I don't think your going to find a complete SR20DET with tranny (5sp, FWD) for that price... ain't going to happen.

Most all the DET's came with AWD automatic trannies. Don't you have a good 5 speed transmission in your car right now?

100% right.

he might be doing a ga to sr20 swap. the AWD trannys are worthless.

Do you currently have an SR20DE in your car... and is your tranny a 5 speed? If the answer to these is yes, then yes use your tranny.
Wow really i thought i would have to find a fwd tranny from a sr20det. right now i have a 5spd sr20de. Thanks!

just drop it in and get all your piping done and your good to go. your ecu will need to be reprogramed.

Don't run on the stock ECU...

Have you considered just boosting your current motor. You can find good deals on the forum on T28 setups, there's one there right now that comes with the 370 injectors and the DP. The stock motor can take it easily enough and this will keep your cost and overall time involved minimal.

Monty speaks the TRUTH! Turbo your stock motor if it is in good condition. Then you don't do anything but put a turbo kit on, change ecu out and you are set!

i thought about getting a turbo kit to the motor that i have now but it has over 160k miles which isnt that bad have'nt ran a compression test on her but i think its not going to have numbers that i need, just figured i would get a stock DET and just upgrade that motor as time goes by

I have 170,000+ and I will be turboing mine. I ran a compression test and got 175 on all 4 cylinders. She's ready to rock! While I collect my turbo parts I will be spraying her too.:D

I just bought a SR20DET out of a Bluebird for 1220 shipped to my door from Tigerjapanese.com and sent my ecu to calum to be reprogramed. Yes the SR20DE trans will work and so will your axles. Mounts are identical and your stock harness and ecu can even be used. It's pretty straight forward. Hope this helps. Good Luck!!!

I'm doing this swap right now on a 96 200sx so we're in the same boat.
