Need Advice - Engine swap Fiat 127 Series 1

Hi All,

I have a Fiat 127 Series 1 903 cc (2 door) and i intend to swap the engine with a fiat Uno's FIRE engine. Is it a direct swap (bolt on) or will there be much modifications to the engine bay.

Are there other options for the engine? Can I mount a 1300 cc Uno Turbo engine directly?

Some advice here is appreciated.

Hi,
Depending on where you are and how much you want, i may be interested in your 903 engine if you decide to go all modern and replace it!

The Uno 45 "Formula" ("Sting") has the 903cc push-rod engine. There must still be plenty of those about.

Re: Need Advice - Engine swap Fiat 127 Series 1

Hi, thanks for the advice guys. I'm still looking to fit a larger engine into my 127 mk1 903cc. Does anybody have any more info on a direct transfer? I'm reading elsewhere that a uno 1.3 turbo or a 1,242cc punto engine might fit into the same mounting in the mk1.

I would look into other engines, but i'm from Malaysia and we have a strict ruling about altering engine mounts.

Anybody having the same problems or have any experience in this? I'm quite new at all this, any help would be great!

Thks in advance!
