  10. 75 seat transplant

    Alfa 75, RZ, SZ
    The 75 I'm probably about to buy is a normal TS, not the Limited Edition - if I were to acquire the Recaro seats from an LE, would they fit straight into a regular 75? I'm assuming that it's the two front seats and the rear bench that are special Recaro items for the LE, and not just the...

  14. 2.0 TS transplant from a 147 to a 155

    Alfa 155
    I've read that the 2 litre engine in the 147 is the same as the 2 litre engine 155. Firstly is this true? And secondly, if it is can you transplant the engine without too much agg? As there's a 155 with good body work near me up for sale, but it needs a new engine. A friend of mine works near a...

  17. Engine Transplant for 147

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Okay.. this may sound crazy, but can it be done? Is it possible to do one of two things? 1) Transplant a 2 litre engine into a 1.6TS? What does one need and how to do it? My guess is, that it should be a straight forward swap. Only problem I cannot figure out is will it effect the electronics...

  19. 155Q4 turbo engine transplant to Giulia 2000GTV

    Alfa 145 & 146
    It has been on my mind for a long time to get more power for my 2000GTV. The easy route is to fit 45 mm carbs,High lift cams,and special exhaust and that will bring the power up to about 170BHP which is not bad for an 8 valve motor. I like the idea of fitting a 155Q4 engine as this is basically...
