    Help please!! My car is off the road due to a large hole in the part that connects to the turbo from the airbox(it has lines and a 'creased' section). It also has a branch which I think is for the pcv up to the top of the engine. Sorry if my description is poor, but I can't find one...

    Hi all, Can anyone tell me if a 3.2 V6 airbox will actually fit a 3.0 V6 ? I appreciate that the 3.2 has a slightly larger diameter internal size but is this a doable swap and if so, any disadvantages apart from a slightly slower airflow and possible slight loss of low end torque? Anyone else...

    HI guys, I'm asking as I'm trying to replace the broken plastic/rubber to a stainless steel pipes for my INTAKE. I currently have a BMC CDA sitting where the old air filter box is. Is there a certain length that must be followed(piping length) between the Air Filter to the MAF and to TB? Or...

    Guys, My 156 V6 has a K&N bolted onto it. I'm not proud and I'm not happy, and I want to get a proper Airbox / Filter. :lol: The K&N is bolted right at the very bottom of the piping, so at least that was all kept original. What are my options here? I actually have the airbox off of a 2000 2...

    Hi, I stripped down the 156 today to replace the radiator, and found that the airbox is knackered. Looks like the intake under the wing broke free, which in turn broke the air filter housing. So...at the risk of reigniting the cone-filters-kill-MAFs debate, what are my options? I'd quite like...

    Has anyone on here removed the big airbox resonator on their 166 and put a straight through pipe from the throttle body to the air filter housing? If so what, if any difference it made to the car? Also has anyone upgraded their exhaust. Ive heard a ragazzon exhaust on a V6 and it sounds amazing!!

  16. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hello, Got the rusty nuts problem and the studs spinning in the airbox lid and also on the MAF retaining brackets (need to change it). To get the air box out is it just the bolts at the front of the battery tray? I can see 2 rubbers underneath, do they just pull out? If I can't fix it does...

    Can you get an induction filter for the V6, I replaced my MAF and the airbox is cream crackered.
  18. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I have just changed my air filter, and for the 1st time noticed that the 'pick up' tube for the air which leads from the top (exit) of the box down to the bottom is slightly 'venturi' shaped, with a 'trumpet' shape on the end, but it is also forming a restriction as its only 35mm across where...

    Hi all alfa crew. I m replacing the aif filter and box on my 147 selespeed from the K&N because it is damaging the engine. I have got the airbox and pipe that leads up to the MAF. I had a look on the engine bay and it looks like i need to remove the fuse box to get access to the airbox mounting...

    Ok, today I went to replace the airfilter in the 156 but I can't get the top bit off due to the bolts just going round and round or access. I noticed there are 3 bolts around the base of the thick pipe (these are just spinning) then another 3 bolts around it's baseplate (can't get near them)...
