2.0 Twin Spark Engine needed

Hi All, hopefully someone here can point me in the right direction, my engine has gone and I don't want to let the car go. Does anyone know where I could get an engine to fit a 2000 156 2.0TS selespeed and someone to fit it for a reasonable price?

Help on this would be great. thanks all.

again u buy the engine and pay for labour you might be better off just buying another car, seriously the labour is quite expensive as I looked into it before. Then again your up the north so not sure what labour costs there are like but down here it aint cheap
But if you do go down that route just find a crashed car in breakers as that would be the cheapest or find a very cheap car that is need of a bit of work then strip out the engine. If there is a decent alfa mech nearbuy talk to him as he should know of anything like that in the market

I'm not sure what to do at this stage, it would be a shame to scrap a car everything else is mint except the engine now of course.

Sorry to hear about your engine lad and to make matters worse I just sold my 01 selespeed with panel damage on passenger side for 500 euro a week ago ! But if you check gumtree.ie im sure I saw a couple of 2 litre 156s for cheap money
