Hey im new here. I just bought a 05 accent the the motor blew up in. It has 1.6L 5-speed. I was wondering if i could put with little work a 1.8 or 2.0 in its place since i have to replace the engine anyways. Any help on this would be helpfull, thanks
Do a little research and you will see the 2.0 is easy enough for someone with general mechanical knowledge to pull off. Someone even did a walk through. Id go with the 2.0. The 1.8s are getting older and a MAF based. Your swap will be easier if you go MAP w/o cvvt.
