    they are pretty much exactly the same so obviously fit.

    where are you based?

    be worth the money though id imagine, 1.4 is terribly slow 140 bhp with turbo conversion is possible which wouldnt be bad

    Why not just sell up and buy a 2.0T SRi? There are loads about and it would probably work out cheaper overall.

    you would be better off fitting a z20lel/z20ler or z20leh as you could but it in a package with everything you need for around £2500 fitting will be around £1000 depending on what spec you want and what you egt with it,you will also need bigger brakes
