1. What To Expect If You Plan On Doing An Engine Swap

Swapping an engine is a big project, but it’s so worth it in the end. That is, if you do it right. It’s important to have realistic expectations about what such a large project would entail. Alex from Fitment Industries sat down and went over the nitty gritty of swapping an engine.

The colorful language aside, Alex delivers the harsh truth about swapping an engine. The takeaway? It’s not for the faint of heart. If you want to pull off a successful project, you need to know what you’re doing. That means pairing the right car and the right engine. Not sure if you can handle swapping an engine? Watch the video!

The comments are as entertaining as the video. Here are a few of our favorites:

“An engine swap is about 9 months of ‘Why did I do this? This was a terrible choice.” but then it turns into ‘This is the best thing I’ve ever done.’ It’s basically like having kids.”

“Just put a diesel engine in my Tesla and it’s running great.”

Me: “I really want to swap my engine”

Wallet: “Do you really?”

Me: “iT’s nEceSsARy.”


2. Beginner Vs Pro: Pulling An Engine

Have you ever wanted to watch a beginner pull an engine from a car? Now you can! James is a total novice who’s totally willing to take on the daunting task of pulling an old motor out of a mid-80s Toyota AE86 Corolla. Pulling an engine is challenging enough on its own. Yet, there’s another challenge James has to overcome: get it done in only two days!

Who’s the pro in this video? Zack from Donut Media. He has swapped a few engines in the past. He stands by and guides James through the entire process. He also takes the time to thoroughly explain the process to us. This video isn’t only incredibly entertaining, but it’s also very educational.

Spoiler: James manages to pull the engine out of the car with no major issues… with a lot of help from the pro. They eventually put in a new motor. Watch the video here.
