    im swappin a jdm gsr into my 97 del sol(virgin swapper lol), well ive got it bolted in and everything, but i broke my evap canister, do i need it? is there anyway around it? i cant find anything about where some of these hoses go, it seems like there are like five extra hoses, is there any resource for this? my hanes manual doesnt help me at all, and is there a company that makes wiring extensions? since the wire plugs are on the opposite side

    What year is the motor, what trim is the DelSol, Haynes manuals suck, get a Helms for your car, and the car your motor came in. With proper manuals, you should be able to make your Delsol harness work, or just get a harness from a junkyard and a soldering gun and go to town.

    OBD2 Engine into and OBD1 car. You're gonna have to convert the harness. There are conversion kits out there, this is probably your best option. Or try pulling an OBD2 harness off a junkyard car. Other option would be to convert the engine to OBD1. Not sure what this intales but I know there's extra sensors on OBD2 and the injectors have a different plug.

    Oh, my bad, sorry.:doh: You should still get the engine harness for LHD car. It'll make it a lot easier then splicing a lot of wires to make them long enough to reach across. Other than that, it should plug right in. You got the ECU for the motor, right?

    I want to say yes, that is the cable you need, but I am not 100% sure.

    Helm Incorporated: Product Search Engine


    On the search put the year of the vehicle, and model, then select "All Types" in Document type, you're looking for the Shop manual.

    If you have to get one, than get the one for the car your motor came in I would suggest the Electrical Troubleshooting Manual for your Delsol too though if you don't get the full service manual, the Haynes is fine for brakes, body, etc...but if you run into detailed electrical, and wiring issues from the swap, it's a good thing to have. And believe me when I say that a service manual for your car is the best upgrade you can possibly buy.
