Re: engine swap to an punto gt engine

yeah it's a lousy idea, have a search for it. It has been done, but it makes the car nose heavey, destroys the handling and costs a lot

if you have 2k spare, then spend it elsewhere - like a turbo, or 16v conversion, or both

Fiat SuperFire 1.2 16V engine from the Punto IIRC. A lot of people end up sticking the 1.4 16V later engine in eventually though.

the first is about 80bhp, latter about 100bhp.

Re: engine swap to an punto gt engine

The 1.2 and 1.4 FIRE engines are an evolution of the engines that were origionally fitted to cento's so will fit with less work

the Punto GT engine is based on a different older design of engine and is much bigger and heavier so requires cutting the car to make it fit and as it is heavier the car will be front heavy and understeer in corners

You will need to anticipate more or alter more hedges...

Re: engine swap to an punto gt engine

From what i have read of this thread so far it seems like you have already done the conversion/ in the middle of it. What kind of info are you after?

Re: engine swap to an punto gt engine

I don't see the point in the Punto GT conversion -- if you're going to have to fabricate all the engine mounts there are far better, lighter, more powerful engines out there.............

Re: engine swap to an punto gt engine

I think a 1.8 K series will fit in there, others have suggested the smaller Honda and Toyota units. All will need either subframing or new engine mounts fabricating, all will need new gearbox linkeages, etc. and their own gearbox, as will the Punto/Uno engines. All will outperform all but the Turbo units...........

But the 1.4 16v from a Stilo (etc) is a much easier prospect.
