Re: 1.4 Engine swap ,,, help ?

first thing to consider; is your little N reg punto special in anyway, or is there nothing stopping you from selling it and buying a GT?

You will need the brakes and suspension components from a GT to make the 55 safe with a GT engine in it, it will also cost more to insure than a standard GT.

irrc this guy has done the swap;

Hey,

Not to sure of any companies that do the swap but you could try find a rear collision write-off at a breakers yard and see if you can buy the engine from there.
Maybe ask fiat themselves to do conversion, but that could be quite expensive lol!! . . . . . . . hmmmm Perhaps not. lol. Not too sure mate.

Re: 1.4 Engine swap ,,, help ?

it'll be a 60 engine the 55 is the same. its a nice easy swap. a 1.4 into a 55 is not so easy though.

as dave said, if you can't do the work yourself then it really is not worth doing. It will cost more for another company in labour than it would to buy a working PGT.

But he has another car to drive, he wants to do this as a project..

I say just do some research and do the conversion yourself. You'll have a nice little track car once all the mods that go with it (such as breaks and suspension) are done

regardless, it's not worth the effort. all you're going to create after spending thousands is a punto GT.. which you could've bought anyway. paying a garage to fit bits to car doesnt imo constitute a project either.
