1.8 - 2.0 zetec conversion?
got a 1.8 16v zetec at the moment but i have just bought a 2.0 zetec engine for a turbo conversion project. What else will i need to fit it to my car?
I will be using the gearbox i already have or may upgrade to the RS for the LSD.
I know i will need the ECU from a 2.0 zetec, but.... Will i need the keys from the matching ecu? , just the chip from the key? or can you get the ecu unlocked so that the key code is not needed?
Is the wiring loom different? as far as i know the 1.8 and 2.0 zetecs are the same other than the 2.0 has larger pistons??
any help would be great.
