Re: 1242cc Engines, same block?

hi.sorry if its already been covered but does anyone know whether a 1.2 head from a punto elx will fit onto a 1.1 block from a cinq sporting? or what difference a 75bhp cam would do to a 1.1? is the head the only difference on these engines?
has anyone put a sportex exhaust manifold onto a 1.2 head and managed to make it fit into a cinq? the head from the elx is a mpi.
thanks. jonathan.

The head will fit, but you need to do a lot of work to get the SPI ecu (and etc.) to run MPI.

Frankly, it's not worth the effort.

Lots of folks have fitted the P75 cam to the Cinq head.

Do Sportex make a manifold for the FIRE engines? A manifold made for the 1.2 will be longer than one made for the 1.1 -- in theory, at least, unless they're really the same manifold.

Best posted in the correct Cinquecento/Seicento section.

Re: 1242cc Engines, same block?

i seem to remember asking about a manifold on ebay and them saying it wouldnt fit into a cinq because the rad got in the way.
do you happen to know if the mpi on the elx is inlet manifold bolted or cylinder head bolted?does the 1.2 elx head have bigger valves?

Re: 1242cc Engines, same block?

From what I have heard the only difference in the 1.2 from the 1.1 is that it is a little taller to make up for the extra 100cc of engine size, so I would imagine the sportex manifold should fit both engines? as the engine is taller not wider? Not sure
