Default 94-97 1.8 swap using Megasquirt

I'm looking to swap my 1.6 in my 91 to a 94-97 1.8. If I get MSPNP installed first, what all do I need to swap over the motors? Sorry in advance if I'm in the wrong section.

nothing.

there's nothing special about a 94-97 that would require anything different in the ECU.

I mean what parts do I need to do the actual swap? Only the motor mounts or nothing but the 94-97 motor? I do plan on doing the 99 head swap way down the road after doing the motor swap.

That kit is on back order. My question is will the mspnp run the new motors electronics? If so then is all I need just motor mounts until i do the head swap?

what new electronics? the coils?

you'll reuse the 90-93 coils.

the biggest difference will be the idle valve and vTPS if you run the 1.8L TB.
