ya i agree dont put a jap engine in a german car. if your gonna do that why not just buy a 240sx with a swap already done to it? imo i would swap the motor out with a 2.5 inline just have to change bell housing, ecu, motor mounts and an exhaust but like you mentioned you were gonna do that anyway, just my 2 cents
