Has anyone ever swapped the drivetrain from a 75 turbodiesel into an Alfetta? I dont really have the space of money to do it, but if it would work that would make a cool daily driver (I know it would probably be easier to swap into a milano, but i live in cali and its illegal to swap a diesel into anything newer than 75 if you are going to drive it on the street.)

Im not sure, if it was ok an an alfa 75 would it be that much worse in an alfetta? I dont really know anything about them other than knowing they were sold in some other countries.

What a great idea, I would like to see someone do this and document the process.

I suppose you mean the Alfetta Sedan, not the Alfetta GT/GTV/GTV6? There were four-door Alfettas with turbodiesel engines, but I seem to remember they were the later "longnose" version. Grafting a TD VM engine and all its ancillaries in a Sports Sedan, however, might be more difficult or impossible because of lack of space - maybe more seasoned European BB'ers could shed some light on this?. Regarding weights and so on, I don't see why it should not be possible, it is practically the same chassis (although the specification/thickness of the torsion bars in the Alfetta TD version may different from the ones used in the 2.0 Otto engine).

What about the utimate perversion - a turbodiesel Alfetta GTV/GTV6? And what about an automatic GTV6 - I understand it has already been done Stateside, using automatic Milano bits?

There were indeed 2.4 and 2.4TD engines, on Alfettas they are so scarce I'm not sure you could even find one in Italy. 75 same story, probably a little more production.

It's a nice curiosity but I warmly recommend against. You'll have real trouble even finding service parts for this engine.
