Well, I just finished a 3L install for a fellow CEG member in his 1998 SVT Contour... :)

I did a 3L block/head, with his SVT cams and timing equipment, I port-matched the Oval intake runners to mate up with the SVT LIM/UIM, and installed a rebuilt MTX with a Torsen, and new SPEC stage 1 clutch kit, also MSDS Headers, and an Optimized 3L TB...


All I gotta say is............... DAMN !!! :evil:

This SVT is FAST!! and I didn't even push it past 5500 rpms, so as not to glaze the new clutch!!! But after it gets tuned, its going to be a Beast!! :cool:

Anybody here that wants a 3L installed, please start getting parts togther!! So worth the amount of money, no question! Motors go from $300- $500, and with labor and extra parts, you could look @ around $2000-$2500 and have a SWEET Cougar or Contour!! :bowdown:

Just wanted to share, because after test driving the Car for about 15 minutes, I walked into my kitchen laughing to myself because I had SO MUCH FUN!!! Dawn thought I was crazy!! :rofl:

Shoot count me in also lol, I would be willing to make the drive there from the west coast to you. I want a 3l so bad, plus with the svt cams should be sweet sweet! I should have all my parts soon then I have to save some for the install and engine. Lazer red cougars for the win, I will let you know though!

when can i help i wanna learn how to do the 3l swap i think ill have one coming up very shortly hehe..
I am starting work on it this Sunday... I have to finish Casey's Cougar right now, as i just finished swapping the M3 BMW (just need to get it to start, as it has a DEAD battery!! Won't even jump enough to turn the starter solenoid! :banghead:)...

Casey's goes back into the carport to be finished by Friday the latest (hopefully), and Jared's gets here Saturday for major reconstruction on Sunday!! Hopefully I can have some time to Port-match the 3L before this Sunday... will make the whole swap go smoother!
