    2000 1.4 to z18xe

    doing this change in easter week, will be doing the work myself with a few mates,can somebody list the things i need to buy/do to do this. also, can i keep my 1.4 gearbox? i understand that it wont be as fast top-end but it should make it quicker shouldnt it?

    do i have to change the full loom or can it be adapted? and can i just take the ecu out of the same car that the engine came out of?

    thanks

    a f13 gearbox wouldnt last to long on a 1.8 as they aint the strongest of gearboxes. would be better with a f17 close ratio but i think they come on the 1.8s anyway

    Is your 1.4 a z14 or x14????

    Just that I'm considering a similar swap - but mines a 1.6 (z16xe), and started a thread here:

    I know the 1.4 and 1.6 z engines are very similar and it now seems that the 1.8 fits the bill too. I presume they are basically the same engine but with different bore sizes - I would imagine all mounting points are the same too????

    I think I'd use a 1.8 radiator and alternator (and perhaps a few other externals) though!
