Re: need a new engine

Sounds great, but wouldn't it be simpler and cheaper to buy a 156 GTA?

Re: need a new engine

I doubt it'd be cheaper, used GTAs starting at around 8k, and anything up to 15k. Certainly be simpler though. Engine transplants are always a bit dodgy.

Why are you looking to swap the engine, has yours died? There are always cars for breaking on ebay, but you might have to wait until the new year for the trade to pick up again.

Alfa Romeo : Special Alfa 156 3.2 V6

Certainly cheaper than getting a transplant!

How much is Pud paying you to sell his car for him?

Re: need a new engine

I personally would avoid buying a car that's had its engine changed. You can't be sure who's done it or to what standard (remember the silver 156 I had in the summer? )

Obviously some are done properly though, like a certain 3.2...
