its not worth it dude, you'll lose your Power steering, and the aircon, and they might cut the fire wall to get it in................ best thing to do is re-bore your motor to an 1800cc and dont worry about changing engine numbers and losing the luxuries:) if you in durban I can send you somewhere:) Later


You can put in the Ecotech motor without losing your aircon & power steering, just depends on how good you mechanic is or how good you are! You need..... * Motor * Inner & outer CV's * Fuel management (standalone) * Gearbox * 2 engine mounts have to change & 1 gearbox mounting has to change. Have the mounting made from polyurethane, although they give off more vibration they do last a lot longer. Hope this helps
