AUTODELTA'S compressor kit..........FINE AT LAST.

Hi guys..............
Happy last.
My service just phone telling me my 166 compressor by AUTODELTA runs fine....
Jano told my service put the car in the Examiner, to correct the alarms,revs....etc.
This envening pass the examiner and......miracle...runs perfect,estable...fine...very fine.
At this moment can't test my car because service is far from a few days will be mine.
Thanks for all, guys for your opinions....I think the only problem with Autodelta is his indiosincrase.......overseas....and in my opinion comunication would be better and quick.....but, doesn´t matter, car runs perfect.
Tomorow will be pass a Dyno Test to check the final power and torque.

See you.....

Perhaps a bit irrelevant for this forum, but i just wanna share it with you guys.. i just had the most stimulating experience in my life... my knees are still shaking. I just returned from a test drive of a ..495Bhp machine... you dont believe it eh?... i didnt either at the beginning..

there is this guy,a friend's cousin who is toyota racing team expert, and keeps a mod garage at afternoons, he just took us for a ride with his partner's turboed Celica.. when we saw the car we laughed, me and my friend, Italian-maniacs watching a Celica with huge spoilers and exhaust like a ship's funnel.. he got pis.sed off and asked us to get in..

i just realised that some experts can do anything they want if they work seriously. 2.0lt 20valve turboed engine (japanese version) with programmable turbo pressure, different pressure for each gear, special electronic fuel management systems and other electronic parts i didnt understand much... the interior was full of extra instruments all over the dash..

when we saw the Dyno plot we said "no way"!
i will tell you only this: the (18") wheels were spinning even with 4th gear..
we never had the chance to test the 5th.....
what a torque!! i still cant believe it.
i was watching the rev meter and after 4000 it jumped to 8000 in milliseconds!

we raced a Suzuki GSXR 1100... it seemed like a DR250cc

done 40.000km till now with no problems except 2 broken gearboxes, not from the power but from drivers mistake (too hurry to change gear without proper clutching), and a twisted axle-shaft.

they themselves cant believe that the car body and mechanical parts can handle this power.. (and we make fun of those japs)

I asked him of course how much does it cost and he told me to forget it, they have no intention to give 500bhp to any customer, its like giving a full gun to a kid.

And no mods for my 147, "i dont touch something i havent studied" he said..

ah.. he hates Audi's also, like us wink
i wont forget the face of that poor S3 driver who just ate the dust of an ugly jap Celica

i love those turbos.. but i m dreaming a compressor for my bella.. who knows, maybe one day i ll make same posts here as Dre does..

sorry for the big post... i hope u understand me

That's great gigi... Very happy for you things turned out O.K.

... and Jomor, go for the compressor
Maybe you can work something out with your dealer, like he will get the course and certificate and you get the compressor for a reduced price, that's how I did it...

My service just phone me........... my alfa runs good, but with a little problem at 6200 rev in 5th gear...........alarm injectors, but Jano says is very easy to correct with the EXAMINER....they're testing it........must wait a little..........I'm very excited and nervous to test my car myself........but my service tells me be need tests,,,,,,and better wait some days all system will be perfect, and without little problems....
Also next week will fit a new exhaust and a longer 5Th gear.........but when all the system will be OK

See you............
