Yes..
The plastic topped engine is exactly the same, and the aluminium topped engine is almost the same apart from the cam cover, the inlet manifold and some of the sensors.

Its all pretty easy to swap over though.

That is providing your car is a TS and not a JTS.

I am pretty sure the engine is the same on that as well. Its just the gearbox that is different.

You may need to use the engine mounts off of the GTV as the ones on the 156 and 145 may be different. The actual engine is the same though.

Confused now spoke to a guy at mitchelldismantling, he says the 2002 engine in mine is different to early models and lots of things have to be changed, he said the ecu is different and sensors are in different places, is he saying that to persaude me to buy one from him or is this true?

just called him again then, he said i need my engine code before i can look at any other engines, and an engine from a 156 would need a lot of modifications to fit, can this be right

Some of the sensors are different, as yours is the EU3 version. The throttle body is different to the earlier 145/6 and 156, and the exhaust manifold is different as the later car has 2 pre catalysts in it.

The basic engine, Block, head etc is exactly the same and can be swapped.
