    I didnt know,
    So theres your answer lmao, Seen as it is a small block it will fit, What you doing fitting a corsa inlet (Mantzel Style) powerbox? Ive heard of a couple of people doing this with 1.8's but i dont know what gains are to be had from doing it

    It's possible, but there is an awful lot of working involved, mainly running a Fuel pressure regulater valve and return line back to the tank

    The inlet manifold on ZXE series engines are the same from 1.4 all the way to 1.8

    Its won't fit as the ports and mounting holes are different on the Z18XE.

    Sorry to bring this thread up again, but would it be possible to do the opposite? For example x18 top bit on an x16 lower?
