Engine swap prep and stuff

Hoping to swap the engines over in my everyday 2500EFI next week after Albany long weekend. I am between jobs -swapping from Canada to Brazil so an engine swap on annual leave seemed like a nice bit of therapy.
I'm going from a ~115bhp 2.5 to a hopefully 165+ bhp 2.1 . Now obviously this won't like 2.5 gearing so a couple of cunning plans have been completed today. Firstly I had a couple of NOS 3.7 CWP off ebay last year - 100 quid each and they were mint. I had one builtup with all new Timken / RHP bearings and new seals this week and will swap over next week.


Part 2 of the cunning plan was to get some decent tyres at a slightly smaller rolling radius - a double bonus of this plan is that I now have some superb rain tyres for the white PI in the shape of Bridgestone RE 002 205/50 R15 mounted on my "spare" 7*15 superlites

I was previously running Sumitomo 195/60 R15 which although good in the dry were HOPELESS in the wet - they spun with ease even with my poor breathless old 2.5. Tonight was the first deluge of winter and even without a chance to scrub them in, the Bridgestones proved almost impossible to spin despite decent provacation - a cheap LSD substitute for the new engine I think!

I will almost certainly be taking these to Albany in case its wet at the hillclimb on Saturday - which seems like a strong possibility. And the gearing change from these two mods - top gear mph /1000rpm has dropped from 20.9 to 18.6 or about 12% - I was thinking of using a 4.11 diff but compromised as its a road car and Australia is flat - if it was doing the 10CR slogging over Alps I reckon the lower diff would be the go.



Sent the torque plate over to Craig Mk3 GT6 in Melbourne this week - then its off to Brisbane for Nicks GT6 engine - anyone else in Oz need it whilst its on a road trip?
