Can you change a 8v engine to a 16v engine

Hey everyone im new here just took me half an hour to find out how to post haha

anyway

i have an xreg punto 1.2 8v, but the engine is leaking oil from all over so im planning to change this, but into a 16v as ive heard these are better. (we already had a 16v gearbox put in it)

Is this possible????

Im starting to feel ill be using this often as my Fix It Again Tomorrow (FIAT) is very true to its name haha

Thanks

it is but for the results and extra cost its not really worth it better of just buying a 16v punto

insurance will sky rocket as well with a conversion

fiat's only live up to their 'name' if they are poorly looked after
