I have a 1996 Geo Metro that recently began running on 2 cylinders. I bought the car a few months ago and was the victim of odometer fraud. The car that I believed to have 120,000 kms had probably double that.

I found a local wrecker that had several wrecked Metros/Fireflies/Sprints for sale and found a donor 97 metro ( 5spd 1.3 liter) and purchased the motor for 600 dollars (CAD)

The fellow that I bought the car from agreed to do the swap for 300 bucks because he figured it could be done in a day...

I searched this forum and several others looking for information on the swap and found some relative information as well as some misleading information.

I wanted to list the parts required for the swap of a 5sp 3cyl. to a 5spd 4cyl.

4cyl. Motor
4cyl. Trans
4cyl. ECU
4cyl. Harness
4cyl. Driveshafts
Relocated trans mount.

I drove the car home today after letting the mechanic work on it for a week. This IS a straight-forward swap but, be aware of the parts that are required.

I must say that I am impressed with the idle quality of the 4 cylinder motor and the acceleration is now better then the growth of moss and the movement of glaciers. 8)

Glad you like the new engine though!
