Nissan Sentra Radio Antenna

OK, dumb question. I own a 1992 Nissan Sentra 4-D, 1.6 and I am in the process of getting it pretty much back to stock. The problem I am having is the stock radio is now hooked up to the wiring harness, but there is no traditional hole for the antenna. If there is a special connector to bridge the two together, I would really appreciate so advice. Where to get it, what it is called, etc.?

Also, one other question, can a 2.0 be placed in a Sentra that has a 1.6 but the factory called for both in this vehicle. Would it require a new harness, computer, etc.?

Thanks much,

Let me guess - the hole on the factory head unit that is meant for the antenna lead is small-gauge, and the wire in the car is larger? If so, you probably have an adapter plugged onto the factory antenna wire. Both of my Nissans had small antenna wire plugs, and to use the antenna wire with an aftermarket deck, I had to buy a small (4-6" long) adapter that would plug onto my antenna wire and adapt it to a larger size to fit the standard-sized antenna jacks on the aftermarket head units. See if you can grab the end of the antenna and pull it off to reveal the proper-sized hole.

As for the engine swap, it can be done but will require at the least, the engine, ECU, engine bay harness, possibly the chassis harness, possibly the transmission (if the transmissions are different for those two engines), and if the transmissions are different, most likely you'll need axles, some sort of adapter plates for mounting the transmission to the car, and maybe even wheel hubs as well (for receiving the different axles). It's a very big job.
