Is the 156, 147 etc 1.8 16v engine the same as the 155 engine? As I am looking for an engine for my 155 and I need a 16V 1.8.

Thanks
Thomas

no ;) and yes , they have slight differences it depends if u want the whole lot? id say the block is the same but throttle bodies are different and i think one or two oilways and sensors are in diff places but essentially the same head as well . hopefully you will get a better answer from someone soon :eek: but there is a breaker in liverpool with a 2ltr 155 engine hes on ebay 0151 928 ..... im unsure of its condition though :rolleyes:

So if I bought a 156 1.8 16V withought the ECU, etc would I be able to use it in my car?

Thanks

I'm fairly sure that's a yes.
Obviously change thermostat housing, change the manifolds and blank off the EGR, but otherwise should be ok.
That's not from experience of swapping, but I can't remember anything different right now...
