Help 156 2.5 V6 Engine Wanted!? Recon??....

Hey Alfa people,

My engine is sadly in Heaven now and I am after a 156 2.5 V6 24v engine for my W reg yr 2000, the lower the mileage the better!

Also what do you alfa gods recommend I do, fit a recon or low mileage 2nd hand??

Many Thanks

2nd hand would be better i think price wise. what actually happened to your engine?

ive got a second hand engine after my original had the sump crack and the engine ran out of oil but the replacement is as solid as the original.

there is a thread on here about a guy in Dublin whose aux belt snapped and they found that the sills have rusted through. his user name is bat_lezerby and he is selling the whole car for 500euro. he wrote that the engine is perfect and needs the aux belt and that no other damage has been done. car is still on english plates as he only just imported it a few weeks ago the poor lad. the dealership really ****ed him over with it.

If you can, find a 3 litre and fit that instead. It is virtually a straight swap.
