Default Swapping a 97 sc2 dohc into a sohc s chassis??? How?

Ok so my sisters car was clipped by a snow plow last night and the driver side is ruined. The engine still runs great and barely burns oil. Ripped the wheel back. There’s a few cars in my series that have blown up motors. But they are all single cam. What do I need to do to swap the dohc into the sohc chassis? Hers is a 97, and there is a 99 sc1 that looks identical to hers and a few 95-2000 sc1 / sl1 cars for sale.

Need to know ASAP

Otherwise if you are in the Midwest/Wisconsin area I have a smoking deal for you for a great engine!!!

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Others will chime in, but i'm sure you need to swap everything that the DOHC engine has...bcm/pcm, harnesses....etc.

To put a '96-'99 DOHC into a '96-'99 SOHC...you swap engines, PCM and exhaust from the engine to the cat-con. That's all, if it's a 5spd. If it's an automatic you also have to swap to the DOHC's automatic otherwise you end up with, at best, a 1-gear-wonder transmission.

If swapping from '96/'97 to '98/'99 you have to keep the fuel rail that belongs in the car and keep the DOHC injectors with the DOHC engine.

Unless a '00-'02 engine is under $100 with a 10 year no-questions-asked guarantee, it's not worth the hassle of putting into a '91-'99.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
