Hi i was wondering if anyone out there knew if it would be possible to fit a 6 speed gearbox from a 1.4 into a 1.6 stilo with a 5 speed gearbox. I know if it were possible top end might be less but acceleration would be significantly improved.

Acceleration may be slower due to having to fit in an extra gear change - all that time while the clutch is pressed you are not accelerating. Most 6 speed boxes tend to have a high 6th as an overdrive. I'm not sure if this is the same for the Stilo 6 speed boxes. I always wish my Tipo had a 6th to drop it into when on the dual carriageways and motorways.

Might not fit. Isn't the 1.4 a superfire engine, a different design to the 1.6 / 1.8 / 2.4?

Correct! There is another thread on here regarding this in this very section. I'm certain that it won't fit.
