I hope this forum isn’t completely dead yet since I only found it yesterday and man do I have some questions. I am planning (as the title might suggest) to swap my sirion with a K3-VET engine. Because it will be my first engine swap I’m not able to rely on my own knowledge. I hope that some of you are willing to discuss and answer my questions
I already know that the K3 engine will fit since the sirion m300 already has a K3 just without the turbo. I already know that I need tot change the timing belt cover so get some more room but I don’t know how to run the engine. Getting a aftermarket ECU and let it tune by someone would be the obvious answer but I’m not willing (and lacking the funds) to pay 3000+ euros just for a small computer to run the engine. For comparison: I can buy a sirion m300 and a yrv turbo for the same price as just the aftermarket ECU.
Is it possible to swap the enige and use the original ecu of the Yrv to run the engine in a m300? Since the Yrv turbo will be an auto and the sirion a manual I’m afraid that the ecu will not like it.
Or is it a possibility to reprogram the ECU of the m300 to work with a turbo?
Even if you don’t know the answers to these questions I would still be happy to talk to some Daihatsu enthousiast
