Engine, FI and Auto swap stripping the RRC donor

Alright been doing my research and it looks like this is what I need to strip off the RRC donor

Engine and ancillaries
Transmission
Tranny Cooler
Fuel pump
ECU
Engine Wiring to ECU and on motor
LT230(have this in the garage)
Emissions parts
Shifter Assembly


What am I missing?

------ Follow up post added December 26th, 2012 10:58 PM ------

Just to add I'm starting to strip the RRC on the 7th of Jan. Hoping to have that done in 3 days or so and be able to start putting the 110 together shortly after that. I miss driving it, the Saab isn't as cool.

Fuel lines. Tank. Evap crap.

What year is it? You can get good money for a working seat ECU and some other random bits.

From my reading I thought you could put the pump in the stock 110 tank.

I can grab the tank to easy. Is that possible to swap the RRC tank into the 110 or is that a nightmare/bad idea?

Evap crap got it.

I was planning on plumbing into the existing fuel lines unless there is a good reason not to or this approach doesn't work of course. Thoughts?

It's a 91 I'll be selling a few bits off it that I'm not scavenging for the project or other probably bad ideas floating around in my head lol. I should have a clean upper gate for sale and some OME 3" springs. The shocks on it are good OME so I'll probably put those on the 110 to replace the factory ones, until funds allow for all new ones.

91 with a metal tank you want to swap in the whole metal tank out of the RRC. The 110 tanks are the same size, but have different fittings so you would have to make that work if you use the 110 tank. If it is plastic, Pendy has a way to mount that to a 110, but I am not familiar.

On fuel lines, it depends on whether you have two lines and they have the right fittings. I would make sure to grab the lines to have more stuff to make it more likely to make it work. For example, I am 99% sure that the connections at the carb are different than the EFI and the same holds true for the ones at the pump. Unless you have budgeted $500+ for a set of NAS110 fuel lines, I would scavenge the RRC ones.

PS I have never done the conversion myself, but I have taken apart a couple NAS 110s and a couple RRCs.

I would also grab the y-pipe

Pretty sure it has a plastic tank if memory serves. I'll pm Pendy and see what his thoughts are. I'm not real interested in spending $500 on a NAS fuel line set, I would be inclined to skip the fuel injection at that point, for the time being.

Why? It is too wide to fit in a defender.

Is the ac compressor a sanden? Could be used as a good oba compressor if it is.

I'm planning on keeping the compressor, either for OBA, or if I can sort it all out I have a complete rear heat/ac unit out of a conversion van I might plumb in for poor man A/C.

Radiator I don't think would fit, and I have a brand new radiator in the garage for the 110.
