Im looking for your help because I dont know the 159 engine compartment. But I found one 159 3.2 Q4 with the engine destroyed and I want to see if it is possible to put my tuned engine (V6 24V turbo 450hp)
I own a 164 3lts V6 24V with a turbo upgrade holset) with forged pistons and rods, ecu management, customer headers, 440 injectors, Intercooled, etc etc... with 12-13 PSI we reach 450hp and 57Kg of torque. It is a nice car, BUT it is imposible to drive due to traction... So my dream is to see this engine on a 4x4
Forgot about the ecu etc, I should be able to start my engine because I have a dedicated ECU (MS3 Pro). My concern is about how different is the Engine and engine mounts between Alfa 164 V6 24V and 159 3.2 Q4. Also I dont see the gearbox and Im concerned because my customer exhaust headers need to surround the gearbox.
Im trying to see if this proyect is viable, I have the power plant (it is safe and with outstanding performance) however in a 2 weels traction vehicle it is difficult to drive.
My dream is to have this power plant on a 4x4 traction, but before to purchase it and try I prefer to listen you about the constraints.
Any advise will be really welcome.
