Yeah I've done a lot of reading on the 2013 models and how they're cursed.
For you there shouldn't be a problem with the swap at all. I'd get the ECM from the donor motor just in case if it's available.

The Cavy finally died when it was rear ended by a lady texting and 6 months later one of the cam journals decided to go.
I really miss that car and was my ultimate build I've ever done. So much work and 2 years on jack stands to build it.
But man that car was the bomb. NOBODY wanted to race me because of how the car looked and sounded when it was done. HPTuners worked wonders on the midrange and won many street races with it.

I feel the soul of the Cavy is now in this Hyundai Accent as it will be turbocharged and making a minimum of 300 who if not more.
My ultimate sleeper because nobody would expect an Accent to gap them on the highway.
Im keeping it simpler with this build too as all of the bespoke parts that were on the Cavalier couldn't be replaced so I learned to keep it simple but durable and unbreakable.

You plan on doing anything to the engine on yours?
Got a build thread? Send me a link and I'll follow it. 馃憤馃槑

Btw got some nice goodies on the way to the house. 馃檶
I'm so pumped. 馃槏
