I'm having a hard time finding any information on this. I have a 1988 Pathfinder 4x4 5spd that runs terrible. I've had nothing but trouble with the stock TBI since I've owned it, and I would much rather have MPFI. I have an opportunity to buy a 1993 Pathfinder 4x4 auto. I prefer the 2 door and 5spd over the 4 door auto. I would like to swap the VG30e from the 93 over to the 88. Has anybody done this, and what is involved? Is it as simple as swapping the engine and wiring harness, (and computer)? If the O2 sensors are different, can I swap the exhaust too? I believe the TBI engine bottom end is still ok, is it better/easier to just swap the intake and related parts? I thought I saw something about having to shorten the intake studs if I do this. I do like the idea of swapping to an entire engine that I know runs good. Does anyone know where I can find a write up of any of this being done? I need all the Information I can get. Thanks for your help.
Hey everyone, was hoping to get some good links to info about doing a conversion from throttle body to multipoint on my '87 pathfinder. I guess I should start by asking if it's worth the trouble for better gas mileage/upgradability in the future? Or is just a straight swap to a vg30e or vg33 the better choice? I'm no stranger to working on cars, but I dont exactly have the time/skill/shop to swap an entire engine. But I'd be happy to tear apart a top end to change headers or manifolds if it's worth the effort.
