Hello guys!!!

saturday i had a problem with my car... looks like the head gasket has failed and water entered on a cylinder..... tomorrow evening i'll know what went wrong from the mechanic.


Now i'm considering taking a coupe 2.0 16v T engine (NOT THE 20V)

there are many many things i want to know :

- alfa 145 QV gear box doesn't fit right?
- should i take complete engine + gear box?
- i've read a lot that the engine can easy fit on alfa 145 QV
- what about the front wheels? do i need all the stuff of the coupe?
- the shocks kit i've got on my qv (front) are they goin to fit with the coupè stuff?
- strut brace? need a new one?
- brake disks ??

i'll use this thread to ask, and if i feel ok, this is goin to be te worklog thread.

thanks for further reading and advices.
