Re: Fitting a Fiat Coupe 2.0 turbo engine in a Barchetta

Actually, the Dedica Prototype had the 16vT engine from Fiat Coupe 2,0 16vT
this one is a 4 cylinder engine, which in contrary to the 5cyl 20vT, should fit to the Bs engine bay

Re: Fitting a Fiat Coupe 2.0 turbo engine in a Barchetta

Sounds an exciting project.

I remember a discussion once on this topic in a thread on another forum.

The opinion was that it could fit in the b engine bay but then the gearbox, transmission, brakes and exhaust would all then have to be upgraded to handle the extra power.

Re: Fitting a Fiat Coupe 2.0 turbo engine in a Barchetta

I dont put my hand in the fire, but I m pretty sure the best bet is to fit a LANCIA INTEGRALE 2.0lt TURBO engine in the B! ( it should also be easier to find as many people have wrecked that car, at least here in greece )

Re: Fitting a Fiat Coupe 2.0 turbo engine in a Barchetta

LANCIA INTEGRALE 2.0lt TURBO cars in the UK are not easy to find, plus the engine will have been given some stick thats for sure.

I also did hear that this engine will go in a B.

Re: Fitting a Fiat Coupe 2.0 turbo engine in a Barchetta

this sounds like a good project very simular to what i intend to do with the fiat tipo sedicivalvole i've just bought. i'm planning on a coupe 16vt or lancia thema 16vt lump at some point in the future so would like to see how this turns out.
i've also herd of a 20vt engine in a tipo, afterall the coupe was based on the old tipo.

Re: Fitting a Fiat Coupe 2.0 turbo engine in a Barchetta

Does anyone know if the Coupe 1.8 16v turbo four pot manifold will bolt onto the 1.8 Barchetta lump ?

The lump in the B gives 130.00 BHP (95.7 KW) @ 6300.00 at stock so is the 2.0 Alfa engine the best choice ??

Look close at what?! All I see is a bit plastic cover!

Surely the block is very similar to the Tipo 2.0 16v/Coupe 2.0 16v which obviously comes with a turbo version.

Re: Fitting a Fiat Coupe 2.0 turbo engine in a Barchetta

if the 1.8 fits then the 20vt should fit with the same clearance of the bravo's why not look into using a supercharger? it would be better acceleration and less internal work is needed to put decent boost through the engine!
using an m45 on stock internals should give you about 150-160bhp wich in a car as light as a B would make for a petty fast car,

all you would need is a intercooler of the 20vt, Eaton M45 charger off a cooper S, a bit of pipe work and the belt from the aircon and a custom bracket. i bet you could do it for under a grand.

No way have you got the room in a B engine bay for a Eaton M45 charger.

Re: Fitting a Fiat Coupe 2.0 turbo engine in a Barchetta



You might get it in if you remove the rad and rad fan but you still have to fit that and an intercooler back in. The barchetta has a beam the runs across the front that really gets in the way.

The two rad fans are only 5-7mm off the manifold.
