Has the edge slightly..Your joking aren't you, it would waste you.
Remember a 2.4 unit would trounce a 2.0 JTS and be on an even match with a 2.5 V6.
2.0 Twinnie, which I have had lack any guts compared to a Multijet JTD.
Oh my god this is going to be one of those diesel versus petrol issues.
My official line in this thread is simple - If its a 156 its great.
In my handbook it gives 0-62 as 9.5 seconds for the 2.4jtd (10v? in 2000?136bhp) and 8.6 for the 2.0 ts, 2.5 is 7.3
top speeds are around 125 for the 2.4, then 132 ish for the 2.0 and 143 for the 2.5...given this I don't see the 2.4 "wasting" the 2.0 ts.......Unless its been remapped, which seems to be where you get huge strides for the 2.4jtd.
Diesel fans talk about torque (and the 1.9 beats the 2.5v6 on this)
And petrol fans talk about the noise and the wider power band etc etc.
I got a petrol based on the noise, a diesel would have made more sense and been much cheaper to run....But around here everyone
has a diesel, and as buying an Alfa makes a statement about bucking the trend and being an individual, then so does going against convention regarding fuel... Back in the midlands, where I was brought up, petrol was the fuel of choice, and I'd have probably gotten a diesel to be awkward
Pud re my comments about petrol or diesel earlier all things being = etc, I expected comments about a 250bhp diesel would have huge amounts a torque by comparison and would hit 60 much quicker than the petrol with the same bhp......wouldn't it?
I have had several non alfa diesels - and to a car, they've been a let down, everyone of them.....
My next target car is a GT diesel......
Hope your all confused now.
So to sum up - A 156 is best diesel or petrol.
