J2 Gtv, Alfapash and Seadart, I hear what you are all saying but as I see it (currently), I have two options if I go down the TS route 1) a rebuilt engine, with Autolusso's guarantee 2) an engine with unknown history.
Currently, my preferred option is 2, I see Autolusso have a couple of units for sale. If I can get a replacement engine for around £350, then even if I only get a year of motoring out of it, the investment would be worth it to me.
What I cannot justify is spending £1,200 on an engine (sorry Ned) and given that the price of fuel is going up next year, I would be more likely to consider spending more money and buy a diesel.
A diesel engine in a Gtv would just be wrong, wouldn't it......?
