I don't know..the Alfa GTVs were pretty nice looking, even the GTV6.

IDK where the OP's thinking is at right now on this matter, but keep in mind that the tunnel will more likley than not need to be cut to accommodate an adequate trannie for a V8. The trannie tunnel in these cars IS a part of the structural strength in this chassis, so this cannot be done lightly and with some consideration for reinforcement. Then there is the matter of the driveshaft, and then the rear axle which is not especially strong.

There was a thread a week or so ago, this kid put a v-8 an, olds engine, in a Manta, tweaked it correctly, flares etc, then before painting it, put it on Craigs list. Anyone else remember it and his name?
