Couldn't fit into a GTV s bought a 156!!!
I have just bought a 2001 156 2.5v6 58k FARSH Veloce and looking into ways of releasing a few more horses.
I heard a 3.0 GTV about a month ago and decided I wanted one!! Many many hours of trawling the web for info I put some cash in my pocket, drove a good hour to view a car and........ being 6'2" I didn't fit in!!!
I wanted to spend no more than 5k and wanted a sub 7 second car so the 3.0v6 GTV fitted the bill perfectly. I was gutted when I realised I couldn't have one.
I have now bought a 2.5v6 156 and am gradually warming to it more and more each time I drive it. However, although it's no slouch I feel (and it sounds like) it could be a bit quicker??
If anyone can advise on sensible mods it would be most appreciated.
I'm thinking along the lines of Filter, Exhaust, re-map. Not Turbo Charging and such like.
Also any info on on general things on the 156 would be appreciated. i.e. common faults etc.
Thanks in advance,
