If your canister is in the rear you should be good on the metal lines then.


someone told me I'd still have to swap the metal lines over...this is good news!!!

Let me see if I can help. Here is a picture of a Ecotec fuel lines (the black part will remove from the lines)

On your 2200 motor that line is welded to the fuel rail and does not comes off. As PJ said you can cut it and use hose clamps to connect to the Ecotec fuel rail. Hose clamps can leak. The safe way is to get the line (black part in the picture). Hope this helps.



Oh god, your bring up horrible memories now The gas tank/lines swap was probably the worst part of the whole swap!!

back from the dead. but was wondering on the trans part of the swap. what was reused, needed, and recomended for replacement. thanks in advanced

just like ive heard before plan and prep to make this go quick..

you'll need the Eco trans. flywheel and clutch depending on the shape of the one you get, mileage, etc., unless you happen to get the Eco and trans together and their low mileage. trans mounts are reused, but I'd opt for the TTR bushings. shift cables, clutch fluid lines, reservoir, and axles are reused.

awsome yeah im planning on getting a spec clutch, complete TTR bushings, and low milage trans and engine. next question is more for boost or for performance. but would it be better to get a lightened flywheel or use stock to keep the inertia up when boosting??

what info is missing?

this is pretty much complete for the 00-02 swaps. I can't edit until its made a sticky.

i feel that there is alot of info missing like you have to use the eco tranny shifter bracket , cannot use 2.4 radiator does not flow coolant properly, make sure you stick with a ecm that is specific to the motor you have, fuel line part #'s, info on changing the evap vacum lines, fuel vacum lines, and the line coming out of the firewall(i still dont know what its for),im sure there was other stuff i was scratching my head about but cant remember.

im not saying its not a good start but its the little stuff that i mentioned that took me a week due to running all over ohio to get it done and the cost of a diag to find out about the ecm problems. especially the shifter bracket that had me gasp for air like "where am i gonna find that!!!"

i do respect you and respect what you've done but some of use are not as knowledgable as you on the ecotec and would like to be.



please STICKY this so it can be edited....b]STICKYb]STICKYb]STICKYb]STICKY

my trans came with that bracket so I didn't have to swap it over. Of course thinking about it more carefully are you sure they aren't the same? it is the same transmission after all...

fuel line part #'s,

those I have yet to dig up.

I could have swore I mentioned this in the original post, but apparently I didn't.

the hose coming out of the firewall is for the HVAC. without a vacuum source, the vents won't change position (defrost to front vents, front/feet mix, feet only, etc)
