would the turboed 12v alpha from a scoupe fit in my 97 accent??
that is, without any major modifications?

my engine has almost 160,000 miles on it and the check engine light has been on for about 3 years now.
I flat out dont want a beta swap-too much custom work.
And I would be satisfied with a scoupe engine(that is, if I could find one;))

any thoughts?

there is a guy upcountry who swop a accent motor into his Scoupe GT he is selling the motor, box and sideshaft's so im asumming if you donna do the full conversion you will have to do the shaft aswell, but if you just changing the motor motor's you could get away with is as the scoupe has a Half box its half accent half tiburon. but saying that people have put a Beta on a alpha gearbox and visa versa. My scoupe uses a Tib clutch and fly wheel but my engine is a alpha 1 :confused:

Hey matey, if the s coupe eng is around the same year as your accent then for sure it should drop right in. i looked at doing it myself they are both the g4ek 12v sohc model engine so mounts will be the same eng wiring looms should be the same only thing i'd worry is the clutch and box "do they have the strength?"
