i'm not sure about the cold problem but there's tons of stuff you can do for cheap. Check my sig for mods i've done. You can paint your tails and side markers, white gauges, all kinds of stuff. relocate your radio. just use your imagination. The acceleration thing is pretty simple. Your axles aren't the same length so it will pull under hard acceleration. But bad struts can make it worse. If it's real bad change your struts to a more performance oriented one and it should help. If you have any other questions just ask. Oh yeah and to dop the 2.0l swap you need to change the whole wiring harness and fuel system.

Check out autotech.com They have a bunch of parts for MKIIs. Cheap upgrades include exhaust, drop-in filter, gutting your cats, and a chip isn't too steep.

Oh yeah, you could probably run the 2.0 block with the 1.8 fuel system but, if you want to mod th engine, you're gonna starve it. The 2.0 fuel system is a great one, if you want to upgrade your engine, you should definitely go with the 2.0 system as it can handle high hp applications.

Yes, yes you can. Techtonics sells the proper breater block off plate, head gasket and distributor adaptor to mount the counterflow 1.8L head onto an ABA 2.0L block. You will probably want to get a CIS-E fuel enrichment module. to take care of fueling. We've made 190+hp on CIS-E with a turbocharged 1.8L, and we're not really trying very hard, so fueling a stock 2.0 would be no problem.

You can change it over with the fuel system, wiring, and the crossflow head, although it is FAR more involved (even more so on you car as it's an '86. It's pretty easy on a CE2 car 90-92). Not much of the fuel system must be changed. The pumps are fine, I think the lines off you car work too.

Where I like to use the crossflow head and 2.0L harness, I think you'd be better off sticking with the 1.8L head and your fuel system.
