Possibly not, that's quite short.

If you do a search on here there is a historical thread re 1490mm cables being the correct ones for dx engines cars.
NLA of course.

I'm just not sure what your manifold set up is.

And yes Mark - it's a busy little bay but the 16v comes with a guide frame for the end of the cable where it meets the gerbox.
