They have good heads on them, but I think the one most people go for are the QR25de.
People have made good power out of them, I don't think there is a RWD box that bolts on though.

Pretty good write up.

Sounds like it was used in the Navara/Frontier utes, so there must be a RWD Tranny...

We never got them, I guess you could import a box from the states, but I bet it would be as big as a house, cluncky and have horrible gear ratios.
You would be best to adapt an az6 gearbox onto it if you are seriously considering it. Also get a 2007+ motor as the old ones had heaps of troubles.
