I have a 92 ls sedan w/ AT that apparently already had a different engine put in. I am swapping out my engine (block cracked) with a JDM I got and I am having a couple problems:
1) The new engine comes with a Diff attached but it does not have a cooler in it (no coolant lines from the block or water pump, in fact the WP has NO outlets instead of 1 or 2). I'm afraid my original Diff might also have a problem since the engine froze hard with water in it instead of anti-freeze
and a lot of water came out before the diff fluid when I drained it, so I wanted to use the new one that came with the new engine. Can I take them apart and put the oil cooler out of my dif? (I'm in Colorado and the high altitude makes for high temps and cooling stresses as bad ad Phoenix where I'm from and I go back to AZ frequently to visit family and friends) Or would I be ok running the diff without a cooler? How would I plug the WP outlet?
2) There is no oil cooler on the engine. my original engine has a cover thing where the oil cooler should be and the new engine doesn't have anything there..... is this a problem or am I worrying over nothing?
3) My old engine has fuel injectors that are difficult to remove (have to use a small hook or jewelers screwdriver to remove one side of the latching wire at a time) and the new engine has plugs that have nice releases built into them (squeeze the sides and it pulls right off) are the injectors actually different (as far as how much fuel they meter) or are just the plugs different?
That's what I can think of now... The JDM engine has a code of C32A - 2050656 if that helps....
