Postby kingy55 » Mon Sep 17, 2012 11:38 am

Hi i have a 1998 daewoo nubira eurowagon with a 2.0 ltr and a 5 speed gearbox and want to put a 1.6ltr and 5 speed out of a 1998 nubira sx sedan. Can anyone tell me how much trouble i with have? I have both complete cars. Or can i just swap the gearboxes? Any help would be great

Topic moved from Tech specs to Engine/Intake/Exhaust.

Your gearboxes will be nearly identical between the two cars, you have the choice to use either one in your swap.

You should not have any mechnical problems with fitment in the swap, but there will be differences in the electrical system.

I don't know the exact differences in the wiring harnesses, but it's likely you may have to move all the engine wiring over from the 1.6L car over into the 2.0L car.

I have never personally looked at a 1.6L Nubira, I don't know if the wiring connectors are the same as the 2.0L

If they are, it won't be a really hard job, if they are different it could become very complex and you might have to completely disassemble large parts of both cars.
