GTV engine code help
Can someone help with my engine code problem Im having.
Basically, my GTV at some point has had its engine changed, the original was a CF1 type with the alloy rocker cover. The one I currently have has got the plastic rocker cover. But it still has (what I can see) the original inlet manifold and the exhaust, and a few other bits, e.g thermostat, etc.
So, I wanted to double check this, so I went and looked at the V5 and my engine code is - 106***9, 7 digits. I went and looked at the current engine I have, and (correct if wrong) I went and dug around for the engine code stamped on the block, and Im not sure if I got the right one. This code was stamped just above the exhaust manifold, on the far right side of the block if you are stood looking at the engine from the front. And it was also 8 digits long, as apposed to 7 on the V5.
Have I got the right code? And is there much point in changing the V5 to this current one?
Also, I am considering looking for a CF1 engine, rebuilding it, and putting that one in as it seems more original to me. Any thoughts on this?
