After following the Clogz and jbsmith1 thread I thought I'd give it ago on a 159. Must point out that I've had a great deal of help from Clogz by way of photos and support in person and by email. Big thanks.
Having had a oil pump failure and having to pull most of the bottom end of the engine apart to fix it, it gave me a great excuse to go the whole hog.
So It was time to start everything off with the Alfatune F1 remap / DPF / EGR Deleat. But starting with a high milage 06 159 it showed a few small issues. All the cars faults may I add.
Theres been a lot of work done getting the car ready from new intake manifold, DMF and clutch, why not while the engine was in bits, new exhausts cam due to failed rocker which took out the oil pump, swopping out the turbo to the newer Garrett cause Clogz had upgraded his to a huge new one, Koni suspension and Novitec srpings, AEM W/M injection, Alfatune De cat pipe, EBC discs and red stuff pads and the pier de la resistance the RS500 60mm intercooler upgrade.
This was finished off today by the Aflatune exhaust. Gus also refined the F1 map to take advantage of all the above.
The result is I now have a car that went like a train, to a car that goes like a Saturn 5 rocket, but with no smoke.
Big thanks to Clogz, jbsmith1 and Gus at Alfatune.
Anyone who has watched any of these threads or contemplated a Alfatune remap, the icing and sprinkles on the cake was the exhaust today. The answer is simple. Roll up your sleeves bite the bullet and go for it, my face is still hurting from the grin. You get what you pay for.
Big thanks to all of the above.
