I have no idea, I was thinking about upgrading the throttle body but I couldn't figure out what size we have now haha I hope someone here knows, maybe Stevenwang?

They may both be 1.6L, but you're talking about two entirely different engines -- Alpha II vs Gamma. One is a reheated version of a 20-ish year old engine, the other is a modern design with many modern characteristics like direct ignition, drive by wire, etc.

I would be surpised if anything interchanges. Except for the oil filters, those are the same. :D

i was under the impression that the gamma didn't even have a throttle body and controlled engine rpm by injectors only.

that may have been old information from when they were still designing things though.
