engine info needed please

hi chaps

At present im looking for an alfa engine, a 3.0 V6 or preferably the 3.2 V6 to use for a kit car application.

i would like to pick your brains to see if any of you know any reputable engine suppliers (reconditioners), scrappies or alfa salvage yards that could supply me with on or if someone could tell me what models i can find these engines in?

all the best

Alex

Hi Alex,

If you are looking to fit an engine into a kit that you are building, you'll need either a complete donor car (better option) or an engine with the v5 reg document from its donor.
If its a kit that has already been registered then it doesn't matter. Regarding engine choice, anything after 1993 registration will mean your kit has to have a catalytic converter fitted in the exhaust.

Do you have a copy of the BIVA manual? There was a downloadable draft version on the VOSA website. You will need this to make sure your car is built to the correct standard.

If you are looking for a 3.2 and gearbox, ancillaries etc, budget over 2k
Smart option is a 166 3.0 manual, complete car for a fair bit less.
Mudhut on this forum has a 164 24v 3.0 complete car up for sale at sensible money, had belts etc done too.
