Not sure I have good news for you. I live in Minneapolis where all the true "Alfa shops" have become extinct. I think there's a place in Bloomington (south metro) that may do some work...I can't recall their name right off.

Regardless, if I were in your shoes, I would contact the following, known and respected Alfa experts to do your engine work:

Mike Besic - in the Chicago area. 630-469-5626

Rex Chalmers - Centra Wisconsin area. 920-946-1070

I would call them, explain what you need and see what they have to say.

In the mean time, I'll conjure up the shop I'm forgetting in Bloomington. Not an Alfa specialist, but probably worth a call.

Good Luck.
