Engine Change

Thanks for all the replies to my previous item. I now need advice - Need a new engine for my GTV - 2.0 1999 model - I have an offer of an engine from a 156 from the same year - it is also a 2.0 Twin spark engine - will this fit and are there known issues in the change over - ?? Thanks

Agree - if they are both plastic top engines, then if you don't tell the GTv it will never know its new heart is from a 156. Keep the original GTV ECU for the new engine, though......

If your GTV is a last of line ally-top engine there is more to swap, but it is do-able
