      NO i dot think they are a match..

      do you have the ecotec? you can swap up to a 1.8l z18xer? as an almost direct swap..

      if you can pin out the etec to the body harness as the same to the ecotec, then you can still do it.
      or i you do that you could also swap the z16let, or the z16ler. Which is what i want to do..

      you can stay in the etc family. and stroke and bore yourself up to a 1.6, or even a 1.8 potentially. but you would need to verify that on daewoo tech. Is you engine a 16v?

      ok, then i would suggest a swap.

      earlier engines than i listed could fit as well, but look to the vauxhall/opel line up, for the most part they share our mounts. their pre ecotec engines might be a match for you. but i have not verified that.

      what i want to know is if the new ecotec as in the aveo rs ever comes out, can i swap parts?
      the rs is claimed to be putting about 138 horses being a 1.4 dohc. could i achieve the same by mixing and matching and adding a blower?

      no, but you can do the whole engine swap..

      but the 1.4t in he cruze and aveo is essentially a smaller and detuned vxr z16ler engine.. which should be more readily available in areas that came with the 1.4 ecotec anyhow.
