159 1750 Ti

1742 cc -big project - 159ti help..

Hello my friends,

I just bout the new (2012) 159 turbocharged tbi Ti, and I'd like some help from you guys because this is my first big project.

The things I want to upgrade - below:

1. Better exhaust sound (as similar to the v6 I had but not to noisy).

2. Raising the power until 250 bhp (chip/remap/anything else?)

3. How's the engine react to all those changings Is it safe? Or I need to switch some original parts as we'll to "survive" the power?

I'll be glad to get some answers because I'm new in this and don't want to do any mistakes there's so Many company's and tuning sites that I'm confusing- and I thought the best answers will come from some alfa owners that know the tbi engine..

Thank you very much

i think there are a couple of slight difrences between the 1750 in the 159 & the GQV (smaller turbo in the 159 think?) but i have a little project going on my GQV, here's the thread if you want to have a look

One major setback on tuning the 159 tbi is the gearbox i think. Its max torque is rated at 320 nm, which is the stock numbers.

So any kind of modifications that increase torque, could result in problems with gearbox.

IWhat i am going to do with my brera tbi, are the above.
Full exhaust system included new downpipe and new metallic hjs catalyst (probably the most important part to change is the downpipe)
New airfilter at the airbox
remap the ecu at the ALFATUNER (Gus)

all of these changes will increase the horsepower at 40+ , and of the car will be more pleasant to drive.
