Thread: Beta Swapped Accent

  1. #1

    Default Beta Swapped Accent

    Hey guys, I'm new to elantras and beta engines but I've had my accent for a while now. Anyways, I'm going to be swapping a beta into my accent in the next couple weeks here and need to know a few things about a particular engine.





    My questions are, what type of Beta is this and what year is it out of so that I can pick up the ECU for it.

    And secondly, in the bottom picture, what is missing from that hole there?

    Thanks guys

    That's a Beta2 with CVVT. That hole isn't supposed to be like that and looks like ti was part of the CVVT system, which I don't know well since I don't have that on my car.

    the hole is for cvvt so i guess its from and 2004,5,6 you could search ebay or a salvage yard for the appropriate ecu. But i'm not sure.

    Yeah sorry I forgot to add that. I agree that it's for 2004-2006 elantra. Or 2004-2007 tiburon.

    Okay I was told it was from an 05 with just under 10k on it. I picked it up for $600 which i thought was a killer deal. the guy had been trying to sell it forever so i guess he just wanted to get rid of it.

    does anyone know what that part of the cvvt system is called? I didn't think it was a beta2 since it came with a MAF...

    04+ beta2s went back to the MAF instead of MAP. That hole is for the CVVT solenoid

    What model is your Accent, if you have an X3 that engine won't fit, you'll need a Beta 1, but if you have an LC or LC2 your ok.

    before going into this i would double and triple check you have everything needed to do this swap as you will not be able to finish it with such things as the cvvt solenoid missing. you will in fact need to swap the ecu for this engine to run properly.

    good idea to swap out the harhness and computer....


    you will also need the harhness from that car as well....or you will get CEL's from the CVVT not being hooked up.

    Nice, nice!

    When I get my motor in next week, that's what I'll do.

    What do you have planned for the clean up of the engine? Here's what i was thinking (engine has approx 56k MILES on it)

    - Clean pan (re-seal of course, lol)
    - Change Valve cover gasket (I have a spare)
    - Change timing belt
    - Test injectors
    - Clean block and head, coat block with ceramic paint (probably black) to combat surface rust as much as I can.
    - Do everything I can to relocate electrical wires and whatnot to make it look cleaner
    - Paint every single bracket I can find with 3-4 coats of black engine paint to combat rust

    I have to add... I'm swapping engines but with the same engine, lol, so no custom work like yours.

    You will need a shorter driver's side axel.

    Are you keeping the same tranny? If so I HIGHLY recommend buying the Atelier HP kit for beta swaps with their hybrid clutch kit (since the accent has a push type clutch). Also you may purchase already-modified motor mounts for your application so the engine won't sit all crooked like 70% of the swaps I've seen in the US (all the Quebec guys buy the kit and have perfect swaps ).

    If you are interested Atelier HP is ''Denisst'' over here, send a PM his way and tell him I sent ya

    No i have the Beta clutch and I have the axles all worked out. It's all just about redoing the wiring. which i'm not looking forward to.

    as far as cleaning up the engine, that's all i was going to do, then just run a few cycles of oil through it. it only has about 9500 on it so it doesn't need any work at all.

    So.....that CVVT solenoid, is technically called an oil control valve...and it costs $220

    Do you guys know if an 03 Beta ECU will work and if it will have that missing control valve?

    sorry for all the questions
