JT's 1987 CSX #751 Clone Project

Step 1: T1 - T2 Engine Swap

This page shows the process of removing a bad '87 turbo I (log intake) motor, and installing a good used Shelby Lancer engine.

Starting with an '87 Turbo I adds a level of complication in the conversion to Turbo II specs. To ease the conversion, a used '87 CSX engine wiring harness was purchased. Both this harness, and the stock T1 harness were combined to make one good harness, since both had damaged parts.
