g18 swap in a sammy

I allready know you can swap the g16 (sidekick) into a sammy I'm looking for someone who's done the g18 (dohc 1800 cc). Questions I have are....did you need a kit? did you use the tranny transfer case etc. if you didn't use a kit did you fab your own engine mounts. did you have to extend the frame. did you use the dohc's radiator . so many things follow..

my sammy
1987 single cam 8 valve 1.3 liter 1300cc (bone stock)
high flow cat custom exhaust
paint: red w/black hood race decals (7hp each)
3" lift
30x9.50's
still running strong she'll get 75mph on the highway
(unless there is a head wind)

Re: g18 swap in a sammy

I think Zukiworld.com was doing one, but last I heard it was not finished. From what I sew they installed the engine and tranny with a short intermediate shaft to the T-case. Trail Tough has done the 2.0 swap utilizing the stock Samurai tranny and says the motor fits in better than the 1.8 liter. Sounds like a winner to me!

Where are you in Colorado? there is a guy here in Colorado Springs, that has a 2.0 with an auto tranny in his tin top sammy. fits pretty good but be prepared for some serious fabbing and electrical work.
