I just wanted to share the before and after pics of my swap project. Details will come later on once it is complete and I'm driving it around, but I am happy with the results so far.

The Before: I took this picture the day that I removed the original 5S-FE engine from my 1991 GT-S. It had 275,000 miles on it.

The After: I took this picture yesterday, the swap is almost complete, the only thing left to do in the engine bay is to install a fuel line. Wiring is done, I just need to installt he ECU and put it all back together. It is a JDM 2nd Gen 3S-GTE.

Looks great, one suggestion though... move the throttle cable off the heat shield and route it above the turbo-intercooler pipe.

Yeah, I'm not happy with the throttle cable right now either. It's the stock one so it is too short, routing over the top is sort of cumbersome and binding so I switched it to see if it was better. I hope to get a longer cable this week or after Christmas.

haha, just looking at your old 5S I felt happy for you, yet kinda bad for you... cuz the days of an easy oil filter change are gone, my friend! lol, I miss my old GT with the 3S-FE. Well, not miss it...but I do miss the easy filter change :D
