I was just wondering how many of you guys have totally finished the DOHC swap, and have all the bugs and gremlins worked out. I've been reading a lot of older posts, and see lots of ongoing issues after the swap is in and running, and was curious who has a complete and perfectly running car. Thanks. I can't wait till I can get started on mine!
Hello we have completed 2 swaps one a93 5spd, a 965spd and were almost finished with a95auto. Seems we try out different mounts and locations for the ecm but its worth the effort, these set-ups really do scream. Ilike it better than the V8 swap we have. Have fun norm.

Awesome. I'm glad to hear that. By perfect, I just mean everything is working, sensors, not throwing codes, etc. DKOV: I think that was probably ne that contacted you. I just sent you an email this morning. Well, hearing all you guys gives me more confidence. What is the average time it takes to complete the swap? I mean, I know it will vary, but say a guy just sat down and did it, how long do you think it ought to take? If I decide to just go ahead and start on it now, am I going to be at it till next fall working weekends, or culd it be done in a few months? Thanks guys, I'm really getting excited now!
my 3.4 dohc swap took me about a month.i am one of the few people that have used a automatic tranny and might be the only person using the obdII pcm and i have not had any major issues or drivability problems. i would say, ask questions,do your homework and make a plan of attack (check list) before you start the project.
