1998 156 2.5 v6

cam locking tools

hi guys
I have a 156 v6 on a 1998 plate and a dilema
i have a choice take my car to my local garage who are competent to change my cam belt and all the tensioners and water pump for a metal version. Which will set me back about 650.00 or the guy who works there and is also a mate will do it with all the same parts ordered from the same supplier for about 400 and will bring all the kit required to my garage.... except the cam locking tool.
On ebay these are going for 60-70 however there is one that has cropped up for 20.00 but the guy that owned it had a 2000 reg alfa 156 v6. In the listing he quoted engine numbers and i was wondering if the 1998 and 2000 shared the same engine as im not sure if the engine type changed with the facelift model??

Like i said id rather save my self a few quid (could get a full service and a valet with the difference) and help a mate who gets paid peanuts out!!!

Totally Alfa who make tools for Alfa only quote two cam lock sets, one the the 2.5 and 3.0 engines, and the other for the 3.2 engine, so based on that, I would say they will work fine.
