    Camshaft issues - Zetec (solved!!!)

    Use a ring terminal with that sensor and it'll be a piece of cake to screw I'm with a socket. Looks like someone has soldered the earth tab on?
  3. Made the hard decision to sell the A5. Change in my role at works means I'm now commuting into London on the train so the car isn't getting used much. Was previously used for commuting from Colchester to Chelmsford daily. It's in fantastic condition and has been completely trouble free. Lots of extras including reversing camera, sat nav, etc etc. 66k miles. Full service history. Full details here: https://www.autotrader.co.uk/classified/advert/201809150532407

    1.6 to 1.8 swap

    your 1.6 ecu won't run a 1.8. the map will be all wrong please don't drill holes in your flywheel these need to be well balanced. I had mine very carefully lightened and balanced by a machine shop @Mark (smokey mow) can you remember what it's called think I have a stock 1.8 flywheel kicking around (unless I took it to the tip after dropping it on my wheel arch.....) you're welcome to have. you could use the 1.6 flywheel and clutch with a 1.8 if not running lots of power you really need to think about going aftermarket ecu if you're going to complete engine upgrades / swap. you could of course install a wiring loom and ECU from a mk2 1.8

    1.6 to 1.8 swap

    The map would be wrong. Doubt MAF would compensate enough. Ecu connectors probably different so doubt could swap ecu due to wiring differences You'll be able to see here: http://neomiata.com/garage/index.php?path=Wiring+Diagrams%2FWiring+Diagrams+1997-2000/

    1.6 to 1.8 swap

    How about a high compression mk1 1.8 - 160bhp. I need to rebuild the bottom end though

    1.6 to 1.8 swap

    Vvt doesn't fit under the bonnet Think your wiring will need a bit of adapting. What's your plan for ecu?
