  1. Tuning & Upgrades
    Hi all! I'm wondering what aftermarket, or upgraded, throttle bodies y'all have fitted on TwinSpark engines? I'm not necessarily looking for performance gains (I understand far more work needs to be done to get that besides just the throttle body), but I am looking for something that will let...
  2. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi all! Just wondering, what with the rarity of new Idle Speed Actuators, if anyone's managed to transplant some other car's or third party throttle body on the GTV? What did you use and how hard was it to do? I've seen Alfa Workshop's 2.5 V6 adapter for Twin Spark engines, but never any more...
  3. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    I'm looking into getting the throttle body cleaned on my 1.9jtdm I don't know if it's sticking as I'm experiencing rough idle etc. And also still having problems with occasional rough starting so don't know if it's connected? Anyhow I've been looking on how much it would be to replace (if need...
  4. Alfa GTA
    Been doing lots of research and it seems that there are claims of 20bhp to 30bhp on fitting individual throttle bodies to a 3.2 24v engine 45mm seems to be the preferred size. I was thinking as the 24v already has the injector fitted all you really need is individual 45mm throttle plates and...

    Body Kits on GTV's, post pics of what you have done to make your body look more buff (keep it clean). Ive seen some nice body kits on GTV's and Spiders, I think we would all like to see more so this thread can be just for that, post em up!

    Hi Gents, I,am sure this as been discussed before, but thought i,d start a thread, as i,am currently interested in the expieriances and opinions of others in relation to ignition, fueling, mappable ecus and carbs vs throttle bodies, on a modified 33, 16v engine, 1830cc, circular 200bhp, I...
  7. Alfa 33, Sud & Sprint
    Hi Everyone, I'm wondering if anyone tried to fit twin throttle bodies for a 8V boxer engine with fuel injection? e.g.: modified motorcycle throttle bodies, or uniquely manufactured ones. I think the dell'orto ones from the 16V has too big distance between the choke tubes to fit easily on a...
  8. Alfa 33, Sud & Sprint
    Is it possible to take the butterfly axle out from a 16v throttle body? Seems to me like the axle is locked somehow, but I cant figure out how. Yes, I have removed the throttle plates :)
  9. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I happen to have some spare throttle bodies, some have larger diameter bore than others (but will all fit plenum OK) Has anyone on here experimented with trying larger bore TB's to alter power (a la 2 stroke technology) or is it not as simple as that!?
  10. Alfa 33, Sud & Sprint
    Hello people ! :) Come on guys, I'm sure someone will know the answer to this : 16v non catalytic throttle bodies, with throttle switch rather than sensor ( as if it makes any difference on the adjusters ) Apart from aligning the adjusters to be sure that both throttle bodies open up at the...
  11. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hey Guys, Took the GTV out for a spin today, didn't go any faster than 80mph and burnt 1/4 of a tank but only got 35 miles:wow: Took it back home to inspect if the lambda was shagged and didn't need to, turns out the induction piping has split half open just after tha MAF!!!! Must've been...

    Hi Lads and Ladetts I have a couple of dellorto RA2 throttle bodies I think they are off a 33 1.7? Does this sound about right? My next Question is, does anyone have any spare manifolds they want to part with for my hard earned? Many Thanks James:thumbs:
  13. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I have just changed by throttle body. I had a 1.8 one on, and replaced it with one from a 2.0 (kept my ECU from the top though). Now the car seems to rev, when slowing etc. Idle is faster, but i preseume that is due to cable adjustment. I can't imagine the throtle body can be different (both...
  14. Alfa GTA
    Has anyone run throttle bodies on a GTA ? Would they be too loud for road use?
  15. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Does anyone know if a 156 2.0JTS throttle body is interchangable with a 156 2.0TS or 147 1.8TS as I keep getting tps faults and every now and then, and when you floor the pedal it looses power for a few seconds then picks up a bit but feels under powered. I have a couple of friends with the 156...
  16. Alfa 33, Sud & Sprint
    heys i was browsing through another forum site for alfa and sum dude said he used the carbies as individual throtle bodies while he still had the injectors running how is rthis possible any one no of this or actualy run it?
  17. Alfa 33, Sud & Sprint
    Does anyone want any standard throttle bodies. They seem to be expensive new (£180?). I have at least three pairs that I would sell to help fund the rebuild of the sprint. £15 per pair! Need to know asap as I'm clearing the garage for the rebuild.
  18. Tuning & Upgrades
    I'm in the process of tuning my 147 GTA engine, I have already decided on getting the AH 3.8 conversion however I'm undecided on a throttle body kit aswell? I see that the AH kit uses Jenvey bodies which I have heard good things about but I would like to know If anyone has had this conversion...
  19. Alfa 33, Sud & Sprint
    i know the injected boxer engines have throttle bodies as standard but do you know if you can buy bigger ones and where from?
  20. Alfa 33, Sud & Sprint
