1.4 or t jet

Is there much difference in MPG between the 1.4 or the 2 t-jet engines.I am going to look at a 1.4 active.Does the t-jet have a dual mass clutch?

Thanks Shaun

Re: 1.4 or t jet

MPG is not much difference, but 90HP atmo vs. 120HP t-jet, seems to me like 60HP hehe
Yes, t-jet has DMF, but lasts longer than on diesel engines

Re: 1.4 or t jet

Thanks Mike the 1.4 i am going to see is in metallic red and it looks lovely.The car has only 44000 miles but i would prefer the t jet.Anything i should look out for,i see there can be gearbox problems on the t jet is it a different box on the 1.4.I have read about the clip on the the back of the clutch pedal

Re: 1.4 or t jet

Mine t-jet have 170 000km on the clock, no gearbest issues.
If t-jet sad driving hard and careless, cracked turbo manifold can be problem.
Dual zone climate can be also problem due cracked flap plastics,

44000mi on clock, thats almost New car

Re: 1.4 or t jet

You should consider the multiair one too, 140 HP with bags of torque

Re: 1.4 or t jet

The M32 gearbox gets a bad rap for being unreliable, but it's only unreliable with overtuned engines. It can only handle a certain amount of power/torque and anything over those limits will blast it to shreds. If it wasn't reliable on a stock engine, manufacturers wouldn't use it.
And yes, I'm fairly sure the MA version was sold in this country, they certainly used it in the Giulietta which is basically the same car.
Thanks farmer.palmer thanked for this post

Yes, a few of the later bravos were in 140 BHP guise. I don't believe very many were sold though.

Re: 1.4 or t jet

Just bought a 2009 1.4 petrol with 40,000 miles for 3000.I know it is over priced but it is in superb condition and in the colour i wanted.I am wondering if i can put a bluetooth audio dongle in the back of the head unit.

Re: 1.4 or t jet

Yes, you can.
You'd be better off getting an mini-iso to AUX cable to the glovebox (for when you need to power it off/on or pair something with it), you also need some power to it.
