Hey all, looking into buying an altezza as I have had some interest for quite awhile now. On here to hopefully further my knowledge on everything there is to know about it so I don't get scammed when looking at some. I found one for sale but curious to ask is there such thing as a 1.9 turbo beams motor? I've been looking for the rs200 as it is advertised as one of the better motors. Just hoping to get some feedback on how to tell if it's an actual rs200 motor and not a knock off of the as200. Thanks guys hope to post a photo of my new vehicle very soon!!

there was no 1.9 altezza, nor a 1.9 beams motor as far as i'm aware. if it's an altezza and not 2.0, something is wrong, unless they are rounding down (1998cc -> 1.9 instead of up to 2.0!)

the rs200 is a 3sge and can usually be identified from looking at the bay
