Re: Engine/Trans Swap Guide?

Just to make sure I understand - you want to end up with:


SW2's body
DOHC engine (SOHC block, SW2's head)

I have done some very brisk accelerations due to traffic but it's hard to tell because they usually involve turns so it slides more to the side first

I'm pretty sure Low Saturn mentioned going to a homecoming. You'd have to send him a PM though, as he doesn't visit this forum much anymore.

Well, that's interesting information. Thanks!

Re: Age and Mileage (MPG)

Probably a combination of all the above

To be fair, I need to double the mileage on my current SC2 to hit 300k. I haven't seen a decrease on my SL2 when I went from 100k miles to 200k miles

Re: Coolant Loss... Head Gasket?

That's only on the 3rd gen DOHC with the black plastic intake. OP has a 98 (2nd gen) with metal intake - unless engine has previously been swapped.

Re: 2nd gen steering wheel swap, for a 3rd gen wheel?

You'd also have to change from the 3-wire 2nd gen horn with the integrated relay that always eventually fails, to a 2-wire horn if you haven't already done that.
