AD VFY11 SR20DET Manual FWD Conversion

Postby JPaps1 » May 11th, 2021, 11:02 am

As the title says, I'm wondering if anyone has done an engine swap on the Y11 Wagon that comes with a QG15DE stock (automatic)

How easy is it to do a conversion? I know I'll have to do some cutting and drilling to install the clutch pedal etc. But otherwise, is there a SR20DET and manual FWD transmission combo (axle and everything) that would bolt into the Y11? Modifying mounts is not an issue for me either. I'm hoping that I wouldn't have to customize the axle. I read somewhere that the Avenir SR20DET + trans + axle can bolt into the AD without mods, has anyone done it before?

My QG started burning a lil oil so I'm anticipating dropping an Sr in it one time

OK.
The Y11 chassis was shared by both the AD van and Wingroad. Isn't that so ?
Then the engine compartment should be the same for both the AD & Wingroad.
The Wingroad series carried the JS, and JS Touring. Correct ?
OK.
There was also a model that carried the SR18 engine, albeit an Automatic transmission.
Is the SR18 about the same size as the SR20 ? I can't say.
I know a guy with an SR18 Auto model.
If you want to see how it is installed give me a call 724 3422 and I will try to make arrangements.

Thanks for the response man. Yeah, older wingroads and AD Y11 share the same chassis. I have seen a wingroad that has SR20VVL in it from the factory, although its mated to a CVT transmission. I don't know if SR20VVL and SR20DET (or sr18 and SR20DET) have any differences in shape, size, mounting. I wanna find out so that I don't waste my money buying a SR20DET that just costs too much for me to swap in. I'll give you a call sometime

The Y11 Wingroad had a ZV and a ZV-S model. While I am not sure if the ZV had the SR20 or a SR18, I am certain the ZV-S model had it. It came with the SR20VVL, and the HyperCVTM6 transmission. (I want to suspect that it was the same setup the P11 Primera had )It also had rear disc brakes and independent suspension.
I live in Marabella, and an Indian Rasta guy still drives one through Marabella.
There is a Nissan wagon, the Avenir W11 that also had a SR20 and SR20 Turbo. There are a few around still. Check Wikipedia, and you will get all the iterations of it..........And a Bluebird SSS AWD.
But going back to your installation, I cannot say if the SR20 Turbo will fit without too much modification.
You have to infiltrate SR20 Turbo circles !
Too, please remember gasoline prices keep going up.
