Alfa Losing power


I've just had a new engine in my Alfa 156 2.0 T-Spark, and a few other things. It is fine on straight roads but up hills it seemes to lose power and on some occassions it has stalled - very embarassing. It it also very slow picking up from first gear and never starts first time. I have also notice that ever time i break/move down a gear the car seemes to lose power again. Can anyone advice me on what could be wrong?

Re: Alfa Losing power

sounds like you have a compression problem.
do a compression test, and make sure the timing is correct.
