I would suggest you don't fit that engine. Much better/lighter engines out there. Nice engines, don't get me wrong but I would go with something with more potential. 1.8 k series or vtec IMO.

If you're going to be buying new panels I suggest you become a TMF+ member. It only costs £5 and entitles you to various discounts from our supporting suppliers including 7.5% off MiniSpares. It also supports the forum as well.
