    No.

    It will only fit the Renault 16/15/17 engine...

    Unless your pug has had a transplant, then I don't think it'll fit...

    Looks like a home-made manifold?

    Thank you for the feedback. I will consider a Renault 16/15/17 transplant if this would make the manifold fit. Will the car drive better? Will I need to swap transmissions too?

    I reckon it does too.
    You would probably need some sort of flexible coupling to attach it though??

    btw - Europa, was this a common conversion for Europa's? For some reason I thought they would have been standard, though I've just found that it was a downdraught Solex.

    A common conversion provided you first install a crossflow head (ie. 16TS etc.) motor - standard Europa motor is a tuned 16TL...

    Not interested in bidding, just curious.

    So can you fit dual side draught webbers under a 16 bonnet?

    Again, not interested in doing it either, petrol costs too much, just curious.

    Yes you can but you have to cut a hole in the firewall so you end up with one carb under the bonnet and one in the glove box, sounds fabulous inside the car, bit noisy but.
