What can be done to a 2.5 V6 busso 24v ?

So, first i wanna say hello and thanks for accepting me in thia forum/club. I have know it for quite some time but i decided to join in. Anyways i have a 156 sportwagon with the 2.5 v6 and its the q-system one. So far love the car (no suprise my dad said i was gonna be in love with it being an alfa fan too). And this is our 3rd alfa in the family but since most of my friends drive JTDs they always talk about hp and what they are gonna do and are doing to their cars. What my question is what can i do so that i can increase the HP on the car ? Dont suggest swap a 3.0 😄 its just not viable for me. I have heard that you can put 3.2 gta parts in it but dont know anything more on this. So if you guys can give me some advise, it would be cool.
Thanks in advance 🙂

try to keep the engine spinning between 5000-6500 rpm (not that easy with the 4-speed Q-system I know) and you'll be fine. Enjoy!

Let the diesel fellas do boost remaps etc, but they get all their power by 3000 rpm, where is the fun in that?

Enjoy it for what it is. It is in quite a high state of tune already, and making it more powerful by changing cams etc is likely to make it even more peaky.

With the 4 speed auto I don't think that would really work too well.

A nice exhaust such as a Wizard or Raggazon will help it sing a bit more loudly.
