Default Engine Swap

Hi,
I have a trashed out 2001 SC2 with a good motor and a nice 1997 SL2 with a bad motor. Can I swap out the good 2001 motor to the 1997 SL2, and what all would I have to change out to make it work?....Computer, Cat Con, 02 sensors?....etc? All help appreciated. Thanks

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Default Re: Engine Swap

I just finished installing an engine (not motor... motors are electric) ---in a 97 SL2.... Pretty simple job really....

I believe it's going to be pretty straightforward for your changeover....

Do you have a lift, or are you planning on going "the wrong way" - and taking the engine/transaxle out through the top???

I do the swap on a lift with an driveline cradle stand that I built (I've got a couple of them) -- lifting the body off the engine, which stays stationary... It's easier that way - with less chance of breaking stuff.....

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
