    328 afaik is not a straight swap. youll need gearbox, wiring ecu coding etc. I might sell my 325 engine if you're interested, drop me a pm.

    I've changed my saloon engine from a 1.6 to a 2.5 then to a 2.8 (which is now back out and for sale)

    It's fairly easy with a bit of general knowledge.
