    Engine conversion qs?

    Will a 1.8 16v fit straight into a 1.6 8v? And will i need a new gearbox? Cheers Andy

    you will need things like the ECU and wiring loom from a 1.8 16v but the block itself should fit in relatively simple. For the extra power gain is it worth all the effort though?
    Any info on V6 MK4 conversions greatly appreciated!

    Just a thought aren't the 1.6 8v lumps the only one of the few with a real throttle cable? and the 1.8s are flyby wire. Unless you got a 1.8 out of an early 1.8 sport mk4
