LS series V8 - Nissan Patrol Auto
Nissan Patrol engine conversion using the LS1 / LS2 / LS3 V8 engine
- GU / Y61 - ZD30, 3L diesel automatic transmission
The kit consists of an adaptor housing which couples the new engine to the original diesel bell housing. The new adaptor housing measures 72 mm in length and spaces the Chevy engine away from the irregular shape of the Nissan Patrol firewall. No firewall modifications or re positioning of the original transmission is required.
The automatic transmission is retained in its original location along with the original torque converter and flex-plate. A specially machined crankshaft adaptor supplied with the kit bolts to the rear of the GM engine using the GM auto flex plate which is bolted to our flex plate stiffener. The adaptor converts the rear crankshaft bolt pattern from GM dimensions to standard Nissan 7 bolt crank dimensions allowing the Nissan flex-plate and torque converter to be connected to the engine.
An adaptor housing cover plate, which protects the bottom of the automatic transmission from water and dust entry, as well as all the required bolts, nuts and washers are also supplied with the kit.
An oil pressure sender adaptor is supplied in the kit. The adaptor allows the original Nissan sender to be fitted to the LS engine.
A water temperature adaptor is also supplied in the kit. This adaptor allows the original Nissan Temperature gauge sender to be fitted to the LS engine.
NOTE 1: The factory automatic transmission will require a stand-alone computer to control shifting of the transmission once the original engine and ECU is removed.
NOTE 2: This kit is designed to replace the ZD30 3.0L diesel engine only. A cross-member, front and rear tail-shafts will have to be fitted from a manual ZD30 Patrol in order to use the bolt in engine mount kit MFK1820ZD.
