  9. 2.2 JTS - does the ECU recalibrate every 5000 miles?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    A thought presented itself after a post by Northen Spider about his economy improving after crossing 20,000 miles. I'm seeing a pattern. Immediately after it turned 5000 miles, my 2.2 got noticeably more grunty in the exhaust, seemed to have more power, and there was a slight increase in...
