Hello Everyone

Hi Everyone,

Been lurking on here for a while but I thought it's about time I introduced myself. I'm James from Reading and I've been an Afisti since I my dad had a lovely Alfa Sud 1.5 Ti when I was a young boy. I've had two Alfa's myself a beautiful phase 2 Zoe yellow 145 1.6 ts and I'm currently driving a phase 2 146Ti in Blu Vela 400. She's done 94k so far and still doesn't miss a bit she's not cosmetically perfect after some idiot scraped her when she was parked but the interior is mint and she doesn't look to shabby. I'll get some pics up once I've resized them or got them on to photobucket or something.

Looking at getting another Alfa now I find myself being on the road more and more with my job so I'm thinking of getting a 156 facelift 2.4 jtdm 20v and putting Koni FSDs with Eibach pro springs, a front mounted intercooler, full straight through stainless exhaust system including the manifold, hopefully a hybrid turbo if I can find one, remap to 250bhp, CDA air filter and a Q2 if it can be fitted or a similar quaife and a recirculation valve.

If any of you are familiar with tuning the JTD engine I would appreciate hearing from you if you have any other suggestions?
