Pistons and cylinder head gasket are different.
CF3 uses different pistons to accomodate the thinner head gasket.
Just remember to use the CF3 head gasket or the cr will be lower.
Cats and sensor different too
Just had a really good CF3 engine fitted in my spider for a great price.
PM and I will give you the guys details, he has a couple for sale and charges £300 to fit.
Has 65,000 and 70,000 mile engines for sale - £499 and £399 - cambelt / balancer belt kit extra £80
Very very impressed with his service - cannot recommend highly enough.
This guy is just starting out on his own so very good prices but has lots of experience working on Alfas for other top well known companies.
