    7mge to 7mgte common problems?

    Alright got almost everything I need to know cept a few things like, does the gte bolt onto the W58 transmission? Is there anything else that this swap requres? I already know about tac. Ecu for ge works on gte i think. Any other problems that pop up. Sorry bout bringing this up again but I just can't find shit about it on the forums.

    If you are going GTE, get everything that is on a GTE car, like the R154, driveshaft, ecu, wiring harness.
    7M-Clevite bearings, Eagle Rods, Carillo Pistons, Treadstone TR1235 Intercooler, Tial F46, HKS SSQV, Mishimoto Radiator & Clutch Fan, Apexi Neo, Beech Performance stuff & adding more...

    100% yes, I got a donor car for my swap to make it a little easier. No cutting, or welding. For the clutch master cylinder you have to pop out two plastic body plugs on the firewall. That is the most fabrication you will have to do.

    Depends, you might want a gte rear end, or you could put an aftermarket diff in your existing one.
