p plate

My p plate spider blew on its maiden voyage with myself at the wheel.
Determined not to be crushed by my apparent misfortune i am looking to replace my engine with a second hand one.

how do i know what engine code will be right for me??

on the engine plate it reads motore - engine 16201 - versione - 916s2.

so what will fit if

If any bright spark knows this stuff please....

Re: p plate

Is it a 2.0 Twin Spark or a 3.0 V6?

Re: p plate

Any 16V 2 litre TS engine will fit, but to make it easier you want to find one with the aluminium cam cover.

These were fitted to 155's, 145, 146, as well as GTV and spider.
The later plastic cover engine will fit but the inlet manifold is different as well as the cam cover.
