Jtd 8valve

Hi guys. I need some advice please. I drive an alfa Romeo 147 1.9jtd 8 valve, I know it's a fiat forum but engines are the same. Need to redo the engine and was wondering whether the 16v jtd engine would fit in my 147? If this is possible I would instead just spend the money on a 16v engine.
Thanks

Hi,
mechanically it WOULD FIT, as the bottom ends are the same,

however the car uses CANBUS electronics, and a LOT of the kit in the 16V would not communicate well with the cars 8 valve electrics
