I just can’t believe Nissan engineered and released the setup that is in my truck right now. Im pretty sure that rear end has been changed to something higher than stock (I do vaguely remember the PO saying something about it as well but he unfortunately died I think sooo...)
Earlier this week when I had a payload as pictured below, a loaded KA, an engine hoist, 2 jacks, 2 jack stands and an engine stand, 1st gear was still worthless.
I mean it did do fine in 5th at a constant interstate 70-80mph for a 4hr round trip to Orlando and back..but just wow. There was absolutely nothing left in that right pedal. Scream-ing.
And I totally get it the that the L20B is designed as a high redline engine and that screaming is subjective to someone who normally drives modern cars.
I get it, I get it.
Anyway, we’ll just wait and see what the KA swap does with whatever is in that ?.
Maybe it’ll be just right (to me).
