Performance Pointers

I am interested in doing small modifications to increase my cars power slightly.

My 2.0 147 already puts out 110kw (147.5 bhp) but I was wondering what minor mods I can make without creating problems for the car. I worry that if one does too much it may mess with the OBC or something of that nature.

Any pointers? Simple things that may boost power?

Was thinking of putting in some kind of nice exhaust kit (not too loud), any thoughts?

Hey Daniel, Welcome to AO, come post your questions in SA lounge:
South Africa - Alfa Romeo Forum

We in SA have less strict emission rules, so for extra power - remove the Catalytic converter out the exhaust 1st thing. That is about it on performance increase on a TS (unless you want to play with cams). You could add a high flow (K&N) filter, but no other induction mods bring much power gains, only added noise - if you like that kind of thing

EDIT: there is current thread going there: (Exhaust advice)
