Re: engine swap fiat bravo td to jtd

Is your TD old and tired or are you looking for a minor upgrade?

If old and tired as above you'll need a complete donor and in my opinion the JTD isn't as steady as the older unit.

If you're looking to upgrade there is plenty you can do to your existing engine...


...before you raid the barbecue supplies.

instead of an engine that basically is cranked by an battery, which in turn then sucks its own fuel and pushes out it's own waste gasses,

you want to install a version that needs a computer and LOTS of sensors to do the same thing

YES - it's potentially CLEANER.. but VERY complex by comparison.

I'd rather have my 1910cc TD ( tipo)

than my 1905 CC JTD ( Marea)

Re: engine swap fiat bravo td to jtd

oh, i am the complete opposite Charlie!

My TD100 was a slug in comparison to the JTD, i get 300km per tank extra from the car with the JTD upgrade, which is reason alone to prefer it. The ECU is so much more informative, the engine is quieter, has virtually no knock (a little at startup) the power curve is smooth and is low on torque at below 1800rpms, which protects the big end bearing when low down in the rev range.
The TD100 was smelly, noisy, inefficient, smoked like a 1950s chimney, and was so unrefined, even a john deere felt smug against it. It grunted from low down and surged violently through 1800 to 2800 but did nothing much any higher.

each to their own i suppose.

Alfa 2.4 JTD?

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/alfa-romeo-2-4-jtd-/352073156026?hash=item51f93205ba:gdoAAOSwYvFZGFZ H

I had the pleasure of racing one against a 147 GTA

Kept up with it up to 80-ish mph and started to pull it back around 110-120 before running out of legs.

Those bits in a Bravo shell has serious potential.
