So instead of Doin' an OverHaul...
...I did a Crazy Engine Swap!
I Obtained another T8D engine but Third Generation (From the late '03 Kia Spectra, my Wife's Sephia had a second Gen T8D engine)
I Only Purchased the Block along with the Head (Long Block) Assembled as it came from Factory, in other Words: my Wallet wasn't enough big to purchase the Complete engine from the Junk Yard, so the people at the Junk Yard did Taken off some Parts from the Engine.
Parts Removed in order to Lower the Price:
- Intake Manifold complete.
- Exhaust manifold Complete
- Front main Pulley
- Engine Mounts, except the one in front of the Timin' Belt Cover. (The old one was Damaged)
- All the E.F.i. Stuff, including ignition Coils, etc
My Wife's Sephia still Ran with its original engine (Blowin' a Cloud of Smoke) and I Went to Purchase the New engine Driving it.
The New (to me) engine was Pretty Clean, came from a Spectra with 67,000 Miles; the car was in a Huge rear Crash and the engine was inmaculate, even its oil was Clear.
Since it came without intake nor exhaust manifolds, Flywheel, etc... I wanted to Use the ones from the old engine on the New; that way I will be Able to Run the New Engine with the EFi and OBD-II Computer from the Old one... and the Swap becomes Cheaper!
Then, someone at the Kia Forums told me that it Won't Work at all due to the Different Design...
