If you have the money and time to invest in Jason'* idea, you have no business messing with a Series1. Just buy a GXP.

A full drivetrain swap is the only safe way to do this. The rest of the drivetrain needs to be able to handle the power.

Nobody has ever succesfully even ATTEMPTED this. Until that'* done, and a long-term test is complete, forget it.

There are well over 100 individual parts that differ between the L27 and L67, and they differ for a reason.

Do you have a complete working motor? Then it'd be fairly easy, just get that zzp wiring kit, and the PCM setup i mentioned with a custom rom. You'll have a higher Gear Ratio then any SSEi, and you'll be lighter (if you're in an SE)

I don't wan't argue about this, but there'* no reason this isn't possible. No one'* attempted it because no one with this engine has thought it out before. They've all given up, or just bought a different car. Once you get it, you'd have a lighter car, and a better geared car then any SSEi.

GXP? C'mon, they pull a what, 15.5? I'm within .49 of that in the humble L27. Bigger/newer isn't always better.

it'* a 94 SE.

I have access to any model and year. I am connected through a string of salvage yards, and get the best prices.

after doing some research, I "feel" it owuld be better to swap out everything on the front end. Motor, tranny, and suspension. Along with allt he needed electronics.

I am hard on my cars. Fast cars are meant to be driven fast. And slow cars were meant to be made fast to be driven hard. I just can't help it.
