Re: Peculiar smoking JTD
Thanks for the responses, I may (after new year) take it into the workshop that angel tuning use as it is near me and get them to try and work it out.
It was smoking when Nigel came to do the remap (it already had another map on it) and still smoked when he put the stock alfa map on it, although it is hard to see how smoky it is on the drive by revving the engine as it is most noticeable under load.
A removal of the map may be the answer, but I want to rule out other things before hand so I haven't wasted several hundred quid on that (yes I know I may be wasting money elsewhere).
I will though have to spend some time under the bonnet and look at all the pipes (intercooler to manifold is definately OK as it is new).
I am not sure how you check the intercooler easily without being able to pressure test it.
I will double check the pre-intercooler pipe as it is a bit oily but have been told that is due to the construction of the pipe used.
As for a boost gauge: how, what, where, apart from having seen them glued to the dashboard of Jap imports, I wouldn't know what to do with one.
