      Interesting project, but it seems like an awful lot of effort to swap from a 1.6 8v to a 1.8 8v and gain maybe 20hp :confused: Any 4 cylinder from that era will fit the B5 transmission, but anything...

      You're in the right area. The goldish flange is for the sealing boot. Don't hit that as it'll just knock off the joint. You need to...

      Does the weight of the V6 not bother anyone else?...

      Does the weight of the V6 not bother anyone else? I find the extra 200lbs in front of the wheels makes it such an understeery pig compared to the 4-cylinder. The 4-cylinders (by which I also include...

      Doesn't the 'vette have a rear-mounted transmission with a torque tube? In which case just take out the torque tube and attach the two directly together: presto - mid-rear engined.
