The project is, to turn my dead 156 1.6 into a monster.
some of the things to happen are :
OZ tourismo wheels
GTA body kit
brembo big brake kit
lower suspension
respray
q2 diff
fiat coupe 20v turbo engine.
Lots more smaller less significant things also.

What we think?

Thanks Josh

Save your time and hassle and buy a GTA. It'll always hold its value better than a modified 156 and will be a better car.

Well id say a 156 handles so much better than a coupe, and i cant afford a gta, but i would much prefer to have a project, seems though it is a buggered car and i would prefer to have a turbo engine plus the 20vt engine has alot of tuning potential. It WILL be good.

sounds good to me, and different, a 156 with a 5pot PETROL engine, sounds like an excellent idea:thumbs:

good luck:D:thumbs:

whats the point in doing something and having no problems what so ever isnt that part of the fun, then 20vt engine drops straight in, same layout as the JTD engine i think iv spoken to a bloke from torque italia he knows what the deal is.

just thought I'd change the order for you ;)

brembo big brake kit
fiat coupe 20v turbo engine.
q2 diff
lower suspension
OZ tourismo wheels
GTA body kit
respray


personally though I'd go without the bodykit ... keep the car looking more standard (even the 1.6 badge :lol:) and you'll certainly cause some surprised

yeah i was thinking about the serious sleeper look, but it needs new rear bumper and front bumper aint too good either.
