I am thinking of replacing the 1.2 carbed engine in my nova with a 1.4 engine out of a SR.
Im doing this because it should be a quick and easy swap (both carbed engines, no ECU or extra wiring to fit, my fuel tank etc is all compatible), should be cheap, and insurance will hardly change.
I will be modifying this new engine though and cleaning it all up and give it a good going over so its mint. My plans to mod it are:
1.2 head, 1.3 inlet manifold, weber 32/34 carb, GTE exhaust manifold and downpipe, janspeed exhaust system. Is there anything else I could look at doing to this engine? cam maybe? anything else out of other vauxhall engines worth fitting?
Any help would be great because I've not done an engine conversion before.
Also what gearbox is on the 1.4sr engine? is it a close ratio sports one?
