Good luck on this Brandon.
I had a nice talk with the Sr20 swap guru Mike Spreadburry. He said that
the SR20DET was too much power for the roadster...but I am sure that's
probably what you are going for. I think that if my engine is kaput I will
try to buy a s14 clip from Mike and do that swap. The s14 makes 165hp verses
the 150 of the s13 and I think that's a nice compromise over going the much
more expensive route of the SR20DET.
Mike was also talking about making some kind of kit up with engine mounts
and frame cutting diagrams and what not. Mike's sometimes on this list
maybe he will get in touch with you. It would definitely be worth your
while to pick his brain.
$Hey there everybody. Well here's the story.I purchased my roadster about 3
$months ago, and come to find out the motor had really low compression on
$4 cyl's.especially number 2. After debating the issue for some time, I
$finally came to the conclusion that it would be in my best interests to do
$the SR20DET swap instead of rebuilding the U20. I actually have quite a
$of experience with the SR20 motor. I am the previous owner of a front
$drive SR20DET which made 300 horsepower everyday on crappy California 91
$octane. The DET motor is no stranger around this household. 3 out of the
$cars in the driveway have an SR20. Anyways.I really missed the power and
$response from the turbo SR. I had always wished that It was RWD..now that
$time has come. And yes..the turbo in that picture is the turbo that will
$on the car. The motor is being built up as we speak. I will not stop
$I see at least 400hp on the dyno. Although we all know that will be
$completely impractical for street use. It will still be fun to say my 1900
$pound car has 400 horsepower!!! Good times. The new SR20DET was in mint
$condition, and I can't wait to start fitting it in the car. If ALL goes
$well, the project will be done within a month. Check out the pictures, and
$any input or suggestions are more than welcome. As the car gets updated,
$will all of you. This should be an interesting month.
