hi guys on a previous post i was guna swap my seized 1.8 engine for a 2.0t but my wife has just been offerd a company car so the vec is no longer needed, my brother how ever wants it but bieng only 18 the 2.0t is outa the question,

now what i would like to no is, what is the engine code for my vec 1.8 52 plate, i have found engines for as little as 350 quid which is a bargain, but unsure if there the right ones, also would a new 2008 1.8 engine drop straight in? there vvts so unsure... or would an old 2.2 from a pre face drop in?

would ecu's need to be changed?

thanks in advance
