Getting to know my 1999 166 2.0TS by now and have added a 96 GTV 2.0TS to the family now also.
Thing is, my 166 is really not revving well at all. Did a very crude 0-60 test the other day, downhill!!! Came in about 15 seconds
Anyway, I have been reading here and suspect the MAF but also reckoned an ECU reset was a simple thing to try. Did that last night and it made very little difference at all
The thing is, I got a GTV on Friday and its the same engine and ok, I know its a smaller car, but it leaves the 166 WAY out there, so now at least I know I am not dreaming
Been looking around for prices on the MAF for my 166 and I need to identify my engine first. It has a plastic rocker cover, so its not a CF1, but I cant seem to make out the difference between a CF2 and CF3 going on this here http://www.alfaworkshop.co.uk/alfa_romeo_cf.shtml
Mine doesnt really look like either, but then again it kinda looks similiar to both!!!
Also, I got a great idea to swap the GTV one into the 166 to prove once and for all its the MAF, but the GTV has an alloy rocker cover so it seems its a different MAF and I couldnt swap them around?? Or am I wrong here?
Look forward to any help thanks
