1.6- 1.8

I think the gearboxes are the same, but the 1.8 has slightly longer ratios!

 

Clutch may well need to be a 1.8 version. Flywheels the same? I'm not sure to be honest, I know of a aluminium flywheel which fits the 1.8 and 2.0L zetec-e, but doesn't mention the 1.6

 

Maybe the 1.6 is different (lighter) than the 1.8 / 2.0. Would this affect clutch fitting?

 

Hope these can be oversome easily enough :thumb:

 

tis just the thoughts I had :)

 

EDIT: Give ya a hand with this aswell if u ain't paying a garage to do the lot! :cheers:

Not sure how mine was done, was already converted to 1800 when i got it, All ive had done is a 130 spec cylinder head skimmed and refitted and 130 ancilleries.

 

Which proves its possible to convert it, mine started live as a Mk6 mexico, tho it bears little resemblence to one now mechanically lol.

 

eeeer.... 8o i didnt understand much of that at all

 

i still think this is another case of dunky love....  :rolleyes:  :innocent:

 

:innocent:
