So, as I suspected, we’re not taking about the same thing. WA will accept an abridged test. Full adr testing as required by other states is (still) >$3k.

I don’t imagine the abridged test would be acceptable elsewhere in Australia.


https://www.sau.com.au/forums/topic/277 ... s-testing/


A quick google shows NSW accepts the IM240 test for engineering modified engines, which is actually free at Botany. That's the state that the member is from that you were telling the test costs $3.5k

https://speednation.com.au/modified-car ... ons-guide/

https://www.service.nsw.gov.au/transact ... ng-booking

In fact, QLD, S.A, ACT also accept the IM240 test for the same purpose. Looks like it's all pretty cheap in those states too. I didn't google the other states/NT. It's a 240 second dyno test, there's no need for it to cost $3.5k

Still no source for the $3500 price and you don't even know which state it came from, sounds like you pulled it out of your arse to me. In any case it seems like the number is way out no matter where you are in the country, maybe you should be posting factual information on the forums. :wink:

Engineer that plated mine said that the only reason the M18 wasn't compliant was due to its lack of EGR and that so long as all emissions control was used from the M13 it complied. If it wasn't an engine from the same family it would be a different story.

Finished conversion to my sons Jimny (2004 non VVT) on the weekend now has 1.5 motor from a cruze. Change in torq is remarkable car has a lot more pull.

Was a really easy conversion just time consuming. Left all the sensors, inlet manifold and throttle body on the M15 engine. Only had to change flywheel, fuel rail, exhaust manifold and bottom pully. I think we could have kept the bottom pully but we had belts for the jimny so changed it over.

Congratulations, definitely worth the effort.

Hey,

i am after the swap, to m15a (108hp)
notice from my jimny and the other who make the swap that the engine runs hot
by OBD you notice the city (at winter) is about 97-98, and if i stand for a while it reach the 101-102 (before the swap 91-93, and top 95 by standing)
highway is also the same, 97-102 (91-93 before)
have someone notice OBD coolant temp?
the swap was made by keep all the parts from last engine, exclude injectors
maybe bigger radiator?
please advice, we live in hot country as yours so you are the best example for us (ISRAEL)
thanks

Hi Minare,
My Jimny is running m18a and OBD temp stays at 89-93. While stationary (at idle) on very hot days with the A/C runnings it can go slightly higher.
The 1.5 should run at the same temperature as the 1.3 but of course, maybe the 1.5 you have is not as efficient as it was when it was new. Did you use the thermostat from the 1.3 or the 1.5?

Hey Zukenutter,
thank you for your reply,
i will check the issue, compression all pistons, bought from biggest japan engine dealer here.
i can tell you that this symptom appears at least 3 engines 1.5VVT, the same, with no explain.
we are all A/T with external cooler, i bought oil cooler (mocal) hopefully installed this week for tests
but after all we all have the same problem, can you light some mistakes that might we all here did? (we all did with same instructions)

You may have air trapped in the coolant circuit, there are some posts on here about that.
Face the car uphill and let run with the radiator cap removed, also turn on the cabin heater to ensure the coolant runs through the complete circuit.
Maybe the radiator is old, restricted or damaged??

90ºc

Maybe the fan clutch is failing? Other than that I'm out of ideas.

I probably still have a copy of them. I know I downloaded and printed the entire first post before I attempted my swap and I'll probably still have everything. I'll check when I get home tonight.

is there any benefit of getting the ECU re programmed for the M15a or can I get a cruze or swift ecu that will give a little more grunt from the bigger motor?

No need to swap or re program the ecu for a 1.5.
I run the 1.8 on the Jimny ECU, had it in for almost 6 years, I've done a few teaks along the way to my inlet and exhaust and it runs sweet. I've looked into a re program but the cost outweighs the benefit in my opinion. If however, you have money to burn, please don't let me stop you :wink:

Great thread and it has given me the confidence to undertake the conversion in my 2001 m13a non vvt to m15a non vvt. So i thought i would add some info to the thread from my swap.
I purchased a 02 holden cruze for $300 and removed the engine and scraped the rest, wreckers were asking $990 for the engine locally which I felt was way to much so a complete car was the best way to source it.
Basically did the swap by myself over 4 days. Was easy enough just need patience to figure it out, something I lack at times. I used the injectors from the m15a and all else was just swapped over from the m13a. The injectors were longer for the m15a so I had no choice. I will swap the intake manifold over at a later date but just wanted to use everything that I knew already worked on the Jimny. The m13a was running rough at times (sometimes on 3 cylinders) and also had the engine light on constantly. No more engine light on and the engine is running really well, glad I did the swap. thanks again to everyone that has added info it definitly helps
