What's the costs to convert to SR20DE? Can a B13 tranny work with it?

Thanks alot! But it looks like I'll hada convert after all.. The timing chain burst on me last night. :shock:
Valves and thing bent. Those things don't really ever burst from what I hear, but my mechanic say he's seen it happen to B12s before.

GA15DE looks like the best option now since I could use my tranny and mounts and parts easy to find right?

Instrument cluster

Postby NR8 » January 19th, 2012, 4:10 pm

Anyone knows where I could get an instrument panel for the B12 and the avg price? I did the conversion and now my tachometer not working at all. Temperature gauge also seems to be reading incorrectly.

What engine did you install?
You would have to reconnect the tachometer wire (usually located where the ignition coil use to be) to the harness on the new engine.
Concerning the temperature, you will have to remove the temperature sender unit from the old engine and install on the new engine.
You will not get accurate readings with the sensor on the new engine, unless its the same type of engine installed.

Hope this helps

Thanks! I figured it may be the temperature sender unit so I took the one from my old b12 ga15s engine and placed it in the new engine. I was wondering though if the readings I'm getting now are correct. At normal use the gauge is at exactly half. However in standstill traffic, stop and go, a/c on, etc. it goes a little above half. Is this how it's supposed to read? The old engine with the same sender unit would never go above half.
The new engine is a qg15de by the way.

hey....i bought a foreign used nose cut for my b12 but it came with a manual radiator, i was advised that i cud use an oil cooler with the radiator to run to the tranny however the mechanic said that the water from the radiator will cool the oil in the oil cooler and not the tranny. so he was saying is best if i buy a new radiator. However i bought the car with a qg15 engine and the mechanic cant find a radiator that will fit.
1. does anybody know if this is true abt the oil cooler and tranny?
2. anybody have a qg15 inna b12? wah radiator yuh using?

leon britto is it the foreign used model b12? I'm not well versed in transmission oil coolers but I do have a foreign used b12 which I recently converted to QG15DE.
I'm using the same stock radiator with it. It's not the original Nissan brand one but a stock replacement. The original one was leaking last year and caused overheating and blown head gasket. It was too far gone, so I replaced it with a new one. Paid $1600 installed with 3 months guarantee. Your mech may be right about not finding one to fit, as I have noticed that unlike regular radiators with the neck and cap directly on top of it, the neck on the b12 radiator sprouts up from the side, facing the engine.

Question though, how does your water temp gauge read on normal use with the qg15? With my original ga15s it would always be between 1/4 and 1/2, never above. Now after converting it's ALWAYS EXACTLY on half with normal driving, and when idling or in standstill traffic it goes up a tad bit, not much but noticeable.
