166 2.0 t spark reconditioned engine needed

Hi, Can Any1 help, my 166 is dead!!! Its been using masses of oil, running badly & now it looks like the head gasket has gone2 I ve not had the car long & it is a pristine example of a 6speed lusso model with full a/r service history etc. Judging by the estimated cost of geting the head gasket done Im thinking it maybe a better idea to get a recon engine fitted as the current 1 has many problems (excesive oil use, lack of power & overheating just to mention a few!) any 1 any tips for a sourcing (& fitting) a good 1 ???

Darn, what a nightmare. Any clues before purchase that this was going to happen? What sort of oil was in there. How many miles has it done. Have you had an Alfa diagnostic?

you could always upgrade to a 2,5 v6 with the sportronic, all ecu s and other parts included....maybe leather seats too
make an offer way cheaper than the recon engines on ebay
