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.

It could vary form 2300-3600. I bought a skyline r32 clip w/rb20det the KM is 128k witch is 80k miles kinda high but I payed 2300 w/ body panels,they are beat though.

if you are gonna race/drift go with the nismo lsd. yeah its uber expensive, but highly recommended by Okachan from Yashio Factory. by the way my srswap is approaching 15K because of internals and machine shop work

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.

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.

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!)

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
