Help 1997 Spider Tuning Options


Firstly can i say i am not a boy racer!

Im after your opinion on a good way (reliable) way of tuning my 2.0 TS engine. Chip, induction kit and exhaust should give me another 25 - 30 bhp.

Ive owned the car for three years and fancy a little more grunt now ive stuck new Alfa TI rims on!

1. Engine remap.
2. BMC CDA induction kit.
3. Through flow exhaust (maybe decat after mot )
4. Ferrodo brake pads.

Bank on +25bhp.

erm, that should get you started....

~£800 me thinks.

I'm getting a remap and CDA in a few months time for my Spider. Angel are coming to me to do the work again.

Re: 1997 Spider Tuning Options

A guy on the Alfa 145 forum has 145 QV fitted with Performance exhaust, Columbo and Birani fast road cams, panel air filter and a custom chipped/mapped ecu and he has Rolling roaded at 180BHP (At the flywheel). This is about the limit unless you wish to spend serious money.

As the Spider is the same engine you can reckon on the same gains. The C&B cams are around 600 IIRC.
