Re: Is it 165bhp JTS
What is making you wonder if it's underpowered?. Are you just wondering about the rumour or does not feel as quick as it should?.
How old is it?, is it an early one?.
I don't believe there is any hard evidence of this power loss, but rumour had it it was very a early production batch, which seemed to find there way to Germany.
I am fairly happy that mine is OK, it is definatly better at low revs than my previous 156, which was 155BHP 2.0TS, and about the same at the top end. Bearing in mind that 155 to 165 BHP is only about 7% increase, it is probably within the tolerance that a manufacturer might expect. Another point is that Alfa Engines seem to get better with age, so If yours is fairly new, it will probably get better in time.
