Default engine swap questions

kinda OT, kinda not. the daewoo group is crap and is bombarded with nothing
but scams. questions are as follows: has anyone ever swapped an
accord/prelude engine into a 2k daewoo lanos s, and if so, how hard was it?
the daewoo has an e-tek 1.6 16 valve engine in it, and from what ive seen,
some of the accords/preludes have similar engines under smaller hoods
(surprisingly, i have quite a bit of room under my daewoo). if ANYONE can
point me into the general direction of a daewoo discussion forum or anything
similar, id be most appreciative. despite puting a CAI into the daewoo last
night, i was only able to get a noticable boost on the high end (going from
80-120mph was FUN!), and not enough on the low end. many thanks!


ps - and before you bash daewoo, ill have you know that ive taken on many
tricked out civics and CRX's, and havent been beat that often. no, i dont
race on the street, i go to closed tracks that make you pay


pps - i want to buy about ~20 acres in austin texas and start a drag strip.
whos down? AFAIK, you cant enforce street racing laws on private property.
if you know different, by all means let me know!

Well,for starters,the engine/tranny mounts aren't going to match up,and the
engine wiring harness will have to be 'modified',and the engine control
module will not work,it willhave to be swapped along with the motor.Then
there's routing of fuel lines,exhaust piping,connecting the radiator to the
motor(standard hoses aren't going to fit).

These are just a -few- of the things I thought of.
Have fun.

Theoretically, any engine will fit in any car. You just have to decide how
much work and how much money you want to sink into the project.

My advice is to buy an engine made for a daewoo since the engine mounts
and various wiring harnesses,etc will match up perfectly and would require
very little work on your part. That would not be the case if you tried to
install an Accord/Prelude into it. I once talked to a person that placed a
chevy engine in a ford. He told me that it was a the craziest idea he ever
had. He spent over a week welding in new engine mounts and rewiring
everything. He said he could have placed a Ford into it in about 8 hours
or less.
