GT 1.9 Engine Swap, CF4 to CF3?
Long story short, swallowed a swirl flap and had to get a second hand engine from scrap yard.
New engine was from an '05 car and mine is an '07.
Mechanic swapped over all mechanicals from my existing car to new engine including fuel pump (which apparently has a different loom) but now informs me the timing belt is different and this engine basically won't work with my setup.
Could someone elaborate on what this means and tell me if it's possible to use the replacement engine in any combination?
I have suggested swapping the replacement head onto the existing engine as that seems to be where the damage is from the swirl flap.
Really appreciate any help on this!
