Re: 156 advice please
There was an article in this months AROC newsletter about a 2.0 TS prepared (tuned to 194bhp )- zorst,racing cams,head work,induction,remap. run in one of the endurance races.
Stops goes to find newsletter it was Team Brunswick @ the Nurburgring 24hour in june this year. It finished the race (not without a few problems) including a wheel bearing, and a driver knocking the bottom of the sump off on a high curb.
If you're looking for the road/trackday the 156 is certainly getting the mods now. I'd reccomend looking for a RHB suspension setup, replacing bushes with powerflex ones, and then getting jano @ autodelta to work on the engine, may be worth talking to him.
But I'd budget on all belts, tensioners, water pump & the variator wantiung replacing if they havent been already.
