Need to uprate transmission and suspension as well as brakes. Certainly wont be cheap. Almost certainly need new wirting looms and different ECU's.

Steve from Banshee has a KV6 engine in his 200. ASk him and he might give you some good pointers

Yes you can.

There are companies that will do it.

Some with much more dubious reputations than others.

One reputable one is http://www.an-racing.com/

Also there is someone in Birmingham that does them. Not sure of the name, but never heard of bad install's coming from them. Definately do some research as price is not what matters with something like this.

As above really, find a good company that can do it. Best get a complete 220 so you can get the engine, gearbox and all the correct mounts. Also you will be able to use the calipers off the car for vented discs, though the 160 conversion would be more ideal.

Quite a bit of work, and would suspect it to cost in the region of £2500-£3000, also you need to allow for more insurance, and the additional cost of fuel.

I would forget about the idea of fitting a 160 engine, might as well just buy a 160, a lot less hassle, and it will be worth more when reselling it.

Or getting the job done properly, an engine conversion is not an easy thing, and very easy to F up, plus your insurance company may required an engineers report on the work carried out.
