Alright, so I have a 95 (mk4) metro, 1.3 SOHC manual, i'm about to go DOHC but i need to know what i need exactly. The sticky at the top of this page is helpful yet vague for my situation. This is what i THINK i need

engine (duh)
trans
ecu
engine harness and dash harness
fuel sending unit?
rad?
axles?
alternator?
(my car has ABS so im not doing the rear disc conversion)

ive done my searching and just want to double check theres nothing im missing

not 100% sure on the axels, but i dont know if you need hubs as well, or you can just keep your existing transmission/axels

fuel sending unit should be ok. i dont know if the sohc 16v and 8v use the same pump, i was running the 16v pump on my gt swap.
rad and axles can be left stock since your keeping the stock hubs.
alternator, the denso alt is smaller so it goes in and out with out much hassle. the mitsu is a really tight fit.

if you're keeping the ABS you'll have to keep your axles, so no GT brakes/hubs up front.

you can keep your existing rad, but you might want to look into a 2 row radiator for a 95.


you need the engine harness obviously, but you'll have to tie in your existing dash harness, one wire at a time. you also need to do something with one of the warning lights in the cluster, I just can't remember what it was right now... one of my friend used his old engine harness to connect the GT engine harness so that he didn't have to cut too much of the car's remaining wires. It's a long time ago I don't remember every detail we had to do...

.

His car is a 95 8V

You'll need the GT, or at least high pressure pump.
