Nissan engine in a Wrangler, yes or no?

Hello Everyone! I am a new member. Where do I begin...
Ok, I am a mechanic. I own a 1990 Yj, a 1982 Cj7, 2011 compass,1996 Ram 1500 pickup gas, 2 Nissan 240sx's s13 one with a ka engine and the other with a freshly rebuilt sr20det on an engine also is rhd ,anyway. This post is in reference to my yj. The yj had a 4cy engine in it, I pulled it out to rebuild at first. The transmission is a ax 15 manual re manufactured beast. I put this trans in because the ax 5 just was not enough for me. I got the adapter kit and custom cut drive shafts, re built the transfer case, installed a slip yoke eliminator kit.Its a awesome setup.I had low compression on the motor so I pulled it. At the same time I spun a bearing on my nissan, welded a rod bearing to the crank.I re built the bottom end, got a great deal on a re built head and she is all back together.So i have these 2 vehicles with the motors out, and I started thinking.I previously owned a 1991 Nissan Skyline Gtr with a rb26dett converted from twin turbo to a garret 440. Engine had 600 hp.Complete amazing all wheel drive car. So I was considering purchasing that engine and putting that into the 240sx, since I love that motor, and putting the sr20det red top in YJ.I know I can pull it off. I just wanted to know if anyone else has done it. The Yj would be for a snow vehicle and some offroading for fun. SR20DET stock, has 202 HP 203 torque. Mine has more. 6 cyl Jeep Engine has 190hp 220 torque. Please share your thoughts with me, any help would be great.

Like everyone has said, because this is the newbie check-in area, you may not get the answers you are looking for. I suggest you check out this forum area and post your questions there, I think you'll get a better response.
