Not an Alfa :(

Potential project

Hey all..i'm new around here... or rather, I've lurked for yages, but only just registered to post!

Anyway, I used to have a 2001 GTV 3.0 V6 lusso in vela blue, with the tan leather interior... but, I got fed up with the silly little problems with it so got rid of it... biggest mistake of my life, and have regretted selling it every single day!

Anyway, I'm thinking about getting another GTV as a weekend car, as its not really practical for a daily driver for me (I drive 300+ miles a week) so I got to thinking, why dont I rebuild a GTV... so question for you... I've got quite alot of mechanical know how (and a mate who is an ex alfa mechanic) how difficult are complete strip down and rebuilds of the V6 engine? What specialist tools would I need outside of a comprehensive home mechanics tool kit?

I'd probably buy myself a V6 engine first, rebuild it over a year, probably have it bored out slightly and add a few tweaks here and there...just an idea at the moment...nothing firm...I might just wait 2 years until I can buy myself a 159ti 2.4jtdm...decisions decisions!

Cheers all! :-)
