hello everyone,

i am finally going to order my swap from HMO tommorrow!!!! B18C1 into a EG coupe(EJ1)

there complete swap comes with this...
- Motor
- Hydraulic Tranny (S80, Y80)
- ECU (P72)
- Axles with Half Shaft
- Shift Linkage
- Stock Motor Mounts *
- Alternator
- Starter
- Clutch
- Flywheel
- Intake Manifold
- Exhaust Manifold
- Fuel Rail
- Injectors
- Distributor
- Engine Harness
- Comes With All Sensors Needed
- LSD Tranny (Optional +$300) im getting this.

im going to check what condition the timing belt is in. hopefully the clutch will be in good condition averaging about 35,000 miles on there motors.

THIS IS GOING TO BE MY FIRST TIME SWAPING AN ENGINE!!! and i want to make sure i am prepared...and i know things wont go perfect, but im hoping for the best.

now when swaping the motor, this is what i have come up with to get the SOHC out. drain the oil, coolant, tanny fluid, etc. then unhook and take out the wireing harness(maybe even lable the wires). unhook the axles, shift linkage, and clutch.
there will probobly be little things that i will find in order to take it out, but for the most part am i on the right track?? and what other infomation can you guys give me??

also, im giong to pull the motor out from the bottom, and put the new one in from the bottom. and i will have 2-3 friends helping me also, 1-2 which have done the swap.

any other information will be GREAT!!! thanks for reading all of this, im really excited about this project and right now i think im just going to ramble on....so im going to stop typeing.

thanks again,
-Mike

Go fast, Go Cheap
it seems like you have everything, It isn't really nescessary to drain you old engine but i don't think it will hurt, depends what you plan on doing with it.

how much is the swap going to cost you? 3800 or so after shipping and an lsd?
by the way the whole jdm motors being pulled at 35k is a myth, try twice that. i think you should deff. label hoses and such it will make things easier on you no matter how expierienced you are.

im excited for your swap so good luck and show us pics when done.


WHY SKIMP ON A NEW TIMING BELT AND WATER PUMP!

the single cam has 182,XXX miles on it right now :eek: but still runs hard, seriously, on a stock motor, with a slipping clutch, i ran a 16.3.

yeah, im going to lable the hoses and the wires. and idk what im going to do with the old motor, hopefully i can sell it. it may be high milaged, but it runs likes its brand new.
and the oil would have to be changed in the single cam anyway, so i might as well just drain it if im giong to sell it.

i will definatly be taking pictures and notes on this swap!!!

anyone here want a motor??? B)

I would change the t-belt, water pump, tensioner(sp?), and maybe the clutch when the engine is out.

Dont be a bitch, get an oem timing belt and waterpump and an act clutch.
[post=530361]Quoted post[/post]​

ACT clutches kick ass!! And yes, do go ahead and change timing belt, water pump, and your tensioner spring BEFORE you put it in the car! You will pat yourslf on the back later on for doing it now. Good luck, and FAST times to ya :D

Up to you but I would also recomend a lighten flywheel also since you will be working on the clutch and all.
