Engine Swap

Hey I was wondering if anyone could tell me all the work (and parts that would need to be swapped) if I put in either a sr20det (six speed) or an rb26dett

neither of those swaps are very common...a RB25/20 is a lot more common...and a 5 speed SR20DET out of the PS13 or S14 is A LOT more common...both the RB26DETT and the 6 speed SR20DET are pretty complicated because of a very different electrical setup...among@other things....like different sonsors and stuff...and the RB26 is pretty complicated because of the twin turbo setup and needing to swap out the tranny to a RWD one like the RB20...unless you really want a 6 speed, a SR20 from a S13 or S14 would be a lot easier...

The rb26 is not a very common swap and neither is the 6 speed black topmotor for a 99-2000 s15. You said it was the most common swap, but a sr20det, and rb comes in many flavors, the ones he meantined being the least swaped.

I will try and have beter input on the "supject>" next time.

Good luck with that...lots of work, pain, and tears. Plus money lol...I suggest If you REALLY wand an RB26, use the RB25 tranny instead. If not, just go RB25

O and pwned again!!!!!
