Help Tuning

I own a 147 ts 1.6. What would you advise so as to increase boost and power in my stock model. I was reading about power chips which are quite costly compared to mapping. How much BHP increase would my stock engine have if re-mapped and at what octane levels?

Please dont think im being rude - but if you want more 'go' you would probably find it better just buying a 1.8 or 2.0 model As i cant imagine theres much power to be squeezed out of the 1.6 ?? But i could be wrong and apologies for not providing any technical information, just my honest thoughts

Alfa 166

Air Intake
2.0l Cams
and remap

Cheap mods should not cost more than £400 all inc
Should see you getting over 135hp.

The 1.6 is already in quite a high state of tune for a road going 1.6.
Always cheaper to do an engine swap. 2.0 engine swap 150hp would cost £600.


Sell 1.6 buy 2.0l and probably most cost you more than £200 swapping details on insurance etc.
