Fitting a Fiat Coupe 2.0 turbo engine in a Barchetta

Hi
Has anyone looked into the possibility of fitting a Coupe 2.0 turbo into a Barchetta?

I have not been able to have a good look round a coupe to see if the engine will fit, but the block is the same.

Is it possible and if so has anyone done it?

I very much doubt it due to the size of the engine, from my understanding the barchetta engine bay isnt very big. I could be wrong, its just my opinion

Or you could be right on the ball - the 1.8 16v engine is a tight fit anyway, with an extra cylinder you've no chance.

I would look at 16v turbo lumps or charging your existing lump .

I have heard of turbos for the bacrhetta but, just keep the engine you have and fit a burbo to it.

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

Hi
Its not as easy as just bolting on a turbo and the cost can be $$$$ !! E.g. new pistons so on ... Putting in a original turbo lump is a lot cheaper and more reliable but making sure it fits before splashing out on a second hand engine is a key point.

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

Hi, i've got a punto hgt and was interested in putting the coupe 16vt lump in that, the gearbox on the 1.8 engine bolts straight up to the coupe lump so you'd only need to fabricate one engine mount. Whether the box can take the extra power i don't know?

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

cool thats good news, once I am sure it fits I will get hold of a second hand lump and overhaul it before fitting it.

Has anyone got the coupe manual CD ?

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

I've found a couple of pics,

You can see the standard hgt gearbox mount on this one,

Custom manifold must cost a fair bit,

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

I am sure this has been mentioned here before. The alfa romeo 2.0 twin spark engine is very very similar to the Barchetta engine in all aspects apart from the head I am sure one of those would fit. even the mounts look the same

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

Hi
If you look closely you can see it does look almost the same as the B lump.



Only problem is its only a 2.0 non turbo unit giving out 150HP@6,800 RPM

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 ??

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

still a 20bhp gain plus im guessing torque is very healthy too

Cinq owners do 1108>1242 swaps for a 6bhp gain but is a fair sized torque gain too

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

The 1.8 t spark is the same engine except the heads diffrent, the bottom ends the same. I've also heard that the 2ltr t spark is a poor engine.

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

HI
I am really looking for an original turbo lump as it gives you lots more scope to play with and fine tune. Any other lumps that might fit ?

Doc Orange Peel

Has anyone changed the engine in a B ??
