just no MPI is designed for 4 injectors and a couple different sensors. any other SPI engine ecu will work E.G punto 60

i had a 900cc engine and it was leaking oil from everywhere and it was cheap enough to buy an engine so i got a 1.1sporting because i was told it was a straight swap well its jus ova 2weeks now and its still not working right we have had to replace mainly the whole of the front end of the car new engine mounts, driveshafts, altenator and other bits that i cant think of but we had trouble with ecu, transponder and keys so yeah my little car should hopefully run tonight with the new alternator im crossing my fingers
thanks for evry ones input

Ah, If you had read the FAQs and guides about engine swaps you would have found the truth much sooner.

The 899 ECU will run the 1108, the systems are the same.

Cheers

it probably wouldve been chepaer for you to buy a 1.1 cento in the first place

I think the OP knows that now, but he's a bit commited to the new engine.

Need to find out what is wrong with the car it should run with the 899 ECU plugged into the 1108 loom.

I think the loom swap is where the problem is.
