I know 'cos I've owned both.

Or do you mean the 8v is different from the 16v ??? Yes it is......but the first post only asked about TS engines...not 16v TS engines

Re: Whos clockin up the miles?

110K miles on my 75 TSpark (8v) -- sadly sold a couple of years ago.
97500 miles on my 156 TSpark (16v)

More correctly that should be 71K before cambelt went/tensioner seized, and 82K before big-end went ... we put this down to the whack on piston 1 when valves hit big time.

So I guess technically I've got 15K out of this engine ...

155 V6 1995 (N)
Sportpack/Anthracite speedline's

152,000 miles....
Owned for over 4 years now...
A bit tappety but still pulls like a train and sounds fantastic with
custom Powerflow exhaust.....

Prior to that, had a 33 1.7ie that ran up 123,000 before a Discovery ran into the back of me! as you can imagine the 33 wasn't too pretty after that!
