Alfa 147 2003 2.0 TS - Engine Swap
First of all i would like to begin with the happy part:
i have just fulfilled my dream buying a 147 Alfa model 2003.
it's a 2.0 TS CF3 engine with Selespeed gearbox.
The Unhappy part: it needs an engine swap, the last owner was driving the car without coolant and oil, pistons damaged the block and the cylinder head was badly bent, after removing it i can tell its very worn and need serious rebuild, along with all parts, and the rebuild of cylinder head i think it's better to swap the engine.
i would like to make a complete engine swap, but i could not find such an engine for now.
my main two questions are what would you recommend me to do, are there any things i should be aware of when removing the engine with the transmission together, and will a 145\6 engine will fit in my car? (some1 offered me that, i think it was engine code 323.01).
i dont mind changing things between both engines like using old manifulds, but my cylinder head is not useful in it's condition.
my engine code is 323.10.
