swap is finally done


My swap is finally done. Bought from JDM Engine Depot for $1200 shipped out of NJ. Took 2 days only to get here. Wiring harness was done by GT Revva. Missing sensors were provided to me by GSX-R 1000. Bought Ebay Universal Intercooler and piping kit, ebay muffler, K&N cone filter, APC oil breather, Blitz BOV (came with motor). I did basically everything else by myself. No engine hoist in this swap, just good ole muscle and elbow grease. Dropped old motor on a tire, lifted car up high enough and slid it out, then reversed steps for putting new motor in. I might add that its a pretty heavy :censored:ch Started this project March 19th, 2010 and with the help from my cousin GT Revva, it started up on April 13th, 2010. By the way, I give an enormous thanks to Revva for coming up and helping me troubleshoot this thing, otherwise I'd prolly still be trying to get it started. Thanks man. Hope you all enjoy the pics (by the way, this thing hauls :censored: :censored:ss :pepper:

nice stuff man i also got a engine from jdmengine depot and it also came with that bov. it was the same price even. so how good is the motor? i am almost finished with my swap to the paseo, just need a map sensor and a mount bracket, but it runs so far. took the shop a couple of weeks to figure it all out but theyre gettin there. you should put up a vid to see how it runs, if thats not asking too much, :2thumbsup:that is.

I like the big Maglite between the driver seat and the door jab!!! :deal:

"Oh, come on, I mean... 50 5-left and stop 2-right half minus braking into K-right 90 maybe and absolute crest 500. What the hell am I supposed to make of that when I’m flat out over a jump sideways at 90mph?!?!!"

That looks really good. I'm jealous because you get personal help from Trevor. We have been friends for a few years now and has helped me a lot but he couldn't pick me out of a lineup. I think some t-bar clamps might be in order.

The motor is great and runs very strong. even had new oil in it!! I didn't get a MAP sensor either man, but the bracket i used from the old MAF sensor that was from the 3E. I will work on getting a video up soon, as soon as i find a suitable kill that i want to exploit, lol

The maglite is for anti theft and also for finding peoples house numbers when i'm deliverying pizza at night in dark neighborhoods, :thumbup:

At the top of each person's post are two 'buttons', they are
labeled [QUOTE] and [REPORT].

By clicking on the [QUOTE] button, a window opens up with the
poster's original post (in quotes) and then you can proceed to
type in your reply... when finished, simply click on the
[POST REPLY] button at the bottom of the message and you're
good to go!

The reason you don't is because due to the fact that one of
your photos is so LARGE it pushes those buttons off the
screen (unless you use the horizontal scroll bar at the
bottom of the screen)

If you could resize the one photo to no larger than
640 pixles wide)

Anyway... the buttons are there!
