crazy
dropping VG33e block from 2002 xterra into my 1995 wd21 pathfinder. any horror stories/advise?
my understanding is that aside from the a/c comp lines and exhaust manifold->catalytic convertor differences; everything else pretty much falls into place. from the engine mounts to the transmission. plus many suspension parts, but i digress.... any guidance is much appreciated!

and yet i digress...... NPORA has a lot of info regarding a vg30e to vg33e swap. little of it relates to the 2002 xterra/frontier vg33e, which shares the same accessory layout, but has different electrical connecters and hoses/tubing. i,ve got the same project going on now too. i'm going to use the vg30e upper intake manifold assembly and exhaust manifolds, with vg33e accessories, alternator, a/c comp and ps pump pulley. distributor spindle from vg30e fits into vg33e and hopefully will work. vg33e distributor is not compatible it seems. sure other things will come up this weekend upon install. trans should work just fine as much of the front suspension from 200 -04 xterra's. check out NPORA, they cover WD21 swaps to newer versions in detail.

I suspect the starter and bell housing, etc, won't be clocked where you need them to be either.
