Re: What is my engine and gearbox worth... (Tuned 1242 8V - 6 Speed)

I think its something about the wiring loom and the drive shafts, its something like that, i don't know too much about engines but i remember hearing on here quite a few times that its a very big job

Like i say i would give 500 for the engine, ECU and gearbox. I take it you have the chip in the 1108 ECU and not the original punto one. Shouldn't need the wiring loom as both cars have the same ECU wiring as i understand it. Pete?

The car is running on the 1108 Punto ECU with the Dastek, but also a spare 1242 ecu which the car can run on.

mw chink; was saying wiring loom would be required for a 899 -> 1242 transplant, 1108 -> 1242 is just a straight swap

899 to 1242 needs driveshafts, gearbox, gear stick (I believe), exhaust, intake and exhaust manifolds, loom , ecu, coolant hoses, air box / induction kit etc.

A big job, Rallycinq can offer more detail.

Oh, it's the opposite way around to my one though. My spark plugs are at the front and exhaust is on the back, maybe the exhaust makes it more difficult to swap an 899cc engine over.
