Re: rolling road
EGR is Exhaust Gas Recirculation. I believe that an easy tweek is to disconnect this valve so that exhaust gas will not enter the inlet side on closed throttle. This valve is purely to allow the engine to burn cleaner under certain conditions. I have not tried to diisconnect the EGR valve on a Alfa engine yet, so I can't verify the results, but I'm told it will improve engine responsiveness (likely) and increase power (unlikely I think).
I think that the valve may have been sticking open on your car.
Which rolling road did you visit and how much?
One last thing- any engine will show more with new spark plugs. Typically 5-10 BHP. This will only last for a few minutes though.
