Better stick to the J series its bullet proof look awesome all painted and sound great even with 3 main bearing crank although later Js might have 5 mains but can be transplanted with J15, J16 or if you can get a mexican or central/south american J18.
A member on Ozdat is supercharging a J15 after removing his j13 look him up he has a wagon but cant find link atm on his build thread.
I would import a J18 for cheaper all up imported rather than rebuilding a J13 locally.

I know nothing on the J motor. Listen to D. J motor might be the best to stick with.

A15 is a better motor than J15 lighter and with more HP. Just typically swap really, fabricate custom motor mounts, custom gearbox mount, custom exhaust, custom tailshaft, etc.

Forget the J series engines, only good for forklifts or boat anchors.
Driven lots back in the day and believe me they are crap.

It'd be pretty straight forward, engine in gearbox in. Make mounts.

Lots of space and good potential for ancillaries ; )

Forget da jay...... Excellent boat anchor and also works well as a four-pot for some plant in the garden.

You guys are too harsh! It is actually more reliable than an A series as its built like a boat anchor and then some. Depends what you want Im getting a softer spot for the older Nissan motors they are underrated. A15 will make more power but turbo would come close.

I drove a 411 with a j15 with twin carbs from an MG and was smooth and although not fast was nicer than the engine it copies the twin carbed MG 4 cyl. They are heavy, old but bullet proof and sound very sweet if you like to cruise they are clean and simple.

Otherwise try for an R16 which was also available in the 411 SSS and fits a fairlady 5 speed and lsd h190, with 5 mains or H20 from u20, A melbourne tuner Lou mondello recently got 118kws and 180lbs of torque atw from one and bolts up to J box using R or H bellhousing. You cant beat a H20 2 liter for cost, reliability and torque. They are the strongest 4 cylinder every made by Nissan and the famous U20 is based on this beast. Stock 99hp and should fit as its the same length as the R16 but taller due to longer stroke but still heaps of room in 411 bay height.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nissan_H20#H20

They r heavy but bearings and rods like a diesel engine used all over the world for big forkies with all parts still available new everywhere even cheaper and better replacements parts than for the L series. New heads, cams, cranks you name it.
