Hey fellow members, I just finished my GS to GT swap (4g69 to 6g75 mivec)this week on my 4g, and thought I'd share some information here, for anyone looking to swap motors into their 3g eclipse. I know many non mivec swaps have been done, and only one documented mivec swap done by Silverside, so in addition to those threads on here, I'll like to contribute mine as well. This is not a "How to" by any means, more of just sharing information and pics that might be helpful.
