budomove's KFA d15b8 mpfi swap log

I am hoping to kick frank's a$$, yeah I'm frank.
I want to swap to a b8 from my 16 valve b1.
SVO tells me i need:

dizzy (he's got one)
ecu (he's got it)
injector clips (thanks matt)

The swap would come with mpfi, and i would modify my own harness, hopefully.

I was first thinking of a simple head swap, but SVO has informed me it would be better to swap a whole engine. i.e. less gaskets to buy/worry about

Edit: Just realized my back might not like an entire engine swap. SVO, did you have to lift your engine ever?

You'll also need a throttle body, as the swap is missing that.

Anyway, I'm thinking of compiling a full list of what we need to get this crap done, so lemme type for a few minutes.

Okee, MPFI/OBD1/D15B8 Swap List:

Longblock
OBD1 Distributor
P05 ECU
IM/TB
Injector Clips
Wire
Electrical Tape
Shrink Wrap
Spare Soldering Iron Tip
Wire Loom
Fix my Valve Cover to Trade You
Water Pump
Timing Belt
Alternator Belt
OBD1 Ecu Plugs
Drain Pan for Coolant

That's all I can think of right now, water pump/timing belt is a good thing to do before the engine goes in.

To your edit, I had my back seriously hurt for about three weeks from improper lifting of that b8 engine. But we'll find a hoist somewhere, no worries.

I just put water pump/timing belt/alt belt on last month, all new parts...think they're compatible? Nice list, by the way.

They ought to be, We can just put the timing belt up next to the old one and see.

Nice. Your back ok now? I am just worrying about getting it in and out of my car to put on hoist. That is when I can't imagine a way around lifting it. What do you think?

Hmm, I lost my reply, but anyway, I only hurt myself not thinking, but I totally stripped the engine also.

Anyway, we can double up on picking it up.

If you are still around, and willing, that would certainly be awesome. We'll see I guess, that's how I ruptured a disc though, picking up the wrong way how you did. Any idea how much the engine weighs? 200-250 lbs, maybe?
