My 16v is done and HEY!!!!

Well I am not going to make this like the emmeys but I do have a few things to say. I would like to thank this whole board for all the great info and tech tips you have given me during this swap. But I would really like to thank the guys I have deal with directly. First in mind is Capn Crunch (a.k.a Pauly) Wahzoo and GRW. You might not know what you have done for me but hey I could not have done it with out you. Brent Belive me I will not forget you She would have not run tonight if I did not have you on the phone guiding me threw my trouble shooting. All I can say is that this board is a great thing and for all of you long timers who have stuck threw all of this recent [email protected] thank you. This board has served its purpose and that is to help backyard mechanic's like me. Once again Thanks By the way Excel22 I am coming to see you soon!! HEHEHEHEEH Here is a pic that I took of here running and and them mess I created doing the final touches of the transplant. I just wish this pic had sound cause I was a screaming like a champ when she turned over!!!!!!!

Re: My 16v is done and HEY!!!!

Terry I first have to say that I have never worked on cars before I have owned my zuk. My personal opinion is that I feel the swap was very easy. Now make sure you have all of your prep work done on your sami before you put the motor in. HERE IS MY BIGGEST REASON FOR THAT. YOu have to hoses coming out of the heater box the one on the right closest to the master cylinder needs to be rotated 90 degrees. WHich in case means have the hose pointing in the direction of the master cylinder. This little pointer will save you a bunch of time. I also feel it made things alot easer to have the tranny and motor mated together while setting the motor in. Caution while i tried to put the stater on the bolt holes did not match up correct (not a manufactures defect) I just did not line up the stater properly. I had to go and lossen up all the bolts on the adaptor plate to readjust. Case in point put the stater on while the motor is out. A few more tips. Make sure you have lots of fuel injection hose and some heater hose laying around. IF you want to read a good write up go to and go to the section of projects. He also has some good pointers for the conversion. All in all I feel this is a simple swap really due to the fact of all the grunt work was figured out by Trail Tough.

You asked me how does it run, well I have not had a chance to run it yet due to the fact I dont have the exaust hooked up yet but when I moved it to the front of my house she did have some scoot. Hope this helps and if you have anymore questions please ask away!
