2.0 or 3.0v6?
Just been reading a thread in the general discussion forum about the best 4 pot engines, which got me wondering about Alfa's V6 compared to the 2.0 TS. In the past i had a 2.0 zetec mondeo and found this engine crisp and very punchey out of the corner,also overtaking in third gear was great happy to rev to the limit and never seemed to run out of power,a great engine for B roads.I then changed the car for the ST24 with the 2.5 V6 Duratec engine, but found that whilst it was very smooth and apparently faster it felt LAZY heavey into the corners and no punch comming out the other end.I am now the proud owner of a 2002 Alfa GTV 2.0 TS and again this engine is fantastic, loves to rev punchy superb on B roads and the noise it makes just encourages you to collect points.So i am now wondering having never driven Alfa,s 3.0V6 what it is like, is this engine more of a motorway cruiser? although faster on paper dose the smoothness of the engine mask performance???
