Ok, I've read the Hyper auto club report on the scoupe turbo conversion. To get the compression ratio down to 7.5:1 I'd have to put in the turbo Scoupe pistons in my non Scoupe. The piston diameter of the Scoupe is 75.470mm and the Scoupe turbo's piston is 75.465mm, how would I be able to put the turbo piston to fit or could I swap the entire top end of the Scoupe for the Turboed top end. Next is spark plugs that have to be 2 heat settings lower than the Scoupe nonturbo, but I don't think this will cause a problem to change them. The oil sprays for cooling the pistons that are in the turbo Scoupe engine, can they be put into the Scoupe nonturbo engine in some way. I would also have to change the camshaft would that create a problem? Next is the air flow meter which I don't think will be a problem to change. Neither would the 2 engine temperature sensors. The other problem I have is with the Ignition system. It says that the Scoupe turbo has a standard distributor to control spark timing and the nonturbo has a fully electronic ignition. Can this be switched over or does it even have to be switched? Then the ECU, can I just use the Scoupe turbo one or do I have to get a new Eprom chip programed or use an aftermarket one like Motec? Then I put in the Mass Air Pressure (MAP) sensor, hopefully with no problems. Then change the fuel injectors. If you have any input on this please help. Also, I could save alot of trouble by just swaping the block of the engine right? If you know if the Scoupe turbo block fits where the nonturbo block goes please let me know.

thanks in advance!
Mike

Thanks s-coupe, but I've been trying to get info for that 4g63t swap and no one seems to know all that much about it. All I know is that the motor mounts are in the same spots. But, I don't want to put my car AWD so can I still use the hyundai tranny or do I have to swap engine and tranny? I know also that I need the ECU from the other car and wires. Accept for that I don't know if anything else will fit, like shafts, steering knuckles...

I've never seen a turboed scoupe in my surroundings so that would be virtually impossible. I would really like to do something with what I have. I must admit, I'm thinking about selling to buy an old Honda CRX, but everyone around here is driving Honda's. I WANT A FAST HYUNDAI!!!! Just to be different and I just love my Scoupe's look.

Hey s-coupe. I was looking at some pics today and I think from what I can see on the pics of a 91 Plymouth Laser turbo is that it sits on the driver side of the car. My engine sits on the passenger side. Did I see right on the pic or do the engine's really match? I know someone who has a 93 Eagle Talon turbo AWD. I'm trying to hook something up with him so I can take a look under his hood and make a few measurements. When are you going to start your swap?

I'd be happy with 20 minute 1/4 mile right now with the way it's running!<img src=icon_smile_dead.gif border=0 align=middle>

Hey s-coupe. Could you send me a pic of your engine bay? I would like to see if it's the same as mine.

Guess I want have to stress out about that mitsu/talon/eclipse thing since I'll probably just turn my Scoupe into a turbo Scoupe. Any good internet surfers know of any canadian salvage yard site anywhere on the net? Oh yeah! I almost forgot! I found an old site of a guy who put some performance in his Scoupe turbo. http://www.geocities.com/MotorCity/3387/scoupe.html
Take a look! He lists the mods he's put into it.
