I hope to be one soon. After I sell the colt shell and keep the motor, turbo setup, and dsmlink, I want to pick up a cheap ($500 or less) 4G coupe, no preference on color. We should have a thread on what motor mounts to use for the 4g63 swap!
Mark I plan to actually start making these mounts too once I get my engine in my 4g. If you are lucky enough to find an "LS" 5 speed model they come with the F5M22 tranny and alot of people have good luck with them handling the power of the 4G63T engine. If this is the case you simply reuse the 3 existing mounts on the tranny case and just worry about the mount on the timing belt side.
If you try to go with an older 1g dsm turbo tranny then you will have to modify all of the roll stops and mounts as they don't have the mounting bosses on the tranny case for the mounts.
Ok so I went to the yard the other day and found a LS coupe. It did have the 3 mounts on the transmission, although it was an automatic. Would these mounts work in a sedan? Im also gonna guess that I need that F5M22 trans you are talking about. Correct me if im wrong, but isnt that the same transmission code as a 1G FWD DSM or was that the F5M21?
Lets try to compile some data on swapping these cars using (what I think should be the only way in most feasable situations) by using all OE parts.
Still dont own one but Im going to go into this possible project armed with enough knowledge to complete the conversion without any problems or unexpected issues. (Is that ever possible?
