Re: what one

Forget the Uno Tub unless you are a master welder/fabricator and love dealing with understeer................ it really isn't a straighforward fit!

Re: what one

The 1,4 16v would be the easiest swap, being that it will fit on the original mounts with minimal fettling. This is because the engine is from the same family of engines already found in a cento. There are a number of threads on here about how to do it.

However, the 1.4 8v turbo has been done. It is a completly different family of engine and so requires alot of custom work to get it in. Theres not a great deal of info on how to do the job as its only been done a hand full of times. All custom work.
