Re: Alfa 155 Engine replacment advice
No.. the later engine I have in mind was tweaked to do with emissions which reduced the bhp slightly but (as I recall) some of the ancillary layout was changed... not significantly.. things like the shape of the hoses and so on.
The most popular engine seems to be the Phase 2 GTV engine, which appears in the 166 and the Spider and the 147.. (maybe 156 too) but the other cars I've mentioned have different part numbers for the donkey, so likely to have a few subtle differences. The cheapest engine is the 155 16v motor (a snip surely at £2k).
Anyway, if you have your old car and access to all the bits from the one you nick the engine from, you'll be able to cobblke it together. The 145/6 could be a good bet as many of these are pretty beat up and worthless these days. You could just buy one to get hold of the engine/ancillaries and then sell the rest for spares, much as I don't like it when that happens.
No bullets for Chaingun..
