    Hey guys,

    I need some help with a swap I'll be doing this weekend. Any input is greatly appreciated!

    Ok, I have a 94 RS Integra right now and I will be taking that engine and transmission out of it and putting it into a 94 GSR shell I'm picking up this week.

    This is basically an un-bolt, remove, install and bolt back up procedure correct? Never done a swap before so I'm not totally sure ..

    One thing I am worried about is the compatibility of the exhausts .. the exhaust on the car is for a GSR but I don't know if the headers are different or the same ..

    Also, how long would it take two people to do this job? I'm hoping to get it done in 2 days .. I miss having a car sooooooo much!

    I found a great article on this site with help on removing an engine, thank you pissedoffsol [​IMG] so I got that .. besides an engine hoist and obvious wrenches, sockets, etc. what else would I be needing? I'm asking because I don't know how much a tranny weighs and if I can lower it and bolt it back on just with me and one other person who will be helping me ..

    I really wish I could find a step-by-step guide to assist me with this but no luck so far .. [​IMG]

    Again, any insight into this would be greatly appreciated! I need to get as much info to do this before this weekend .. snow flies real soon and I really don't want to be left doing it then ..

    Thanks in advance!!

    Simon

    the header and cat for the RS are different

    2 people should definatly be able to finish it in 2 days

    other than the cat its pretty much plug and play

    use the RS ECU and the RS engine harness
    use the RS header and the RS cat

    Awesome! Thanks for the help man! [​IMG]

    Job is definitely not looking as monumental as I originally thought
