non-fiat engines

would a saxo 1.1 8v engine fit a 899 cinq, as it looks about the same size as a mk2 punto sporting engine, or is there any other engines that would fit?

Re: non-fiat engines

sigh,all common engine swaps are well covered in the forum
does the engine fit well as will be said with any such conversion it can fit but will require x amount of work. measure it!
how old are you?

edit: just checked your age as it was as i suspected.your wasting your time even dreaming off this conversion as you would be lucky to get anyone to cover you let alone quote. and pictures of engines dont tell you if it will fit

Re: non-fiat engines

May I add shame on you for suggesting fitting a Paxo engine in a Cinq! The broken engine will be turning over in its grave!

Re: non-fiat engines

If thats the same engine that was in my mate's saxo, I wouldn't swap it.

It's just poor. I'm not saying it because I hate Saxos, but I've actually driven the 1.1 and it's gutless.

Of course, this test was done having just stepped out of my Seicento Sporting!

Trust me mate, I wouldn't do it if I was you

Re: non-fiat engines

if you are upto the challenge of fitting a saxo engine.. why not just do the upgrade to a punto 60 block? atleast all the parts are guarunteed to fit straight in.

or buy a sporting

Re: non-fiat engines

Well I did discuss the idea of a 1600 Honda VTec Engine in a Cinq...if the dimensions of the driveline (engine-gearbox) will fit in the engine bay, getting driveshafts made up isnt a problem (I found a place by chance in Morecambe the other week called Driveline Engineering).

Getting the coolant circuit etc in and fuelling and gearchange linkage etc is the problem. Plus then theres actually bodging engine mounts onto the chassis in a safe fashion! Its not impossible by a long shot, just very hard work!

Re: non-fiat engines

A totally pointless idea IMO. If you want a 1.1 cinq, buy a sporting.

dont think that a straight swap into a 899

if you willing to put money and work into an engine conversion surely you can do better than a 1.1 saxo

Re: non-fiat engines

He's only 16

How's he even got a car

btw, in my opinion getting a sporting isn't the same as putting a sporting engine in. I'm very attached to my Seicento, and would be be very upset to see it go, even if it was being replaced with a Sporting.

I suspect the reason why he wants to put a Paxo engine in a Cinq is probably because he either has one, or can easily get one. If he had a Punto engine I'm sure he'd put that in.

Re: non-fiat engines

899 to 1108 can be done - Rob Random Cruiser has done it to his Solieil. RallyCinq's car started off as a 899 too. But it isn't a straight forward swap. I can see why you'd want to do it with a special edition, but it does seem a bit pointless doing it for a base model, especially when a sporting is only slightly more expensive. It would probably be easier/cheaper to insure a sporting than an engine swapped S/SX too.
