    Lump Change

    Is it possible to put a 1.6 16v in to a G that has a 1.6 8v in, and if so is there an awful lot that would need changing ?.
    I may have the option of getting one real cheap in a couple of months and need to start thinking about it.

    Cheers peeps.

    If you get everything with the engine then I dont really see a problem, but your best to see what someone with the mechanical expertise to say so
