  1. Ok. The RE4R01A is 24” from block to center of mount. Thanks for the info
  2. Been slowly chugging away at my project. Got the L20 and trans out and am able to compare it to the KA with auto. Motor mount to tail shaft of KA auto is only 1/2” longer, so we’re good there. The transmission mount is 3ish inches further to the rear. So I’m looking at modifying the trans x member. @datzenmike would you happen to have the measurements of the mounting location for the KA 5spd? I’m wondering if the auto is the same. Redeye makes a trans xmember for the 5spd (I think), would be tits if it worked for the auto too.
  3. I already have those brakes, was just curious if your 15’s fit over them. Bummer about the truck tho
  4. Which disc brake conversion did you do?
  5. Truck when I got it had 14 x something slot mags Titan Off Road 17x7.5 +30 Just picked these up. American Racing Hurricanes 15x8.5. Ad says 4.25 backspace which translates to -12 offset (I think) Still trying to determine what tire size I want. I don’t really want any stretch. 225 50 15 maybe?
  6. For your records the A/T I have is from a 1992 240sx and measures at 32”. I can put a straight edge on it later and measure as it’s slightly over 32” but not more than an 1/8” or so. And do you measure to the very end of the prop shaft?
  7. TC = tooth count? I’ll have to keep digging and see if I can find the diameter. I believe the various Nissan KAs that use the RE4 (hardbody, 240sx, pathfinder maybe) use the same bell housing which would mean the starter location is the same and therefore the diameter (just guessing here). I’ll have to look up starter #s maybe that’ll get me a different tooth count. In other news I’ve discovered I need an A/T Control Unit to use the RE4 auto and a harness that goes from the tranny to the main harness that is eluding me. So, for the future readers that want to mate an auto tranny to your KA, don’t. Just go manual 🤦🏻‍♂️
  8. Hey @datzenmike what do you know about flex plates? I’m trying to locate one for the240sx RE4R01A and I’m coming up empty handed. Any idea if they’re interchangeable among other KA’s I would assume FWD vehicles are a no go but I honestly have no idea. My research hasn’t found an answer
  9. Some AT ECU info courtesy of Jim Wolf Man PN A11-B45 G08 early 91 240SX Fifty state S13-KA24DE Nissan PN 23710-53F10 Man PN A11-B45 G71 91-94 240SX Fifty state S13-KA24DE Nissan PN 23710-53F11 Man PN A11-C03 G61 91-93 240SX (conv) Fifty state S13-KA24DE Nissan PN 23710-59F10 Man PN A11-C04 G24 94 240SX (conv) Fifty state S13-KA24DE Nissan PN 23710-59F12 And if anyone wants to reference their ECU # for info on donor vehicle http://jimwolftechnology.com/wolfpdf/ECU-ID.PDF
  10. Another thing I have to consider is auto vs manual ecu. The engine I have is from a manual and I’m having trouble finding if an auto ecu will work with a manual engine. Logically it would I think? I would think Nissan would make one engine assembly/harness and just have an auto and a manual ecu. One would take/give input to an auto trans and one wouldn’t. Lots of information on auto>manual swaps not so many manual>auto. I can’t imagine why 🤦🏻‍♂️ Edit: AT vs MT TPS sensor PN AT part# is 22620-45V00 and the manual part# is 22620-53F00 Little info dump from Jatco if anyone’s curious RL4R01A 1990–1995 Nissan Pathfinder 1990–1997 Nissan Hardbody Truck 1998–2004 Nissan Frontier RE4R01A 1987–1999 Nissan Gloria 1988–1998 Nissan Pathfinder 1990–1997 Nissan Hardbody Truck 1989–1998 Nissan 240SX 1989–1999 Mazda MPV 1990–1992 Infiniti M30 1990–1998 Nissan Pathfinder 1990–1993 Mazda Pickup 1990–1997 Nissan 300ZX Non-Turbo 1992–1995 Mazda 929 1992–1997 Infiniti J30 1993–1996 Mazda RX-7 1997–2003 Infiniti QX4 1996–2004 Nissan Pathfinder 1999–2004 Nissan Frontier 2000–2004 Nissan Xterra –1989 Nissan Van 1996–1998 Nissan Skyline R33 GTS turbo 1996–2001 Nissan Stagea
  11. Found this gigantic doc on the RL4R01A and the RE4R01A. After a cursory comparison of the L and E and it appears that the L just looks at the ECU for TPS and Coolant temp. Whereas the E looks at Throttle position sensor, Closed throttle position switch, Wide open throttle position switch, Engine speed signal, A/T fluid temperature sensor, Revolution sensor, and Vehicle speed sensor. Document states that the E is electronically controlled and the L is hydraulic. So I think it’s safe to say that as long as I stay away from the E I should be golden. The doc, tons of info on the two trans http://pdf.textfiles.com/manuals/AUTOMOBILE/NISSAN/frontier/2001/at.pdf
  12. If I had no emissions equipment would the trans just function off of hydraulics or does it need some sort of ecu input? I’m keeping the EFI but removing the EGR and whatnot.
