All the engines are interchangeable, however there can be differences in the connectivity of the engine sensors (shape of the plug), also exhaust manifolds can be different.

I replaced a 2.0 in a 156 (99 V plate) with a 2.0 from a 155 (96 p plate). Had to change all the engine sensors, exhaust manifold, plastic rocker cover and coil packs and air intake.

If you have the original engine though its really easy as you already have the bits that need changing.

P.S Whereabouts are you?

Again yes, although some exterior bits are different as in manifolds. But the heads themselves are the same

Jaaaaag

Older CF1 engines had different exhaust cam pulleys (the gaps in the sensor ring, specifically), which will confuse the ECU in a later car. Easily fixed though

I hope you don't mind the thread hijack but if you're interested I have a 1996 2.0 TS 145 Cloverleaf up for sale, the engine is in really good condition and it pulls like a train. There is an ad on the classifieds section of this site where I have left a full description.

It could probably use a cambelt change but I'd have thought you'd do that as a matter of course while transplanting the engine anyway?

As much as it pains me, I'm happy to see the car broken up if it means that more Alfa's stay on the road!

I'm not asking silly money either, I'm open to reasonable offers around 250 mark...

CF1 are pre 1998 and are the alloy topped versions with a basic alloy intake manifold.
CF2 gained the plastic camcover and the large plastic variable intake manifold.
CF2 are engine type 32301. Engine type is on the chassis plate if you have the whole car to look at.
