M54B30 ZHP engine swap into 323
Just bought a M54B30 ZHP engine off a wrecked car for about $2600. Next week the shipper is sending it out to me and I will start doing my swap. I am going to replace my M52TUB25 engine.
The ZHP engine has about 90,000 miles.
Planning to do the VANOS seal, vanos rattle and change out all the gaskets.
I am planning to run my original injectors, MAF, throttle body (mechanical), and DME (sharked).
Of course I will get it DYNO after the swap and report back. Currently my car has about 175HP (Dynojet) so I am very anxious to see how many ponies I will see after the swap.
More to follow. the update will be slow because I have to wait for the engine to arrive but I will start updating with pix and of the build as soon as I get the parts.
