Engine Swap 97 Hardbody 4x4 KA24D w/KA24DE

Postby AJ.VALENTE » Tue Jun 18, 2019 4:44 am

Problem is finding good KA24E's as they have virtually disappeared from the market. But, there are plenty of Frontier engines available.

So, can I put a KA24E from a 98-on Frontier into a 98 hardbody (KA24D)?

I know it will fit, but if not a clean swap, what changes/modifications are required?

Many Thanks engine heads--Help me keep this great hardbody 4x4 on the road! :dblthumb:
