Just wondering what you would advise me to do. I have a 156 2.0 TSpark, and am curious as to what I can get done to increase HP, speed, etc. I am talking fairly simple, not too expensive mods, as I am not loaded, and am not a mechanic.
I presume Airfilter will be mentioned, however, can I do this myself, or do I have to pay someone. Things like that.

Or visit the Alfaowner Shop where you'll find the Autodelta mods at the same price.

Try it.

Hi Is1ldur,
Re airfilter checkout: 156 Intake Mod
This is a very low cost mod (approx 12Euros + cost of filter element).
Part number for the intake tube is: 60630490
It isn't mentioned in this article but there is also a tube that passes down the centre of the filter element, inside the airbox, this tube can also be left out.
(Autodelta will charge you about 120 for this!)

For exhaust, the cheapest stainless steel rearbox is probably from Magnex: Magnex 156 Rearbox

I wouldn't modify any car just for the sake of modifying. Ask yourself what you want from it. More power? Firmer ride and stability? Improved looks? Better stopping power? Things like that.

Then you can list out the parts you need, and may be prioritize them.

For me, it was the suspension travel that needed to be reduced. My car (and most 156 in Thailand) was having problems negotiating bridges and uneven roads as the car would bottom out. (Some roads and !#%*! bridges we have here.) Then came the power improvement, and soon, Autodelta remapping.
