Re: engine swap 01 gt

The only thing different with the 04s over the 01 was the trans, if manual.. auto was the same, as far as I know, the more knowledgeable will have some input shortly, I'm sure...

Re: engine swap 01 gt

After looking up a bit more, everything's interchangeable, but I'm still not sure on clutch/flywheel if manual... It wouldn't be hard to swap it over! Just be sure the new motor has a pilot bearing in the block, if it came out of an automatic and you're putting it into a manual car --

flex plate/auto are the same... everything else should be a direct swap

The trans will work also you just have to make some "adjustments" there is nothing that will not swap over. I put a 01 motor in my 96 and only problem i had was a wiring harness issue.The wiring problem is the 96 used two different coolant sensors and the 99-04 used 1.

With the swap the only major issue you will have is if you decide to use the coil on plug setup.You have to have the 01 computer and a tune plus tons of wiring.I used the stock coil packs with the 96 ecu.It ran fine also you will need the 96 IAC.

Re: engine swap 01 gt

I need to swap my engine from a '01 GT. I have no idea where to go for this kind of work. I don't know nothing about parts or repairs so most terminology is another language to me.

Can you please tell me where would you go (or how to search) for a trustworthy place to do an engine swap?

Well it isn't hard to do but if you have never pulled a motor or anything i would just pay someone.Maybe you can find someone local who will just help you do it and make sure you dont make any mistakes.
