2.0 TS engine swaps.

Is there another engine that is a good swap to get more power ? I would like about 200bhp.

Does the standard engine have any ancestoral links to either the Fiat Coupe Turbo or the Lancia Integrale ?

Sell the car and buy a v6?

Don't think so. Your best bet would be forced induction I reckon.

Re: 2.0 TS engine swaps.

I am sure the 16 Valve Turbo Fiat engine would fit. The basic chassis of the GTV is the same as the Fiat coupe, except for the part that holds the rear suspension.

Your best bet would be to get a 16VT fiat, break it and swap all of the parts over. The block does have some differences to the TS and the gearbox is different. The 20Vt should also go in, but will be more of a squeeze due to its length.

Its a big job, but it can be done. The 16VT and the 20VT are fare easier to tune that an Alfa V6 as well, with 300bhp and more being fairly easy to obtain.

You will never be cool driving a Vauxhall.
