i was wondering what i should do to build my 2.2 ecotech in a 03 cavalier 5spd. i want to try to use all stock parts. was wondering what swaps from certian cars to make more power etc
Lsj exhaust manifold is a direct bolt on and has larger diameter primaries (if you will) than the stock l61 manifold.
Le5 intake manifold flows better as well but you will need an adapter to fit the stock tb to it. Lsj injectors are 36 lbs and will work although you will want to tune the ecu with hptuners to make everything play well together.
Where is the best place to buy stock parts from to refresh a l61
I Got a 02 Cav. with a 2.2L, looking to make it a Ecotec can i keep the bottom end or would i need to replace the hole motor?? or could i make the SOHC a beast im a poor boy on a budget
There isn't a SOHC engine. It is a OHV. You have to swap complete engines and transmissions if you want an Ecotec. There is a how to thread in the 3rd Gen forum.
