it seems Alfa's in general are a bit fragile when it comes to modding and maintaining...
I have not had one bit of work done yet that didn't uncover or by a tenuous link, cause another issue.
did an oil service and air filter at the weekend and there was an air leak literally straight after the car was started up after the service..
I obviously started looking for a problem around the air box to begin with as that's the area where things were disturbed....But
the problem was at the engine end..! tiny tear in the upper turbo hose, working theory is it was on its way out anyway and the new clean air filter (old one was filthy) finished it off.
my point is, its funny how disturbing things on these cars brings other issues to a head..
had a swirl flap delete done yesterday at autolusso, and was dreading the ''come and have a look at this'' moment from one of the Lads..
luckily all good and she is running sweet as a nut with a new silicone upper hose and no swirl flaps!
