Can anybody suggest where is best to buy a used engine for a stilo 1.8. The oil pump was defective on mine subsequently leading to an engine that is no more.

Did your engine die in a spectacular manner or is it possible to rebuild it ?

Looks like it is easier to look for an engine out of the Punto HGT as they are more often found than Stilos.

Tell me Peter how do the two engines differ it they do at all ?

Same engine, mapping and airbox are different.


Thankyou (y) so does this also apply to the 1.6 stilo engine IE:- the same unit is used in another model for instance Tipo/Bravo oe Brava ?

Tipo/Tempra used an 8v 1.6 engine so thats definetly different.
The Brava's 1.6 I think is maybe the same, but tweeked a bit for use in the Stilo (someone will correct me on this I think)

all over the place
When i went down to see pete, we was talking about the engines in the stilo and he did defiently did say the stilo 1.6 block is the same old as the bravo/a... as he was saying it was quite an old design! But i would say it the same story as the HGT and 1.8 stilo, with the various few different pieces!

I've been thinking about upgrading recently to something with a bit more go under the bonnet.

Problem is that i love my stilo!

This might be a stupid question (apologise if so) but....
Could i replace my current 1.2 with a HGT engine (will it fit ok) and would the chassis of a 1.2 be okay with such a bigger engine?

Buy the Abarth model.....doing an engine swap sounds too much like hardwork when it is already available in the Abarth model (y)

There would be a bit to sort out Kurt for example would the engine/gearbox mountings line up with the mounting points on your car and there's always the question of electrical connections /sensors etc to over come I'm sure someone on here could put you in the right direction if you decided to try it :)

It is a lot of work so when you go out and find your new stilo dont forget to buy a silver one :rolleyes: (y)
