2.2 JTS Upgrades
So, I'm out of the running for a 4C as we're buying a new house etc etc.
So what can I do to juice up my 2.2 even more? I really like the car with its K&N induction, Red Dot map and Vortex catback, Eibachs and Pioneer stereo. It's really well balanced, planted, grippy and pulls surprisingly well. But if I'm going to be keeping it for another 5 years or so I want to investigate what else can be done to it.
Don't bother saying buy a V6 or a 2.4, I'm not into them for track work as I don't like the weight and balance.
I'm not all that down with the idea of stripping it out, as it is a thing of beauty and the wife and I still do fast motorway journeys in it (when we're without the kids).
The car doesn't do many miles (about 3000 a year tops), and it is mostly for Alfa runs and track giggles. It's not used for commuting or any regular use so it doesn't have to be utterly dependable (though I don't want to make it unreliable either, as then people will bang on about how sh*t Alfas are). It's the only car I ever bought new and it's in great condition, so I like the idea of hanging on to it.
Has anyone bored out a 2.2?
Anyone yet supercharged one? I know supercharging could lead to a blown head. Hmm.
Anything in between? Any other suggestions?
