Re: 146 2.0 ti - loss of power
I'm having a bit of an issue with my 146ti - 1999 CF2 engine, it comes 'on cam' at 3.5k-4k and again at 6.5k in second, 5.5k in 3rd and above - but feels a bit flat getting to 5.5k and then it really takes off for whats left up to the redline. I'm sure that its picking up more than it should do, but not having driven any other TS engines alfas (I've had 2 33 P4s in the past - should have stuck to boxer engines!) I don't know if this is totally normal. The engine note changes considerably when it kicks at 5.5/6.5k.
A couple of people on the 145 forum have suggested that its likely to be the TPS causing the problem, this was replaced a couple of months ago by AlfaWorkshop, but on Alfadiag, I've never been able to get it to show full throttle, only idle, or part throttle, and the reading shows 82%. Suggestions?
