    Default 405 GR Engine compatibility

    Hi all,

    My wife has a much loved 1989 GR with a very smokey 1580cc engine. I have been quoted at over $2000 to recondition it! I have the opportunity to purchase a good engine from a 1989 GR for a great price - BUT... it's a 1905cc.

    Both cars are the same year & model, both have the same manual transmission and as far as I can tell they even have the same carbs.

    My question is... does anyone know if I'll have major problems fitting the 1900 motor into a 1580 car?

    Any help you can give me would be most appreciated - otherwise the car may end up in the wreckers yard!

    Jon

    No - we're not selling our car, but I'm hoping to get the replacement motor from there. Do you know any thing about the motor that's listed?
