    Hello,
    it took me almost two month but finally finished.
    I've installed a 3SZ-VE (1500cc) from a Terios into the copen 1.3 chassis.
    Original engine was K3-VE (1300cc).
    Now the copen has a healty 107HP. Getting moving and accelerating faster!
    Driving fun really increased significantly.
    This modification is not an easy swap. New engine block has an almost identical cast iron base, but it's height is + 2.5cm. Valve ports are bigger also, so better performance.
    A list of adjustments:
    Servo pump bracket from other origin
    Airco compressor bracket alu from other origin
    Calatysator bracket 1.3 + mm
    Coupling 1.5 Terios
    Coupling cable 1.3 +mm
    Coupling lever/cable
    Carter + oil pump suction 1.3
    Distribution chain cover 1.5
    Pulleys 1.3
    Flywheel 1.3
    Alternator belt tensioner from other car
    Thermostat housing 1.3
    Oil filter housing 1.3
    Motor supports 1.3
    Transmission 1.3
    Subframe lowered 10mm to be ablo to close the hood
    Front spring + 8mm, kidney flange to compensate Mini Rims
    Front spring + 6mm, piston under bearing to compensate lowered subframe
    Exhaust and cataliser 1.3 fits.
    Exhaust bushing +20mm to compensate higher engine block
    Air intake YRV turbo, this fits 1.5 trottle valve
    K&N air filter + housing (surplus)
    Engine bay cables 1.3
    All sensors 1.3
    ECU (+ABS!) 1.3
    Cooling water hoses 180° and 90° new silicone
    Fluel pressure regulator 1.3
    Oil filling cap 1.3 because it is lower

    Next step: chiptuning.
