Engine Conversion Help


Recommended Posts

Hi All, 


new here so sorry if this has been posted in the wrong place, if so please could someone move to more appropriate place?? Thanks, 



Long story short have picked up a '05 plate Fiesta in a rough and ready state with a 1.25 engine in it, much to my surprise it flew through a mot. I have also recently acquired for a nice price a 1.6 engine out of a 55 plate Zetec S, my problem being at the minute, I've also not got the ECU, Wiring Loom, Key, or Transponder Ring with the 1.6 engine. I've been told this is a plug and play job and will just require my 1.25 ECU being remapped (however I'm dubious to this being the case) could someone please confirm I will need to source a ECU, and other bits listed above before I can carry on? Also, I was planning to use the 5 speed box from my 1.25 as when I bought the car I was told it had been fitted with a recon box 2 months prior, so would like to use this box with the 1.6 engine. Will this be ok?


Many Thanks

You need an ECU, clocks, transponder ring & key from a 1.6

Good luck trying to get a 1.6 to run off the 1.25 ECU regardless of what map you throw at it.
