I would assume the only difference is the flange for the cat? They are the same dementions right?

Might be a slight length difference, since the 1.6 is a shorter motor overall.

ok, I could prob fix the length difference when I weld the v band flange on the turbo side.

savington- how do you like the start seat? I just put one in my car, and its been really comfy so far, I really like it.

I love it. I've driven it 3 hours to Thunderhill and 3 hours to San Luis Obispo, and no back pain at all even with my suspension.
