    Was it off a 1.8 coupe or a 2.0 Turbo?

    2.0 Turbo ones shud be fine as kebt weights are roughly the same.. if they are off a 1.8 they wont be stiff enough

    Mmm... not sure. 2.2 i imagine would be a fairly heavy engine.

    If you go onto parkers (www.parkers.co.uk) and check the kerb weights. If they are near enough the same you should be OK.

    Hope this helps
