  1. The KLG4 and the KLDE both have oval intake runners. The only ones that are square are on the KLZE and apparently some of the the 2.5s in the Millenia have them too ^^ ..... I cant confirm this though, so my advice would be if you are gonna get a KLG4 intake manifold make sure its from a 98 or up 626 then you know for sure what you are getting. Also just an fyi the intake manifold swap is one of those "im almost out of basic things to do" mods, its not gonna be super amazing like everyone makes it out to be. Yeah it will give you a little more power, but start off basic with intake exhaust hea
  2. The front of the faces are indeed white, but the back of the faces has a green film on it. It might not look like it even if you do look at the back because the green is covered by a white as well lol. But sand off the white on the back of the faces and then you will find a green layer on. After you sand that off it is going to be actual white. The reason they put the white on top of the green is because it reduces the ghosting effect since there are only four bulbs that light all of the gauge faces and needles. It is like that on most cars. my 07 ford fusion had the same thing. Back of the fa
  3. Just an FYI you can remove the faces of the gauges and swap em out. its pretty easy to do you just have to rip the cluster apart, pull the needles off carefully but be especially careful on the ones for fuel and temp! there are small plastic bumps on the gauge face that make it so the needles can only go so far and if you break it they will be all out of whack. After you get the needles off you have to get the gauge faces off by breaking the small plastic welds that hold them on. they are at the corners. And while you are back there you can sand off the green overlay that is on the back of the
  4. Yeah things go differently depending on what region you are talking about, almost enough to drive one mad.... US vs Jap vs Euro is a whole nother kinda beast...... As far as the question about ZE cams in a G4.. I have no solid answer for ya, the main issue I can see is the fact that the G4 uses a coil pack which is fine and dandy, but the ZE uses a standard disty and has a gear on the camshafts them selves to run the disty. I have no clue what the ramifications would be, maybe you can just remove the end part of said cam (the gear is on the camshaft closest to the front of the car as far as
  5. Still cant find if just the injectors will fit, but like MonoxideChild said the injectors will fit our rail so thats most likely the best option. But wow that MSD switch is a much better option!! didnt even know it existed so thanks a bunch!!!!! From what I can gather you need two of em.. one for each VRIS point... Anyone have em so we can verify that?
  6. yeah I was just talking the injectors... Seems like a dec upgrade. I've never heard of the msd switch so that's why I didn't mention it...
  7. Yeah there are differences between the manifolds. The G4 is the best flowing manifold that has an EGR valve. VRIS is a little different in the G4 but it should work with a DE just fine. I have a G4 and am just going to port it and add pheno spacers... If you have a G4 I really don't think its worth the money and time involved to get it going the "right" way. (You really should port match it so you are not going from a rectangle to an oval..) Also there IS a device that is not made anymore that allows you to adjust the VRIS points... So if you are running a mixture of parts you can do a dyno r
  8. That is great to hear that there are actual dyno plots! I may have to track the thread down and post a link.. So the DE has better valves and springs?? I have never heard that, but a good bit of info to add to the thread. I really want to put as much solid info I can find into the thread. There are just way too many rumors floating around about the KL series in general, so it makes it super hard to find more info that is fact! I am currently looking into the Milly motors... once I sort through all the stuff and find good solid info ill be sure to post it up. If I posted all the info ive found
  9. yup the two a spec motor specs where verified via http://www.internetautoguide.com/index.html it's a good un bias souce for that info
  10. Ah I completely forgot about the Millenia!! Well now I have another bit of searching to do. Not sure why but whenever I think of the Millenia I always think of the 2.3 Miller cycle.... love the way that motor sounds! Speaking of the Millenia S im pretty sure we can use the fuel rails off of em... Could be a cheap injector upgrade if one was at a junk yard. Oh and I updated the info, thanks for the help
  11. KLDE vs KLG4 vs KLZE Hi all new to the forums but have been doing research for quite a while. I have learned quite a bit through the various forums such as www.mx6.com www.probetalk.com and this very site. I would like to thank anyone that posts more info to this thread!! I will update all info to this first post to keep things simple to find. I have noticed a general trend that many of us are confused about our motors and what differences there are from year to year, j-spec ect. (I know I was!!) My goal here is to list basic specs for the three KL variations, differences between each one, a
  12. yeah that makes sense. The crack in the gasket was bad enough but when the rod bent it sounded bad and that was the end of the motor. I'm sure the over heating didn't help lol
  13. I do know for a fact that the weak part in the kl is the rods... and if you push it too hard or get it too hot they will bend. Hopefully that didnt happen to you, but from the noises you described it very well could have. At that point its usually cheaper to buy a used engine than to rebuild it. Happened to me with the 626 I had before the one I have now! (head gasket cracked so overheated and rod bent) In general the two worst things you can do when your car is overheating is keep driving it, OR shutting it off. Keep driving it and it keeps making heat. Shut the car off and the cooling system
  14. Hi all I just bought a used 98 626 LX V6 with an atx. About four years ago I had an ES V6 with a manual and I really miss it! Does anyone know how much it would cost to do a swap? any info on where I could get the parts/kit would be great! Also any idea how much it should cost to get the swap done? I do have friends with way modded subies (only thing stock is the block) and they do all their own work so im sure I could get one of them to help me out if its a ton of $$ Any help is greatly appreciated!
