the main thing that i am wanting to know is the shafts, with the uno ones fit or can i get away with the cinq ones, what about hubs uno or cinq? same with mounts.

i will get it to fit (trust me) and the wiring if i can do it i kno someone who will. with the uno brakes fit under cinq wheels? and is there thing i really need to watch out for? cos it seams a easy enough job to do.... so i think anyway lol

You'll need to actually make the car wider as it wont physically fit so choping of the structure of the car will have to be done...

Also the drive shafts will need to be custom ones as would be too long...

Umm might as well just use UT brakes if your getting the hubs etc makes it all easier

UT brakes will fit under 13" wheels,same size as cinq's but vented
PGT brakes will fit under 14" wheels,254mm IIRC as apposed to240mm dia, and they can be vented or solid. depends on calipers.

Some one out there will make shafts.look into racing and comptiton shaft makers.
I know someone used to make titanium ones for minis,along with loads of other titanium parts,like hubs,arms etc. but the cost was hurendus

TBH I would keep the UT engine in the Uno - unlike redtop installs, not a lot of UT engined Cinqs have been done, so all of the mounts etc will be all one offs (which isn't the case where redtop Corsas/Novas are concerned). Also, AFAIK no serious metalwork is required to redtop a Corsa/Nova but one of the inner wings on a Cinq needs cutting to clear the lump and gearbox.

As Arc said, it'll more than likely handle awful - one guy spent 18K on UTing his Sei (that 18K bought other mods besides) and that was his description of the handling - the lump is just too heavy compared to the standard Cinq lumps.

Its too heavy, unless you counterweight the other end of the car. Which is self-defeating really.

Mid mount RWD is sensible though :)

what about putting a coupe engine in. if yous say its to heavey for a UT in the front and that it would be better Mid engined then i have unlimited space (within reason) would it be better rwd or 4x4 (panda) thinking about making a track/ 1/4 mile car now

Coupe 20v would be a tight squeeze but not impossible in mid mount.

Id go RWD only as the Panda 4x4 diff is too weak for anything above 150Nm I think.

IF you are after THAT much work though, you could fit ANYTHING you like....why stick to fiat.

There was a dream thread on here not too long ago. Look at that for inspiration.
