Hey guys, say for example ive got an old style punto.

Anyone have any idea whats biggest engine i can fit in it, make, model, and how much roughly fitting will cost if i can pick one up decent price.

Wouldnt wanna stick to a 1.2 and its either that or 1.4 turbo which wont get insured on.

Let me know,
Ta

I would have most Fiat engines would fit (with some work)? Same as with the Corsa, 2.0 16v/turbo/V6/etc.

If I were in mestonian's predicament, I would just settle for a 1.2 16v Sporting or similar till I could afford insurance on a decent engine/car.

Not sure why I am replying to his thread, I think he's a bit of a penis personally going by his previous threads/posts and replies to my posts etc...
