Which LSi is it you have a 92-95 or a 96-00?

I think the 92-95's just drop straight in where with the 96-00's you need to replace the mounts

right as edd says mounts depending on year will need changed, engine loom, dizzy, alternator, gearbox,ecu, driveshafts etc will need changed. depending on the year of the your car and the engines year you will have to change its obd, whats wrong with your current engine? i have a d16z6 cylinder head for sale to convert your lsi into a mini-me vtec machine! alot easier plus you will get 135bhp and will rev to 8000rpm! + good torque.

thought of something else there, if you want to be legit (tell the dvla, ins etc) you will need a technitions report, to make sure everything is how it should be, which means seeing as you lsi only has drum brakes on the back you may have to get a rear disk convertion!
