Justy ej22 engine swap

Recommended Posts

Will an ej22 out of a 91 legacy fit into a 91 justy? Will it just drop in and bolt up to the justy transmission?  How much of the electronics will have to be changed Ecuador, control modules and such?

No

Justy uses an inline engine, transversely-mounted. About as different as it's possible to be and still be a 4-cylinder.

Not even close.

Justy uses 3 cyl, transverse mounted.  EJ22 is longitude mounted.

MAYBE with lots of fab, EJ22 and a matching trans could be hooked up to Justy axles.

Ok that’s more work than I want to do. Too bad it would have been cool. 

 

Thanks

certainly far from plug and play but, maybe some other small xverse engine could make a fun project? smart car, or honda Fit or motorcycle engine.....?

 

any 3 cyl JDM engines?

Yea, with some mounts and axles (and wiring, and plumbing...all the normal swap stuff), a person could put almost any transverse FWD drivetrain in one. Wouldn't even be terribly hard to keep it AWD (custom driveshaft, finding a rear diff in the right ratio).

 

People put VTEC Honda engines in old Minis fairly regularly....
