Awe... Non-GLH.... but wait... it doesn't mean it's not a Non-GLHS ;) anything done to your Omni? I always thought they were a pretty cool car... just wish they held up a little better over time.

Welcome!

You'll find some of us lurking around here most of the day when we're at work, we're C-Tech junkies. I'm still pretty new I probably can't lay claim to that based on my post count, but total hours spent being active in this forum...


Well 8 hours a day times like 5 weeks...that's a lot lol.

I've learned more about my car in this forum than I have in my lifetime, and that's mainly because I'm fairly new to the car world. So, don't expect me to be answering any technical questions unless I do happen to know or I've been there done that :).

I have a friend who is obsessed with Omnis, his first car in High School was one. He later blew it up racing against my 240SX (I know, I was young and stupid. Clear, dry day, in the country, long visibility, no traffic, no faster than 90). We then started looking for other Omnis and he almost won an Omni Limosuine off eBay... That would have been sweet.

Why not the 1mz? Do you have a good deal on a 3vz clip already or prefer it for another reason?

And welcome :)

I would have bought the omni if this was 2 weeks earlier, if it was in good shape... :(

As for the swap... any particular reason you picked the 3vz out of all the stuff you can fit in one?

I wish it was a GLHS but it's not, I got the car to do a GLH or GLHS swap. and I could not find 5-speed omni. so omni is not 5 speed and it's 1988 the gay'st yr for omni.. :brick: but I made the junkyard turbo kit for 80$. stock 14b turbo wildder and a lot of free stuff it's set for about 4 psi. I'm sorry I can't spell good at all. :(

I'm wondering about that too...I had a bad experience with a 3vz. It blew up at 88,000 miles. Plus the 1mzfe has a TRD bolt-on supercharger option.

I plan to put nitrous on it a 75 shot but one thing at a time I need to get the car for now then swap it.

Hm, I don't think 1mz's are interference, the heads are probably better. I'm sure you can pick up a 3vz cheaper, dunno that there would be much else that's better about it, but that's your choice, it'd be cool either way.

Welcome.

I just looked up what an Omni was, and they look like a volkswagen rabbit IMO.

All cars in that class and time period looked like a Rabbit.

LOL....indeed :) I believe, sometime back around then (can't remember the year, but was '80's, for sure), the city of Philadelphia PA was using some Omnis as police vehicles, iirc (obviously not high speed pursuit vehicles, but were probably good for scooting around the city streets, I suppose ;) ) Yeah, I think the Rabbit was rather the "standard" for econoboxes back then :)


Oh, and, yeah - welcome....this is a great Celi site (especially, it seems, for us 5th gen'ers...)

Welcome

Interesting choice on the engine.
What do you plan to do with it?

The 1MZ is pretty stout too.
Lighter, so less weight on the front of the car, and it has forged crank/rods instead of cast.

:shrug:

Your project, good luck with whatever you do to it. :)
