yeah on the old forum (1.6 to 2.0 swap says you can use the x-member IF its a 5sp.

got the starter out of the VE
ok doing some research on both forums found out this about the starters:
here is mine out of the VE

and here's the ones i found (thanks Ben Fenner for such detailed pics)

the only difference is the ground cable hookup. on the VE is a jack and on the DE is a plug, i can fix that easily.
anyways any inputs?

same number of teeth on the pinion? If everything else is the same it should work.

Looks like it should work to me. +1 on squirlz question about same number of teeth. I would just assume they are the same. My starter is out of the car right now if you want me to count though.

that would be awesome Ben, that way i can count mine's teeth. i just don't want to be set back another $150-200 on this swap.

i got a starter that i'll sell for 25 bux u pay shipping, it works good.. no idea on its age.. the ground wire could use some tape or maybe a whole new wire but no biggy really.. if ur interested i can take pics an such... but it looks like your ve starter will work so u should be ok.. let us know tho cause i got one of those too an i was just gonna ditch it but maybe not now lol

i'll try that one first. i counted the teeth and it has 8
2009-05-20 01:32:53
Yep, mine has 8 too. Just got back from checking it and working on the car.
