2.0 TS Engine needed.....

Anyone know where I could get my hands on a 2.0 TS engine.....I'm starting to have a bad feeling about the one in the Spider and I may as well start looking now !

A local mechanic took a look and he said it sounds like it's well worn (not a variator before anyone asks!), said it's only a matter of time before I have issues though it should be okay if it's not driven hard.

I'd rather buy a cheap 156 and strip it than get a reconditioned one from the UK

Something like a clicking noise all the time......mechanic said it was noise on the shafts, suggested thicker oil to reduce the noise but did warn driving it hard would end up in failure !
