147 to 156 swap?

im considering changing my 147, naturally i want another alfa tho, got the bug now... it must be a V6, GTA would be nice but 2.5 would do...

my dad had a 2.5 some time ago and said it was very plasticy and felt cheap inside, total opposit to my 147! can anyone with the 2.5 or GTA post some inside pics of the car?

also, any words of warning on looking... im in no rush!

alternitively i WOULD quite happily go for a 2.4 diesel... chip it and up the boost and it would be quick i think... how does the 150hp 2.4 cope with a chip? anyone have any performance figures?

Yep I quite fancy the idea of a 2.4 diesel and a chip

Re: 147 to 156 swap?

Interior is good even on pre-2002 old interior 156s. Leather can squeak against seat belt sockets a bit though.

Even the 2.4 JTD 136's are good for 200+bhp and 325lbft with a remap and CDA. Ask Nige from Angel, he did mine for me and it's like a rocket ship now
