engine change

After some help with this one, currently drive a 147 2.0 tspark, just before christmas the timing belt snapped and damaged a fair bit of the engine. I've managed to get an engine from a local scrappy that ensures me it will fit into a 147, the donor car was a 156 2.0 tspark. My question would be apart from the obvious things, filters, plugs and timing belts, is there anything else i would need to change or alter in the engine bay. Someone has said that i may need to change the exhaust manifold, if this is the case where would you recomend to purchase one of these, at a resonable price?
Any help would be muchly appreciated

If you do need to change it surely you have one off your old engine?
