    1985 sentra box

    hey jnc,
    I have a 1985 nissan sentra, its once had a rare cd17 diesel which ran like a sewing machine until about 206,000 miles, it lost oil pressure and died. Heres some pics of it with xxrs.., it has old school nismo/addco sway bars (yes they make them for this model). Bilstein front and rear shocks, 6kg front and 4 kg skunk2 coilover sleeves from an rsx and redrilled 240sx camber plates.




    and a current pic with weds autobahn mesh.


    I was totally bummed my Prized cd17 went out until this showed up. The cd17 block turns out
    being a C series engine shares an extremely large amount of similarities to the CA18s block.
    Furthermore with the B11 chassis being pre 2000 lbs, very much fun should result from a decent amount of power.



    more later I guess xD

    Also got one of these cool relay boxes and a complete CA18DE harness
    out of a 1989 pulsar.

    Swapped the differential+ bearings for one from a T11 stanza to suit the
    1985 sentra cv axles. This is a transmission for a 1987 pulsar with the
    ca16de


    installed just after bearing preload checks.


    Used the CD17 dust shield/trans plate, and 1987 pulsar CA16 flywheel+ clutch


    deleted the power steering pump also, with a rear mount 1986 200sx alternator.

    Placed all of the mounts U12 bluebird passenger side mount and the other CD17 engine mounts.


    test fit went well.




    also redid all the harnesses to suit the sentra, didnt get pics of that though

    Lovin this build. I like seeing modern motors put into most older imports. Especially something this uncommon on the roads.

    thats nice, we only had the ca18 as a DET, with turbo in what we call 200sx and you have as a 240sx. never seen it with a fwd gearbox. thats interesting.
