Re: difference in engines

Yes you can. The 2.0 im the 147 156 gtv etc are the same. The only difference you will fine is manifolds will be different. So make sure you keep yours.

Re: difference in engines

another thought, will a 2 litre t spark selespeed engine be the same from a 156 with tiptronic gear box, i think the difference with an auto would be swap the fly wheels over for the manual box?

Re: difference in engines

make sure you get one that is around the same age as your car. After 2001 the throttle body is flyby wire.

Re: difference in engines

I put a cf2 2.0ts engine in to my cf3 2.0ts sellespeed and had no problems as it is the same engine. The only differences are the exhaust system and obviously the gearbox. So if it is just the engine you need you will have no problems. So keep your old exhaust etc and you will be fine.

Re: difference in engines

There are internal differences between CF2 & CF3 engines, but nothing that causes an issue swapping them over.
Just swap any different external bits as already mentioned.
Yes you can use the engine from a Selespeed.

Selespeed is not an automatic.
So it has a std flywheel.
