Help Andrew Semmens Alfa GT


I have recently purchased a 2008 Alfa GT 3.2 litre V6. I am a motor mechanic by trade and have had the check engine light come on. Upon removing fault codes i have found out the rear bank catalytic converter is at fault. I would like to know if anyone knows where i can purchase a genuine Alfa catalytic converter at a reasonable price. I live in Adelaide Sth Australia. Is it worth buying one overseas and having it transported or is there somewhere in Adelaide i can get one that won't cost me the earth or are after market ones any good? I also want to replace the differential with the upgraded Q2 diff and replace the timing belt for my own piece of mind. I also need to source these from somewhere. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I was not an Alfa fanatic before but after purchasing this vehicle i am know converted, i love it.

Welcome to AO

Great to see another Aussie Living in South Australia may limit your options, however post your comment in the GT technical lounge as you will more then likely receive your answer.

Salute, Giordano.
