    i think it will be out of a 1997 onward's VTi hatch back engine will be easier to get than a coupe over here
    if i can i was going to try and get a front end chop or something

    brit coupe, I’m half way though having this swap done at the mo!

    D16Y7 drive shafts will not fit the B16 transmission - they are way to small so you will need drive shafts for the B16. Unfortunately the b16 drive shafts will not fit in your (they didn't mine) EJ6 hubs so you will need a pair of wheel hubs, or you can make custom drive shafts (I chose to get the hubs). I would defiantly recommend getting a whole car (or front half) that way you know you have all the parts.

    There are however differences between UK built and US built models as I found out. ECU in UK built EK4 I found to be a lot smaller - about the size of a 3.5" hard drive, and the wiring loom has different connectors (i got in a 1999 VTi P2T ECU and loom) so I had to send that back and get one for a 4 door.

    Apart from that its OK, I got Enjo mounts so I don't need to worry about sourcing mounts from all over the place, and a few other goodies!!

    Hope that helps and good luck with the swap!


    Tim

    Chears tim thanx for the help i was wondering about the drive shaft's, i rote into banzai magazine who put me onto Jackan aswell they wont £3000 to put one in my car i think i can do it for a lot less what do you think is it worth not getting my hand's dirty or in your opinion is this exspensive

    To be perfectly honest I wish I never started! I keep telling myself "it will be good when it's done...it will be good when it's done"

    Anyway, based on my experience, and my mate’s experience, you will have problems with the swap. Doesn't matter how much you research or plan there will be problems... and mine have been costly. I am having a local performance garage do the work, and they can sort out all the problems, but I budgeted £4,000 for the swap and some other performance parts and so far its costing £5,500 - Make sure you have a endless supply of cash!!!

    My garage is getting in parts, as they need them, so I would recommend a specialist like Jakan as they whuld have all the parts already and if they quote 3000 to get the job done, get that in writing, and if they add bits and bobs here and there you will have a leg to stand on.

    I have also heard good things of V-Spec performance (http://www.v-specperformance.co.uk/) as well. They are in Pontypridd near Cardiff so that might be a way to go for you but give them a call and see what price they can do.

    It all depends on your ability and confidence as to whether you diy or pay someone to do it. If you pay someone make sure they know what they are doing and find out if they have done it before. Don't let your's be the first someone has done like me.



    For those interested my swap includes:
    1999 B16A2 +transmission, axles, ecu, loom and all accessories etc..
    Full port and polish, flowed and milled with a lil bit shaved off (more compression)
    Cylinder recon (rehone?)
    Engine rebuilt with all new main and top end bearings
    New oil seals, piston rings, recond. valve train
    Mugen valve cover
    Mugen Strut brace
    Neuspeed lower sway bar
    Spoon CF wire cover
    Quaife ATB Diff
    Enjo Engine Mounts
    SFS Silicone Hose's
    5Zigen 4-2-1 Exhaust manifold
    Skunk2 Camber control arms and Toyo Proxies T1R ;)
