hi guys ive not looked in this part of the forum yet as i had a mk2 punto go! lol(1.2 8v MPI) well i smashed it up the other night and im totaly gutted BUT""

My freind asked if i was interested in a cinq he had, and wow! i love it slight problem i have lots of oil over the engine looks like HG (common problem)

anyway i have a complete 1.2 8v out my punto. could i fit it the the cinq and keep the janspeed exhaust etc from the cinq? ive read the gearbox's are the same, punto 1 feels much smoother mind! and ive read i should keep the cinq ECU as it revs to 7k any help and info whould be great thanks guys!

the oil problem i would of thought would be the rocker cover gasket. not the head. if that was leaking you'd know about it.

i'm sure the gear boxes are the same. just different clutch. its a cable on the cinq.

the faq on engine swaps covers the 1.2 and what you need to do with the exhaust.
most likely the box would fit after swapping the hydraulic for cable but then it would most likely feel the same ;)

poor cinq :(

dont forget its only a little car.. not really built for speed! dont push it too hard or it might one day refuse and blow up :)

otherwise... welcome to centodom :)

If you want to put the engine out of that punto in its guna be a problem due to it being a mpi and the cinq is a spi.
