hello everyone, scottish 147 owner here

hello all, i was a member on here before as RED1,albeit briefly (due to having to blag a shot of my bro's pc ). Now im hooked up i should be on more frequently. I drive an 03 alfa red 147 jtd which sits on a set of 17" GTA multispokes and is boosted with a CRD tuning box. Ive had the car near 2 years now and enjoy driving it, probably more now than when i first got it. Although its had a few gremlins, its been a good servant and should be here for another year or two. I did appear at a meet in kelso 12-18 months ago, and had lunch with the hardy souls who turned up, so remember a few names. sorry bout the name change but it wouldnt let me in under my old handle.

Hello, welcome.
How long have you had the tuning box? What does it 'do'?

It plugs into the common rail an basically fools it into sending more fuel. A bit crude perhaps, but highly entertaining and good value for the £175 i paid for it. The difference is huge.The car now pulls wildly to redline at 4500rpm, before it was out of puff +pull over 3000-3500. Had it over a year, but needed new airflow meter recently possibly due to this.
