I know its been done and I'm considering doing it, but I need a list of things to buy.

What mods will I be doing.

Lil help here?

Thanks
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

List of stuff:

Chiltons/Haynes for Wiring Diagram Reference

1. EJ22
2. EJ22 exhaust header
3. Mudrat's Adapter Plate
4. Wiring Harness (Kennedy engineering 20$ wiring harness?) complete car wiring harness, yes the whole thing, preferably one from a manual trans. car
intake tubing for EJ22, with MAF sensor
5. EA82 flywheel redriled for EJ22 crankshaft bolt pattern
6. XT6 clutch components(pres. plate, clutch disc)
7. MPFI fuel pump of some kind, inline pump, not in-tank pump, wire it to ignition


Installation:

Modified Radiator?
Redrilling Flywheel? Flywheel bolt pattern differences?

the radiator hoses are going to be "fun" and you should get a 12'' long 1.25'' dia. flexible radiator hose for the top, and a 18'' long 1.25'' dia. radiator hose for the bottom, longer so it wont kink and restrict coolant flow.

BTW, I would like to keep my EA82 5 spd D/R unless something like 4.11:1 is available

ALSO, if I were to do the swap, is the EJ22 wiring harness compatable with the EJ25 motor?

first off, consider at least a $600-$800 budget in mind, including motor of course. i got my EJ22 for $400. ill list some of the things you will need that i can remember of-hand.


EJ22, duh
make your own or buy mudrat79's adapter kit, its the "adapter plate"
EA82 flywheel redriled for EJ22 crankshaft bolt pattern
XT6 clutch components(pres. plate, clutch disc)
EJ22 exhaust header
complete car wiring harness, yes the whole thing, preferably one from a manual trans. car
intake tubing for EJ22, with MAF sensor
MPFI fuel pump of some kind, inline pump, not in-tank pump, wire it to ignition
do a search for EJ22 swap, you'll find my threads and barracuda's, austin's, noah's, as well as many others that have done this converison.
one thing i cant stress enough is YOU CAN DO THE WIRING, JUST TAKE YOUR TIME AND BE THOUROUGH, AND GET A WIRING DIAGRAM FORM CHILTONS OR ONLINE SOMEPLACE.
the radiator hoses are going to be "fun" and you should get a 12'' long 1.25'' dia. flexible radiator hose for the top, and a 18'' long 1.25'' dia. radiator hose for the bottom, longer so it wont kink and restrict coolant flow.
order kennedy engineering's $20 wiring diagram, it will be worth it trust me.
thats about all i can thin of right now.

There is plenty of info out there already, but a lot of it is stuff that you will need to find out for yourself. Good luck, i have a EJ22 GL 1600 and i'm gonna try my first conversion of my own in July, just don't be supprized if no one has the answers you are looking for.

Manuals for both the engine donor vehicle and receiving car are mandatory, unless you can tell by the color of the wire where it goes. It is a completey do-able swap, but its not easy or straighforward either.
