did you change the engine ecu? if not then your computer is still trying to control a 1.8 so the fuel delivery will be wrong, the fuel/air mix will be wrong and the car will generally run like a piece of shit.

your welcome and have a helpful mark for marking me the best answer, ya know, to get you on your way.


Why i didn't think that it will be the ecu is the fact that there is an oxygen sensor that will the air fuel mixture.


*That will control the air fuel mixture.
