Wave jts vs ts

hi all,
i`m new on here but i am a long term alfa romeo driver , my experience is only really of cars i have owned , currently a 156 2.0 jts which i`ve had almost 2 years now , previous to that i had a 147 2.0 lusso for 3 years , i`m interested in opinions of the 2 engines , the jts is more torquey for sure but i find it lacks the fizz of the ts , and mine was a 2002 so was euro (5)? compliant so relatively `strangled` for emissions , the jts for all the claims is no more economical than the ts , overall i find the jts quite an ordinary engine , it does have an unusual hesitation at around 5000rpm , it revs fine to the redline though , has anyone experienced this? i`ve had an opinion it may be slight wear on bottom end shells , previous owner was low mileage & had regular oil changes but was defintely not using correct oil .
i had oil changed with the correct selenia racing 0w60 last year and oil consumption far less than with the wr 5w40 we used when i got the car , not sure why.
like all alfa romeos i`ve had car definitly runs better on premium 97 fuel
