2001 Spider

Can I fit either a 156 TS or a GTV V6 gearbox to my TS Spider?

Does anyone know how involved, or if its even possible to fit, either of these options to my to my 2001 ph2 Twin Spark Spider?:

1, a GTV V6 5 speed gearbox
Ive been offered a GTV box, but its a 3.0 liter...


2, a 156 Twin Spark 2.0 liter 5speed
I believe from what I have read that the Spider and GTV use the older 145/146/155 gearbox with the clutch slave on the outside (on the top) and as such have a different clutch to the 147/156... but please correct me if i have that wrong.. however... is it possible to fit the box from a 156 with a simple mod like a longer clutch hose and a different clutch? Or is there something more obvious that im missing like I would need a different (longer?) output shaft? different drive shafts? etc to make that work...

Thanks for your help guys, Im really struggling with this problem as down in Aus we dont have many alfa gearboxes, I dont think we had the 145/6/155 models here and GTV/Spiders are still worth good money so breakers charge an arm and a leg for parts...

My beloved 2001 TS Spider needs work...

Any TS gearbox should be interchangeable. The 1.4 and 1.6 have lower ratios but the 1.8 and 2.0 are the same

Not sure a V6 5 speeder will fit though, different bell housings
