Back from Iraq time for swap

this is the plan. 12.5:1 compression pistons in k20a with 92mm stroke and lightweight Pro rods from Brian Crower, stock bore (86mm), stage 2 n/a Brian Crower camshafts with steel dual springs/retainers, Brian Crower valve seats/guides/keepers, Competition Clutch stage 2 carbon/kevlar clutch and light flywheel, Strup 4-1 header, Megan Racing downpipe and ASP 2.5 inch piping, TWM 52mm ITB’s, Moshimoto fan and Koyo Radiator, k20tuned Electric Water Pump block off conversion, Si Electric power steering conversion, Hybrid Racing thermostat/heater hose kit/radiator hose insert, Buddy Club cam gears, D series Alterstart HO alternator, Hybrid Racing chain tensioner/clutch cables/throttle cable/wire harness, ARP headstuds, Samco hoses/belts, Hasport mounts, karcepts tensioner.

well the first part is done. I put in eps from an ep3. swapped the k20a for the old d17a2 and now just got to fix the idle and finish the exhaust thanks to advancedstreetperformance.com for the cat back piping.







after this i'm going to dyno for a baseline then i'm building the final power haha.

Re: Back from Iraq time for swap

thanks. it's 03 PT Cruiser electric blue. its got 5 coats of clear with 2 base under that is 3 primer. alot of primer due to sanding and fixing the stupid lines left from the sand blasting. started the headlight harness tuck and fuse box relocation today. got an idea of how to start it. put in sunroof, eps and subframe yesterday.

Re: Back from Iraq time for swap

You can tell that it has five coats of clear, the paint has so much depth.

Where are you relocating the fuse box to?

Re: Back from Iraq time for swap

the fuse box is going in the wiper cowl passenger side. where the cabin filter inlet is supposed to be. i pulled the a/c, blower and heater out already. the headlight wires go through the sunroof outlet behind the fender. did the passenger side today. when i finish the driver i will post pics.

I would have gone with the stock Corolla S blue, but hey, whatever floats your boat
