Alfa 156 JTS / 156 TS


Question what if any is the difference between the engine in a 156 JTS and a 156 TS. I'm assuming that the TS stands for Twin Spark, correct ?
I have a 2.0 JTS which i understand refers to Jet Thrust S(somthing italian sounding). Does the JTS suffer from the same issues as the TS, or has this got it own 'character' regarding faults, cam belts and such. Touch wood so far 3 months ownership no probs, little fault with mileometer bulb not working but was fixed under warranty without any quibbles from dealer.

JTS is bascially TS with half the spark plugs and direct injection, so it shares the same weaknesses (timing belt tensioner, oil consumption, variator etc.)
