Hello chaps.

Am I right in thinking that the seats from a 9000 will fit in my 900? I've found this wonderful dark grey leather interior in a wrecked 9000, and before I hand over the £100 the scrap guy wants for it, I want to know I'm not throwing my money away. It's a '92, my 900's a 91.

Also... here's the fun bit, would the 2.3L engine fit in my car. Or would that be just a whole world of pain replacing the CPU and other electronics too, not just a straight engine swap?

The 2.3L engine's longer stroke would cause the crank to hit the C900's gearbox casing. So, not possible unless you want to shave away some of the gearbox casing which further weakens the transmission :eek: Very much not a straight swap!

You could take the cylinder head though, as the pre-MY94 heads flow more than the C900 B202 head and are a bolt-on fit.

The front brakes on that car will fit on your 900 with some work. Apparently a worthwhile braking upgrade.
