check the faq in the sr20ve section on sr20forum.com. there is at least two full write ups on installs with pictures

cool,will do.

So i went there,and saw that i jus need to wire the 2 vvl solenoids,and wire the distributor.
the links with pictures and the wiring diagram are dead tho,any alternative?
also,wat if i get the harness with the engine,would that just drop in with the vvl ecu?
maybe i should get a det...

i believe the vvl ecu wont work because it was meant for cvt trannys. the wiring diagram is on a few threads. search for ve distributor and it should bring it up. chriscar has some pics but they are for a highport swap. what pics do you need? im in the middle of a swap right now and i may have the ones you need.

Just use your usmd distributor, no sense in using the ve one.

Didnt one of the ve's have a six speed on it?
the pictures i was lookin for are for the lowport swap.id like to see the wires i need to add/modify.see,nuts and bolts are easy to me,but electrical not so much.

get some 16VE cams and use the 16VE ECU...if you can find one

very easy swap. solinoids have no +or- just give one wire power per sol and contol the ground with a window swich.

5hr motor swap with air tools

cool,so power to the solenoids,ground to a swithch(thinking of the msd)and run the correct ecu wire to the box?and air tools i have.ill be doing it at my shop.problem is i need a tranny.its the second one ive gone thru already.be posting an add shortly when i free up some cash.waiting on that money from the government they jus sent out.
the main reason i wanna do ve is cuz ive already killed two trannys and i think the det will just eat more,plus axles.im kinda poor so yea.lol.plus all motor 4 bangers are frickin cool.
