Finally Got the Swap Done but now what

After working on other projects for other people I got the SVT trans in the ZX3. The swap was pretty easy but now I have a speed sensor issue. I can get the car up to 110 mph on the speedo which is about 35 to 40 mph. Whats worse is the computer cuts out the motor at 110mph.

Has anyone had this issue? Do I need to get the computer reflashed or is there an easier way around it. The wire harness hooked directly to the speed sensor on the svt trans and the wires were the same color and position on each connector.

sleepyboy The only problem would be the speed sensor, but I think you can get around that but I forgot how. I do know some have done the swap before.

svtguy88 So you're putting the Getrag on a standard ZX3?

As you mentioned, there are two clutch/flywheel designs - pre and post TSB.

Hmm...I'm thinking you will run into some ECU problems once you have the clutch in.

Bradwx After reading several posts.. I get the issue I am having. I bought a PRE-TSB Flywheel. Hopefully the yard will take it back and/or get me the correct one.

SVT Clutch Setup Issue

My first post here. I am new to the SVT world but I want a 6spd car and cannot afford a Mini Cooper S.

Here is the history of the car. I got a 2000 ZX3 with a bad MTX-75 transmission. It was modified before I purchased the car. It has the header pipe and stainless exhaust, SVT rear brake set-up, and lowered suspension. The car has about 117k miles.

The engine and tramission are out and ready to be switched over.

I got a good deal on the SVT swap for the tranmission. It came with the getrag tranmission, shifter cables, shifter, axles, clutch and pressure plate. Since the clutch disc has minimal wear i decided to purchase a flywheel.

The engine and tramission are out and ready to be switched over.

This is where the problem begins. The purchased flywheel seems to be an aftermarket SPEC aluminum flywheel and the LUK disc and pressure plate do not fit. I am almost certain the LUK clutch is correct. The disc is the correct width and fits the input shaft.

Does Anyone know if the SPEC setup uses a smaller clutch disc.

I will try to return the flywheel to the yard I picked it up from and try to get the correct LUK flywheel.
The SPEC flywheel is all aluminum (except the disc surface) and is very light.
