Alfa 145 2.0 need help

Hi all, i need help! i have just bought my alfa 145 2ltr and am confused if its a Quadrafolglio or not. I read that a normal ts has 150 bhp and the quadra thingy has 155 bhp. mine is yellow and has cloverleaves all over it.
The reason for my question is that im looking for parts and i cant tell the difference.

Next question is... I have a induction kit on it and it has a crap halfrauds cone filter on it. The car jumps around like a kangaroo, i wish to change this. Should i...
1. keep the induction kit and buy a better filter by k&N or...
2. buy and original air box and get a panel filter.
Which is better?
Please help me Alfa guru's
Many thanks Jason

quadrifoglio means four leaf clover in italian so yes, you have a QV

would doubt the cone filter is the cause of your jumping around, likely culprit is the maf at a guess.

nice choice of car though

Thanks! i at least now know what i own.
I have changed the Mass air flow and it still does it. It feels like the car is choking. It bogs down then clears, its a intermittent problem.
your 16v sud looks great! i now know whats on my xmas list for the next 10 years!

I had same problem with intermitent flat spots. First check your red relays. You will find them under a black cover in front of battery. Give them a good clean then use contact cleaner before replugging and see if that works if not it could be:

Lambda sensor, stepper motor or split in rubber hose to throttle body.

As for the filter get the origional box back on and fit a K & N panel filter.
