    Roodoo2 LX Sedan B20 IN!

    It is in, but the front mount has a dowel in it that I do not think there is a hole for. I am not positive yet so I left the nuts off the mount until I can get under there. It seems to sit pretty strieght otherwise, knowing it is a little high on the front mount.

    Nice work man! Do I assume correctly that that A20 intake manifold is going to go on the B20?

    Re: Roodoo2 B20 IN!

    thanks for the cheers !
    This has been a scary project for me, not the work really but not knowing how this power plant is going to work out. I took out a good running motor and tranny. Good thing is this motor fits in just like oem so I won't have to cut anything so I can always put it back like it was and be ok.
    Ive had it since March 08 so, naw it wasn't so quick to go in..lol
    There is a long way to go yet, getting the mounts right, figuring out how to use this kind of auto tx, replace the selector cable, getting a trans cooler, plugging off a dozen coolant hoses I wont use, setting up the 38/38 intake and carb, putting in the d16 teg dizzy, making the left side cv axle, arghhhh too much to list.

    One cool thing is this motor looks huge sitting next to the A20, and it fills up the engine compartment.. looks totally different. Seems like the power steering pump will be a lot tighter fit too.

    Good progress! I think you will be the first auto B20A in a while. I remember when I was at that stage as well. This has got to be the year of the B20's!

    yeah the writing was on the wall Exile, you, mykwikcoupe, tooloud, ( who else? )got motors in this year.
    I started another thread about these automatics, if anybody knows where I can get info on jdm autos please post it. This one has shift or lockup solenoids on top of the tranny, with fluiid passages under them. I am not using ECU or TCM with my plans. Wohdog says he just wired his hot with the key on, constant on and his ran ok, he said as long as the throttle valve cable was adjusted right. That is what has me baffled, why would it need solenoids. I can't find anything on these, most info is 90 and up where the solenoids absolutley were needed to control shifts

    Re: Roodoo2 B20 IN!

    Congratulations.....Yeah there seems to be a lot more swaps popping up here lately. I noticed the last two B20A's i have seen lean pretty bad to one side. I looked at mine and it sits level side to side so im curious to why that is perhaps a wrong mount?

    Re: Roodoo2 B20 IN!

    Had to use the A20 front mount. At first I just flipped the rubber frame part around so the dowel pin would fit, then the stud on the rubber mount was too short so the other one worked perfect. No lean that I can tell but then the car is in close quarters so it is hard to look at.

    The belt looks and feels kinda loose to me, I pulled the cover off to line up TDC to install the D16zc teggy distributor.

    need to plug off a LOT of coolant ports, & EGR gone !

    As you can see I have a lot of loose ends and thing to deal with yet. I spent extra time getting around wrung off bolt on the trans mount. Finally just took an 11mm socket and hammered it on the wrung out 12, worked like a charm after digging up five other 12 sockets to get a tighter one.

    Re: Roodoo2 B20 IN!

    the belts on mine are like that too, i think its just something to do with the valve springs turning the exhaust cam backwards when the engine stops. I wouldn't worry about it

    Re: Roodoo2 B20 IN!

    Im guessing the lean is coming from using different mounts since there is a few different ones floating around. I was using the steel front mount on mine but i do have a brand new cast one that i ordered from Japan. I thought i read that there was a slight difference with the front mounts JDM to USDM but don't quote me on that.

    Well good luck!

    Re: Roodoo2 B20 IN!

    The reason the cast one would not work was just the stud on the car's front mount was too short to give any threads.
    Well I had a chance to work on it some today, hard though it was extremely thick and hot out today so every hour feels like three.
    I hung the tranny on the hoist and removed the cross brace, two mounts, and dust sheild to install the shift selector cable. It went relatively quick since I used a step down to 3/8 adapter on my el cheapo pep boys 1/2 inch cordless impact.
    I pulled the plugs out so I could turn it over by hand, I might have turned it backwards some, not sure which way to turn the crank with the rachet. Shot some marvel mystery oil in the holes to let it work I need to spin it over soon to put up some oil pressure.
    Do importers put something in the starter bolt holes? there was this white petrified dog doo stuff plugging both holes. I shot some pb blaster to loosen it up so I can clean the threads.

    Re: Roodoo2 B20 IN!

    Speed sensor question: does the fact that the transmission is JDM affect the ability for the speed sensor pulser on the tranny to signal the speedometer in MPH and not KPH. IN other words should I change out the one off my old transmission so the speedmeter reads right ?

    I think i had to use my USDM speed sensor because the JDM one was not calibrated the same.
