145 engine into 33 imola

Afternoon gents, as the title states I have a 1.6 engine from a 145 I have retained the ancillaries such as injectors an throttle butterfly etc.

My question is would I be able to put the 1.6 lump in and still use the 1.4 electronics, both engines run with the Weber IAW system. I dont have the 145 ecu so was hoping the 33 electronics would just 'adjust' itself regarding increased fuel and air requirements from the 1.6?

Is this theory sound or am I barking up the wrong tree? I have a set of Dellorto carbs with the manifolds sitting there but since buying it I decided I would quite like to keep it original (aside from the extra 200cc that is!) as the Imola seems fairly rare.

Any Ideas?

The engine will need its original ECU from the donor car as the 145 ran a different setup to the late 33 versions although the engines look almost identical.The problem exists with mainly the crankshaft sensor signal,airflow and MAP signals.These need to be spot on otherwise the engine will run like a bag of s**t.Another way would be to use Jenvey throttle bodies with a programmable E.C.U if you don't want to convert back to carbs.
