Early 156 ECU prog
Recently bought a late 1998 156 2ltr ts, very low mileage,show room condition. Generally pleased with the vehicle but a little disappointed with the performance. Two questions. I have heard that there was an ECU prog update/change issued by Alfa some months after the 156 went on sale, albeit not issued as a recall, but downloaded FOC into customers cars ECU's who complained of poor performance. Is there any truth in this? Secondly, should one feel the effect of the cam timing change and at what speeds and in what gears. Any information appreciated, then I can tackle the local Alfa dealer knowing what the performance should be like and whether I need to tackle Alfa direct.
