Yup, lots more room under the hood compared to a GT. The issue with a Manta is that the suspension crossmember is directly under the front of the oil pan area. So for an SR20 swap you need a rear sump, or cut the firewall and set the engine back +/- 10".I would think that it would be easier than putting an SR20 into a GT. You should have a bit more room for the turbo setup.
I don't think anyone here really knows. No one has come forth and done this swap, so it is uncharted territory. I personally know the SR20 engine from FWD Sentra (Pulsars/Sunnys), and from Silvias/200SX with RWD.any other difficulties except the positioning ?
hey i'm sort of in the same boat there, just i'm thinking of putting the CA18DET in!Does anyone have some info on how much work has to be done for a SR20DET to Manta A swap ?
You can relocate the rack from front to rear, but when you turn your steering wheel to the left the car will turn to the right! You need to install a 'rear steer' rack which will turn the correct way for rear-mounted steering arms.anyone with suggestions and/or info with regards to moving the steering rack and if it will/won't work,
please let us know.
