1.6 Junior to 2.0L ?

Hi there all, have been looking into swapping my slightly tired 1600 (120bhp) for a 2.0L, just wondering if any1 has attempted this conversion? It's on a 99 so it's the plastic top variable valve timed engine. So if anyone has done this successfuly, what problems were encountered? Also what parts were needed from the donor vehicle? Thanks in advance for any usefull replies!

Re: 1.6 Junior to 2.0L ?

It would be better to sell the car as it is and buy a QV IMO. There are lots of differences between the cars. The engine, Gearbox, brakes, suspension, wheels. Even the instruments are different.
A good 2 litre engine will cost around £750 upwards and when you are done the car will be difficult to insure and to sell. A good, QV complete could be bought for similar money to what you could get for your 1.6 if you were to sell it.
Sorry if thats a bit negative but its my honest opinion. :-)

lol no worries, i was just trying to work out whether it's worth attempting. I'm quite new to the Alfa scene, come over from VW's n it's a very common thing engine conversions. lol heard of someone running a VR6 (2.8 6 cyl for those of you who dont know) in a Polo!
