Straight swap from 1.4 to 1.6. Will need the change the ECU and key chip as well. The 1.6 also has bigger brakes as standard, so it may be sensible to uprate them as well if you still have standard ones.

i swaped my 1400 16V for a 1600 16V and ran it on a 1400 ecu cos a lad i know took mine without asking and it ran brilliant lol would advise for a 1600 ecu to be put on or ya get a flat spot.

brakes on a 1400 sport and 1600 sport are exactly the smae the only 1600 that had different brakes as standard was the GSI the only difference between the 1400 and 1600 sport is the engine

yea the brakes are bigger mate ive got calibra brakes on mine now but when i first got my 1.6 i had set of spare discs froom my 1.4 and my 1.6 failed test on discs so obvs i thought no probs ill fit these and they went on but the pads over lapped the edge of the disc lol also 1.6 have different clocks to 1.4s and the surround is different also and orange needles basicly tigra clocks lol and upto now ive not seen a 1.4 with the vacuum assist pump sounds like a hoover when car first starts? unless this is because abs brakes are not standard on 1.4s? but are on 1.6s????

best thing to do mate is try get you hands on a astra 1.6 (doesnt have to be a sport) so long as its 16v and same goes for vectra mate you can pick a scrap one up for little money 150 quid ish swap the engine and weigh it in at scrap yard and get most of your money back ..........and yes mate its all same wiring it runs to one big plug and few other little like reverse sensors etc idiots assemble vauxhalls so they have to be idiot proof lol secondly if you get a scrap car that runs i.e astra or vectra it has 3 upsides mate becuase its a vectra or standard astra IT HASNT BEEN USED LIKE A TRACK CAR sencondly u also get the key chip and ecu which you need and third you get your money back at the end by scrapping whats left

There's no such thing as a c14xe? It's a c16xe 1993-1994 and it's 108bhp standard and has an afm and no egr.
The x16xe is 106bhp standard and has a maf sensor and egr valve ect ect
Try and find a c16xe most will have done over 1k but there's not as much wiring involved on the conversion
