I wouldn't have thought they were different. Should just swap straight over. OHC stands fror overhead cam (8v).

Nice one cheers, so i still have the 60bhp engine then, anyone know what the difference is between the 1.4 8v in ls models and the 1.4 8v in the sri models.

The engines will be exactly the same I believe. The SRi's just have a sportier suspension set up and sport interior. All 1.4 8v's have the same power output, as all 1.2 16v's have the same, and 1.6 16v's etc.

Being a 5 door it probably is a bit heavier, have you got bigger wheels too? If so that will decrease your acceleration a bit.
