i have been told that you have to adapt one of the engine mounts and drill the bottom two bell housing bolts apparently the top 2 line up,  
once i have done this do you know what the other problems there are eg inlet manifold carburettor exhaust and engine management computer  etc Rolling Eyes

my engine also just blew either the crank or a couple pistons completely out the side. would a 1.6 16 valve need new drive shafts or would the stock ones fit?
