Re: Engine swap

Well which punto do you have? I can't see clearly if it's a mk2 or not. - ah, never mind, checked your sig. Either way someone is going to come on here and tell you it's cheaper/quicker to buy another punto with a bigger engine already fitted then again I've found 1.2 16v engines for under a quarter grand, if you stuff it in yourself that would surely be cheaper, right? I cling to that hope as I want a bigger engine as well, preferably without swapping cars

Re: Engine swap

Just to clarify lol Its a mk1 60sx 1.2 8v. And i no it''s cheaper to buy a new motor, but thats easy lol Fancy the fact that its your own work and ideas that have gone into it.

Were thinking about the 1.6 8v

Or maybe a GT engine haha

Re: Engine swap

Thats what it's about for me too. Would more than likely be cheaper, but that takes away most of the fun.

One of my plans is to, put a GT engine in, then buy some 55 badges for sides Then when chavs in there corsa's come, thinking they have a chance haha
