Just to throw a spanner in the works, I just bought a mag the other day which has an advert for Autodelta, offering 300bhp for the gtv - off the shelf, mags at work , but I think it involves a blower.
Going back to earlier posts re FWD v RWD.
These days most people are used to FWD, that makes it easier to drive if your used to it, I was brought up on and drove in RWD for many years, and it is better, if FWD was better then why are F1 rwd?
If I boot my 156 around an island I lose traction and steering (understeer) if I do that in a RWD car, I can balance the car on the throttle and the steering wheel, minimise the angle on the steering and get out the corner faster (oversteer - drifting).
If you compare low output cars the difference is much less marked, I drove a 55bhp Punto for years as I so disliked the feeling of being driven from the front.
Even now (and my 156 is the sweetest handling fwd I've driven -by some margin) I yearn for the poise and balance of RWD - But I don't want another BMW
