You cant fit a FIAT Coupe engine to a 147 unless you redo the whole wiring in the whole car.Have to agree with Mitch - looks great and a real labour of love for someone. How about buying it and fitting a Fiat Coupe engine to it ? :devious:
There was an I5 2.4 and I5 2.0 Turbo in Lancia Thesis, which had full canbus system. So basically the same engine as in Fiat Coupe just a bit modernized (and detuned for better low-end torque). Never sold in the UK though...You cant fit a FIAT Coupe engine to a 147 unless you redo the whole wiring in the whole car.
The 147 is a CANBUS car, the FIAT Coupe is not.
A better option would be to turbocharge the existing engine.
Or even better, get a 3.0 / 3.2 litre engine and a V6 gearbox + driveshafts.
