Sorry for the thread hijack

I wrote up the pursuit three months after I retired so no need to declare it to PIU (Performance Improvement Unit, previously known as PSD - Professional Standards Department and oft known as 'Rubber Heelers' because you never hear them sneaking up behind you).

Anyway, back to cars. I'd seriously consider an Alfa V6 motor. 2.5 16v is close to 200bhp, sounds glorious, is mounted transverse on a manual gearbox and has a certain caché to it.

Can be a cheap option too if it's sitting in a rusty 156, this one's under £600 -
