I'm doing an engine swap from 2000 awd to 95 fwd engine, tranny, and rear end are pretty straight forward, but electrics...i've never done anything that major.

My plan so far is to take out the interior from both, and swap everything...

any one know what issues i might be faced with, or possible problems.

I will be doing this next friday.

Thanx

I'm not completely sure about this, but what about the ECU? Might need to swap that out with the engine and tranny. Otherwise, I can't think of anything else that you would want to worry about.

that's the whole point of "wire" swap.

i want to use 2000 ecu, along with the abs, alarm, and whatever else i used to have on 2000.

Wow! You will have the first USDM 25RS RA! That is so cool! As long as you swap all the electronics, you are cool!

:)

i will be setting up a site, and will take a lot of pictures

any suggestions on what i should put in it :)

light flywheel is one of the things i'll be doing, other then that i dont think i'll do much as i want to put a JDM engine in about a year (or less depends on debt :D)

I am sure i'll regret starting this project someplace half way inbetween :rolleyes:

dont know if any one cares but my swap is moving along... really really slow, but it's moving.

I am stuck on hooking up 2000 tank to 95 right now. I would like to put in the tank, and rear end, but i dont know how to hook up electrics. Without knowing that i cant progress in stages, i'll have to do ECU swap, and i dont have time to do all that at once..

Soo... any one has an idea on how to hook up 2000 gas tank to 95?

(car handles great with front end lowered 1.5") :D

Thanx

Kaos, i dont know if you read my lats posts, or Soobie gal gloats at i-club, but basically i've flipped my rs. So i bought a 95 fwd auto L, and i am currently in a process of swapping...everything :)

engine, tranny, AWD system (rear diff, driveline..., driveshafts, axeles...), gas tank, new shucks + sleves, all electrics, interior, dash, seats, side panels, gonna install sunroof (serously considering roof scoop - 900 vs 1500), rs bumper, sideskirts, headlights, bla bla...like i said, everything i can, i will.

currently the engine, gas tank, rear end are all in my garage, as soon as i figure the best way to go about electrics I am gonna dissasamble my 95. First mod after i get my car running will be 12.211.200.235 sticker across my hood :D
