Alfa Romeo 156 2.4 JTD Project

hey guys, thought id get a thread up and running to show the progress with the car, not much mind you but its something

currently im fitting a FMIC to the JTD, but earlier in the day i got my new D&G Discs on, the alfa was rather easy to work on surprisingly, all the bolts came out with ease.

heres a photo of one side http://i1167.photobucket.com/albums/...41202491_n.jpg

and heres a photo of the FMIC, pipe work is yet to be cut down to the right measurements.

http://i1167.photobucket.com/albums/...88408816_n.jpg

im slowly getting there, the rain didnt help at all. from 9am till around 3pm it was dry and sunny and this was just as i was removing the original intercooler which was caked in crap.

it then pee'd it down, not stopping me ofcourse i got on to removing the undertray and other plastic bits and bobs. and from 4pm on wards i got the FMIC mouted.

so thats about it really, i hope you guys feel you want to follow the thread, as i will be getting the pipework done tomorrow hopefully.

this is how she is at the mo.

When I fitted my FMIC I also removed the a/c system in its entirety - still though I had to remove the front fogs as the pipes would just not clear them. Space is tight behind that bumper, and re-fitting the bumper was the hardest part for me, everything else was fine.

ill get some pictures of the pipework up tomorrow, it has been abit of an annoying day, with the intercooler pipes blowing off only due to terrible jubilee clips.

i too had to take the fogs out aswell and the surrounding part. so looks a little empty mind you..but not everything will be straight forward.

I re-fitted the grilles that cover the foglamps, but not the foglamps themselves. The grilles needed a bit of trimming but I will use a bit of old speaker mesh to cover the holes so it doesn't look like its just missing foglamps

I'm happy enough to be without foglamps, I took the loom out too, its almost a kilo in weight in total I've now removed 48kg worth of crap from my engine bay and the car drive's so much better as a result. Still got to remove the twin rad fans and fit my lightweight one. Only thing is it looks noticeably higher at the front so might need to drop it a bit. Battery & tray is in the boot now, which puts another 20kg there but the 156 could do with being a bit better balanced anyway.

hey guys, just bought myself a Tim Boost gauge off fleabay, now having had a quick search on the forums on how to install, the best result was to drill into the throttle body after the intercooler pipes, now i dont fancy butchering my TB, because i now have a fmic, can i not drill into the Ally pipe just above the battery and get a boost reading from that ?

thanks for any help,
i wont be doing this until sunday anyway, so itd be good to have some idea before hand.

chris

hey guys, got the boost gauge all hooked up today, took long enough but just got there.

i really didnt wanna get those LED looking ones, i just fancied a nice clean simple looking one, which i think goes quite nicely in the alfa interior.

heres a photo of it. http://i1167.photobucket.com/albums/...39815152_n.jpg

at the moment, its running 1.6/1.7 bar on overboost then drops down to 1.2/1.3 constant.
this is with FMIC, Airfilter and a italian tuning box(i might be taking it off).

thats about it really

chris.
