Here's what I don't get, your gonna do far more work and invest more time and money than any of the GT guys for what will largly be a stock GT. Sure you have some boltons but if this were my swap I'd save my $ and all at once swap a fully build custom turbo with built block. Just my .02.

I know what you're saying Chaos, but I'm not looking to build a 600+ hp monster, I will be happy with a bolt on beast mated with a stage 1 SDS making ~350hp. I got nothing but time, if I'm feeling froggy in the later days, I'll slowly build it up for more hp.

Transmission arrived today, and its a heavy sonabitch, weighed in at 141lbs dry weight. I didn't weigh my gs 5spd, but had to been closer to 75lbs. First look of the tranny looks good, no obvious flaws. I was able to hand spin the spline in every gear and it was silky smooth.... as it should be with only 13k miles on it.

Here are your pics...

Driver side

Bell Housing/Passenger side

This side faces the hood, where to transaxle mount goes


More parts to order Friday....

The more I think about this the more I see why GS guys want to do it. Though I do think it is smarter just to sell the GS and get a GT, if that isn't an option then doing a swap to an engine with 100more horses and gobs more tq is sure going to feel nice over the GS.

I got my GS cheap at $10k a year ago, and it would make sense to trade it in for a GT if I didn't already have money into it. Besides I've saved very little of the stock stuff -I'd actually loose money on trade if I went that route. I'm hoping to keep total cost around $3500 for the v6 swap, plus you need to factor in selling my perfectly good 4g69 which easily go for $1200 or more as a complete set. I don't know if anyone knows this, but the 4g69 is a sought after motor for Mitsubishi Mirage owners. If you youtube Mirage & 4g69 you will find plenty of drag vids... here's an example of a N/A running 13's 1/4 miles.

Yeah the 69 is sought after by a lot of people. Check out project zero G sometime its a sight about all the 4g6x sirrus series engine's and how they can be frankenstiened. A lot of the mirage guys like to destroke it.

Small update.... the ECU made it earlier in the week as promised by the seller. The kid on eBay douched out with the stock flywheel, had to open a dispute to get my money back after he did nothing after two weeks, the jerk then relisted it on ebay for twice as much from what I won it at. To top it off, the salvage yard I wanted to get the 6spd shifter assembly also couldn't pull through... so still prospecting parts before going back to the dealership to buy new... I'm trying to hold out as long as I can...

oh the joys...

Today was a good day! Found an oem flywheel for $75 delivered, which is about half of what I have been seeing them go for. I'm coming down to the last few items I'll be needing but unfortunately, they're all the high priced items.

At this point, I'm thinking about taking advantage of doing internal upgrades while the motor is out of the car. So I may splurge for pistons and rods. Also, a little hesitant on OBX headers and the KYB struts, so I may also save for Ripps LTH and D2 coilovers.... I got nothing but time, so I might has well do it right

I'm sure I will, I like both flavor eclipse. Although the motors are completely different, you'd be surprised at how much they are a like in many ways

Be patient with the parts, pretty much every day a GT bites the dust somewhere in the US.

Yes sir, and I am very anxious to jump on the opportunity. I need the shifter assembly and cables which are $400 from the dealer. This will be the last piece I buy for sure, I'm willing to pay $200 for it if anyone knows of any wrecked GT's

Yep still working on it..... going to lay down the order for the flywheel and clutch from one of the vendors on here next Friday. Had to put some money into my daily driver so it set me back a little. Will keep you guys updated!

OH HAPPY DAY!!!! Found the 6spd manual shifter assembly at a junk yard for $80 delivered. New was $200+..... hopefully it comes with the cables... we'll see.

Original post updated for cost and part numbers...

Here's a pic of the donor car

To get the motor in, all I need is the clutch kit and headers. Once its in, then the real fun starts, I'll need everything on my first post that isn't X'd off... and prolly a bunch of little stuff that will come up along the way. Main goal from there is to get the engine to turn over and run. Then just upgrades to suspension and brakes..... I'm a little behind on cash from my accident I had with it.

are you going to wait to rebuild it fully and than throw it in, or just going to throw it in and work on it from there?
