  5. 1.5L motor into a Festive Trio?

    Hi Guys. As far as I understand it, the 1998 model Festiva Trio comes with a 1.3L motor and the Trio S and Festiva 5-door come with a 1.5L motor. So, if I need to replace the motor in the Trio (1.3L) can I fit the 1.5L motor into it? Without too much trouble? Thanks.
