New to the site and need some help if possible, I have a mk6 fiesta with a 1.25 engine and I want to put a bigger engine in. What is the best engine to get to put in and what else would I need to get.

Hi Ben,

 

Are you looking to take the engine from another of the same MK, or are you wanting a different engine altogether?

 

I think you can take up to a 1.6 from the MK5 without too much issue but you need to bear in mind that the ECU probably needs transplanting too!

Any engine pal just not got the power I want with a 1.25

would the details be changed on the log book, so your insurance is still validated?

Yer not worth not telling them

To be honest, its probably cheaper for you to sell the car, and buy a zetec or Zetec S with a bigger engine. By the time you do the transplant, code the injectors, pair the ECU, immobiliser etc, your probably looking at as much money as it would cost to just put the hand in the pocket and pay out the difference...

Breene
I would but I have already done mods to the car so it wouldn't b worth it

thats fair enough,

 

well in that case, as far as I know anything up to a 1.6 should be a straight swap in most instances, of course you would need the ECU also and probably the engine repairing.
