I'm trying to get this 90 fwd engine ready to go in my galant, but I can't find a good list of what the differences are. Things I know, flywheel/clutch, throttle body, cam sensor, plate between tranny/engine, oil filter housing. What else am I missing?

Brackets that bolt to the block for the motor mounts. All the brackets bolted on the front and the rear of the block will need to be swapped out with the appropriate GVR-4 specific brackets.

When I say front/rear I'm referring to their relative positions if the engine were installed in the engine bay.

Yup, forgot those. I have the rear, don't remember the number for the front. Anyone remember what the number should be?

I think its 344, but I would double check that I might have mixed them up.

Also the coil pack and ptu. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif Glad I at least have the right ones, just wish I knew before installing the engine.

Fuel rail is different, as is the hose to it from the filter. Really sux finding these things after I put it together. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/banghead.gif
