Popped my Alfa cherry

Evening all.
Just a quick hello from me. Now the proud owner of a 52 plate 156 2.0 JTS Tourismo.

Never owned an Alfa before. And picked this one up very cheap. Its very clean and un molested. 50k on the clock with 2 owners that spent a fortune on it.

first jobs will be a new stat and belts. Have worked on a gtv before and have been looking a friends 2.0 ts for a few years.

Am a bodyshop manager by day but have a fair bit of knowledge and i used to run my own tuning business having several cars featured and also building engines for the editor of revs .

Not sure what i will end up doing to this one.....but so far i have no big plans .

Just a little update. This Saturday i gave the alfa some love. Full belts change (exhaust cam was a few degrees retarded). New thermostat and cooling system flush. Oil and filter, throttle body clean and ecu reset.

What a difference. Idle is dead smooth and stable, and throttle response is much improved. Also a massive increase in mpg.

Then it was a deep clean and wax, and the rosso red is nice and shiney . Next weekend will be clay and mop time.

Then its time to start planning a few tweeks
