I've heard of this swap before, but never actually seen it done. How hard was it? What modifications needed to be done to make it work? Is the handling significantly affected by the extra weight in the front? But more importantly, how fast does the bugger go?

Good work :tup:

Damn, :D The speed question is the one that I dont have the answer to. I have been having some electrical problems, so the car has not been run. I believe that I have them sorted o8ut though, so I am hoping to make it to the track at least once before the white stuff falls. It should go like stink though, a KLZE in a car that weighs 2150lbs. :)

Anyways, the swap was not all that difficult, although I did enlist the help of some friends as I was very rushed for time.

I hope to be boosting by late next year, if finances allow for it :)

What sort of electrical problems are you having ? I have a lot of info on the V6.. do you want the wiring diagrams and PCM pin outs?..

That would be great, I would forever be in your debt :)

Are the PCM pinouts the same on the USDM computer as they are on the Jspec computer??

I am using an MX3 wiring harness as well as JE50 VAF, with the J-spec ECU.
