question about engine swaps
my mothers 2000 protege recently had a major malfunction, such as my 17 yr old nephew drove it dry with a cracked radiator. so Im thinking warped/cracked head, cracked block, or blown headgasket.
regardless of which it is, we're planning on replacing the engine.
now I have several questions that would determine the route we take.
her engine is a 1.6L ATX
1. I was wondering if a 1.8L engine will bolt up to her trans without modification ?
2. could I use the 1.8L from my 94 protege with an MTX ?
3. if so, would there be any modification required and how much ?
since Im thinking of swapping in a different engine in the protege anyways, maybe (if I can find one) an 03 MSP engine, or maybe even an MX3 6 cyl, this would sort of take care of my mother while giving me a jump start on my project.
any help would be greatly appreciated.
