06 plate Grande Punto 1242cc engine swap

I have a very low mileage 04 plate Punto engine 1242cc 8v, which I would like to instal into an 06 plate Grande Punto 1242cc 8v.

Can anyone tell me if the engines are the same, or if there are any differences I need to look out for.

Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Re: 06 plate Grande Punto 1242cc engine swap

The basic engine is the same, but there's a number of little things which would need modifying/adapting and will make it a real headache and affect the resale value later on.

You're better off finding a Grande Punto engine, or at very least, a FIRE EVO from '05 onwards which will be more compatible and need less swapping-over of parts.

What's wrong with the current engine?
