Engine Swaps?

As the Micra and Renault Clio now share engines, just wondered how easy it would be to transfer a Clio 172/182 or 197 lump in to a Micra?

Anyone know?

fairly simple i would have thaught, best to find a crashed clio and then do a half cut swap over of the main anciliaries...

buying a 197 is probably cheaper than the conversion itself considering how much they depreciate.

don't they only share the DCi engine as it's renault the CR and HR engines are nissan.

it was posted before that NMUK put a 172 engine in a k12 for testing, didn't handle and sales for 2.0 litre micra were not worth the effort.... apparently....
i'v removed a engine from a 172 and yes i think you could fit it most of the bits fit i'v got the rear brakes and all of the suspenson off one . the front struts tops and the antiroll bar links you need to modifey tho
