    Default Celibaby goes under the knife v.215 swap

    July 24, 2009
    Bought Jasmine for $250. Clean body, no serious damange, clean VIN, no accidents, etc. Here's how she looked (previous owner's picture).





    Some better shots all around once she was in my garage.















    August 25, 2009
    After some debating as to what I'd be doing, I proceeded to pull out the motor in preperation of the 3s-gte swap.








    October 14, 2009

    Engine teardown commences. Was orginally planning on basic maintenance (intake/exhaust gaskets, water pump, etc). Ended up tearing motor 90% down (left pistons/rods/crank in) and resealed everything possible.

    Obligatory turbo shot:









    Hour or so later, it's a mess in the driveway.



    Random component pictures:

    Exhaust & Turbo manifold:



    Block:



    #1 cylinder wall:



    Head:



    valves:




    Few other obligatory pictures:

    Bottom end completed. Front and rear main seals replaced, sump and oil pan re-sealed, new water pump installed.












    Next task was to clean the block/head mating surface (block did not see a hot tank dump as I didn't want to pull pistons/crank out).








    November 29, 2009
    Make a lot of progress, finally starting to resemble an engine again. Started out with the ARP head studs.








    After Doggah inspects....



    She gives the go ahead to secure the head to block.




















    All torqued & retorqued the next morning, final torque to occur after 1000 miles.






    Love this last shot here, engine on stand, Jasmine in background, and Celicatech up on the laptop on Jasmine.

    Begin the task of converting the MR2 RWD e-153 to FWD




    Removing mr2 selector



    Trying to figure out how to get roll pins out without cracking case (failed, had to crack case anyway)



    Selector bracket out, all ready to install st185 hardware.




    December 17, 2009
    Received TWM short throw shifter for the st165 and some st165 shifter cables. Time to install them.



    OEM length shifter



    Started pulling apart interior to install. The shifter only needed the center console removed, I removed the radio bezel as I had to install shifter cables as well.





    Had to use a 'vice' to knock out the nylon cups on the stock shifter.



    Cable comparions:




    Here's the cables going from the shifter thru the firewall.





    I had to lift the front up a bit & loosen the steering rack bolts/nuts in order to get my 10mm wrench in and remove the grommet & plate holding the cables in.




    All finished with the installation, I had to work the metal under the pivot ball just a bit to let the cup clear.






    Installation completed:






    Just for a side by side visual, here's the TWM shifter vs. the OEM shifter (exclude about a half inch due to the shift knob being installed on the TWM, it's actually lower than it appears in the picture).

    After nearly 2 weeks of brain bashing and phone calls, I realize I'm a dumbass. I figured out how to time the cams. As with other engines, there is typically a steel back plate that is secured behind the cams against the head with marks to assist with timing. I couldn't locate this plate. Turns out, there was no plate. The timing marks were on top of the cam caps, as well as on the valve cover itself.






    I almost messed up my crank timing due to the vertical mark pictured here. I am not sure what this does, but I confirmed the divot and arrow need to line up to verify #1 cylinder is at TDC with a screwdriver.




    Cam timing:



    installed Valve cover, lined up cams, and used white crayon for visual references.







    Tensioner installed, idler installed, properly tensioned, and a few dozen hand cranks all 3 marks continued to line up.



    Engine's getting closer to being complete.



    December 30, 2009
    Installation of head components begins. First up, intake manifold. TIP. Tilting the engine at a 45* angle will assist with intake and exhaust manifold installation, the full weight of the mainfold can be rested on the engine without it putting to much strain on the studs.










    Cooling system accessories attached. At first I forgot to install the thermostat, so I removed the water neck & when re-installing the water inlet something went wrong & it snapped. I was able to source another st215 water inlet (thanks PITCELICA).

    Due to unforseen circumstances, I had to go a month without any updates or progress. As well, I also accidently moved my AC compressor the wrong way, and thus bled the full system of all freon. I am currently running the St215 engine, st215 power steering pump, st162 power steering lines, st162 alternator, and st162 AC compressor.

    Fedex delivery guy: 0
    e153 transmission: 1


    Guy loaded up the transmission in the box onto a dolly, and promptly proceeded to flatten both tires on it (I loaned him my compressor to fill it up, only to flatten them again).

    He thought the transmission was for the Ford in the driveway. He was a bit taken back that the transmission for a lil' 4 banger car would weight so much.

    Food looking Tim. Where are you getting your new gaskets and such at. I'm planning the same swap for my 93. But I also want to re seal everything before I put it in along with a new T-belt and water pump. Keep up the good work

    Seriously, do the 215 swap. If you get a hold of venus they're cheap right now.

    The majority of parts right now for the 215 are interchangeable with the 205 engine, and even some with the 185 engine. It's not that hard to source parts, Aaron over at ithaca toyota and his cohort (Steve I think his name) were EXTREMELY interested in the swap I'm doing, as they've rarely come across this swap. Thanks to Kevin he's hooked me up with a dealer overseas that readily has the parts in stock. I ordered everything for the reseal from New Zealand, parts arrived in just under 7 days.

    Got the motor 90% stripped down. Oil pan & lower cover is removed. Gasket sealant all removed (it was leaking a bit already, so figured I'd rip & reseal it all). Nice and purty clean in there. Damn this is gonna be a fun car if/when I get it running.
