Gecko, engine transplant is very common here in Thailand. Crazy kids put Supra engines into anything from Mercedes to Volvo (RWD) just to gain more power.
It's less common for Alfa, especially newer ones. There are one or two old GTVs running around with Nissan's SR20DET block, but, really, what's the point?
For your case, I'd stick with the original engine, and extract more power via modification (cam, ECU, exhaust, etc.). Once you take out the engine, installing a new one in just guarantees problems to follow. wink
