    hi mate - the problem will be with all of the electronics - as there currently set/programmed to work with the specific engine fitted to your car - there would be lots of complications (electronically) by fitting a different / smaller engine - which could be resolved with the correct engine ecu/management system /possible engine harness dependant on connections etc- BUT its all going to bump up the costs for labour and parts - might not be as cost affective as you first think

    This might sound daft but if you put any engine, even a smaller CC one in your car other that what its supposed to have then its classed as an Engine modification and your premium will actually go up.
