View Full Version : Which sr do I have?

07-11-2013, 06:59 AM
Forgive me if this is noobish but the attached image is a pic of my sr swap currently struggling with wiring issues. Anywho correct me if I'm wrong but is this not a s14 blacktop? I ordered a s13 red top. they sent me this. Has j4 ecu which has a sticker on it saying must be e5.

S13 blacktop?

well, it's got an s13 blacktop head, definitely not an s14. Whether it's originally a chuki or kouki s13, dunno. J4 ecu for kouki and e5 for chuki.

The FUCK did you just say??? Please clarify, using English.

Looks to be a Red top s13 sr20det painted black, I can't see if the block has the fins on it, if it does then it is a black top sr20det

J4 ECU is for the Kouki S13 SR20 and is probably why you are having issues. Find an SR20 ECU wit either E4,E5, 62,63, any of those will work with a non Kouki S13 SR20.

This is assuming you have a harness that is wired for a non Kouki S13 SR with a J4/J5 ECU.

I don't see fins- looks like a redtop head w/black valve cover as stated above.

Check the O2 sensor- If it's fat and has 3 wires (?) then it's a blacktop... If think with either one or two wires, then it's a redtop.

Either way, I don't think that J4 ECU is the right one for you.

Blacktop ecu =e5
Redtop ecu =63

Yeah I have 3 going to the o2

And there are fins on the front of the head so is this ecu and harness the right one for me?

If theres fins on the head its a blacktop, you'll need a e5 ecu and harness to match it

^^Not necessarily. If it's a Koui blacktop, the J4 ECU will run it fine.

May be worth a call to these guys. Yury knows his stuff & may know how you can tell whether or not your ECU is correct for your harness & motorset...

I so wish I could afford that. I'm gonna see if I can't do the wiring before I result to that. My head is about to explode over this.

Any Tennessee guys out there willing to help out?

He said call em and ask for help not buy the harnesses...

Some redtops in 1991-1992 got the fins on the head.

The ECU has to match the harness- not the engine.

IF it runs on all four cylinders and it has a E5 or 62 ecu then the harness is from a 1989-1996 S13 engine.
Sometime around 97-98 they start making the J4 ecu, for the S13 blacktop engine. The harness is slightly different. IF you google "J4 to 62" I did a write up about how to convert the harness over.
