looked around the forum for a z20leh engine conversion but cannot find a member who's done it. Think I read the ecu had to be changed (CAN), is this right?
On the CMS site is written that the conversion is a 1/1 but they do not write about the ecu.
If a complete engine (incl. turbo) with reasonable milage can be found it would be cheaper and less time consuming for a more serious power upgrade than keeping the z20let? For instance ±300 BHP.
Even tought of buying a complete car in the UK and try to sell the rest...
There are complete cars with high milage for 5000£ without collection costs
I will not change the gearbox, but how will this different engine affect the drivabililty, transmission, or is this a simple programming thing, Is it just the OPC/VXR that has a 6th gear?
Can we keep the same clutch, driveshaft, per se it is the same block? Will a differential be a must or does this depend on driving skills and some luck. Buying and mounting a Quaife is not cheap
Has anyone done this swap? If yes is there a good script of it?
A lot of questions? Yes, for sure. I am pleased with this car, how it drives and how it looks. But the idea of a stock looking engine and the high power it produces is top
and nobody has to know about it. The reason why we would also do this is the challenge, we have the room and equipment, we could have a few good laughs and even maybe even good thrills.
I'm not thinking about profit or losing money when (if) selling this little Pitbull
Budget : lets talk ± 5K nett. all parts included, I have now a decat and 200cell full Milltek (63mm), can it be kept as is in this build?
Thank You very much for input
PS : For the funny guys among us and considering the circumstances, a PSA engine is not an option
