Forget it. I mean really forget it. Purely from a technical point of view. ( I ain't a purist!)
No can do. ( well, you COULD if you wanted to, as there's a guy swapping in a Ferrari 360 engine)
What YOU want to do , being in SA, is find out where Dawie de Villiers is. I thought Jo'burg.
Then have HIM rebuild your engine. You won't be disappointed! The man is a legend in building Alfa engines.

Learned something new then... I was REALLY thinking about the current 159....

Hey, any late Alfetta here was available as a 2000 with Motronic and VVT. Alfetta QO! My brother had one. Great car. I had several carbed 2000's.

Anyway, the CURRENT 159 is NOT an option for a transplant!

so, here goes: a 116 Nord engine can be swapped. You want to put a 116 engine into a 105.

Following will show up:
modify crank bushing. ( you need to remove the crank to do this or have it done.
Change oil pan AND oil pump lower assy.
Find out how to modify the rev counter assy. Best is to disassemble engine, have crank milled, change over engine front cover due to rev counter.
OTOH you could swap the EFI Motronic to your GTVs engine, together with the head.
But!

Why? It runs far less interesting compared to a carbureted car, there are hardly custom cams available etc.
I still suggest you contact Dawie and discuss your needs.

you won't see much of a difference.
The rears are the same, it's just that a 105 has a slightly larger and deeper hole for a bronze pilot bushing. you purchase a pilot bush (two sizes, watch out!) Then you take out the crank, bring it away to a machine shop and have it drilled to the pilot bushings size.
There's no other way, sorry.

Can you find Alfa 75TB stuff there?
plug and play turbo.

one other problem with turboing a 105 is the steering house location vs turbo location. I know, I did this. ( a 75TB engine in a 105)
Is yours LHD or RHD?
RHD is much easier!

Dawie is simply right. And so are you, use a copper head gasket, but please try to find a 75TB engine which will make it much simpler. Don't even think of carbing a Turbo. That is stone age technology.
Try looking here at 'engine conversions'. Somebody's been there ahead of you...

Ray, PM me your mail adress, I know of several TB engines available here in Holland. No in between for me, I'll just direct you to the sellers by mail. Perhaps you can make a deal, perhaps not. But if you don't give it a try, huh?
Alles sal reg kom!
