    Question New vs Old engines?

    Just bought an X reg 1.8CDX and it suddenly occurred to me that it is the same size engine as my old Mk1 GTE!!

    Any ideas how the two engines compare - given that they're 30 odd years apart?!

    This is just idle curiosity by the way!

    Cheers,
    Gaz

    Didn't think they would be - I was just curious as to how they differ.
