Difficult to know where (an how - heh!) to stop following a remap.
The difference the remap makes is staggering isn't it? Hard to believe it's the same car, first thoughts are why didn't it leave the factory like this. Answer's simple, because 150hp is what the car can handle.
I too had the clutch slipping problems following my Red Dot remap (199hp 343ft/lb) over 2 years ago, finally (yesterday in fact) had the CG Motorsports Fast Clutch installed along with a Q2 Diff. My Indie said it might have been worth doing the DMF at the same time. Yeah, that and the brakes, suspension and God knows what else.
Haven't had a chance yet to go for a run to see what difference the Q2 makes or whether the slipping has been cured, but I can say the clutch pedal is now much lighter.
I would like to do the KONI/Eibach suspension upgrade the forum raves about, however I'm not a one-man solution to the economic crisis so it'll have to wait a bit.
Alfa could, of course, have done all this for us, but how much more would the car have cost?
All the best
