Xmarquez: I do not think so. The two vehicles are configures differently if I am not mistaken. The Skyline's are Rear wheel drive vehicles and the engine is an in line configuration.
Your car is a front wheel drive where the engine is transversely mounted and it's a V-6.
I would also love to have a Skyline turbo. They are AWESOME!
Sorry. ........................

Does a nissan skyline r32 coupe have 2 seats or 4 seats

The Nissan Skyline R32 Coupe has 4 Seats although not very spacious in the back but do serve a purpose kind of.

(Rear seat is for 2 passengers only as it has a raised middle part to the seat due to the drive shaft tunnel)

I have a r32 nissan skyline gtst and oil is seaping through intercooler pipes

sounds like the turbo is pulling oil through, have you noticed any difference in power or smoke from the exhaust? if so then the oil seals are shot in the turbo.

Can i fit a turbo skyline engine (rb30) in a nissan sentra 1987


Thanks for using FixYa.

The answer is... Yes you can... All it requires is patience and skills. You'd need to squeeze the engine in your car. This might require you to cut some chassis parts in your engine bay just to accommodate such big and powerful engine. Best wishes with the engine swap buddy.

Thanks. Have a good one.

Engine compatible

Yes. However it is a very expensive swap $5000 to $8000 to do it right. You will need the 1J or 2J engine, transmission, wiring harness, ecu, and alot of other pieces to do the swap. The engine brackets will need to be modified and you will have to upgrade your brakes. This kind of swap requires a good knowledge of the Toyota Supra and the engines. I do not recommend this swap for a beginner. A cheaper way is to take a 7M-GTE and upgrade the internals and turbo.

Skyline car???

the R32 + 33 skylines are good motor cars, from a 2nd hand point of view, make sure they have been maintained and not excessivly modified, as a nissan mechanic the biggest problem with the skylines are when people increase the turbo boost without bigger intercoolers or fuel systems, this will eventually destroy the motor.
If you can find one, buy an unmodified one, or one that has been modified correctly.
Also be aware the timing belt and platnum spark plugs neede to be replaced every 100,000km or 60,000miles, this can be an expensive job...

Potiental problem with turbo's, r32 skyline gtr

bauer s22: Talk about frustration? I spent 10 minutes giving you an answer and when I went to post it, the screen went gray and it asked me to confirm the entry with numbers and letters and then click ok. O kept doing it and then it goes. THIS PAGE HAS EXPIRED!!!! ARRGH!
I'll give it a shot again.
Here would be two simple ways you could check the turbos out.
1. Get a screw driver with a "LONG" shaft.. 2 feet or more. it must be thin like the most common phillips screw driver. The handle should be like the smaller one as well. If you don't have one, get a reasonable facsimile. With a friend working the throttle, place the metal end on the turbo, fairly close to the center where the intake and exhaust housing come together. Put the other end to your ear. You want to have you ear solid to the end of the handle. The screw driver will actually act like a stethoscope. The long shaft seems to magnify the sound. You do both turbos.
2. Remove the hoses from where they clamp onto the intake side of the turbo. Carefully, with your index finger and thumb, hold the tip of the turbo shaft and see if it does more than rotate. It should only rotate. If there is any axial play, then the bearings are failing. Also look for oil around the opening of the turbo and in the hose. If you find any oil, then the seal in the turbo has failed and what will occur, is the oil will contaminate the Catalytic converter as well as possibly harm the o2 sensor,
The r32 is a healthy engine and typically runs 12 pounds of boost or more. I would highly suggest buying a boost gauge which (if possible one which has vacuum (VDO) and will read at minimum 20 psi.
You need to invest in a turbo timer if you don't have one. If you do not practice allowing the car to sit and idle for a minute or more prior to shutting the engine off, you will fry the oil in the turbo. Every time the engine is shut down, it will actually get hotter before it cools down this is why it s important to allow it to idle a little after running boost.
Anyway, If I can help, I am familiar with a lot of the aspects of the toy you have. I am truly jealous!
Just ask and I do my best. I'm a Nissan Master tech and have been swing iron on these products since 1968.
