Default Anyone done an SR20DET conversion successfully?

Just wondering if it's cheaper than rebuilding my 1.8 SE engine from scratch.

YES.

We are all secretly running them. its pretty much a given on our cars. Drop right in with no modification and is super easy to get working.

pm "Hyper" for specs on the most current coolant re-route. Without it you're pretty much limited to only 600hp max.

600 hp? I swapped the turbo from an SR20 onto my miata 1.8 and I made 750whp on a stock bottom end with 1000cc injectors and a water to air intercooler.

that's because your car is green.

I thought about painting it a different color green, like perhaps Brian Spilner green, but I heard he's still a busta.
