Re: Messing with a 166
Nice car and welcome to the Alfa owning fraternity although you should be well accustomed to Italian build after the Dedra. We now need pics of your Italian bella.
You can very easily get 200 BHP as I have a friend in Barcelona who has a Novitec franchise and gets a shy over 200 with his TS after installing a Novitec compressor. It's a low preassure thing and is not the new generation gear which is better so you could be looking at more power from a the latest systems. They're also quieter, almost undetectable. He's had his for 3 years and has done many track days with his car. Reliability has not been an issue, Novitec spend thousands on R&D (and then Autodelta copy their stuff) so they know what they're doing. The latest GTA's produce 350 BHP once run in (about 1000 kms). Novitec do a full line of shocks and springs too and then you can always fit a set of Zender Sienas which look fantastic on the 166.
