  2. 6 speed gearbox in a 147 120HP?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I have a 147 1.9 120HP with a 5 speed gearbox but I feel like it could really use an extra gear. How difficult would it be to put in a 6 speed one from a 16v? I'm guessing it should be straightforward since the engines are basically the same? Any other modifications which would have to be made...

    Alfa 164 & 166
    Hello! My gearbox on my Alfa is dead. I can drive it, but it's a nightmare that I can't describe in english language. Sooo, I need a new one. A "new one" means that in my country I have a lot of Alfa's 166 for parts, but not any 2.0 turbo, or 2.5, or 3.0. So, I can fit a 2.4JTD one?
