Default My engine swap, 93se/96ssei

Ever sence the first day I had my car, I wanted to get a supercharged engine for it, then the day came that my engine went "knock" then that was it. I knew then the time had come to find a engine. so I found a rote off 96 ssei and begain to swap the engines

Once I got into it I realised everything had to be changed so I desided to swap the interior and everything. here is a list of the things I had to change:

-Every wire in the car
-Steering rack because the 96 has a sensor
-Engine
-Tranny
-The hole interrior "except the rear seatbelts thay are different up top"
-Had to make mounts for the under seat IRS computer
-Had to make new holes for the engine harnes to pass through firewall
-Had to change almost every single thing in the engine compartment
-Had to change the exhaust
-I will add more stuff later

Here are some pics of the project, there is more but I dont have them uploaded yet
I have the engine in and ready to be hooked up and the interior and trunk are done

Wiring removed

Great job.

You could have gotten away with a few smaller changes to get the interior stuff etc working w/o having to replace the entire thing.....but congrats and well done are definately in order.

Here are some more pics: you can notice in the interior pics that the rear seatbelts and steering wheel are different colours, i got to die the seatbelts black, find a stearing wheel and finish painting the collum. once my viberation damanper comes from zzperfromance, I can finaly finish it up and get it running, I cant stand working on stuff without all the parts

The hole the Supercharged engine came from



Fue pics of the logos on my car



Pics of the interrior just needs some fue final parts put on and a big cleaning up\junk took off back seat. "note:glovebox door needs to be ajusted"





some pics of the engine in the car, and the tranny, brand new goodrinch transmision, witch I desided to paint before I installed it in my car.







You can see here where I had to drill 2 holes for the bolts and fill the other 2 with seam sealear



The ac compresser from the 93 made to fit the 96, you can see the little extender bracket I had to make up, the 93 bracket fit with a little modifacation, i had to chop off the parts that interfeared with the engine.




Just some pics of the HUD my dash and center console





Old Interior parts
