    How diffecult is it to do this, what is there to set up when doing this? Driveshaft will not need any work right? Brakes need bleed, ujoints, and unbolt and bolt up?

    I am switching the stock d44 with a custom built d44 with lockers, gears and upgraded axles. I'm getting the unit next saturday 11-22 and I was thinking about doing the swap my self to save some $$ and get the experience. So far I have done things like installing my Warn Bumper/tire carrier and I modified it to carrie my HiLift and a Gerry can as well as extend out the spare tire mount to put everything behind the spare. Also I repplaced the skid for the gas tank w/ a Warn skid. Installed the Quicker Disconects and a Pro Comp adjustable track bar on the front. I'm interested in learning to make adjustable control arms for my Jeep as well. So fab work is my stronger side as a furniture maker and the finer things that need internol workings of motors ect.. are my weakest in experiences. And on that note I was an Air craft mech in the Air Force and that was the closest thing to mechanics I've done in life so far.

How to improve the performance of a ga 13 engine of a nissan sentra?

Let me tell you that I'm also working on that. :-)..
A nissan ga13ds, since it is carbureted, then it is limited on the amount of modifications that are of good value for money, since some of the top end modifications may cost you the price of a brand new nissan sentra + modifications.
Here are some things I did and are planning: -Replace the stock fuel filter assembly to a high performance one. (ex. to a High flow air filter, cold air intake, short ram intake, etc.) -switch to an electrical fuel pump. -upgrade exhaust system. (performance headers, high flow catalytic converter, larger exhaust pipes, racing mufflers. -upgrade to a better radiator (aluminum) + stronger and better fans. (a cooler engine runs a bit faster) -Install an oil cooler again for the same reason of better cooling. -(just my idea) Buy a performance carburetor. (this may be too costly because you might have have an intake manifold custom built) -Replace engine internals to race internals for better performance under High RPM. -Find or custom build racing camshafts to replace your stock. (this will result to better performance at high RPM levels but will not be efficient running the car in a lower RPM range).
You can also improve the performance of the car itself by doing the following: -Saving weight: -Aluminum wheels -carbon fiber/fiberglass/aluminum hood and trunk. -and any other stuff not necessary to you can be removed to save more weight.

I hope these ideas help.

Upgrading from stock exhaust to flow master cat much more preformance?

You will gain a marginal performance gain from the aftermarket exhaust system. Maybe 8-10 rear wheel horsepower. The real benefits would be the better exhaust note, but of course, that's a personal preference.

Whats the make-up of the r?otating assembly

It all depends on how much pressure you intend to run the turbo or supercharger at. If you won't exceed around 12 psi, you can keep the engine stock without damaging or shortening the engine life too much. If you wanna go bigger than that, you might need to upgrade the pistons and crank. And as for compression, either a charger or turbo will do the same thing as far as the compression is concerned, so if compression is too high for a turbo, it's too high for a charger also. And I'd start checking more for upgrading the fuel system than the engine assembly parts, cause you will need more fuel in the engine to compensate for more air coming in due to turbo or charger way before you need to strengthen the engine for the extra power.

What can i do to add horse power

The first upgrade for any vehicle is to upgrade the stock computer to an aftermarket. This gives the advantage to be able to adjust the air fuel mixtures to a more agressive level and can give you upto %30 more performance. Next upgrades are air filter and ehaust. Then you may be wanting to upgrade the fuel injectors and fit a large turbocharger. The airfilter and exhaust are the cheapest upgrades they can and often done first but in reality the ecu upgrade will give the best performance difference for $$.
