    1.4 16v Into a 1.6 8v Any problem ?

    hi there,

    i was thinking of putting a 1.4 16v engine into my car as it would be the cheaper option than changing it would this be a problem or just a straight swap ? let me know your thoughts

    Thought you were going to fix the problem for your current engine?
    Might be cheaper just to repair your engine depending on the problem.
