Re: 1997 850 GLT Engine Swap (M4.3 M4.4 AC compatability issue)

Well I’ve decided to go the no AC route and go with the 2.3. Gonna be doing a few mods with the swap as well as a few other small things, and I may start a little build thread so stay posted. Also does anyone have any 96-97 2.3t motor that they would sell that’s in decent shape? I found one out of M...

The car has an ARD OEM R tune, but it wasn’t on my original ECU, they just sent me an entirely different one.

Re: 1997 850 GLT Engine Swap

My current ECU isn’t the original ECU, and the AC didn’t work in the first place so I can’t say as to whether or not that was affected. I’ll mention it to ARD to see if they are aware of it or have a fix, and go from there. I won’t be using an untuned ECU since I will be swapping it anyways. If it’s...

Re: 1997 850 GLT Engine Swap

I recently sent ARD an email and am waiting reply as to if they can get me an ECU to work for a project like this. I do not plan on going with an RN block, and have found what is said to be a 97 2.3t. Considering it’s not an RN block, and I will be using a completely different ECU (not sure what exa...

1997 850 GLT Engine Swap (M4.3 M4.4 AC compatability issue)

Hello all, Used the forums for advice from time to time but this is my first post. My 1997 850 GLT has a ruined block due to getting too hot after a heater core blew. As many of you know these came with a 2.4 LPT, and although they’re cheap and easy to find, I would like to put in a 2.3 (B5234T) or ...
