Gen 3 swap needs help

Postby MixMaster » Sun Aug 25, 2013 2:40 am

My '93 has been away from me for over 2 years. I finally just brought it home and am preparing to send it to ATS to finish everything I can't do on my own. It's a sad dusty bunny with a mess for an engine bay. If I would've known it would be a couple of years, I may have gone for the 4th gen instead. the motor is in though.

I'm mysteriously missing a lot of parts though (no clue what happened) so looking for feedback and if you have any of the parts.

92-93 fuse box - They found my harness at the shop with the fuse box. Back on track. I'll more than likely send this off to be done by Tweak or mr220v (doug) if ATS can't handle it. Looking for guidance here.

Gen 3 Map Sensor - looks like the gen 4 caldina sensor works also just mounts differently. Anyone have any pics of of how they mounted a gen 4 if they used one. Looks like either part works, neither mount easily. the brackets I used when only running gen 3 electronics is also gone.

Gen 3 ECU - I'm looking for another 3rd Gen MR2 ecu since I'm running a FMIC and don't want to mess with the water level sensor and w2a sensor issues.

Radiator - Found my stock st185 radiator. Any issues with the ST205 motor lining up with the st185 radiator? What kind of fan setup are you guys using?

Exhaust - This is a disaster. My 3" full exhaust was cutoff. I only have my downpipe at this point.
Is the Chinese ebay $400 job worth it? I'd still need a midpipe. I'm considering finding a good stock exhaust and and doing a cutout after the dp. So that at WOT it's a straight dump but otherwise is on stock exhaust.

Getting the AC going on the 3rd gen swap - ATS says they can do it. The car will be there soon and I'll report back. Hopefully, they can pull it off. I know several of you are also waiting for a solution to this issue. We'll see.......

Thanks and glad to be back, not sure who all is still around but looking to get back in the scene and my car back on the road soon.

If you just want it taken care of, ATS turns swaps around pretty fast. I work with them a good bit. A/C shouldn't be an issue.

Doug, I'm trying to get as much together as possible before sending to them.
Can you handle the harness and make sure the AC works?

Price?
