Question Sammy Engine Upgrade.

I have a 1988 sammy. The engine is toast. I also have a 1993 sidekick with a 1.6 16v engine. I stripped the sidekick's wiring out to have the stuff to be able to wire the brain into the sammy for the fuel injection. I see Calmini has an adapter available. Are there any other options?

I also like Petroworks adaptor kit. Theirs keep the motor lower so you don't need to use a body lift.

I'm running the Petroworks motor swap kit and the wiring harness was reworked by Trail Tough. No problems. Love it.

I also have the petroworks kit with the trail tough wiring. the petroworks kit has def been the best for a while but you might could try trailtoughs new full circle motor mounts which assintually is the same design as the petroworks kit. If u have any questions, ask lowrangeoffroad he has the best costumer service ever, and he will tell u which one is the best cause he sells all of them at the best price. i have ordered over $1000 worth of stuff from him and have had nothing but great experiences with him. one time something with my credit card mest up and he realized that it was his fault. so he overnighted it and i had the part at my door the next day. i didnt even ask him to. lol!

sammy engine

Thanks for the information. I do have a question, is the petroworks adaptor kit recommended because of the motor mounts? If so, it looks like the trail tough engine adaptor is the better way to go. I am thinking about going with solid mounts. I just need the engine adaptor.

the petroworks kit is the best because it drops the 1.6 down low enough to close the hood. the trailtough kit has to be used with a small body lift for the hood to close without hitting the top of the engine. the petroworks kit also comes with amazing directions, labeling every nut and bolt. other than that, i think the motor to trans adapter plates are about the same in design.

Cool

I am thinking of going with Petroworks for the adapter. One question I have, will the Sidekick's clutch assembly work for the swap?
