Giulietta cloverleaf 0-60 after remap.

Interested to see if anyone has an idea of what to expect from a remapped (280 or so) giulietta. Is the acceleration comparable to s3's or not quite?

Are we looking at 5.5seconds or is that too optimistic? The new QV does it in 6sec and is 240ps. I get that the gearbox is different but what difference does it make?

You wont be able to reduce this 0-60 time greatly without working on traction. For example bigger and better tyres. FWD cars will always have problems launching fast off the line.

But realistically you shouldn't be too caught up about 0-60 times. launching hard off the line causes expensive parts to bend

Thanks towney. Do u know of anyone that has remapped the Gqv and what sort of improvements are they getting. Tbh all im fussed about is having a fast fun to drive car. And not getting bullied by Audi and Bmw owners.

Yeah lots of people have had them mapped. Lots of tuning box options too.

Here are two well known tuning companies close to you,

Autolusso - Alfa Romeo Specialist | Alfa Romeo Servicing, Repairs and Modifications

Alfa Romeo Giulietta and Alfa 159 1750 TBi re-map, Ashington West Sussex | Monza Sports Tuning Ltd

I can personally vouch for moza as they did my mito, but lots of good reviews from autolusso too.

If you want a tuning box there are a few options,

Tuning Box for Alfa Romeo Guiletta 1.8 TBi QV 235 bhp

Alfa Romeo Giulietta 1.8 TBi 235PS 173KW 340NM

I have used both of these boxes and they are both very good. Use a box if you want to be able to remove it easily, go for a remap if you want the best results.

All companies quote different figures but expect about 260bhp with just a box//remap.

Previous, Mito QV, GQV

Current- BMW M135

If you want to go faster you need more grip, grip comes from tyres & suspension, and they can be greatly assisted by fitting a limited slip diff.

Autolusso do a Quaife diff for your car, you should give Ned a ring on 01582869560 to discuss. There is also a gearbox upgrade which can be done at the same time to help make it more reliable and fix a couple of inherent problems the C635 gearbox has.

Sinistah...I'm running -55mm all around and I've got 19" 235 tyres. I rarely spin the tyres and my launches are pretty good, so good that I need a new DMF soon.

The best timed launch in D mode at 4000rpm riding the clutch and hoping the eQ2 won't cut power too much is down to 6.2s 0-100km/h

The new GQV TcT will do that in 6.0 dead but if you watch that LC video long enough you'll see that stupid eQ2 still somehow cutting in and dropping that revs...LC works when you set LC at 4000rpm...and drop the clutch(let go off the brake pedal in TcT) and the revs are supposed to climb FROM...FROM 4000rpm...what the eQ2 does is it detects slip and then drops that revs to something like 2500-3000rpm...its ridiculous and inspires swearing at Alfa Romeo.

ProAlfa worked an LC into LJ's ECU remap which is freakin amazing! Also he has the NO LIFT SHIFT also in the ECU remap...damn they are amazing!

Thanks for the advice mate really appreciate it. Is your car remapped also or did you drop it with just those mods

It was remapped for about 80% of its life thus far. Right now I'm running a Novitec Powerjet 3 but considering going back to a complete remap.

yes i lowered it with custom -55mm springs all round on stock shocks/isolators removed and bump stops shaved...the ride is remarkable for a low car.

I did 6.4 seconds when my car was stock with a G TECH box. Now I have a lot more power and the torque limiters are history. However I don't expect 0 - 60 to be greatly improved as I have tried it once and it seems that the esp cuts the power like crazy in order you wont get any wheelspin. The solution will be to install an LSD, modify the suspension and install grippier tires. However you still shouldnt expect 4wd launches. But anyway who cares about 0 - 60 mate. You have a front engine front wheel drive car with no LSD. Be clever and use it to your advantage. You are having way less loss of power to the wheels compared to a 4wd car with lsd's and automatic transmission, not to mention less weight as well. Therefore if you have 300hp and your mate in his s3 has 300 as well, you will eat him alive. But don't race from a stand still.

You rarely do a 0-60 time so why concentrate on that ??? More realistic to have a better in gear 30-80 improvement that is probably more relevant to what you may do on roads

That makes sense i never actually thought about that. Are you still looking at changing the same things or is that more about the way the ecu is mapped for gear changes
