I知 building a punto grande rally car with a stilo 1.4 16v

Hi all, as the title says I知 building a grande punto rally car. I知 looking at using the 1.4 engine from the stilo.
I知 looking to find parts for the engine but can稚 seem to find anything credible.
If anyone can give me some direction as to where to go for parts let me know.
Mainly what I知 looking for is forged con rods and pistons and a fairly aggressive set of cams.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Have a look at catcams, kentcams or newman for a nice camshaft. they're often referred to as 16v fire.

Protoxide has forged pistons and rods but all turbo.

Thanks LeonL. I致e been looking more today and I recon I知 just going to get a set of arp bolts for the con rods. And just keep the limiter a bit low in terms of the bottom end. According to the maths the standard bottom end should handle 7500rpm so just the rod bolts for good measure.

Just get a t-jet engine+ecu+loom+other crap..
The 120 hp stock engine will give you more of the power + reliability you could ever hope from the 1.4NA. Plus bonus: a lot of aftermarket parts.
Drop the reliability a bit and you can easily get 150-180 hp.

Re: I知 building a punto grande rally car with a stilo 1.4 16v

Can稚 run a forced induction in the class I want to be in! I知 not overly concerned by reliability in the general sense. I only need 12hrs of racing out of the engine before a rebuild. And I致e no interest in standard fiat wiring and programming. I値l be using an EFI Technologies ecu and the car will be rewired with aircraft looms. Thanks for the suggestion though makes sense if that was the avenue I was looking to go down.
