  • Pick a part, 2005 rio’s w/ b6’s

    I’ve came across 2 2005 Kia rio’s with the b6 engines at my local pick a part, as far as I know that was the last year the b6 was put in them. I’ve been Rollin around the b6 swap idea for a little while. As well as other upgrades for my completely stock festiva.

    I just haven’t seen anywhere on here that swap done from a rio, should be the same as any other b6, no?
    A swap should be a piece of cake for me I’m just kinda new to the festiva

    thought I’d put this out there, any thoughts advice

    I have asked about this before and the answer that I remember was that since the Rios are newer and are probably on a Can-Bus system you would have to swap over the majority of the wiring and computers. Most of the other B6 swaps just require a few extra wires and the swapped ecm.

      Dang, I was kinda wondering if it being newer n all would be an issue,
