  • my beat up 91 BRG swap project

    ok so I guess I will finally get around to start this. Been storing parts for about a year now...

    So the little 1.6 in my car is finally starting to die so I am swaping to a 1.8.

    Block:

    99-00 short block (Thanks to Ben for hooking me up back when he was at MazMart




    94-97 head (Thanks to Stephen)



    a box of parts



    So I still missing a few parts and plan to grab them in the next few weeks. I am planning for a swap either over the weekend of the 31st or 7th.





    you know I think I am forgetting something










































































    oh yea.

          not 100% sure. I got it from Ben today, it is small. I think it is the size of a 2554 only a journal version. The last person made just short of 200whp on it so it will be a great starting point.

            If you do that, I won't be able to come help. And I owe you from when you helped me pull my engine. And an advance IOU for helping me during the reinstall. lol

            Hmmm... that means you can upgrade the fuel pump and run stock 94-97 injectors for 7-9 psi. :)

              yepo yepo. Currently it going in with a FMU and going to run low boost, looking at 5psi to start with but the end goal for this turbo is 12 psi.

                  Just out of curiosity, what does the car look like? :p

                  I think I saw a picture of it way back when in the intro thread or something but can't remember. Black front half and the rest is BRG?

                    I'll help out with the turbo install if needed. I'd like to see one assembled.

                      correct. The plans are to get the car fix and then run a kinda panda look, with a green car but have a black hood, truck, top and finish panel.
