. After checking the engine it looks like a low mileage
by looking at the flywheel looks new, and not as rusty

Yeh that's wat I was thinking I will take it apart Tommow and inspect the cams and pistons, and start it from there

Is the auto engine cg13 ok ? and I haven't got the car yet that's a good thing, can I just get a 1.3 flywheel and manual gearbox and bolt it on? Does the engine fit in the manual micra as a swap with same mounts ?

I'm using an auto closed deck block on mine.

tbh I don't think the open/closed deck makes any major difference in terms of quality of HG seal compared to the choice of HG (I found the genuine nissan Victor Reinz HG maintains the best seal under 10psi on track and much easier to clean cos it stays intact when removing the head)

frank, I believe all the 1.3 manual fly, clutch, gearbox & rear mounts use the same configuration yea?

changed from what? my car's always been a manual hence nothing to change.
the closed deck block off an auto is no different to the open-deck block off a manual, same bolt holes etc.

yea a closed-deck auto block with 1.3 manual fly, gearbox, mount, selector rod, driveshaft and upgraded bigger clutch.

depending on intended boost, time spent at full boost (street or track use), max torque & power target, I'd suggest looking into upgrading the clutch, fuel system, intercooler, thicker k11 radiator from an auto, remapping with a programmable ECU daughterboard such as Nistune on a dyno.

also note a turbo will need higher octane fuel, will shread tyres, clutch & brakes faster and increase insurance. increased running cost overall basically

Ok after getting a flywheel to change over my auto engine I compare it and it's same size from auto and 1.3 flywheel, paid 25 pounds from scrappy and trying to sand of the rust while I was at it. Took 2 14mm nuts and others kinda rounded a bit so gona try a new socket 14mm with a long breakers bar might help. Cams will need taking off and cleaning them, anything I need to know if am doing it wrong ?

Frank I haven't got the car yet, I just bought engine to start building it and then put engine in a 1.0 Micra as it's cheaper to get hold off

i know, but if the 1.0 is a pre-facelift the running gear is different, if its a facelift then the 1.3 g/box and f/w will fit

Then you need a 1.3 non-coilpack flywheel, assuming the gearbox is from a non-coilpack car

right now I get you, so the flywheel I got is no good


and the flywheel I got today is from scrappy as frank said it's off a coil pack, so i need a none coil pack flywheel is that right ?
