First experience of a twin spark, and a 147

I am borrowing a 2ltr Twin Spark from Autolusso today, and its fitted into a 147. I must say I am mighty impressed with the wee engine. A very nice package indeed. Rev's freely, pulls well and is generally a nice little engine.....not ecconomical tho, doubt its much different to the GTA tbh, its probably the lack of 6th gear thats killing it.

I'm impressed.

It is in a 147, so that is unlikely!
147 were CF3, the alloy top 16v TS was CF1 (ie pre 1998).

Also it should give much better MPG than a GTA unless it is being constantly thrashed or there is a problem with it.
