    Hi all.

    We are installing a JDM 3rd gen 3SGE from a ST202 in my 1989 ST162.
    The engine is mounted but we need a few details sorted out.

    First I would like to know what we can do about the exhaust, we are missing a downpipe and flange. We need to bolt the stock exhaust to this one's manifold, anyone have experience or guidance?
    I might be able to be more specific some time from now but right now this is the best I can do.

    It also look like we might be out of clearance for the radiator, but we haven't test-fitted it yet. I'm pretty sure at least the passenger side fan will either have to go or be a "pusher" fan on the front side of the radiator.

    Anyone done this swap before?
