I have a 1.3sr nova. I want to put a 1.6 16v (c16xe) engine in.
Im new to the site and never done n e thing like this beofre. I was after some help with the following and anything else that any one feels i should know before going ahead with it.
Firstly some one offered me a 1.6 16v eninge for £250, they said it was a red top out of the gsi cavalier. Could anyone confirm that is a c16xe?
with this engine will i need a new gear box, drive shafts or engine mounts?
I spoken to some one who did the same conversion to a 1.2 nova spin and he said in a weekend i should have the old engine out and new one in and u use the existing gear box and mounts. but others have said that is crazy and there is a lot of work involved.
id appreachate any help with this and as i cant afford a throttle body kit as yet does any one know of any twin 40s being sold for the engine, and will i need a new inlet manifold to run twin 40s?
Id also be interested in any other nova parts, such as roll cage, strut brase etc.
