Ke70 Engine Swap?!

Recommended Posts

hey guys & gals, I was wondering how and what would be the best way to drop an sr20de or det into a ke70 and what the prices for what is needed to make the engine bay ready. (Also what are the prices and best place to find one in South Austraila)

The motor is common, all the SSS pulsars have them, but the RWD gearbox setup means finding one from the 200SX style cars. They're getting pretty old and worn-out now, the last one was made 15years ago.


We have a SSS as a run-about and I think about it now and then, the torque is great and the power delivery smooth, but the 4AGE I dropped into one of the KE70s was a simpler process.


The Mazda MX5 drive-train is newer and probably just as easy (or difficult) to fit. Other than that its difficult to find modern light-weight RWD set-ups.

Buy the kit from that ke conversions guy, i think its about 500.


Sr20det and gearbox, not kuch change from 3000 these days.


Custom intercooler piping and exhaust, 1500guess


Fuel system - 500


Custom tailshaft - 400


Diff to handle the power and an lsd modified to suit your car - 2000 guess


Wiring - free if you can diy, 1000 if you can't


Front brake uograde to handle the power - 1500


Suspension to handle the power - 2000


All the small shit that comes up - 2000


Modification plates and or engineering - 500 to 1000


Racing seat so you can hang on to it - 500


Wheels and tyrea to handle the power - 2000


Obviously this is worst case scenario, and you may pick up bargains. But in my oppinion to do an sr20det ke70 properly its at least $10,000. Getting the engine in and running is like 1/4 of creating a good package. A ke70 with 200hp and shit susoension and brakes is going to be terrible.


Keep in mind that a complete running sr20det s13 with mods, good brakes and irs is like 8k 5yhese days.
