    Documentation of a TE37 to 7M-GTE Swap

    Originally started with a TC setup:



    I will be swapping this:


    into this:





    I will document each step as I go along. The firewall has been notched 4" and the section has been boxed:







    The original shifter has also been relocated to suit the R154





    The car is plauged with a little rust so progress will be slow.

    Before:



    After:



    Plans include:

    rear-mounted radiator
    3" SS exhaust
    8.8 rear
    4 link
    T70 turbo
    30 x 12 x 3 I/C mounted behind grill
    expansion tank
    modified oilpan
    custom catch can
    shaved bay
    bigger injectors (not decided which yet)
    aftermarket ecu (not decided which yet)
    fuel cell ans external F/P
    swirl pot


    All welding and fabrication will be done by me.
