    Posted: 22 Mar 2019 at 1:22am
So, I've been thinking about starting this big project for my P11. It currently has a GA16 with a five speed manual and is LHD. Been thinking about swapping an sr20ve engine with the six speed manual transmission from a JDM p12. I have a possible deal on the engine that comes with the trans, ecu and wiring harnessess.

Now I have a few questions.

1. What are the obvious changes I need to make since it is a GA16 to SR20 swap on a p11?
2. Does the transmission fit in place and if not, what changes need to be made?
3. Since it's a JDM engine, will I run into problems with mine being a LHD model? For example not being able to get the AC working etc.

For parts I can get a p11 GT parts car for pretty cheap. Any help is appreciated, I've tried looking around but I didn't find anyone swapping a p12 sr20 into a p11 Si. Thanks!

Thank you! Build is currently just in the planning phase but as soon as I get enough information and the required funds it will be on the way.

Right now the plan is:
1.Swap the engine and trannie and get everything functional
2.Disks in the back
3.Slamming it with a BC-racing kit
4.Get all that shit street legal

And some additional steps I have in mind for later on down the road:
5.Nice performance exhaust
6.Some sweet new rims and tires
7.Maybe a paint job? I wanna keep the sleeper look so nothing too flashy but some nice new paint and getting it rust protected (Finnish winters aren't too nice on our cars)
