1995 SL1
Default 1995 SL1 engine swap

Need to put a new engine in a 95 SL1, want to use a 00-02 SOHC engine. i think this will work as a long block (and drill the collant sensor hole). has anyone perchance done this already? If so am I right?

Default Re: 1995 SL1 engine swap

Me too; I'd like to find a reasonably priced used engine with the lowest mileage possible. My 95 SL1 has got chocolate milkshake in the coolant tank. I'm considering trying to find an engine/trans combo and do both at the same time. Mine has 180K miles and the trans works perfectly, but if I can find an engine and trans with around 100k to put in I may do just that. I'd hate to go through the trouble of the engine replacement to have the trans chuck a diff pin 2 months later. I could keep the original trans for a backup if needed. Thoughts?

If you can wait, i'll be trying this regardless of any external input some time after the holidays. Probably going to do trans as well seeing that mine had some interesting shifting issues. Seemed to be ok finally on the day the motor kacked but...anyways when this comes to pass I'll post with results, pictures, etc. Someone must have done this already though, I can't be THAT original in my thinking.
