Note: Modification History - A12-A14-A15-Z24. Finished working on fitting KA24DE with Twin Weber 38/38 and Eaton Supercharger. No Fuel Injection so no 'E' and Supercharged so 'R'.....hence - KA24DR
Build starts on Page #16, Post #159. Enjoy!

Yes, the car use to be Blue.
Finally got around to fitting the Z24 motor into my sedan. I cut the firewall and tranny tunnel to get it in. I probably didn't have to go to the extreme with the sawzall but it made things easier. The motor is sitting up on blocks at the moment. I have the right position, I just need to build some engine mounts. Any ideas on what I should use for rubber isolators?
Next, a tranny mount.
Engine is rebuilt so as soon as I am done with the mounts, the motor will come out for a fresh coat of paint as soon as I reverse the sump on the oil pan. More cutting and welding. The engine bay will get a new coat of paint as well.
Battery to the trunk to make room for the draw-through root style Eaton supercharger fed by a Holley 600 4 barrel.
The broken H165 rearend will be replaced by a H190 (spider gears welded of course)

Lots of work to do!

Looking good!
If it wasn't already a Super Bee-210, we could call it the Super Chicken Hawk.

Yes, use Nissan 720 pickup Z24 isolators and engine brackets.

As you can see by the supercharger crank pulley, I had to move the motor back to make room for the crank pulley and the radiator. If it wasn't for that, I would have not have had to cut the firewall.
Pull-a-Part has a pickup so I may look for the motor mounts. Thanks!

You're an animal Ernie! I'm loving it!
BTW, I never knew you'd been a member for so long! I've only been using the net for a few years. this was the first site I joined too. (been here for almost 7 years)
Drag racing is a disease that can only be cured by poverty. You wanna crank the quarter instead of the 1/8 with your new motor so I can compare apples with apples with my performance.

Just finished the tranny mount and the engine mounts are complete as well. Will post some photos soon.
Now that that's done, I can close up the tunnel and repair the firewall. The shifter sits about 6 inches back so I need to move the E-Brake. Next is to remove the battery mount and start fitting the Supercharger in. After I get that in place I can start fabbing the Holley Carb intake.
This is so fun, its almost to easy.

Is the shifter still in a comfortable/efficient place?

The shifter will be shorter and if I have to, I can reverse the shaft and bend it accordingly. It will work.

The oil pan was a pain in the butt to fab but is completed. Next I will be working on replacing the H165 rearend for a H190. All Fun!
