    Talking 2.2 conversion from z18

    I love the 1.8 its great especialy the fuel I dont use much yet keep smiling.
    I get from Hwest in the deepest part of south wales to home in wakefield and only use half a tank. fantastic.

    Would I notice drammatically higher fuel useage from the 2.2 (ZSE)
    I would realy like to know if also can the M32 6spd be mated to the zse.
    A zse coupe with a 6spd box for motorway cruising. sounds great and all the lower gears to attack brecon with.

    do i need to change the dash loom or just the ancillary loom and ecu.
    Brakes are an obvious change as i will need bigger disks and calipers. anything else
    So Far ZLEH, M32, FMIC, Top Hat, CDTi box, Thermobolic intake gasket, De cat, alloy rad, GSi bumper, Coilovers not long off a map now lol

    i don't know about the fuel or m32.

    you won't have to change the dash loom, you will have to change the ancilary loom & ecu and possibly the engine bay loom.

    you will need the gearstick if you fit the 2.2 with the f23 box as the f23 has cable linkages and the f17 is a pole. again i don't know about the m32.

    your brakes might be the same as the standard 2.2 brakes the 2.2 has 280mm discs up front and 264mm discs at the back.

    you might need the ends of the fuel lines.
    you will need the engine mounts.

    it might work out cheaper and easier to buy a written off 2.2 and use the engine from that, plus any parts you need you already have. and whats left over can be sold on
