Hey guys i'm really nervous about this 1.6 engine swap. i'm not worried about getting the engine into the car, i'm worried about getting it running.
I've been reading my haynes manual and from what i read the 14XE and 16XEL may actually have the SAME ECU???
If anyone could shine some light on this? would the ECU from my 14XE work with my new 16XEL?
Seems a pretty weird question i know but i can't find any evidence to say i'm wrong!
If not assasin offered me a Corsa GSi ECU/Transponder/Pickup. I've noticed that the corsa GSi is the C16XE and the astra 1.6 is X16XEL is the ECU compatible? Also i've noticed the astra 1.6 gets its peak torque at 3200 rpm as opposed to my engines being 4000 rpm. I would prefer the lower revs torque curve.
I get the feeling with the corsa GSi being a lighter car and the engine putting out 109hp (10hp more than X16XEL) that the torque curve wouldn't be as good as the standard astra 16XEL one.
Any help appreciated
