Then I began the rehabilitation of the C20LET and preparing to enter the Tigra. No major work on the engine because it was in relatively good condition.
Here is the engine in its own juice at the beginning of disassembly. The turbo is cracked at the seat of the wastegate (seen above the wastegate valve) and the impeller is blocked.
He will be replaced by another turbo in immaculate condition and taking out its pressures.
We start engine cleaning as well as the box, and change the box (F28) to fill it back into the Tigra. Indeed,
must drill and tap holes in order to attach the mounting box. It is necessary to assemble a kit 2WD (2WD), since the original Calibra,
there is a transfer box, the latter being in 4WD. As the Tigra (at least for now) is to switch to 2WD, you must remove it
via a ring and a sort of cover with oil seal.
Then just change the clutch (Sach) and do a final cleaning, reassembling the gearbox and reconnection of the engine / gearbox.
At this point, the engine is ready to go in the car. Many people prefer to put the engine entire in the car. I prefer for my part to put it
without the head, especially in the case of a swap, which allows me to go much more easily able to look around and put hands
control modifications, etc.. Each way of working!
It is time to swap!
