a Question

why did alfa not fit the JTS engine to the 147? If it fitted under the 156 bonnet it would have fitted the 147 one? It would have meant more sales to people who diddnt want a diesel? anyone know????

I thought they did in the facelift version ... could be wrong though ...

edit: I am wrong ... but tbh the JTS and TS are virutally the same engine (although the TS does seem to produce slightly more power)

The JTS cost a lot more to produce than the TS.

The TS is a better engine anyway IMO.
