Right I know this has prob been covered but i cant find it

Been looking for a 1.9 150 but have noticed loads of 120's, I heard if they are both 16v's I can get the 150 software loaded onto the 120

Is this 100% correct. I would then add the tuning box, would i see the same results as a 150
cheers

Yeah but only early models would have the 16v lump in

The 150 is a better engine than the 120 8v

But the 8v doesnt have the dreaded swirl flaps!

you are right and wrong.

There are a very small amount of 1.9 16v 120bhp engines about. However, this is a very limited amount.

The majority of the 1.9 120 bhp engines are infact 8v.

Hope this helps (Y)

if its the 120 16v engine your best bet is a re-map you will hit 200bhp no messing

altho in about 06 the switched to a v8 head in the 120 and this is totally diffrent altho with a tuning box you will hit about 160bhp + and road tests confirm its just as quick 0-80 as a 150 running at 200bhp :D

the 120 seems to be a lot cheaper, i just wanted to check if the only difference was the map
is the oil filler is on the right on the 16v? 8v on the left?

Hope this helps. You can clearly see the rod Super-Dan is on about. This sometimes comes off the swirl valve caps & results in a new inlet manifold being required.
