Whats up everyone, i'm new to the forum, but not to the z24's. I owned an 89 z24, and it was one of the fatest rides in my area after i dropped a sh*tload of money into the exterior, but anyways, a wreck and that one was gone. I drove a 97 Mitsubishi Mirage for a while, lowered, system, ect... Then i saw the car i went out and bought. My 94 Z24 five speed. I bought it with one of the lifters collapsed and was gonna fix it. Then I called around to a couple junk yards and found it. An 89 3.1 tgp engine. I bought it with the left over cash from my other car.

Buying this engine left me on a tight budget and i'm going to have to save everything i get and i can hopefully have it in by the end of January. I just got the engine, no ecm or wiring harness, and i have to get an intercooler. The engine is in rough shape.

Now i just have a few questions I didn't know if some of you could answer for me.
1) I dont know if this is true, but i heard that all tgp were automatics, if i put my flywheel and ring gear on the tgp, would that offset the weight of the crankshaft and give me a wobble while i'm driving?
2)Will my coil pack and plug wires work on the tgp? (tgp didn't come with this)
3) Would the the trottle body of my N/A work on the tgp due to the oval vs. the round intake side of tb.

I would greatly appreciate answers to these questions if anyone knows them. I really trying to get the engine preped for swap and plans made. Thanks for you advice.

Yes they were all autos, no you will not experiance any vibrations.

Yes

Yes, but if you plan on using a TGP ECM and PROM you will need to use a 2.8L TB or at least the top plate that the vacuum hoses attach, as the TGP used a vcuum actuated EGR valve.

Sweet another TGP swap! You will love it I am sure. I am looking into getting a conquest intercooler they are fairly inexpensive and the inlet and outlet are both on the driverside. Good luck man be sure to keep us updated.
