    Does anyone know if Gus has moved premises or if he's closed? I called round earlier but his sign's gone and it looks like the garage in front has taken over the unit?
  2. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Finally had the old tractor remapped by the madman from St Helens and what a difference. No power figures to hand, before you all start asking but the car is a completely different animal now. Heaps more power and torque, vastly improved driveability, big improvement in throttle response and a...

    Is Gus on holiday at the moment as I can't get hold of him?
  4. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hi all, I am thinking about to upgrade the exhaust back boxes to replace the tired looking OEM ones on her currently, plus hopefully see some performance increase. (Both boxes) I am currently looking at 3 systems; the Wizard (Auto Lusso), Alfatune and Veloce (Ascari) straight pipe systems. I...

    Looking at these remaps as they don't involve dyno work (was quoted 1000 of your english pounds to do that here!!) Lots of peeps seem enamored of Gus' work at Alfatune, also noticed a place called Squadra Tune do a similar thing. ST seem very cheap, not sure how much Gus charges as I just...

    Hello all, as my title suggests I'm looking for a Remap for my 2.4 jtdm Ti. I've spoken to Gus at Alfatune regarding the full Remap, Dpf removal and Egr delete for £700. Is this upgrade worth the cash? I see nothing but positive reviews of this remap and I've saved the cash to have it done, but...

    I'm reluctantly selling my 147 Alfatune cat-back exhaust. These are pretty rare and really good quality, I'm after £350. It's louder than standard and sounds fantastic., but in combination with CF2s it's too much for my little one's ears, so sadly it has to go. I've never seen another used...
  8. Tuning & Upgrades
    Just thought I would share that I have taken my 2.4 Diesel Brera (200 BHP) to Alfatune at St Helens last Friday and cannot thank Gus and his team enough for what they have done for my car. Bought my first ever Alfa in the middle of April, a 2007 Brera with 85,867 miles, use it as my everyday...
  9. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    I know that there are many such posts on the forum that have discussed the pro's and con's of remaps, EGR blank\delete and DPF removal HOWEVER, having just collected my 159 1.9 JTMm 16V from Gus after having the works I could not be more delighted with the result. Faster, smoother, less turbo...
  10. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Just wanted to post a small write up of my recent experience with Alfashop, Alfatune and my now EGR-free, remapped GT. Bought my GT back in November in pretty good shape, just wear and tear items needing some attention really. I decided to drive it for a few weeks first so I could properly...
  11. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    So I'm obviously a bit odd, because unlike many, I believe a JTS to be worth actually bothering with, and so that brings us to another episode of me meddling with it. A long time ago I put it on a dyno and got pretty much what I expected. A bit later I then had the head rebuilt - carbon horror...
  12. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hi I'm getting excessive amounts of smoke after alfatune remap, week before remap reading was 0.87, and now after remap + dpf delete i get readings around 4, and car after only 300 miles looks black. I was expecting some increase in smoke, but 4 is beyond MOT fail level. Am i the only one with...

    As title really, are there any alfatune agents in South Wales / South west?
  14. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hi All I have a absolutely immaculate Brera/spider 2.2jts Alfatune exhaust for sale. It is a full stainless steel (cat back) system bought 8 months ago with less than 2000 miles done. This was bought from Gus of Alfatune Motorsport for £450 and makes the car sound fantastic ( people are...
  15. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    I've seen that Alfatune offer a remap on the 2.4jtdm that takes it to 260hp, given stock is 210hp, this is a big jump especially in torque. Is this map safe or does the car slowly fall to pieces because of the additional strain on it. Be good to hear users experiences if there are any.
  16. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    As per title, my car has a couple of mods and this makes it a bit more difficult to price up because I can't find similar cars on Autotrader etc to use as a guide. The car is a 3 door Lusso in silver with a black leather interior. Good, but not perfect condition inside and out. The engine does...
  17. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    When I found out about the new rules on DPF removal and getting An MOT I was gutted as I had mine booked in at JJB Motors for the Stage 2 Alfatune and DPF removal. I just don't want to take the risk of not been able to MOT my car even though there is conflicting stories of whether it would pass...
  18. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hi all and happy new year! Over the festive period i decided to book my car in with Gus at Alfatune, great service! He actually fitted me in the day after I called :thumbs: It has now benefitted from EGR delete, DPF removal, stainless exhaust and remap! It looks awesome, sounds awesome and...
  19. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    I've got my car (159 2.4 (210)) booked in to get the Alfatune stage 1 remap. This involves an Egr delete plus remap but leaves the dpf in place and functioning as normal. As a result there should be no Mot problems. Has anyone on here had this done. What was the car like to drive afterwards...
  20. Alfa 33, Sud & Sprint
    Hi everyone. You know, sometimes, only a grovelling apology will do. I had taken a week off work to replace both the gearbox and the engine in my Nova and at the end of that week I have to admit I was tired and a bit emotional. My comments in "Alfatune Mystery Motor" could have been misconstrued...
