Well the JTS as quoted
The JTS engine debuted in 2002 in the Alfa Romeo 156. The engine was based on the 2.0 Twin Spark, replacing Twin Spark with direct injection, dubbed "Jet Thrust Stoichiometric". This improved power from 114 kW (155 PS; 153 hp) to 121 kW (165 PS; 162 hp), but more importantly, torque climbed from 187 N·m (138 lb·ft) to 206 N·m (152 lb·ft). In 2003, this engine was introduced to the GTV/Spider coupé and roadster. In spite of its benefits to power, torque and economy, the JTS was not used in the smaller 147 or the larger 166, and much less in other models from the Fiat Group. This was allegedly because the JTS engine cost a lot more to produce than the Twin Spark.
I had a 2ltr Jts in my 156 Ti which was also 2004 (and it was Miles on the ODO) I had a 1.6 TS and also the 2ltr TS and preferred the JTS to be honest . It seemed quicker but it was the torque figure of 143 ( Rolling Road) that made it fel quicker . TBH I never had any problems with the Jts but it seems others may have had . If that GT has 158 Miles on it its not worth it ..
