    Hello everyone, I have a question regarding a restoration that i'm currently planning. A friend sold me a veeeery cheap Alfa 147 2.0 TS CF3 with a snapped cambelt (and many bent valves), however i happen to have a spare working engine (2.0 TS CF2 from a 1999 156). As the title says, and...

    Hello! I'm new here - owned a couple of Alfas but never posted on here before! Seeking advice.. Picked up a 2001 ph2 spider TS that had been sat in a garage for years. Changed all the fluids, got her running, but she started to knock... I suspected big end bearings... I'd assumed that the...

    Hi! I am about to drop the sub frame on my 3,2 GT in order to fit a Quaife diff. As we all know the cf3 has heat issues so i wonder if it´s possible to wrap the manifolds in heat bandage?

    I have various parts either bought for or removed from my sadly departed GTV. I'd been hanging on to them for when I get another one, but realistically it's not going to be for a while so they're probably best being sold! No idea on prices, make me an offer... Collection from M1 J31 preferred...

    Hi folks Tired of being quoted £300 to cut out and weld in a new flexi as new twin cat front exhaust doesn't exist anywhere. I know some have gone down the modding cf2 front exhaust route. Can you share please how and where this was done? Im in the Thames Valley. Many thanks.
  10. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hello everyone! My 2.0 euro 3 TS burns an unacceptable amount of oil, so i am planning on changeing out the piston rings. I read on another thread, that some prefer 3 piece oil rings. I would be very interested in hearing from someone who have already done this, what rings did you use, where...

    Hi all, My '01 156 V6 has started to smell like a petrol station, and at it's MOT last week I asked the guys at the garage to have a look at tracking down the cause of the smell for me. The car doesn't leak fuel and MPG is no worse than normal. They traced the issue to the filler neck that...
  15. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Ive sent my ECU to Gus at Alfatune to be virginised, or have the anti theft CODE function removed altogether. There are pros and cons for both: Virginise, Pros, is cheaper than having immobiliser removed Cons, I only have one key, I dont know if my CODE box is functional, but a full scan of...

    SOLD I bought a new set of these thinking may be a good upgrade to a CF2 GTV and installed when doing cam shaft replacement etc. Anyhow after much looking into why my results were wrong (lower power bottom of rev range ) it turns out the CF3 injectors have a different spray pattern and not...

    Hi All, I have an ’01 156 V6 that I love, even more so now I’ve fitted a Wizard catback to it (massive Kudos to Dan and all at Wizard exhausts – the workmanship is top drawer). I’ve been toying with the idea of equal length downpipes, purely to make the engine note closer to the higher pitch...
