Can i swap a marea 147bhp engine with a 155 one ?

Hi guy's.

An odd Question this, my Marea is the 2.0 20v 147 model, but is it possible to put in a marea 155bhp engine the "vis" model ?

I'm asking because I have been told that a scrappy near me may have one going. (only the engine left) apparently it was a Bravo 2.0 20v 147 model. And it was a much lower mileage than mine.

Any thoughts ?

Cheers.
Rob

well yes you could but i do not know how much would need to be replaced, engine loom, ecu, clocks, but i dont know where it stops....

dont go for the 155 as the engine bay is full of plastic

why? wouldn't think it would be worth it unless your engine is on its way out

The general reason why i'm thinking of changing engine is because i have the feeling that the bottom end is starting to knock slightly.

So if I manage to find this 155bhp one out of this bravo, is is as simple as kust swapping engine's or is it more complicated such as swapping engine parts aswell ?

Well I think the 155 has a fly by wire type throttle. So you would need to change all that unless it can be modified at the engin side.
