According to my local AR dealer, the TS is being axed later this year in favour of a direct injection engine. Apparently, it is getting harder to get the TS engines to comply with EU emission regulations without dropping power.
Has anyone else heard about this?
First the boxer, then a GM V6 (allegedly), now the twin spark.
I rode a while back that Alfa is going to upgrade the Alfa version of the Fiat Group “Modula” engine to direct injection giving some 170 HP – but I don’t remember if the article said anything about the second plug, though I can't see were but the plug hole to put an injector. The last revision to comply to emission regulations meant dropping from 155 to 150 HP.
