Do you know if you can place an older efi engine into a 1997 geo metro? I have a metro with 250,000 miles, but I'd be curious if I can switch an older more fuel-efficient for my current 1 liter 3 cylinder g10 engine.
thanks

Yes. See the Metro lists for details. Sometimes it is easier to keep your manifolds and replace the block, etc.

Thanks. I'll probably need to read up a bit before making the dive. I've only had it two weeks.

Though I am an ardent early CRX fan, for the mpg/and fun(handling) factor; I very much admire the early 90's Metro's. I am 6 4", and have at least sat in one. I was very impressed w how comfortable and airy the cabin felt! A well thought out car!
Do these cars have fuel, and other sensors that seem to go out like many other 90's vehicles? The newest veh. I ever had was a '92 Dakota PU. When it's fuel sensor went out, I didn't enjoy the sudden deadness, of needing a tow, but most of all; not knowing (at the time) what was up????.....a very helpless feeling!
