WELL USEFUL T HAT COMMENT...

personally i would buy a rear ended 1.4 16v or if you can afford a 1.6 16v sport you wont notice the 1.4 as much as you think. if your going to spend the time and money get the 1.6 :)

baby XE engine, plus you have all the brakes and everything needed for the conversion if you get a damaged one :)

i agree. althought if you have to do the 1.4 then try an get one with everything on it, or go to a scrappy for some shafts ?

Yep it will drop straight in. Old fuel lines can be used.

so all i need is the engine and the drive shafts ? oh and ecu remap?
You will need,

Engine + gearbox .. make sure they aint being seperated.
Engine mounts
Drive shafts off the engine thats going in.
Engine loom
ECU
Transponder + ignition colume.
If like my 1.6 you have power stearing ... the power stearing rack.
if the enigne has the ABS system, the ABS breaks and calipers + sensors.
Manifold
Downpipe
Zaust
Dials / Clocks if you have them with the engine
Spare hoses
Clips and jubile clips
Greese
Bigger battery as the 1.2 wont cope
Haynes manual would be good
Bolts + nuts of various sizes incase there is any damaged ones on the engine.
Engine hoist
Plenty of time and cups of tea :thumbs_up:

Might be a few bits iv missed but im currently doing the same, my 1.2 8v dies on me and i got a 1.6 16v lump from NOVAROB he is on ebay and i can give you his email, he has engines in and out all the time and i would recomend him.
