Alfa 159 Ti

Im getting my car remapped tomorrow

Well,

Ive had the car approximately 3 weeks and already im getting the remap for it lol.

Ive got a 159 ti 1.9 JTDM and im booked in with AHM motorsport first thing tomorrow to get the fury unleashed.....so to speak!

Looking forward and intrigued to how different the car will be afterwards.

I shall keep you all updated in due course.

No ive decided not to have the dpf and egr removed.

A. it was alot more expensive and only gave 20bhp more, and
B. read on here from a few others that it can cause issues which id like to avoid.

Should be alot better nonetheless.

Removing the DPF is far more than just the headline power increase, the car drives so much better without it, mpg is improved, more lower down grunt due to less restrictions.

Plus you won't incur the all too common DPF issues all diesel Alfa suffer from, I had mine removed and never looked back.

Got the car back yesterday and I have to say I am very pleased with the results. The car is soooo much better on the lower end and doesnt feel heavy any more. It has really good pull now which makes driving this already amazing car even better! Big smiles and a big thanks to aidy at AHM motorsport...Top job!
