Like. Autolosse siad best option in a brand new I/m. No question, but a cheaper option must me to remove the s/f completely, plenty of people have done just they on BMWs 2 and 3 Lt diesels.
However alfa,s don,t have a bad rep for this problem. I believe the alum manifolds have plastic flaps that don,t ruin the engine when they break, but the later black plastic M, have metal flaps that ruin the inside of youe engine if ?????? They break off. E.o.t.day your choice. As for the kit comtact the makers and ask for one more plug,or get a metal m/c shop to make up some or get them alayy welded in.
