Got a call from my alfa parts guy here in panama, he is telling me that someone in the north of the country crashed his 155 over the week end, and its a write off. He is selling the engine for $1500. Now a couple of things:
1..i dont know the milage of that car, but i doubt is more than 80,000km, mine is 59,000 km.
2... i dont know where the other car hit the 155. If its in the front, then the engine might have had some damage.
3..It might be a 16v or a 1.8. If its any of those, can they be used in a 2.0 8v chassis??
4..If its not an 8V, could i use pistons and rings and such from the 155 to fix mine, or are they diffrent?
5... If it is a 8v, and has less than 80K...is $1500 a good price or should i haggle?
just so you know to repair my engine will run me aprox $2000 ++++.
There is a guy checking the engine out for me, so i should have an answer to at least the model, buy friday afternoon.
Also, i will most likley ^invent^ business trip to that area, and snagg some other parts of it..
any sugestion on what i should snagg??
