Mg zs120 vvc (from Spain)

Hello!
Im pleasured to present my ZS vvc145 swap.

Originally its a K120, i buy with first headgasket failure on 127.000km on 2015. Decided no repair the engine, and swap, fiirst option is swap to T16, but is not legal in my country



Finally decided retroswap to K, but not k120...... To VVC!

The donor for vvc conversion is a rover 25vi (gti in UK market) it's a vvc145 with mems3 system. Only adapt one conector and rules!!!



taking advantage of the fact that the engine is out of car..... changed the headgasket, belts, bearings, sparks and more components before install on ZS.








I need to use the original zs complete exhaust 4-1 with catalyst, and the rest of zs exhaust line
4-2-1 vvc manifold not catalyst, and modify exhaust line to case with rear zs line, cause several problems with Spanish MOT (ITV)

First vvc start:

-Vvc conversion
-Blue Monaco seats
-rear stabilicer bar 21mm
-rover SDI gearbox selector bar with counterweight
-poliuretan bushes on gearbox selector bar
-rover 45 front headlights

And with my others Rover's. The r45 1.6, R420gsi, Zr160



And my loved boy R220 GTI with rare 20m4f, and equipped with Asr reinforcement, Gaz coilovers, strut bars, etc

Nice swap, how do you like the drive compared to the non-vvc version?

In low count rev, the vvc its more usable, and more progressive response. in the upper part of the rpm account, it is much more cheerful than k120.

And gearbox from 145 vvc helped, its larger ratio than k120 for long travel, and help for low fuel consumption!

definitely much nicer to drive the vvc

Example acceleration in third gear:

Tomorrow change the rear stabilicer bar, originally 18mm, to 21mm. And clean the IAC sensor
