Re: Engine swap question

I believe it does. The Lancia Y10 is more or less a tarted up Panda and is available with the same/a similar turbocharged engine.

Re: Engine swap question

Well the uno turbo is a cheap engine relatively. The 1.3t has 100hp and that's enough for the panda....
Hope to fit the engine and gearbox with no big complications in the panda.

Re: Engine swap question

the Y10 doesn't use a FIRE engine, the 1.3 uno engine is not a FIRE engine. the 1000 panda engine is a FIRE. i wouldnt expect it to go in very easily tbh. custom engine mount time.

Re: Engine swap question

ive seen it put into a cinq and a sei before. with the centos, swapping from the 1108 FIRE engine to the 1242 FIRE engine is easy. swapping from the old 899/903cc OHV engine to a FIRE engine is not easy. And swapping from the 1108 FIRE engine to a UT or GT engine (both non FIRE) is not easy. A lot of work goes into them swaps.

What *might* work, is getting the Y10's engine mountings and using them on the UT engine. IF they fit the panda and IF they line up with the UT engine.

Re: Engine swap question

Oooo now i'm feeling sad
That means that maybe the uno turbo engine is not the one for the panda...
What do you thnk which engine would be a great engine o fit the panda if not the UT?

Re: Engine swap question

i'm by no means an expert with Pandas. I don't know what fits or not. I was just saying it won't be the easiest swap in the world and would need some custom fabiraction. with the centos, to get the engine to fit you need cut and reweld the inner wings. panda engine bay has a bit more room though i think

Re: Engine swap question

my panda is a 1000 fire 33kw
Well the problem is that a UT engine can be founjd in my town for 300 with gearbox but the 1242 and than turbo the 1242...hm...it would be a very big expense

Re: Engine swap question

Well, if upgrading a 1108 'cento to a 1242 isn't too much trouble, then surely a 1108 (selecta) Panda to a 1242 can't be much harder?

true, but isnt the 1000 FIRE panda a 999cc FIRE unit? And if its running a carb and dizzy then upping that to a 1242 punto engine isnt as easy - it'll need all the electronics to control it - or need setting up to run on the carb i guess.
