What sort of increase will it give etc

Is it a stright swap or do you have to mix and match parts.

Got to do the head on the 16v so might give this a go at the same time :) .

cheers for any info.

A good increase :P It will be just like a willy lump exept the 1.8 head has different porting ever so slightly. You will gain plenty of torque :evil:

easiest/most common is to fit your 1.8 head to the meg block. straight forward enough if u can use a spanner

So you just need the bottom end and all the gear box and drive shafts just bolt stright in then ??

Yup, basically, and the best part is it looks the same, so insurance is cheaper ;)

What ecu do you need if you put the meggy bottom in with the 1.8 head? Im guessing it will run a little different :?
