    How come you want to swap to a 6 bolt? 1g 7 bolts are solid. I put one in my 95 talon. Couldn't be happier.

    I think i read somewhere that the 1g 6 and 7 bolts are the same except for the number of bolts on the flywheel im not 100% on that though.

    Only other differences I've heard of besides flywheel and internals is the oil pan. If you're swapping the whole motors they're completely interchangeable from everything I've read and seen.

    Are you sure you need the clutch? You should be able to use the clutch you have. I have used a clutch from a 2g GST on my 1g 6 bolt and AWD trans.

    the motors trashed. Id keep a 7 bolt but I ran across a good deal on unused manleys turbo tuffs and h beams for a six bolt plus there a little better on cw I hear. I really dont know what motors in there other than a seven bolt the motors been out before to paint the engine bay and the blocks been painted this is my first dsm so idk what seven bolt it is.

    As long as your using a 91 or early 92 6 bolt, nothing else. If you using a pre 91 you'll want to swap over most of the sensors, throttle body, fuel rail, coil pack, power transistor, etc from the later 92 7 bolt.

    What Steve said, and all you'll need is the appropriate flywheel.

    All 92s should be 6 bolt. The split happened in april which is likely when they started manufacturing the 93 model year that would've hit dealers in early fall. Did you check and see what you have? The basic longblock swaps right over. If you are indeed swapping 7 for 6 you'll need a flywheel. Only if you have a 90 longblock then you would need to mess with the oil cooler also.

    No, 1992.5 Was when they switched to 7 Bolts, I owned one which is how I know.

    Only difference I see is just the Flywheel.

    Reuse the front and rear engine roll stop brackets that are in the car now to eliminate any potential mounting issues with the new engine.

    And where in this thread has the OP stated that his new engine is from another AWD 5-spd? ;)

    My suggestion is only to help avoid guesswork: what came out will fit back in.

    Not all 1gs have 6bolts, and the swap requires a good bit of know how, just follow the link on road race engineering and everything works fine. That's what i followed when i did my swap. But I highly recommend you buy their harness, its only 50$ with shipping and its so much better than trying to rewire, make your own, or buy a knockoff.

    You didn't read the thread at all, did you? This is a 1G engine into another 1G, something that is pretty straightforward as pointed out in several posts above.

    Nothing on RRE's website will help with this swap. Buying that harness would be a complete waste of money because you wouldn't have a need for it here.

    Move along.
