frustrated 145 owner
was given a 145 cloverleaf by my old man, as it kept breakin down on him.
nice little car as not mainy around, main problem is the handlin which i think is a bit rubbish (can go round corners in my ex's bog standard diesel clio as quick)
anyway the cars done 70k and in october i started noticing it was losing power. unfortunatley i didnt have funds to fix it and now have been told that big end bearings gone(knocking sound from engine)
anyway i was thinking of putting in a bigger engine and wondered how easy it is to fit a 2.5 or 3.0 in it. I have heard of a fiat turbo engine fitting which sounds nice(and probably cheaper to buy)
other alternative is to scrap what is basically a nice looking car.
any info on engine upgrade and where i can get it done much appreciated. otherwise, any offers for it?
