I just finished the same conversion. Are you using the 4wd gearbox or a 2wd one? I used a 2wd and had to get axles ( the left side is the hardest to locate ). I used all the gtir shocks springs and brakes on my B13 also. Any info. you need just let me know.
hey, i am in the middle of doing this swap right now heres a link to a g20 forum which as u know is basically a b13 and it helped me with every problem i found and showed me a few i would run into . if u read the whole thing it gives u explanations on which wires to splice and some custom brackets on accelerator cable and i think axle support
theres a few links within this link that show u one persons whole swap with pictures step by step and thers a diagram that really doesnt help much but jgy customs has a sweet lil diagram for vacuum lines that run behind the intake manifold which im guessing are normally disconnected
Ok i'm currently putting a GTIR into my SE-R (B14). Unless your setting up your car for AWD and are going to retunnel your exhaust piping tunnel to make room for the drive shaft and your exhaust to be there. The best tranny to go with is a 2000 G20 (p11) set up and you can go to car-parts.com to locate a tranny anywhere in the U.S. Now you will need a wiring harness from a 95-97 SE-R and some of it will have to be re-wired to make work. you will also need a upgrade MAF Sensor, TPS Sensor, Clutch, Flywheel, Fuel Pump, Boost Gauge, a FMIC because unless your cutting your hood with a scoop the TMIC is useless. Here are some write ups that might help you. I hope that this info helps you in your swap. Good luck.
If i'm not mistaken if you use the Stock GTIR ECU and Wiring harness you'll have rewire everything under the dash which wont be fun. But might be wrong because you are a OBD I. I honestly recommend, that you use a SR20 (SE-R harness) and get the ecu out of the same car before you start install send your ECU to Jim Wolf Technology because you will need it reflashed. Which its like $600 to get done, now if you want to save 100 dollars send it to JGY and they can get it done for $500. The flash will help the engine and computer work with the car. If you follow those write ups i gave you, you should be fine. this is my first swap ever i'm doing so its fairly invovled i've done as much homework as possible to get this done i'm just waiting on the clutch than i start assembling.
im working on a 3g budget...so im trying to use as much of the gti-r stuff from the front clip as possible...im getting the front clip for 2250 shipped..that leaves me with 750 to buy other stuff i need and pay someone to install(wont be more than 300)...so yeah...if we gotta wire then we gotta wire...like what obstacles will i run into...im pretty sure the gti-r gauge cluster will work...it looks the same.
pretty positive that u can just use the gtir ecu as long as u get a stock se-r wire harness because u use most of it except for the tps plug and injector plugs and maybe 2 more things have to be spliced on. anyhow a tranny btw can be picked up at a junk yard or something im sure theres one sittin in sonmeones yard near ya, try the classifieds also probebly run ya around 4-500
i, too, have completed the gti-r swap into my 93 se-r. i used the gti-r ecu and harness for the swap. the only wiring switches was the alternator, a/c compressor, and i think the fuel pump relay- i'm not sure, my brother took care of the wiring. if you use the gti-r wiring, you don't have to locate all those sensors and stuff. it's fairly straight forward swap, but the 1.6 to 2.0T is a little more involved. i've got some good wiring diagrams if anybody needs a copy email me.:banana:
wassup buddy, i'm going to get them copied tomorrow and will send them out after that. i hope they help you as much as they did for me. i'll also take some pics of where we did some wiring confuctions so it'll give you a heads up. another wise investment for you, a 4 point harness
