    Nissan TB48 - worth it?

    Does anyone here have any experience with these TB48 motors?

    I recently picked one up quite cheaply, looking at the size, it's quite large, similar to a barra, maybe a little longer. The sump is really deep too.

    I have pulled all the accessories off and will post some pictures over the next few days with the cylinder head off, engine stripped down ect.

    I am thinking about using one for a project, there seem to be a few parts available for them, not to the extent of a 2j though.

    Oil pump gears seem to be a common fault, as well as the timing chain tensioner

    Short answer is yes.

    What are your power goals? Do you need a lot of torque?

        Yeah. The people over here love them. I've seen plenty with decent turbos strapped to the sides enduring some serious abuse.
        Torque sells tow cars.
