WHatsup everyone

Ok im new to the forum but i have a big question to ask.
Ok so ive had my 93 se-r for about a year now and absolutely love it but I want more. I want to swap in a sr20det in. Im pretty dure it will work. Im lucky enough to have an uncle who is willing to do all the labor for free so that's pretty cool and should save me alot of dough. This swap is pretty easy right? I guess that's the wrong question, how hard is the swap? How long would it take me(17 not that much engine swap knowledge) and my uncle (47 knows how to to pretty much everything with cars) to complete? How much should everything cost? And finnally the good stuff, what should i expect for 0-60 and quater mile times? any help on these questions would be greatly appreciated.

Peace

The swap is very straightforward and not that difficult since you alreade had an sr20 in there. There are a couple electric adapters that change over but not much else. i helped my buddy with one (well I watched) and it was done in like 3 weekends. It runs great. Look for DET motors at www.jgycustoms.com jason there is a great guy and very willing to help.

JGY Customs has custom made downpipes for the DET that work great. You can get them at a variety of places all found at se-r.net. Search the email list archives there for det downpipes. as far as swapping the GA16 auto, i think JWT can use the GA16 ecu and harness with some modifications, or get a se-r ecu from www.car-parts.com for around 70-100 and have JWT program it for 500 and then get a wiring harness from jgy customs.

thats f*cking awsome, a 13.1 in the 1/4, that will smoke, not just beat, all the hondas that im racing now up here in New Hampshire. Shit, now all i need is the cash, yeah summer jobs. Anyone have a guess what 0-60 times would be. Man am I going to have the sleeper, noone belives my car is fast as it is, then they get their asses handed to them. Ahhh such satisfaction

Traction is definitely key. Anyway, with my BB DET I had a 2.5" downpipe and then a full 3" exhaust system from the downpipe back, including a glasspack midpipe, cat and muffler. All 3". Also, I had a FMIC. My car made 194 HP at the wheels with 188 lb-ft of torque. Boost came on at about 2500 RPM. This was all at 6.5 psi.

Going from the 2.5" downpipe to a 3" exhaust, won't that cause some kind of exhaust issue like not enough velocity to get through the pipe? Wouldn't it be better to run like a 2.5"? What kind of cat and muffler are you using?

that exhaust is what most people do, it doesn't cause any problems, it goes into the "cat" and then out into a 3" system, not bad at all.

with a turbo car your really dont care about velocity as much as you would with a n/a car. With a turbo car you want the least amount of back pressure possible for faser spool of the turbo. But you are kinda right with low bost 2.5" exhaust will yeild better results. But if you plan on going higher boost your better off getting a 3" so you dont have to replace it later on.

Originally we were going to do a 3" downpipe but we couldn't get it to fit. The cat and muffer... I don't really remember what they were. it doesn't matter too much as long as they're straight-through designs.
