Think that will only be on the 149, which has been pushed back till 2009(?) to make way for the Junior, but there initial plan was for the 149 to be released late 2007/ early 2008 quite a while ago, that engine is the same as the new Punto / Bravo i believe.

Re: 147 1.4 Tjet ???

they're on the new bravo, imo its a great engine. at first i thought it would suffer from the same probs as most small turbos, no torque and you need to thrash it, but the new bravo is hardly a small car (bigger than a 147) yet that little 1.4 gets the bravo moving easily. it kicked my arse convincingly. imagine a 2.0TS thats more willing to rev and you're pretty close.

the 1.4 will get a twin turbo arrangement soon, with a small turbo for low rpm spooling and a bigger turbo for higher rpm spooling; bascially a turbo with almost no lag. i think small twin turbo's are the future (thanks to eu regs crap) and tbh i dont mind. i bet the remap potential is huge.
