Brake calipers interchangeable

For virtually every vehicle the answer is no. The reason being is, there is a front and rear bias as far as braking goes. The front end has (in every vehicle I've ever dealt with) larger diameter ...

Are bucket shims for mainstream Japanese cars interchangable?

Can R-410A refrigerant be substituted for R-134A in cars?

Only in vehicles which are specifically designed for it and I believe there are none currently in existence. Automobiles today use R134a and in the (distant) past they used R12. But no, you cannot ...

Can a 97 f150 4.6 motor be swapped onto 2001 f150 4.6 triton body

I would suspect the engine long block would fit just fine (physically), but you'd need to change over the entire wiring harness, coils, manifolds, and all electronic bits/pieces. So physically it ...

I have question about my Bmw 325I 1995

This answer depends on the specific part. I used to have a '94 318is and from what I remember a lot of the parts were identical across the whole 3-series line. Your best bet is looking up the part ...

Is a 2002 Nissan Pathfinder Rear window center mount stop light compatible with a 2011 Nissan Pathfinder silver edition stop light?

No. The 2002 Pathfinder is a 2nd generation, while the 2011 is a 3rd generation. The 3rd brake lights won't swap over.

Engine swapping / ECU swapping

Just guessing with a conservative opinion as ECUs aren't universal when switching engine displacement and adding turbocharging. A stock 2.0L without a turbo is naturally aspirated/vacuum mode; intake ...

Will a 2008 g35 w/auto go in 2006 g35

Physically it would fit, but you'd either have to have your ECU tuned for the new engine or use the ECU out of the 2008. Depending on what type of G35 it came out of, it has different HP/TQ levels. ...

Would a Kawasaki Z900 exhaust fit on a Kawasaki Z250sl?

With a welder, materials, and know how, anything is possible. I'm assuming you are looking for a "slip on" application. If so, this is not the part for you. The Z900 is a 4-cylinder inline ...

I have a 2000 Jetta 1.8t. can I use a computer from a 2018 Jetta 1.8 t? And if so are the tunes different?

If my sources are right, the only electronic control modules you might be able to use are ones for 2000 or 2001 Jetta (PN: 06A 906 018 ET). It appears VW used the same one for the different engines (...

Do cross referenced parts imply an older vs newer design?

Yes. Parts can have different part numbers and still work exactly the same. OEM as well as aftermarket manufacturers do this, but who really knows why. Sometimes it's because the part itself has been ...
