156 engine upgrading

with future ideas in my head, i was thinking about upgrading my little 1.6 engine next year as its a bit underpowered really and putting a bigger lump in. Does anyone know of any mods that would be required and are the mounting points the same on all the engines...or not maybe...lol.....or is it just a straight swap. Is the diff different on the bigger engien models?

My cars a 2001 sportswagon and cheers in advance

Re: 156 engine upgrading

The gear ratios are different for the different TS engines, but there is nothing preventing you using your 1.6 gearbox with a 2.0TS engine.

Providing you have a 120bhp 1.6, fitting a 2.0TS would be an easy swap.
