147 - 2.0TS in to 1.6TS easy swap?

Hello all, was wondering whether a 2.0TS engine would fit easy in to a 147 with a 1.6TS engine?
The 1.6TS has a cambelt snapped and that's the only reason (as I have a spare 2.0TS).

thanks for your advice....
Jason.

Yes easy. Rather do that than suspension parts. Straight swap. Will need a tube for the brake servo. Keep the 1.6 gearbox as it's lower geared for extra acceleration.

Crack on!

If the engines are the same spec - eg CF3 then straightforward - if you are fitting an older 2.0 (CF1 or 2) into a CF3 147 there's a bit more to swap, but no major issues I can think of. Unless you have the full ECU/body computer and key from a 2.0 147 you'll need to rely on the 1.6 ECU to run it, but I'd guess it will cope OK, if not optimally.

good question about the CF number, how do I find out what I have, CF1/2/3 ?
The 1.6TS is a 2007 facelift but the 2.0TS is a pre-facelift 2005.

Will need to swap a few of the nicer parts too as 1.6TS looks more basic (Turismo spec perhaps).

Check engine number's is the best way. But as both seem to be later you can usual the check on how many catalyst's they have.

I have both cars, can swap majority including body computer and other electronics if need be.

There may be some differences between pre- and post- facelift electrics - not engine-wise, particularly, but more dash display etc, which may complicate Body computer swaps.........

But I'm only conjecturing

I'm guessing that they are both 147, in which case they are both CF3.
CF3 started before 147 production started, so there are no CF2 147.
