  3. Bigger MAF for GTA (87mm OD)

    Alfa GTA
    Hi, I am planning to swap my GTA orig. TB for Cayennes TB that has OD 87mm. Also the Carbon Dynamic airbox has the exact same outer diameter, but I realized that my GTA original MAF will not fit to that. So I guess bigger diameter MAF is required? Is there any MAF's that will work along with...

  5. Going to have to replace the Mito with something bigger - whats it worth?

    Alfa MiTo
    Hi all So ive had my mito now for 4 and a bit years (since march 2014), and i have to say, its been a great car. Back in March i picked up my Giulia Veloce, and since then, the mito has been used by my wife, and also when we go out with the kids. Its too much effort to move the car seats...

  7. 147 Alfa quirk or bigger problem? Start/not starting

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    This is going to sound a strange one and I really don't need my head checked but my 147 seems to have developed a bit of a strange quirk. If I get in the car close the door and turn the key to start the engine, I get a click sound and then all the electrics in the car go off and it doesn't...
  8. Jtd 1.9 16v, question about fitting a new (bigger) turbo

    Tuning & Upgrades
    So I got my hands on a GT2260V, what would the process be of making it work on my car? All the fabricating and plumbing is not a problem, I'm asking on the software side of things. Can it be driven without a remap? I'm assuming it regulates the boost from the map sensor readings and should be...

    Tuning & Upgrades
    Hi, I'm welcome again. Long time ago I could not touch my car, because of work. But last 5 days I did some really good work. and now the engine is running. But when I looked at my threads, they are too much for one car. It was a project and now I need to merge all the information to one and...
  10. New battery - Can I fit a bigger one?!

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Because bigger is better, right?! I have an 027 battery on my diesel 2008 GT (The one that's 242mm long, measured under the light of my phone) I see the longer 096 batteries (278mm long) seem to have been fitted to GTs from 2008 onwards. At least that's what Tanya batteries suggests. Can I...
  11. What will make bigger difference?

    South Africa
    GTA Cams or a Q2/Quaife diff? I flirted briefly with the idea of finding a 156 GTA, love the shape of the car, love the idea that its a GTA, like the idea it may have more comfortable seats than my GTV but when I worked it all out I'd need to spend significant money on any GTA, unless I paid...
  12. Bigger wheels?

    Alfa MiTo
    Evening, after some 17 or 18 inch wheels for my Mito, must be Alfa ones. Can't seem to find any ones I like anywhere, ebay only has the ones I have now or like 1 or 2 rather than a set. Any suggestions where I could find some or is anybody selling any?
  13. Bigger throttle Body for GT 3.2 V6

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hello The Alfa GT's throttle body can be increased with either a Ferrari 360 or Ferrari 430 TB which is 84mm, together with the ACT Carbon intake Plenum you should get more air into the engine. Now, If I get more air, I need more petrol to make a difference, so I would be needing hi-flow...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi, I'm looking bigger Throttle Body for my 1.9JTDM 16V engine, I will change the manifold, so it wont be a problem to fit it. But I need suitable body. So do you know anything? Is 2.4Jtdm body bigger than 1.9Jtdm?
  15. Bigger Plenum Need More Air?

    Alfa GTA
    I will be installing an ACT carbon plenum in a month or so, they have around 25% more capacity according to their site. Is it worth getting a high flow air filter to let it suck more air in?

    Alfa Giulietta

    Tuning & Upgrades
    Hi all I have recently become the owner of a 159 Q4 2.4l JTDm s/w As you may be aware as I now am they are terrible for bottoming out destroying parts under the car.
