When changing to a 1.4. Do you have to buy new alternator, powersteering etc.... or does the 1.0 stuff work fine on it?So, there just wasn't enough oomph with the 998cc engine.
Sourced this tidy little 1.4 with only 16k on it.
Took the lid off to check the state of it and was really impressed.
Now I just needed a good couple of days to do the swap.
Oh, and an engine crane.
Checked out the hire price of cranes and it was cheaper to buy and resell on ebay, thus taking the pressure off returning a hired item.
Took two and a half days to do on my own. One day to remove, one to fit, and then half to put all the pipes and aircon back. As you can see, it can be done with the bonnet and bumper still fitted. You have to raise the bonnet a bit higher than the stay lifts it.
Would any 1.4 ecu work or would I need it from same car engine came out of?
Just swap any differing ancillary parts from your engine to the new one. Aircon has nothing to do with it. Just swap your pulleys if you need to. Ecu from a 1.4 manual, if yours is manual, and you'll also need the immu from the steering barrel and the chip from the key.

One more question do you know how much manual engine and ecu go for and best place to look?
All the trim is different and so is the rear seatbelt bolt/spacer. You need the piece I've wrapped, the lower panel with the pocket, and the rear panel where the rear seatbelt goes.for the pop out window does it need the plastic trim need to be changed as im wanting to keep the old part covering panels
looking good tho!
