1.6 16v ts 147

Can't seem to find and good 2.0 TS's but have found a good 1.6 16V Alfa 147, will this still give me some sporty enough driving and can i remap for any improvements?

Rather have a good 1.6 over a shabby 2.0. But the 2.0 gives a more relaxed drive.

Both are good though.

The 1.6 feels more pokey than you would expect but hard to get more power out of the TS. You could upgrade to 1.8/2.0 cams, improve breathing and get a remap?

Personally I think the 147 is a heavy car and with the 1.6 engine feels underpowered. If you drive it hard the engine sounds gorgeous but it will use as much fuel or more driven like that as a 2.0.

For me I would wait and get a 2.0.

Drive a 1.6 and see what you think.
