Hi
Its a bit of a waste of time, as you cold of just brought the abarth! If you want to pay more insurance, road tax, and pay more petrol!
But it's your decision.

Re: Fiat grande punto engine swap?

Anything is possible really, you just need very deep pockets.

Whats your budget?

I would say if you could do all the work yourself then maybe under 5k. If you want a company to do it your probably talking 10k maybe more.

Surely not that much. I reckon if you got your hands on an engine it'd cost maybe 2-3k?

The punto's standard suspension won't be great with a coupe engine in it.

Surely it wouldn't fit, the mjet engine fills almost every nook and cranny as it is?

Well your going to need standalone i imagine as the punto runs off canbus, the coupe is years old, it will never work with canbus.

Brakes, suspension, exhaust system made up etc. It all adds up!

Gearbox and clutch as well, no way the mjet box would take all that power, especially if you take it up to 300 brake.

You would have to run a different box anyway as the ratios would be all out. Could run a Astra vxr gearbox as there a couple of them running 400bhp plus. But again more money.

Jesus really? Thought the limit was 300!

The chassis would be borked as well. Would make a nice sleeper though, especially in 1.2 Active guise!

I'd just buy that abarth evo engine on the bay instead, it's got all the components ready.

Re: Fiat grande punto engine swap?

Could you imagine a 1.2 active with an Abarth engine and drivetrain?

No, it would already be in a ditch before I'd thought about it haha.
