Has anyone attempted this swap yet? These engines have shared chassis over seas so I assume they have similar enough mounting points. This is something I want to research before too long myself, but If anyone has hard data on the topic yet that would be pretty dope.

I've been wondering this too -- I imagine it's possible, but no one's dropped the money to do it yet.

I am going to attempt it in the next coming year. I will be posting about it. I am doing suspension chassis and safety first in preparation.

Hell yeah dude, I am excited to see how it goes! What model do you drive? I drive a 2015 Note S (manual) and have been thinking about it -- currently have a buddy that works at a Nissan plant that's gonna ask one of the head engineers he works with about what the best potential engine swap would be, and how realistic is it. Are you thinking about the stock MR16DDT or the Nismo turbocharged variant?

You can swap ANY engine/trans into ANY car if you are silly enough and born with money to throw away. I should know, I swapped a 500 hp. small block Chevy into a Pininfarina fine Italian sports car once to appease the hunger of an American Airlines pilot that liked to run cars at 200 mph on the airstrip. His bud, another pilot ran against him in a Pantera. Those two gentlemen were devoid of anything approaching common sense, I did not like to think of them as pilots with peoples' lives in their hands. But, boy, did they have the cash.............
