Though it is a fact that SD33 is a stone age motor but it has its advantages.
- It is a cheap Engine to buy (only if you can find one)
- It is a relible Engine if you rebuild it with genuin parts (difficult to find)
- It has that SIX Cylinder Diesel engine sound. Which to my ears is MUSIC.
The SD33 is a 3.3L (3,246 cc/198.1 cu in) Straight 6 diesel engine, most known for its use in the Nissan Patrol MQ (160 series) from 1980-1983[SUP][/SUP] and the Nissan C80. The SD33 produces 98 hp (73 kW).
