Engine Options for Spider
I'm brand new to this site, but have owned a 76 Alfa Spider for several years. I'm hoping the experts here can point me to some options.
I need to get the engine rebuilt in my Spider and at least in the States (Dallas, Texas area) this can be very expensive. I've debated doing it myself though this would be the first time I've ever done a complete rebuild.
Another option I was thinking about was just replacing the engine completely with something that might be cheaper to work on long term and would give me more power than the older engine would be able to give. I saw some information about someone who got a V6 Alfa engine into a spider, but that would still be very expensive to get worked on in this area. Has anyone heard of someone taking a more mainstream engine (at least something more easily available in the U.S.) and getting it to fit into the Spider's engine compartment?
Thanks in advance.
