Exclamation T-Jet Engine

Hi guys,

I currently have a 1.4 Active Grande Punto but I am considering taking the current lump out and replacing it with a T-Jet engine. The thing is I can not find anywhere that I could get one at a decent price. I was also wondering what you all think about the change of engine, whether it would be worth it or not, and if you could see any potential problems by doing it.

Thanks in advance.

AJ

Just part ex yours for a T-jet,

You would need to swap the complete engine and drivetrain, plus upgrade the brakes etc, the cost of the swap and the insurance wouldn't be worth it

Re: T-Jet Engine

Ive got to agree, the engines are pricey and your likely to have lots of little teething problems if u do manage to fit it. What prices have u been given for a used tjet engine?

Re: T-Jet Engine

Trading it in is defiantly the way to go. The re-sale value of a car with an engine swap will be very low as people will be rightly worried, the insurance will be higher than a genuine T-jet, and the cost of the conversion will be far more than the cost to change car. It is a total no brainer!
