    Ok everyone here on the forum. I love 3 cylinder engines so bad I gave away my Subaru Justy for 200 dollars. So now I bought a Ford Festiva for 100 dollars. I am intrested in putting the Charade 3 cylinder turbo into it. I know I will have to switch the ECU, wiring harness, axles, and wheel hubs maybe. But not all of it i can splice and soder and shrink wrap. Also has a 5 speed manual so no worries there. But the reason I am on here is I really don't know at all if the engine mounts are the same or in different spots. If so I know that Daihatsu makes really small engines, but if the CB80 didn't work. Then I am going to step up to the K3-VET. I am not intrested in touching the mazda engine types to put in this or the one from the Tracer. This is a custom Build I am doing in the backyard. So this build will be done in a few weeks. But the only real thing I know about the festiva is that the engine size is a 4 cylinder 1.3 liter. So I dont want to upgrade the engine I want it gone. Yes I do know it is also like the mazda 121 but no. I want to do a Ford Charade GTti. But if anyone can help me on if the engine will fit please let me know.
