1.6TS to 1.8TS rebulid?
Hello everybody. I was just looking at 156 TS engines specs, and 1.6TS has the same cylinder bore with 1.8TS - 82mm. The difference is only the stroke - 75,65mm vs 82,7mm. So my question is: is it possible to rebuild 1.6TS engine to 1.8TS? Is the engine block the same? And if it is possible, what parts should be changed? My guess is only crankshaft to lenghten the stroke, maybe piston rods an pistons but I am not sure. Something more? /of course, ECU remap/. Does anybody have detailed infos about construction of theese two engines?
Btw. I dont understand alfa policy of not offering 147 1,8TS. I think it would sell quite fine.
