Re: 1.9 to 2.4 engine transplant for a gt
A 2.4 JTDm in a GT with Q4 4wd would be relatively easy to do as the 147/156/GT are the same cars underneath. It would sound amazing (some of us PREFER diesel noise to petrol noise!) and if it was re-mapped, had a new filter, replacement back box and a bigger intercooler (all relatively cheap and easy mods), you could see 300 brake and 450 lbs ft, it WOULD pee all over Imprezzas and Evos (at least in the mid ranges and at the top end where it counts). It would be the ultimate Alfa and really show what diesel can do!
And despite what some people have said, the V6 is HEAVIER than the 2.4 JTD so there would be LESS weight in the nose than the V6
The main probs would be the cash and finding a gearbox that can handle all that torque-Go for it if you can afford it!!
