Thanks for the replies,
My alfa is a black 94 TS, but a previous owner has kitted it out like a Sport Pack, but it is not the wide track version. Ive tried to attach a picky of an identical car below. My car looks exactly the same (same bodykit), but I have 5 spoke black speedlines. It has a powerflow stainless exhaust, Eibach handling kit, koni adj. (rear) and a black momo racing line wheel. Interior is grey cloth. I bought it with a V low mileage a year or so back. I have not added a chip or a filter as I have been toying with the turbo idea.
I've never seen a reasonably priced Q4, and I think I could do this conversion MUCH more cheaply using a dead dedra. Secondly, my alfa's handling has already been sorted, its in near mint condition as it has a low mileage and it already has a large diameter exhaust.
What I'm looking for is for other guys who are familiar with the 155 to suggest potential problems that I perhaps haven't yet considered, before I embark on buying a scrap Dedra T and pulling it to bits. I don't think I would need to modify the trans tunnel as the gearbox on a 2wd dedra turbo looks to be similar to the ones on our cars.
Also, on the variator subject, can a faulty variator on a 2.0 8V cause a nasty rattle at idle?
hmm, can't work out how to attach the jpeg from my hard disk.....any suggestions?
