor and trans, what did you have to buy and what did it run?

so far it has cost about:
gages (used) 40.00
LSD diff 177.00
axels? have to find them when I get the diff
exhaust 200.00
driveshaft 50.00
hks f-con 180.00
mis parts 100.00
total 747.00

need a new waterpump so that is going to add to it. I bought a clip so I used alot of the parts off the clip . I think a clip is the way to go,because all the parts you get w/it things you don't think of.

Re: How much did your det swap cost?

Let's see if I can remember my expenditures:

1) SR20DET redtop front clip from Venus $2500.00
2) shipping clip to North Carolina $558.00
3) HT hotpipe with GReddy Type S BOV flange $139.00
4) Permacool 2700cfm fan kit w/thermostat from HT $129.00
5) NGK platinum plugs, oil filter, fuel filter from HT $39.00
6) OEM SR20DET water pump from Enjuku $174.39 shipped
7) TODA flywheel from P1 Auto $480.00 shipped
8) Exedy ceramic 3-puck sprung clutch kit from P1 Auto $425.00 shipped
9) Odyssey PC680 battery & gold terminals from www.batterymart.com $119.53 shipped
10) Nismo low-temp thermostat from Enjuku $69.99

This totals to $4633.91. I actually paid $200 for items 3, 4 & 5 since I bought them off a friend after he dropped his project, and did not have to worry about his cost to ship. So my real total comes to $4526.91.

I would like to get the following before I install the engine:
A) Nismo motor mounts from Courtesy Nissan $152.XX + shipping
B) Tanabe "solid" tranny mount from Phase2 $118.75 + shipping
C) Koyo radiator for S13/SR20DET from Phase2 $345.00 + shipping
D) OEM oil pump from ??? $???.?? + shipping
E) various silicone hoses, hose clamps, gaskets, etc. probably $2-300

Items A-E will probably total about $1000.

The reason I am using the Nismo motor mounts with Tanabe tranny mount is because I have heard several complaints about the Nismo tranny mount being too soft. Since this will be a pure track car, I will not mind the transmitted vibration from the stiffer mount.

Just in parts alone I am looking at a total of $5500.00. So when you go to price a swap, keep these things in mind.

It is a r32 vlsd I found it on ebay and also got the axles for 120. last night I put the diff in and it fit great, but the driver side axle on the 240 is stuck in. I am going to get a torch and heat it up I hope that works.

Re: How much did your det swap cost?

how much would I be looking for the basic swap. Meaning, not adding any mods. How much just to get the motor and all other neccesary things to get it running. What other parts would I need. I know clutch would be wise and while I'm in there, might as well do the flywheel also, but I am just try to guage cost of getting the car up and running.

Re: How much did your det swap cost?

37, plan to spend at least $3000 to get a DET running with just 3'' exhaust and motor with stock sidemount, misc. expenses. I am at about $2500 just with mods I have bought because I do NOT want to have a stock sr when I put it in. Also, don't forget to add $100 for a fuel pump and $120 for a Nismo FPR (keeps your stock fuel pressure, walbro bursts up fuel pressure!)

Re: How much did your det swap cost?

I just got a totaled 240sx with a sr20det swapped in it for 1600 lol...I had to wheel and deal but its worth it...I sold my se-r for 2000 that I bought for 1300 and then just had to pay another 300 and now I am the proud owner of a totaled 240sx lol
Watch ebay I saw a 240sx with a sr20det swapped in it for 3500..it looked good but it was too late for me
