JDM B18C swap questions.
So, I have 2000 USDM GSR. The B18C1 in my car is burning a ton of oil and Im planning on taking it out and rebuilding it for boost (or maybe an NA stroker - still thinking on that one).
In the meantime, Id like to keep driving my car. So, I just ordered a 97 JDM sir-g B18c from Hmotorsonline.
Im ordering parts now in preparation to do the swap and Im searching for some advice about how to prep the motor before it goes into the car.
Here is a list of the stuff I plan on replacing before the motor goes into the car:
1) I plan on using my USDM ECU, so I was going to replace the oil pump on the JDM motor with an oem USDM pump so as to avert the issue arising from the absence of a CKF sensor on the JDM motor.
2) oil plan gasket
3) timing belt, tensioner, and water pump
4) clutch (new exedy stage 1 + resurfaced flywheel from the usdm motor)
5) valve cover gasket
Can anyone else think of anything else that I probably ought to do to the JDM engine before it goes into the engine bay?
