Re: marea 1.6 16v engine swap to tipo

should be possible. you'll have to check engine mounts first though. i can't think of any reason why it wouldn't though. it'd be a good swap, 100bhpish and fair amount of torque i believe?

Re: marea 1.6 16v engine swap to tipo

1.6 engine goes in to tipo whitout problem but electrical wireing is problem,you have to take all wires from marea and ECU,then apply it to tipo.

few months ago we apply 3.0 V6 from alfa romeo 164 to tipo and if that is possible than this is easy

Re: marea 1.6 16v engine swap to tipo

I always thought that the easiest upgrade for a 1.4/1.6 Tipo would be to fit the 1.6 MPI 90Hp engine from the Mk1 punto sporting / cabrio.

As far as I am aware it is basically an improved Tipo 1.6 motor, has anybody done this? Should go more or less straight in.

Tipo engine cradle is pretty much the same as the Bravo/Marea/Coupe so engine mounts are always going to be there or there abouts.
