    what would be the "easiest" engine swap for it
    cos it is just like driving a go cart

    Re: like drivin a go-cart

    The easiest swap is the 1.2 60 engine. This will take power from 54bhp @5500 rpm to 60bhp@5000rpm and torque from 63ftlb@3250 to 75ftlb@2500 rpm.

    It's the only "easy" swap tbh. Engine can be picked up for peanuts. Pretty much straight swap but use Cento gearbox, crank sensor, and oil pressure switch. You need to either cut or make a spacer to extend the front pipe slightly for the exhaust to fit but that's pretty much it.

    The chassis, wheels and gearbox would not be able to take much more power so you are looking at a major rebuild to get anything noticable.

    Depends if his Seicento is MPi or SPi as to how easy it is to fit the 75 MPi engine.

    Theres a couple of very good options open to you that both are actually friends of mine. One has Uno Turbo conversion and the other has a Vauxhall C20XE Red Top conversion, both of which are actually up forsale. But the Uno engine would the easiest. cheapest and most likely handle the power a bit better.

    Heres one thats been done although I wouldn't do this to the front bumper.

    Seen a couple before. They are very very quick. 160bhp seems on the conservative side to considering the spec he starts to list, or at least tries to portray.

    In Russia, we replaced the 1.1 engine on the engine Lada 2112 1.6 16th century. 92 hp standard and 160 hp after some modifications, such as replacing camshafts, forged pistons, modified cylinder head, new intake and exhaust system.
