Insurance standpoint on engine changes?

Hypothetically......

If i were to put an unmodified 2.0l engine into my 1.6l 147, would it be classed as a modified engine or would it be treated as a standard 2.0?

Hypothetically, of course

We'd insure the vehicle as a 1.6l 147 with a declared modification of the 2.0L engine. We insure many engine swapped cars here, my own included!

would that be the same price as insuring a 2.0 then, or is it going to bung the price through the roof?

The price would be based around the 2.0L engine yes. Bear is mind I am only answering on behalf of the company I work for.
