Post by Dunc Sun Apr 27, 2014 3:57 am

Well, i thought i would start a new thread on my 1992 K Plate Mk2 Uno. I did have a huge thread with lots of pictures on the old turbo Collective site, but unfortunatly all was lost when the site went down Sad

Anyway, this thread might not be as detailed, but it'll give you all something to look at and see where i am up to with the Uno.

So, November 2008 i bought this 2 owner, FSH, original bill of sale, 46k genuine mileage Mk2 Uno 1.0 i.e.

I used the car like this for a run about for a while, and during this time i slowly did a few small things to it like colour coded the wing mirrors, fitted clear indicators, did a few other bits to make it more Turbo replica, painted the arches and fitted a refurbished Jamex Suspension kit. Basicly i raided my spare parts as i still had the Green Mk2 Uno Turbo at the time.

So heres a few general pics for you all during this time which was over about a year whist in use as a run about.

Got round to fitting the front and rear UT arches along with the side skirts. I also tried on some 14" Fiat Tempra alloys i had....the tyres were knackered so they didnt stay on, just for the picture.

This is how i was driving it about, lowered on Jamex kit with a full UT bodykit fitted. I Still had my Green UT which was my priority, so getting the wheels fitted were down on the 'to do' list at this point.

And thats how i used it for a bit. a full Uno turbo replica (with a 1.0 engine!) It was around this time, the green uno turbo was sold.

I decided to modify a 1.0 downpipe with the help of wayne. We fitted a Uno Turbo flange onto the end of the 1.0 downpipe so i could bolt up a UT Scorpion exhaust to complete the Replica look. hehe!

I decided that i wanted to go 2.0 8v turbo now instead of the 1.4 UT engine. So all that was sold. Shaun who used to be on here and built a 2.0 8v was the culprit for wanting me to go down this route! So i started buying bits ready to convert it in the future.

So, to continue the thread.......end of summer 2012, i blew the piston rings. It was smoking like a chimney. im guessing 160k on the bottom end didnt help! lol!

Anyway, i was going to rebuild the the engine, but decided to just go for it and fit the 16v version of the twincam lump. Found in Fiat Coupe, Lancia Integrales as well as a few other 2.0 16v turbo'd lancias.

So i got myself a running Fiat coupe with a genuine 57k miles from new on the clock. Shame the car was a little ropey (had been bumped and rebuilt). But the engine was standard, it ran MINT and no smoke what so ever. Perfect for what i wanted!

Heres a few pics! NOTE: Garage base is now down, the old wooden garage is long gone! This Is Summer 2013 by the way (yeah i know i didnt touch the car for ages LOL!)

Dunc's Mk2 Uno 2.0 16v Turbo Thread 20130709_175802_zpscde1e8e3

Now, as they are basicly the same bottom ends, gear boxes between all twincam engines, be it 8v or 16v are interchangeable depending on what you want! Now, on my 8v engine i ran a Lancia Delta 1.6 HF Turbo FWD gear box (looks very simlar to a Mk2 UT box). To keep things simple for now, i fitted the HF turbo box to the coupe 16vt engine so i can use my existing gearbox mounts. BUT, i can't use the custom mount on the cambelt side as the mount point is different. It's hard to explain over the internet. But trust me....its a ball ache as you will see going from 8v to 16v Wink

Engine in place, gearbox mounts on, jack holding the cambelt side up (no mount fitted)

Dunc's Mk2 Uno 2.0 16v Turbo Thread 20130724_091046_zpsa389387f

The problem is that the 16v turbo engines run balancer shafts, and therefore the belts go as follows...

8v engines - CAMBELT > AUX BELT
16c engines - CAMBLET > BALANCER SHAFT BELT > AUX BELT

and hence, the aux belt actually would run where the chassis rail is on the uno.........

So, i decided to use the Fiat Coupe engine mount on this side of the engine.

Fist off, i cut the actual mounting point out of the shell of the coupe. You can see the mount attached to this (rusty!)

Now, it is taking me a while, but over the last year ive got married, had a garage built, continued doing my house, had extension built and run my own business. I cant do everything LOL!

Plus, this time i want everything to be spot on. No short cuts, no rushing, just get it done in my own time and how i want. And now i have a PROPER garage instead of a wooden shack/working outside i can do this.

Also, this isn't exactly a common conversion....its a massive learning curve! and me being fussy and wanting it to look like fiat could have built it does take me longer lol!

Will now keep this thread updated Very Happy

Enjoy!

cheers mate. Regards the 20vt conversion, personally i prefer the 16vt lump as its more retro old skool 4 pot turbo power! And, the fact that me and a friend have actually tried to physically fit a 20vt into an uno bay, it's never gonna happen lol!

Nice job!

As well as my Trackday Uno, i have 16v Integrale, I'm doing a lot of welding / bodywork at the moment.

A lot of owners seem to remove the balancer shafts and belts, apparently it will run fine without them, some say rev easier! I don't know if that would have made your fit easier?
(i've left them in on mine as engine is running sweet, just renewed all tensioner bearings / belts)

Chassis works looks good though, you should CNC up a 'UNO TURBO 16 VALVE' cam cover!

Regards the removal of the balancer shafts, this is something i am going to do. However, this only removes the balancer shaft belt, it doesn't bring the Aux belt further in. This will still run in the exact same place. Hope that makes sence!

Cheers leigh,

Unfortunatly, its all down to the balancer shafts. The engine mount on the 8v comes off the water pump, but on the 16v lumps, the water pump is totally different (even though the bolt patterns the same), it actually bends round the casting in the block for the balancer shafts and there for the engine mount isn't on this, it's totally different and hangs off the oil filter housing. Hope this makes sence! Taken me 4 years to work out all the differences and changed between the 8v and 16v twincam lumps!

Its massivly difficult to explain on the net. I need to show people with the different water pumps in hand and both engines infront of me lol

That pretty much brings me up to date. There are a few other bits i have done, but im now waiting for my cambelt kit and balancer shaft removal kit to come. Once these are fitted, i only have to refit the sump once i have welded on the AN-8 turbo oil return to it and painted it and then the Engine is ready to go in. Oh, and clean and repaint the gearbox!

I have put the Coupe 16v turbo engine wiring loom in as best as i can too, but now need the engine in to start wiring it up!  affraid

Hi mark, plans for now are to run the actual engine as standard as it has only done a steady 58k from new and never been modded. It's a great runner as i could test it when i bought a complete coupe. They are 195bhp as standard, so with my T34 Hybrid, exhaust, filter, FMIC, cossie grp A fuel pump, adjustable fuel reg, more boost and a remap i should see a steady 260bhp without straining anything.

My overall plan is once i have ran the car for a while, i will build another engine on the side and go for 350/400 with forged goodies, aftermarket ecu and bigger turbo etc. but this will be a way off yet.

I just want to get the car drivable and iron out any issues etc with it being an un common conversion. dont want to build a mega lump and then find for some reason it'll never work! lol! (not that thats going to happen as ive researched like mad!)

sounds like a good idea just put the engine in as it is, even with 260bhp it will be a monster how long is it going to be till its on the road?

Looking good, great that the ECU on these is mappable

Also top job with the ripple cam box, i've got to do my Integrale one also, tried some of the crinkle in a can on my Uno's cam cover but the finish was crinkly but very matt.

Did you just block through the powder coat with sand paper?

Been doing a fair bit over the last couple of weeks. Lots of cleaning, painting, de-greasing, and working out! lol

Cleaned up my gearbox and clutch cover. The clutch has only done 500 miles, but a lick of paint cleans it up....not that u see it LOL!
