Recommended Posts

Hi Guys

 

So I have a Nissan 1400 pickup. Not sure what u guys call it but I live in South Africa that's all its called over here. It has currently a Toyota 4AGE in it but hopefully soon it will have a Nissan engine as Hart once more. Will post some pictures soon.

Nice vintage pickup, D T. Welcome here, and do post more photos.

 

Taller roof than many 1200 pickups. I've read that at least some SA pickups had taller roof for taller polulace. 

 

Called 'Bakki' or something like that in SA ??

Hi

 

Thanks for all the compliments so far. Really proud of my little pickup.

 

@banzia - I would love to keep the 4AGE in there but its time is done. Striped it out the other day and found I sorta cracked the head. Now as reliable as these motors are they don't like being abused either. So next up is probably a VG30DETT, or something with similar power.

Thanks Steve

 

It might look vintage but it's actually a 2003 model. We got them here until 2008. And yeah, the taller roof does give it some more room inside.

Is that well used ashtray on the cowl 'original equipment' ??

Great looking little truck!!!

 

Personally, I would MUCH rather have that 4A-GE in there. Far superior in almost every way.

I would of loved to keep it and turbo that motor, but it's stuffed. So I'm looking at other options now.

Welcome to Ratsun.

 

So the truck is 13 years old and already the engine has been swapped? How long ago? What came in it? A J15 or something?

 

In my opinion, a VG30 is too large for that truck and not that great of an engine anyway. Sounds like you've got your mind made up, so I won't try to change it, but if that were my truck, I'd rebuild the 4AG and keep it.

 

I did a 4AG 20V swap a few years ago on a Sunbeam Alpine and that sucker rips.
