  • 99 engine in a 95

    how difficult is it to swap the 95 for a 99. i know the 95 is obd 1 and the 99 is obd2. i helped a friend put a first gen engine in a second gen car and it worked, but the engine was messed up and it never ran right. low compression i think, nothing to do with sensors or the obd. i found a lower mileage engine on ebay and i was wondering if it would work or not.

    youd have to use the 95 injectors and fuel rail. You'd also have to swap to the 95 TB. Exhaust you would have to rig something to fit the 99 manifold and downpipe to the rest of the exhaust, i think the flange behind the cat is rotated differently.

    Plus you need to drill and tap a spot in the head for the coolant temp gauge sensor

    id go ahead and swap all the other sensors while you are at it cause im sure the connectors on some are a little different

    Also gonna need new brackets for the AC compressor and the PS pump as well I think

    and dont forget you'll still need a 95 clutch, NOT a 99

    hope that helps some

        *sigh*

        the debate continues.

        I thought they changed the clutch for 00-02, as well...made it travel less, but the guys at PR all swore it'll work fine. Tristan and Mike have run 91-99 clutches in 00+ cars without a problem, so it's probably not an issue.

        OH, duhrrr...they changed the clutch in 00, anyways. 99 and 95 are the same.

          New clutch design needs new master/slave design. Old needs old. Both old and new versions have the same amount of room in the bell housing, just 2 different designs.

            95 may be the best year, but it isnt easy finding a lower milage engine. i dont have the time to rebuild mine. i need something. i'm tired of putting oil in this bitch. putting 5 to 6 quarts of oil in your car every week gets old, and expencive.

              HOLy SHIT! that's alot of oil. Umm, You will have get creative on intalling the 95 fuel rail, and uyou will need to drill a hole in the head and tap it for 1/8 NPT so that you can install the second CTS for the 95. All other sensors, just swap them off the 95 and put them on the 99.

                yea, brain fart, 00-02 clutch is the same. 91-99 is the same

                as far as the old 91-99 clutch will work with a 00+ slave .......... Yea it might, but the clutch won't fully disengage. The old slave cylinder has like 40-50% MORE throw. so if you use that clutch, you should use that slave.


                I actually had a first style clutch in my car with the new slave when I bought it. It ran fine but if I tried to shift into 2nd at like 6500 at WOT, it would grind real bad ..... why? because the input shaft was still spinning with the flywheel [img]{SMILIES_PATH}/smile.gif[/img]

                  So how do you put an ACT clutch in an 00-02?

                  Throw in a 91-99 slave with it?

                      exactly. If you don't have ABS its as easy as swapping the slave out. If you do have ABS, like me haha, then you have to move the ABS module, not too hard, but not too fun either.
