emo Copen Engine Swap

20 Feb 2020 13:54 #27664

Hi all,

So I've just managed to buy an absolute dirt cheap Copen 0.7 Turbo on eBay - bodywork is scrappy but the engine is mint.

The plan is to put it in my L501 Cuore - the 850cc block is on it's way out and I've been looking to put some more horses in an already fun car.

Does anyone have any history in this swap? Easy? Also thinking of taking the hubs from the Copen too so I can put the larger vented 246mm Discs.

Any info would be greatly appreciated!

(Also have recently started an Instagram page called @bucks_garage so give me a follow!)

I have no experience in this swap however i do know that the copen gearbox does not have povision for a speedo cable. You will have to either reuse your cuore box (EF, ED, EJ and JB engines fit the same gearbox) or open the copen box to add the missing drive gear.
