Is a 3.3 in a 93 Shadow possible?
Hey guys and gals! My son and I bought a 93 Shadow 2.2 n/a. We had plans of making it a CSX clone for his 1st car while keeping it non-turbo for a while. He has since found a Daytona he would rather have, "it looks cooler" is his reasoning. Oh well. Today, an associate of mine mentioned that he is selling his 93 Caravan that has the 3.3 in it. He just wants it gone. He said that it wouldn't turn over and replacing the typical things didn't fix the problem. I am not sure what the issue is but lets pretend that the motor and trans is good. Can it fit in a 93 Shadow automatic? If so, what should I look out for as possible hurdles? Or, is it to labor intensive and I should just pass on this idea?
BTW, I read through the sticky of doing a 3.3 swap into a Daytona. Shouldn't they be the same? I mean, I can take a 2.2/2.5 from a Daytona and put it into a Shadow, so if a 3.3 will go into a Daytona I would assume it would work in a Shadow. But I hate to assume...
