The obvious: drop in a 1.1 or 1.2?

Re: Uno mk2 1.0 FIRE

In my country, if i change the engine, the car would be not roadworthy, so that is kinda out of the options.

Re: Uno mk2 1.0 FIRE

That would seriously limit and/or complicate your possibilities.
We would need to know what is and what isn't allowed (or tolerated) in your country.
Maybe it helps to look into whatever tuning is being done to the 'formula 750' engines, which are the same 999cc's, but apperently get close to 100hp.

So everything else is possible, only i can`t change the block of the motor, i can change heads, cams, put turbo and so.

Re: Uno mk2 1.0 FIRE

First of all it is important to know of your car has carbs or (will be converted to) injection. This has consequences for cams or turbo-setup.

If you are looking for a modest power increase and a tuned-feel, you can modify cam (e.g. 866, Newman, Colombo), exhausts, porting, ignition & fuel supply (remapped or carbs?). Depending on the specific changes you might gain some hp's, nothing dramatic, though every hp will feel like a lot in this car.
Depending on your local regulations/restrictions (specs or engine-number?), increasing bore to 72mm and 1368-8v pistons (and head?) might add roughly another 5%, but is more costly.

For more dramatic increases, use a turbo (more complicated with a carb-setup).

There is plenty of information about tuning these engines on this forum, the Guy croft website, and the internet in general.
