swapping a 1997 engine into a 1995

Post by MikeyG » Sat Jun 20, 2020 11:10 pm

Hey guys,

I'm going to pull a beauty of a 97' engine and gearbox and put it into a beauty shell of a 95. Is it a case of disconnect everything, swap, connect everything, woophee? The 95 is the old immobilizer whereas the 97 is the newer one - I'll bypass the old immobilizer but could that cause any problems?

Thanks again for all your help.

Thanks,

Possibly the old distributor will have to be installed too.

Oil pressure sender

Need to change over the IM , if a 16v there’s differences in the wiring/plugs :o

When I swapped a early 24v into a late car there was a plug, left over around the gearbox area.
But the car ran OK

Sorry I should have been clearer, it's a 2l to 2l. Same engine, just the 97 is so smooth but its body is rusted as heck.

The main thing was to check any immobiliser problems/do I have to bring the ECU with it?

The 97 will have a temic matched ECU , but you won’t need that. Save it as a set with the ing barrel & sell it on.

Use your existing Dizzy/IM / wiring
No need to remove you ECU
