Re: Project PT Cinquecento

That engine does look big when you see the car minus the bodywork good luck sqeezing it in.

What are you planning ECU wise are you keeping the Punto ECU & loom or are you going stand alone?

Re: Project PT Cinquecento

The plan is to keep it as original to the gt as pos, same fuel pump/ecu/ brakes and instrument cluster just to keep it fault free, I hope! May go to cable clutch, just looking to see if a mods out there for hydraulics.

Re: Project PT Cinquecento

looking good so far, i had to completely strip a gt3 last year and toyed with the idea of what your doing. Where bouts u from mate? make sure u get plenty of pics

-----------------------

Things to sort out include

GT clutch is hydraulic, cinq is cable. GT gear shift is rods, cinq is cable

Here are a couple of reference pics that might help you on your conversion mate, its not mine but another members pics that i found could be helpfull



You can see how close the engine sits to the chassie leg, two small marks in the pic are where a 2"-3" section will be cutout for a engine mounting point



in this pic u can see where the dizzy sits which is very close to the slam pannel

Cutting mods are as we all know the drivers side leg (Photos to follow). you need to open up the box section (no need to remove it all) and the cut about 2-3" gap out so the standard Uno mount will slot in. Also remove Battery tray.
you also need to bang down a lip on the passenger side there the chassie rails meet the front arms, as you need the box to fit further back (only a 1-2")
Front gearbox one looks like i can use another rubber which came off the rear of the standard cinq (as its shollow) an make a small triangle braket.
Rear Gearbox mount looks like i can use the standard Uno rear gearbox and extend is which works out around 3" .
Other things i have found the Uno box is hydraulic BUT its only a hydraulic system with moves the arm rather than a release baring. I removed all the hydraulic mounts from around the top of the box and all the parts there are for cable. I can eather weld a new section on the Clutch arm OR find on it a scrap yard as it just unclips.
Now the engine is in the bay i can see i may have to mod/cut some of the slam panel out as the dizzy cap is very close but more of a update when the engine is fully bolted in.

The punto GT works on an electronic ignition coil.

Good luck with the project mate - it's gonna be a tight squeeze though once you have the turbo in. The worst part will be routing the intercooler pipework and AFM (aswell as fitting headlamps etc)

And thats your opinion, but as your on the FIAT FORUM and not the PUNTO Forum, you will have to put up with the cinq/sei crew.

And as for the engine swap, it is a lot more difficult swap to put it into the cinq, so the end car is a lot rarer than a converted punto, and at the end of the day aint that what modding cars is all about - having something different?

Re: Project PT Cinquecento

why put a punto gt engine into another punto? just buy a gt.

why put a coop engine in a punto? because it would be sweet as. (would prefer it in a stilo though)

why put a punto gt engine in a cinq? see above

I can name a few reasons why you would put a PGT engine in another Punto.
