So far the only upgrades I’ve planned for is a CAI and an exhaust. What I’ve considered is the 2-piece pulley set, cams, and headers. Others have suggested an ECU upgrade as well.

I’ve got 55,000 on my ’99 G20 and as a thought, when I get to 150,000 (gives me plenty of time to save up for it) about doing the engine swap to the DET. So far, I’ve had no problems with the engine. I keep up with regular maintenance check ups and all.

My question is, would it be more beneficial if I keep the engine, put in an ECU and turbo, or do the engine swap?

Hey Sexxy: good to see you here...

I guess it depends on how much time it will take you to get to 150K Many options...DET, VE, or Turbo your DE...all are good. One advantage of getting another engine (DET or VE) is that you can have some other work done to it while it is out of the car. Install Pulleys, Cams, etc....plus its almost plug and play 200ish hp. With kitting your DE there is a lot of work envolved...Just ask Boogie...instead of just an engine swap.

I guess it all revolves around how much work you want to do/get done, what type of resources you have and how fast you want to get it done....Just my two cents anyway....

Hey Cutey;)

My advice, prolly do a BB DET swap. The US guys/girls seem to have better options than us Brits, as we dont have access to this particular engine, which is why ive had to go the long way round and turbo my DE. The other option i had considered was to drop in a GTiR DET but its real hard to find a good engine even over here, as most have been neglected/abused.

So if you want serious power, i suggest, save up the money otherwise spent on the exhaust, cam, CAI etc, and get a DET inside. Just take a look at Lukes old car. Its a beauty.

Now you've both got me all bent outta shape! :confused: You mean to tell me there is more than one engine option? Oh I'm in trouble now.



Very well then, is there anyone who could tell me:

1. What the difference is between the engines
2. Is there one more reliable then other
3. Which one more readily availble here in the States

Oh and I wouldn't mind some pricing numbers (just the engine) too.

I highly sugest just adding a T25 bluebird setup to your stock engine. It would be cheaper then the swap and has many benifits.
And what is that all about?????

what p11 gt was saying was that there are a few engines available to swap into the g20 the ones available are already turboed and come from japan u can get one for about 1500 these turbo one stock push about 200 to 225 hp and u can always upgrade that turbo on them and get more hp

those other engines available are other variations of our u.s.a. sr20de engine so same engine almost with a turbo added on to it

and what g20racer was saying to do was unstead of swapping the whole engine just put a t25 wich is a size of a turbo onn your current engine and u will have close to the same hp of that swapped engine


good luck- i understand this post was a while ago but good luck in the future
