Hi guys, i havent posted up in a while as i have been out of area...but i am looking at spending some money on my 03 2.0 147....purely engine...

I have been told by various mates to get it chipped, get a tune up and get the ECU remapped...but i thought id ask you guys as theres probabally a fair few of you have have dones this sort of stuff to your cars!

Get the car remapped,take off the head and get it enlarged,get a set of fast road cams and adjustable cam pulleys too.

Then fit a free flow full exhaust system and a better filter and you are on the way to 180+bhp.
Also fit a 1.6 ratioed box and you will get faster acceleration but you will lose a bit of top end speed.

Alfa twinspark 2 litre cylinder head enlarging/machining.

If you are in the UK (you don't have a location in your profile), give Alfatune a call. They are on here, user name "Alfa Tuner".

Might be worth posting an approximate budget, so people know how to advise you...
