Re: 1,8 16V TS Engine Character.
My car does have a squadra chip in, so the variator thing is doing its bit much lower down i beleave, but i carnt say ive ever really understood this.
Anyway, my car has a healthy amount of torque below 3000, pulls well to 5000, stutters a little at 5500, and then takes off at 6500, the rev counter really starts to get a move on then.
The recent petrol pipe fix has made the car run better than it has all year, but thats my fault for not having the money to service the car ( i have a V6 155 too... money pit!)
So in a nutshell, the engine in my car pulls harder the more its reved and goes nuts above 6500 and it always did.
Having said that the 1.8 16V isnt a particular fast car, the 2.0 16v engine is far better
