Apart from other Alfa and Fiat engines, what other units could be fitted?
Can a 4 wheel drive engine be converted onto a 2 wheel drive for example? How about the VW 1.8T?
so what gearbox would you run with the vw engine, the vw 'box?
what driveshafts then, and which hubs/suspension?
how would you integrate vw electrics that the engine would need with the alfa systems....
far FAR too many obstacles to overcome to be sensible. would cost a huge amount of cash.
and the vw 1.8T engine isn't that great either..
if you're really set on changing the engine in your 147 then why not the 3.2, as has been suggested.
or for the money you would spend getting that done just buy a gta and have something to sell on again.
once you've modified a standard 147 that wya it won't be worth anything like what you've spent.
and if you are changing the engine then you will need better brakes, suspension etc etc.....
