Hi, I have a 1995 Punto cabrio base model with the 8 valve 1.2 fire, single point injection. I bought it with broken head, replaced the head and all the other cooling stuff. 2 years later and less than 10kkm seems like the head is going again.
All the time the engine worked it was consuming oil so the block side is not very good either.

I want to keep it original, with the same injection, same ecu, 8 valve, everything. I wouldnt mind using a new gearbox if it could work without modifications.

Where I live Fiat 500 with 69 hp is very popular, will its head fit my old intake? Engine mounts are the same? I can probably find engine like this easily and its almost new so better servicing etc.
If this one wouldnt fit, what is the newest fiat that I can use?


Thanks
