View Full Version : Stupid question 510 engine swaps

07-21-2005, 03:31 AM
I have read that the sr20det can be swapped in a 510 or 240sx.
A rb25 can be swapped in a 240sx
My stupid question is can a rb25 fit in a 510 as well?

$ is the only limiting factor in any equation
If you want, You can make a TT rb26 powered AWD 510 with 750WHP given the right $.
If your asking though i doubt you have the skill or the $ to invest into this project so no...

Problem is the 240Sx engine bay is about 2 feet longer than a 510 engine bay. http://forums.freshalloy.com/images/graemlins/shocked.gif

well, I personally would not think of a 510 drag car unless you want to fabricate a solid rear end on it. It is probabaly easier to put a v8 in it, or a v6. Those will have plenty of torque. traction is the issue. Also getting everything else able to handle the rb25det like chasis, suspension , brakes, sticky icky tires and other factors to actually get teh power to the ground

You sure can put a RB25DET in there. You would of course have to fab up some new motor mounts and modify your firewall and move the drivers seat back or you would be shifting a little behind you. Anything is possible for the money.

That's how it's done. Who knows, in time it might even get finished....

That is what is good about Dan, he know that their is no limit on what you can do. I would guarantee you can put any engine in any vehicle, it is just a matter of how much money you have and your fabrication skills. I would have bet that back in the early 90's when the SR was release that nobody would have ever thought it would fit in a 510 or even a VG30DETT like Dave Lums 510 (talk about needing a big shoehorn to get it in the stock engine bay).
