I've decided if possible to maybe fit a 2.0 engine in my Loeb 1.6. Is this possible. I find the 1.6 is not a good engine for the size of car.

It's doable, the 3.0 V6 is also an option an has been done before too.

Just money involved as you will need engine, gearbox, ecu etc.

Before you do anything, check with your Insurance co as it will be classed as a 'modified' car, some won't cover it, others will hike the premiums substantially.

There are a few 2.0 180 Loeb Coupes out there, but not many. It's worth taking a look around as it will probably cost less to trade the car than swapping the engine.

Why not just buy a different car, probably cheaper.

Ok thanks guys I'll start to look for a new Loeb. I've looked on a few webpages there don't seem to be any for sale at the moment.

Does it have to be a Loeb? Plenty of 2.0 VTS models out there and with higher spec
