You will be able to fit it. But what for?

The 1.8 Brava/Bravo engine is different from the Punto HGT engine = less powerful. Fitting it will only increase your insurance premium to frightening levels.

havent got that sort of cash to buy one

If you don't have the money to buy a HGT then you deffinetly don't have the money to do an engine transplant. Sorry.

You have any idea how much insurance would be on a car modified to a 1.8?

Plus you need to change the suspension, drive train, brakes, dash...

you might be able to pick the engine up for next to nothing but it will cost quite a bit to get it transplanted. Plus the insurance. This is why I asked which engine and why. Its not worth the hassle or the money.

Even if they did it at cost (and free labour) and you got all the parts dirt cheap, you still wouldn't get insured easily if at all.

Ive replaced several engines over the yrs and theres nothing to it as long as you have confidence in your ability. However,sticking a bravo 1.6/1.8 in a punto is a different matter. The amount of s**t you will have to change(e.g. suspension,brakes,looms,dash etc) it just dont seem worth it, it,ll cost a fortune.Why bother?
