Hey guys,
I just picked up an 04 Rio. It came as a rolling shell (no engine or transmission), but it came with both an engine and transmission, but now I have run into a problem. I was looking at the head casting and its K4-2....well looking around online that head fits a 06-08 1.6 DHOC. So it looks like the guy sold me the car with the wrong engine. My question is can I make it work? The trunk is full of parts and accessories from the original engine. Can I use the long block that I have with the old parts and make it work, or are the engine too different to make them work with out a bunch of work?

Also, side note...are the transmissions the same in the 06 and the 04?

Thanks for any help.

Does anyone know this???? If you don't know the answer to this do you know if any other kia engines will bolt into an 04 Rio's bay, use the same ecu/sensors to run the engine and work with the 04 automatic transmission?
