Engine swaps

Post by Kimmie »

Hi all. I currently have a 206cc allure 2.0 s16 and was wondering if it is possible to fit the engine from the 206gti.
Is there a difference? It would be taking it from 140hp to 180hp if its possible.

What i was wondering is this.....Are there differences with injectors/ecu/manifolds etc.

Is this actually possible?

I would assume that the main block would be the same but does anyone else know what else would need changing.

If it's the GTI 180 engine then yes it would take it to 180 but most 206 GTI engines are the same as you have.

AFAIK the head/manifolds/ECU/Injectors are all different and the block possibly (thinking piston shape). The exhaust has differences .. and gearbox possibly. Being a later model it will be multiplex and earlier 206CCs wouldn't be .. so you'd have electric issues .. big, expensive ones as the GTI 180 loom and ecu wouldn't expect a folding roof for one!

Anything's possible .. depends on your skills and depth of your wallet.

If you want a 180 hp engine, just drop an 180 engine and gearbox in .. you probably won't get a 140 to 180 without spending a lot more ...

I would have suggested asking on 206info.co.uk .. but the site is down .. and could be no-one has paid the website hosting bill!! It would all have been on there ..
