    mk4 engines

    My cambelt has recently gone on my 1.6 16v and im looking to change the engine in it this weekend, i have been offered a mk4 1.8 sri engine for next to nothing and was wondering will it just go straight in or will i have to mess about and buy other things?

    thanks

    it will drop straight in mate, not sure about the wiring looms though, someone will be able to tell you the electical side of things

    i heard that the 1.6 and 1.8 engines are the same blocks, just the 1.8 is bored out for a bit more power
