I would use the 1st gen radiator, but the inlet and outlet is on the opposite side. those would be some silly hoses.

Where are the inlets and outlets on the radiator for the vulcan engined Probe ?

Maybe it would be more suitable.

Otherwise I would take a trip down to the junkyards with a tape measure and see if you can find another car thats got the right size core with better placement of the inlet/outlet.

Otherwise you'll need to go custom.....I dont know if you guys get the same deals from ASI, but through ebay they will make you up a custom alloy radiator for around $400AUD, theyre based somehwere in south east asia.

I'm confused as to why you have to rewire the windows, headlights ect. Seems like if you use the 2g engine harness it would work right away besides the gauge cluster. Then you could get aftermarket gauges or try and splice the 2g gauge cluster in.

The 1st gen switches are different from the 2nd gen switches. I'm using a complete 2nd harness. I'm using 1st gen door harnesses, had to cut the connector going into door of the 2nd gen and splice in the first gen harness. The power mirror switches are in a totally different locations between 1st and 2nd gens. One is located on the master switch and the other on the center console. I have to cut connecters of 1st gen harness and splice them to the 2nd gen harness to get the headlights, tailights, parking lamps to turn on. The harzards and turn signals are the only thing I got to work so far besides the windows/locks. Headlights are giving me trouble though. I probably am going to make a custom cluster because the 1st gen speedo is cable driven.

When I started putting everything together for my swap, I didn't have a pan...later acquired the pan and hadn't gotten back to the project, and now that you say that, it should have lcicked when I got my pan...the sumps on the wrong side, just like a kia pan on an fe3...how bad do the interfere? less than an inch, or more? might be able to modify my crossmember when it comes time...

wonder if an KF, or K8 pan would make a difference?

but why are you using the complete 2g harness? Why not just the engine harness? Just seems like way less work. Maybe i'm missing some thing here...

The engine harness isn't a standalone harness. It connects to the main fuse box harness which connects to the dash harness which plugs into the in-car fuse box and the chassis harness plug into that. It all ties in together somehow. Plus I like having OBDII and Keyless Entry now.

Since my 89 has a manual rack. I'm am deleting P/S. I know that the water is driven off the same drive and don't want to run the grooved side of the belt on the tensioner. Do you think I could use a fan spacer to bring out the pulley, so it can be run on the alternator drive? I would need to get a belt one rib thinner.
