Re: GTV diesel conversion

I've seen this one in the flesh too, Jayson fired it up for me when it was nearing completion, I was at his to get some 3.0 parts. This car actually started life as a 2.0 TS but it took donor parts from both the GTV 3.0 and 156 2.4 JTD to get it in its current state.

The only issues I would have with the car is:

1) How do you change the timing belt in situ - there is just plain no room.

2) How close is the sump to the floor. The 2.4 JTD is a lot taller an engine than the V6 or TS.

It's the 159's that have the 200+ bhp as standard ... (but they need it because they are so ig and heavy )
