Great write up! I booked marked this. My hatch is a 2011 with the 1.8. It only has 30K and has started with the dreaded cold start up tick/tap piston slap. Going to Nissan next week and hopefully they will replace the short block. I will be paying off my car in a few months and plan to drive it 'til i reach a couple hundred thousand miles at least. I've swapped out motors and transmissions before and i appreciate your in-depth and detailed pictures and instructions. I will probably doing this same motor swap but hopefully not for a year or two. I also don't drive aggressively or beat on my car. It's my daily driver and i need it to last. Besides my days of beating on a car have been long over. Once again thanks!
