Hey guys
I thought I would start this thread of my swap to share my progress and get some help/tips along the way. I swapped a 91 1UZ into my 89 240sx coupe. I pulled the engine out of a ls400. Im running the original trans from a KA24DE.

I did the swap myself besides the wiring. I got the car back from the wiring shop yesterday. The swap is now mostly complete besides a few small things like wiring the fans but most importantly it runs!

Here is my build thread for those interested:

A short vid of the first start up:

I will get a proper vid of it running tomorrow.

I took the car for a 2nd test drive. The car had an inconsistent idle. It ended up being the throttle return dampener. I later removed it and welded it solid which fixed the problem. Also the clutch has a stiff spot right where its fully diss-engaged that I believe is due to the spring in the peddle.

The camera doesn't due it justice but heres a vid from the 2nd test drive. Open headers btw
