  1. How much 2.0 JTDm F40 drivetrain can handle?

    Tuning & Upgrades
    I have 159 1.9 JTDm 16V with swaped F40 gearbox. It uses driveshafts, gearbox and engine mounts from 2.0 JTDm. Currently building GTB2060 hybrid and planning to reach 300HP/600NM (currently 260HP/505NM with GT1756). Will driveshafts handle that much of torque? Is there any uprated driveshafts...

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    My 2.0 GTV has done 144k. The engine feels pretty fit still but is due belts and making variator-like noises from the top end, and while not smoking or leaking is using plenty of oil, by which I mean maybe 1lt/500 miles. Additionally the synchros are crunchy on 4th and 5th, and the clutch...
