Seeing that I have a "spare" V6 engine from a 156, how insanely stupid would it be to install it to my "spare" 33 ... in the back seat.... ? ... and for track use only.....

Just toying with an idea here :lol:

Got a spare 2.5ltr V6 engine from a 156 as well !
Not much structure at the back of the car though mate, only sill structure from there on and a thin beam from one side to the other behind the rear seats.

Might be better if you tried put in it in the front ;)

I'm thiking of making a Go Kart with mine :lol:

I would not have known where to start, didnt have a place to work on it, it would have had to be done by some one else. I would love to try lol :) but not got the skills, I settled for fast road cams and ported heads in the end :)

Hi Pasi
It is not "Insanely Stupid" and I'm sure that it would fit in a 33 in the same manner that I fitted a 3 litre 24v into the back of my Sprint. However I did use the subframe and support structure from my donor 164. The 6C build up thread on here will, I'm sure, give you lots of tips and I am happy to PM you for any other info.:)

Did anyone see the cinqueciento on ebay with a 164 v6 in the back? That was insane! Your idea I think, is a splendid one and I look forward to your build pics:thumbs:
