1.6 TS Engine Swap - Advise / recomendation
Engine of my 147 2002 TS went off, oil passes to Cylinders, white smoke out of exhaust and i'm about to Swap it.
Need advise about the 2 Engines, the Seller said both have almost similar mileage (50K miles) :
- 1.8 TS, 2001 Make
- 1.6 TS, 2005 Make
Can't tell from outer look which of them is better, The Seller recommends 1.8 but i'm more into the newer 1.6 one, just because it's newer !
Do i need to worry about installing a newer Engine (2005) than my Car's ECU (2002)?
Also is it recommended to install the Engine's gear ; or My GearBox should work for with no noticeable difference.
I'd be thankful for any recommendation for things i need to check for before buying any, since i think it's not possible to test any without real installation.
