Re: 156 2.4 JTD stuff
hello. Im on my second 2.4 both 150's first one silver, this one black. they do sound fab. warble really nicely! my dad had a 10v 2.4 but has changed to a 20v 175. its a complete monster but doesnt sound as nice. but wow does it fly! my better half has a 05 330d convertable and dads eats it after 60mph! much to emmas annoyance as she(we!) spent 36k on it and the 20v was a bargain at 18k!
but back to your thread, yes there shoud be like a shaped tunnel from the bumper to the intercooler that directs air over it callerd the air-air heat exchanger i think. and no, there has never been any mesh on any of our Alfa diesels in that hole.
Enjoy your car. i adore mine(and emma is taking mine out increasingly more too, maybe she should change for a spider 2.4?) will work on her!
'07 GT Blackline JTD, but a 159TI 2.4 on its way very shortly!
