1.9 JTD manual or Qtronic?
Hi guys, I'm looking for a 159 diesel but not sure which gearbox to go for. My plan is to modify the car a little. Can qtronic handle extra power and torque after mods like chip tuning, exhaust system and perhaps an intercooler + turbo upgrade? A modest estimate would be 200-220hp and plenty of torque after these mods so I'm not sure if Qtronic will be up to the job. Is it the same qtronic in the 200hp 2.4litre version?
For example tuning companies claim 200hp for BMW 3.20d and as far as I know the automatic versions with chip tuning run with no problems. Is this the case with Alfa 159?
