  1. heart transplant of V6 into a TS

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    In my youth I built several bikes starting with a chassis and adding parts as I could afford them but never converting cars. As some of you know I have a 2000 TS with full cup kit that has been in dry storage for 6 years. Lately I have been itching to get it back on the road so had it Mot'd and...
  2. The heart transplant

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Ever since I bought my '04 1.8TS in January last year, the clutch has been on its last legs - even so, I have done close to 40.000km! I had already started purchasing parts last autumn, including a nice TTV Racing lightweight flywheel. Then I got to talking to a fellow Alfaholic of mine, who's...
  3. 164 differential transplant. Aiuto!

    Alfa 164 & 166
    I had nearly got the 164 ready for MoT when she fell down an inspection pit and broke the diff. I`m now again on the cusp of scrapping it. But I feel the fault, for once, is not the car`s and I miss her. A smoking Audi diesel is a deeply dispiriting substitute. So, now that I`ve been kindly...

  7. Engine transplant 2.0 ltr to 1.8?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Some may remember my earlier post about head gasket troubles, well I am toying with the idea if just swapping the whole engine. The question is, will a 1.8 TS be a straight swap for the 2 litre TS that is currently in there. Only reason I ask is that I have the offer of a 1.8 for peanuts. Will...

    General Alfa Discussion
    OK I know not strictly Alfa, but the engine is at least an Alfa lump.... I've got a couple of Lancia Beta HPEs, quite rare cars these days owing to the rust issues of the 80s..... Anyway, Both have the 2litre Lancia engines, and both are knacked - long story short one isn't going anywhere and...
  10. Engine transplant questions

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    My engine has failed under warranty. I have a 147 2.0 TS. My alfa man has said that he would be prepared to fit a v6 engine rather than a TS one if I wished. I understand a fiat coupe route is easier, but I want to stick to the Alfa engine. 3.2 v6 are a fortune, but there seem to be quite a...

    So on Thursday (29th) I'm changing out my interior on my ph3 spider, carpets and seats going black and leather from my current grey and cloth. Also putting on some GTA wheels which I think will look great. As always I'll go into it hoping for the best and expecting a few curve balls. If anyone...

    Hi Guys. The 2lt engine in my 156 Sele has well and truly blown its selt to bits., but I'm no quiter! I want to source a replacement engine the only issue I have is which engine to fit. I believe that the Selespeed has the same gearbox as the manual and should be compatable with any 2lt twin...

  15. 145 V6 transplant?

    Alfa 145 & 146
    I am thinking I would like to put a V6 into my Cloverleaf to make an interesting show car and a fast occasional track car. I know this has been done a couple of times, the GTA engine in Germany and a 164 engine into a 146ti here. Both those projects sound a bit beyond my skills, I'm okay with a...
