      Aveo/Optra F16D3 Engine internal swap into Aveo F14D3

      Hi, I am driving ayear 2004 1.4 DOHC Chevrolet Aveo. It came with a F14D3 engine which is similarly to F16D3 (US version). The F14D3 is a 1.4 while the F16D3 is a 1.6. The only difference I studied so far is that the 1.6 have longer stroke and slightly bigger bore. And also higher lift cams on the cylinder head.

      Anyone know where I can find the crankshaft, piston, piston rings, or basically all the internal in the center block of the engine of F16D3. So that I can stroke my F14D3 to a F16D3 (1400cc to 1600cc).

      And to all experts out there, anything else I need to consider in this mod?

      Also what is the manual gearbox I have now? Is it the same as the 1.6 Aveo in US? I am planning to do some job on the flywheel and clutch. Basically skim the flywheel to lighten it. Anyone know whether a used aveo F16D3 aveo flywheel fits a F14D3 Aveo? I found quite a lot at car-parts.com. But then I am afraid it would not fit.

      Anyone have the parts book? Can check the part number of the flywheel and clutch for me?

      So far I have done port and polish, skimmed the head,, removed the cat, and put in a long 4-1 Exos header, changed to walbro 255 l/min fuel pump, and changed to external SARD Fuel regulator done Unichip piggyback tuning. The dyno result is 90hpand 190Nm at the wheel.

      Did you succeed in the swap ? I have an 08 Aveo with the F14D3 and the engine is on its way out and I want to rebuild it but I'd be curious how would a stroked f14d3 behave and if it's even possible. From what I found part's and schematics the wrist pin is the same diameter in both the crank is a direct drop in and i have to use the 1.6 connecting rods. I'd skim the head to.
      Initially I wanted to just swap in a 1.6 from the wrecker but I can't legally do it in my country because I have to have the engine s/n. And the second hand engine might need a rebuild as well.
