Its not just the clutch that's different - although it is - GTV has external slave cylinder, 156 has internal slave cylinder - but the gear selector mechanisms are different too - the GTV has a rod mechanism whereas the 156 is a cable mechanism.

Engines will swap, no problem, if you use the 156s inlet and exhaust manifolds...though a 1.6 ECU might not run a 2.0 perfectly. It should work, though.

Is the gear plate on the gearbox different or is it just the rods instead of cables and is it not possible to swap the plate over if there is a difference?
