Where to find help when you want to change major units on your CF - engine, transmission, brakes etc. - or upgrade earlier models to later specifications.

Hi y'all

My current engine is a 2l CIH on a ZF 5 speed box. Originally, (from the SPI plate details) he had a 2.3 diesel as original. I've been advised that a 2.4 Fronterra lump would slot straight into the existing gearbox. The question is; will any CIH engine fit given the current configuration?

I don't wanted to up-gun the whole set-up, I'm thinking of adding a bigger engine so that the engine doesn't sound as stressed

I'm aware of other similar mods, so any info would be welcome

CIH carburettor and injection engines from car models usually need more room on the intake side than what's available in the CF engine bay.
