Are they both direct bolt ons? Or do I need more stuff. I've heard all that is needed is different tranny mounts?

Thanks,

Jusat a FYI, it really wouldnt be worth the extra cost of the engine. Say you do get the S15 blacktop, then get it in your sentra and running, you will have spent way more on the engine alone than you would have on a bbdet, and extra parts to make it as high of a HP engine and still have cash left over..Josh

and like i said in your other thread...

"We do not recommed installing the S15 SR20 motor due to high cost and time consuming install. S15 utilize a somewhat capable 6spd transmission with their speed sensor relocated to the rear differential. Be sure to get the complete rear end and drive shaft along with the S15 motor package, otherwise install will not be complete. The ignition coil is further advanced compare to S13/S14 SR20DET with the ignitor chip built into the coils, so one will not find/need the ignitor chip found in S13/S14 SR20DET. One can also upgrade to the S15 SR20DET ignition coils provided they are capable to wire it into their existing S13/S14 SR harness. We can perform S15 installs, usually price is about $500 more than S13/S14 install. Also speedometer is not compatible with S13/S14 gauge cluster yet until we figure out how to make the signal compatible with the S13/S14 gauge cluster. However air conditioning and the rest is not a problem."

"The engine and transmission will fit into 95-98 S14 US 240SX chassis with minor modifications to the transmission mounts. The differential is needed as the speed sensor is located there.

The S13 chassis requires more work. The driveshaft has different mounting location from the S14 / S15 chassis. Custom work must be done.

This engine is expensive and hard to get. If you are on a tight budget, please consider other options. We CAN NOT separate the transmission from the engine to use in a different swap"

the S15 swap is quite a bit more challanging to my understanding...mainly due to the changes in the S15 chassis and the inclusion of a 6-speed

The easiest and best SR20 swap for a 240 is the S13 red top... just look around http://www.240sx.org i'm sure you can find some info there

the easiest swap for a 240 depends entirely on the year. the easiest swap for an s13 is an s13 det. for an s14, put in an s14.

As 240 guy, Id say dont waste your time. As soon as you try to make power out of that motor your Tranny will kick the bucket! Plus with the money you would spend you might as well go RB!

For the money, go S13 or S14. Either will work. S13 will be least expensive. Upgrading to 350-400 horsepower will still be cheaper than just the purchase price of an S15 engine.
