    Conversion

    Right guys, no doubt I'll get slated as I can imagine this kind of post has been up thousaaands of times...

    Basically.. I'm sporting a Z16XE SXi with an engine of which is slowly dieing.... Soo, instead of replacing the 1.6 as I'd like a bit more go, I was thinking of going 2litre, now the z20let would be a dream for me! However, with the costs of fuel etc plus buying the conversion kit would kill me so I was thinking of going x20xev... What will I need? I know most are going to tell me to buy a bigger engined car, but I'd rather drive something that I've built not bought..

    Just basically need a bit of advice, as in will I have to strip out the interior loom and replace, will the shafts fit my 4 stud hubs? (as I don't want to change my wheels and I've bought a 4 stud brake disc kit for the rear) and more or less, just what do I need?

    Thanks in advance

    Like you said people will just say buy a whole new car.
    Someone did an auto-bio on this recently which is very interesting. I'll get a link. Hopefully they don't mind...

    if your bothered about fuel then stick with a 1.6
    the 2.0 is only going to be marginally better on fuel than a zlet.

    you could go for a z18xe,123hp and just as fast as the 2.0,it has the same 0-60 as the 2.0 and is only 2mph slower in top speed
