  3. GTV V6 3L modded bad bhp

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hello guys, I'm actually struggling with my GTV. I've installed 3.2 cams with 3.2 timing tools, act carbon plenum and FPEL. Power at high rpm is really bad with 206 bhp at the crank at max (not on wheels)... Dyno attached. Torque seems good until 4k rpm where the 3.2 cams are supposed to...
  4. Morris Minor van with 165 BHP Sud engine

    Alfa 33, Sud & Sprint
    In the latest Classics Monthly magazine Jan 2012 there is an article on a Morris Minor van that has a 1.5Ti Alfasud engine in it with 165 BHP.:) Apparently when Alec Issigonis designed the Minor he always wanted to put a flat four into it!

  6. Who needs BHP, traction is king!

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Being rather childish and having a streak of boy racer left in me, even at the age of 40, I couldn't resist a little bit of traffic light grand prix last night..... I pulled into the inside lane at a set of lights that are on a slight incline, they then go over a dual carriage way and down the...
  7. 1.9 JTDM 8v 120 BHP

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi, I've been 159 shopping, and have found that most of the 1.9s for sale in Ireland are the 8v 120 BHP version. I'm aware that the general consensus is that the 1.8l petrol isn't up to moving the 159 around, so how does this diesel cope? Anyone know how it compares consumption-wise to the 150...

    Hey All, I have just come back from a test drive of a 1.4 78 bhp mito (the one with no multiair nor turbo fitted). To be honest I was quite impressed with the little engine. Sweet note, very nippy, lots of torque to which i was really amazed. Top notch marks for the little motor. Loved it. I...
  15. 3.2 v6 260 bhp torque curve

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hey guys, It's been discussed a lot that 3.2 engine seems to develop real torque only after 3.5k rpm. Which is according to tech specs. BUT the question is, does anyone by any chance have a power/torque curve?

    Tuning & Upgrades
    156 2.4 jtd 140 and 150 bhp are the same engines, but different maps. If i just dump 150 ori on, i should have a bit faster car :) Or i compare 140 ori and 150 ori and do a bit of research and push my bella a bit further :) And yes I'm tight and wont pay money for it. But it's dead easy with...

  20. 1750 TBi - Why not 235 bhp?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I note that the Guilietta has 235 ish BHP. Are there any rumours that the 159 will get this power or is the 1750 not the same 1750 engine as in the Guilietta? I'm about to order one and won't be happy if 1 month after it arrives they up the power.
