Brera 2.2 JTS to increase power?

Is there any way to increase 2.2 brera JTS's Hp and performance to 0-100 ?

0-100 is the most important part for me.

Is it possible ?

There is no quick and easy solution for power increases on N/A engines, if you want to increase power you're going to have to go down the route of good old fashioned N/A engine tuning just like any other.

If you want a sprint car for quarter miles and such like then you want to be looking at weight saving and stripping excess weight fro the car wherever possible too, depends on how far you want to take it.

There was once upon a time an autodelta supercharger kit available for the JTS motors, was around 5.5k if you wanted it mind, however not sure if that is still available.

Exhaust and air intake mods, along with a remap (inc upped rev limit in 1st)
can push the 2.2 nearer the 200BHP mark which is the sweet spot for the Brera/159 imho.

Talk to Autodelta.

As Artemis says if money is no option the Autodelta supercharger is the ultimate upgrade for this engine.

The other alternative is to look for a 1750 which could have more remappability...

ALFA 159 1.9 JTS

I got iridium plugs fitted , pipercross air filter & it noticeable removed the 'hesitancey' it had at really low revs , also really made it a lot smoother and more responsive , I am currently sitting waiting on my twin exit stainless steel exhaust being fitted as we speak , hopefully to release even more horses ( bearing in mind my 159 is only the 1.9 jts) , all good and cheap as chips to modify
