Guys, i thought there was some threads detailing the V6 being fitted into the 145, but i cant find them!
Have they been deleted due to age? It was a few years ago.
Has anyone saved any info about the conversion? Im just wondering what are the main problems?
I have a ropey GTV that needs a lot of work doing to it, so it could be ideal as a donor car.
Im thinking to change both the front and rear subframes replacing worn bushes etc as i go along. With hard work and a ton of luck i want to get it done by spring. Just not saying what year yet!
Does anyone know how many have been done? It looks like the Fiat turbo is more popular. More power?
TIA.

That I know of there are
1. The 145 GTA fitted with a 3.2 by the Alfisti.net guys
2. A 3L V6 with ITB that used to belong to a mechanic of dandycars (mx-5 specialist), he sold it on to some guys who didn't drive the car and 3 years later he bought the car to restore.
3. A 146ti fitted with a 2.5L V6 from a guy called V6inside (mainly in alfaowner)

From what I understand, the conversion is a bit more complicated that a fiat coupe turbo, however it is still not too bad and definitely doable. If you have a donor car, that is probably the best way as IIRC the uprights, the wiring, the ecu, the hubs, the immobiliser and the tacho will have to come from the donor.

Rear subframe of a gtv (not sure if a v6 or a ts) does actually fit a 145 and provides the tricky rear wheel cornering ability.

I'd love to do a swap....i'd go for ITB with megasquirt

Work has finally started. Yipee!
Well, you cant rush these things can you?
The engine is now out of the GTV. Going to take the gearbox off next. The clutch is slipping so im looking to replace the flywheel with a solid one and a GTA clutch as per the advice found on many boards.
I need to get a list going of all the parts i need. Im not sure about fitting a Q2 yet, as it will add a lot to the bill.
The timing belt and water pump together with all service items will be replaced with the engine on the floor.
I intend to check the brushes on the starter motor and alternator as well, because access is somewhat limited when the engine is fitted.
After this Friday work will stop until early January for the Xmas holidays.
Im taking a few photos and will post them up when i work out how to do it and have time.
