help w/1.6 EFI install on 91 Sami

I am swapping a 1.6 EFI motor into a 91 EFI Sami. I have the adaptor kit ordered and the 1.6 pulled and ready to begin. Here's my dilemna: I want to keep the EFI. I understand that the adaptor kit does not include any wiring instructions and I've been told from many that this swap is both easy and difficult... The 1.3's already been pulled from the Sami and all of the wiring is still on the car. I have the ECMs from both the Sami and the Tracker. But, the wiring harness on the 1.6 has been cut and I have nothing else from the Geo. I do have a 88.5 wiring harness, carb, intake and all necessary components to turn the engine into carbed but I might be asking for a double whammy if I do this since the wiring on the Sami is set up for EFI. Could anyone help ease my pain before I begin? I'm already losing my hair over this project... Thanks in advance and I'll see ya'll at Zookimelt if I get this done in time...

Re: help w/1.6 EFI install on 91 Sami

as long as all the existing FI stuff in intact on the '91 it will bolt right up to the 1.6 engine. This swap is as easy as it gets, its as simple as removing and installing a 1.3

Re: help w/1.6 EFI install on 91 Sami

Just finished putting a 1.6-8V in my '90 EFI two weekends ago. Everything went together great -- when I pulled the 1.3 I just set the entire intake aside with everything still connected -wiring, fuel lines, vac lines. Then, once the 1.6 was in, I just bolted the intake back. Everything actually went back together easier because there is more room to work under the intake -- the 1.6 is a little taller. I am experiencing a little hesitation when the engine is cold but I am thinking that I might have a vacuum leak somewhere -- haven't had time to really check it out yet.

Extra power is great compared to 1.3!


I'll be back.

Did you use the EFI off of the 90 and swap it onto the 1.6?

Yeah.. I left the 1.3 intake manifold completely assembled and just bolted it to the 1.6.

I'll be back.

Re: help w/1.6 EFI install on 91 Sami

Why didn't I think of that?!? I was worried that I'd have to splice the Tracker wiring harness into the Sami...


Sometimes I think I need to have my head examined.
Other times I know I do.

Re: help w/1.6 EFI install on 91 Sami

You must be thinking of the 16 valve 1.6 swap... it's the one with the tough wiring conversion to keep the multipoint fuel injection. The 8 valve swap into an already EFI Samurai is supposed to be easy.
