Thinking of a swap, need input.

Im thinking a JDM SR20DET 5spd awd complete engine swap.....
Just eyeing the engine it looks like it might be a good fit.

What do you guys think?

hmm our cars arent AWD from the factory.
JDM SR20DET is a Nissan motor.
this of course wont be a bolt in.
you would have to design the AWD system.

let torches and welders be your friend

not worth it.

for that engine you would basically be doing custom fabrication for a million different things

There's a shop in Nebraska (where I had my CRX tuned way back when) that has an AWD SR20DET B13 Sentra. AFAIK, it's the first and only AWD SR powered car in the US that didn't come that way from the factory (i.e., a few imported pulsars excluded).

So, given that you would be the second person ever to do an AWD SR20 in the US, you should at least have the sense to start with a Sentra. I can't imagine anything about your Focus that's special enough to justify using it as a starting platform.

Hey man, I think it's a badass idea. A lot of work sure, but if one guy can do a bimmer swap with I think it was an S2k motor then anything is possible.
