Thumbs Up Saga nearing an end!!!

ok to sum up what was supposed to be a normal engine swap turned into the biggest nightmare i have ever encountered! this week that damn egr valve was cleaned (and the crap that was inside was amazing! it was just blocked!) no wonder the air wasnt getting through. then i figured this would end the bloody injection light coming on when the car was thrashed but no. diagnostics done and boost pressure sensor error, ok so fix the cheapest thing first which was the map sensor. ordered the part and today i swapped them over and even the old map was blocked to hell! new map in and viola NO INJECTION LIGHT AFTER 3500RPM
Now all thats left is the clutch and new turbo pipes as im still losing air from them. Im hoping by the end of the month the car will be as good as new. But i would like to thanks all of the people that helped me through-out the months with my bella, if it wasnt for you guys i think i would have given up fixing it and just bought another Alfa. So again thank you

Get them pipes done asap or you'll be cleaning the EGR and changing the MAF again in no time
