Exacly too much torque on in wouldnt be good anyway. Abarth Lightweght 1.4 turbo and easy swap (electronic?)... sounds good. One day maybe

Re: Mk1 Punto GT 2l 16VT

So, found out that this car doesn´t exist anymore. Sold by parts and scrap it :/

I dont know why people make this kind of swap (16VT) and then sell scrap them.

Re: Mk1 Punto GT 2l 16VT

well alot of the time its because they want/need the most amount of money back and modded cars are 99.9% of the time worth more in bits.

Sometimes cars just get a bit rotten so makes sense to break them up.

Sometimes the person who built it would rather take it apart and sell the bits than let someone else have the car, some think that is selfish but i get it.

I think in most cases its not such a bad thing, its just a shame when a car is broken and scrapped when the car itself is rare or getting rare and is solid. Last post on this car here was 7 years ago, anything could have happened between then and now, could've been in a bump, could just be rusty. It was a very cool car but ultimately at this point i think ones like my old one that are bone stock are gonna be worth way more than a engine swapped one.

Re: Mk1 Punto GT 2l 16VT

I saw the car had oil pressure problem and the owner dont want to restore the engine and decide to buy a Coupe 16vt. That way I understand

Re: Mk1 Punto GT 2l 16VT

The 16V Turbo vs 1.4 SuperFIRE Turbo is a good debate.

If you were starting from a Sporting the Bravo 1.4 T-Jet would be a straight swap and should fit the Punto box. Personally I would go for a five speed over the later six as it's a stronger unit.

I've been looking at Bravo 150's recently as a semi-grown up daily driver with Panda donor potential if anything were to go wrong. Complicated electrics and apart now the engine is in the 124 Spider tuners at looking at making silly numbers. 230bhp with the standard turbo swapped for a Precision one in America already.

The 16V Turbo would be my choice if anything were to happen to my GT but given the choice (on my driveway at least) I would drop the Coupe engine into my Bravo HLX and make the car Fiat should have but didn't because of the Lancia Delta HPE of the same period. The Bravo HLX is basically the same unit they used in the mk2 Punto HGT so I could drop that in my GT with no real issues.

I swear it's as if the Fiat modular platforms are like Russian Dolls.

If you want to build it or want a very, very good engine for your project both my Bravo and Coupe are in the classifieds.
