    1.4 NV Engine Help??

    Car: nova 1.4 sr h reg
    Engine: 14 nv, 02k94653
    Gearbox: f10 gearbox
    78000 miles

    engine: 14NV, 1900407 from mk2 astra f10 gearbox 55000 miles

    as some of you will know i put a mk2 astra engine in my nova a few months ago, ive just got a mk2 nova sr 1.4 and when the lad who had it b4 raced me he **** all over me so wot r the differences between the sr and the engine ive got in mine at the mo? also ive got 15" wheels and this sr has 14" mine is lowered the sr isnt. will the sr gearbox be a CR one? it dont say on the box itself. the carb is the same on both engines im just tryin to figure out why the sr is quicker and is it worth swappin engines again.

    DAN

    yep its down to the CR box on the Nova thats why he p*ssed all over you, swap your WR box for a CR box then you'll be down to who's the better driver.


    was just thinking - was the NV & NZ engine's not the single point injection engine? if so it has the sh*t head on it, think you might be best with a 1.4 SE or a C1.4 SE head.

    top speed doesn't really bother me its just the acceleration that needs to be good
