    Nissan Tsuru info

    I've been on You Tube and have seen a few and heard about the Nissan Tsuru, which is the Sunny and Sentra. I heard they're big in Mexico. Interested in doing a Sentra to Tsuru swap, prolly SR20det. Anyone have any pics or examples of any nice ones. Info on swaps would be appreciated, too. Datsunfreak chime in, since your the Nissan guru.

    As mentioned, that's really just headlights, tail lights, and badges. All fairly easy to get. :tu:

    prolly SR20det.
    FYI, if you're talking about Tsuru engines, they all came with the GA16DE, same engine as our base model B13 Sentras. But SR20DET swaps are fairly easy and cheap to buy, coming in both the JDM Sunnys and Pulsars. :tu:

    Photos of nice B13 Sunnys abound, B13 Tsurus not so much... :P

    They were only sold in Mexico/Central America, and most were sold into slavery as taxi cabs. :?

    gotta be pretty dedicated to swap all the stuff onto a usa spec car, but it makes a HUGE difference, esp. the small boompers 8)

    The problem is, for small bumpers you need Sunny bumpers, not Tsuru. The Tsuru has the same bumpers as our Sentra E/XE. Yes, dedication indeed... 8)

    Heres A nicely done B13 Tsuru Swap.

    The front bumper is off of a Nissan Sunny though, as is the Grill.



    The Tsuru Originally came with a Carburated GA13 engine, but the SuperSaloon had the GA16DE Fuel injected motor and all the power options. The car is essentially the same as a B13, with the exception of the interior and brake system downgrades. The non SuperSaloon models didn't have power steering either, for the sake of keeping production cost down. The New Tsuru however comes with a GA16DNE, which is a motor that Ive never even seen before.

    If you want to do the swap, buy a B13 SE-R then put the Tsuru conversion on it, which is all over ebay as a whole kit with optional black housing lights. As for the SR20DET swap it is pretty much bolt in if you have an SE-R because it comes with an N/A SR in it. The non SR equipped Sentras are a pain to swap an SR into, you need to change axles, motor mount brackets, transmission brackets, and that's assuming its one equipped with a manual transmission because if its not, that a whole different can of worms.

    Or you could go across the border and pick up a Tsuru for about 8k out the door. Check it out at the official Nissan Tsuru website, lol this car has its own website!
