All the best you will need it mate, crap engines IMO
I wish I had stuck with my 1.4 in the Punto.

Too heavy aswell, hope u don't plan at going round a corner haha

Nah hope it works out will be a fast straight liner for sure with lots of torque which is what the 1.4 suffers with.

All the best with it Dunc. With regards to the weight issue - aren't those engines all aluminium? In which case they might even weigh about the same as a UT lump with a heavy cast iron block!

I think you had a bad experience with them mate. They are strong engine and the Lancia boys seem to do alright! Plus, its basicly the same as my old 2.0 8v twincam lump. The bottom ends are pretty much identical, just a 16v head fitted (plus other stuff obviously).

Yeah it'll be proper quick in a straight line! Handling wise, it'll not be much different to the old 2.0 8v lump. Sure it'll be ok. 300bhp easily achiveable which is what im all for Very Happy !

Nah, they are cast iron! The 16v fiat/lancia lumps are just a 8v twincam lump with a 16v head fitted in basic terms. There are other bits, like more sensors and a much more up to date ECU running it all. But in basic terms, theyre a 16v version of the twink lumps.

Wiring won't be too bad. They run a completely separate engine loom which the ECU plugs into, just like the older delta 2.0 8v loom and ECU as was fitted before. Yeah, theyre are more plugs and sensors, but its still pretty much straigh froward. Only thing will be getting the ECU de-coded other wise it won't run!

Cheers mate! I'm well pleased with how it looks in there! Fits really nicely and looks pretty smart! Especially when i've cleaned and painted everything Wink

Engine looks good in there Cool 
Have to say i'd be worried about the extra weight on the front end of a very light car, will make it nose heavy and affect the handling.
But if you've done it before then you know what to expect.
Hope you've put a good roll cage in the car.

get a proper thread up dunc, just start it from your current progress doesnt need to go back to day 1, you'll prob lose it when the server goes down again!

fair play for you for trying with a 2.0 but more than 300bhp is possible from the sohc engine, on psc there are a few 300bhp+ 1.4 and 1.6 gt's,
you can build a 1.6 or even a 1.9 sohc engine,

dont know if you've seen this but take a look at the pics and the power outputs

i hope you get this on the road dunc

Great work Dunc:) Even if it is a little heavier, you'll probably need the weight for extra grip on the front wheels

Hi mate,

i do have updates and lots of pictures. When i get a few hours i shall sort them all out and upload everything. I'll start a new thread from scratch from day one when i bought the uno, through to the 2.0 8v conversion and now onto the 2.0 16v turbo conversion.

It's getting there tho!
