  4. Has anyone 'chipped' a 156 2.4JTD?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I have a 150 bhp 2.4 JTD and have wondered about chipping it up to 210bhp and wondered what the insurance ramifications would be; and mechanically, would I be opening a can of worms? I've heard that the integrity of the drive shafts could be compromised with the extra torque. Cheers Terry
  5. Gt 1.9 jtd remap safe limit

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all i have a 2004 GT JTD 1.9. I am looking to have it remapped and have recieved a quote from a company called "Angel Tuning", they claim they will remap my 150bhp engine to 190bhp. This sounds a bit excessive to me and i wander what the general views are on this etc. Im also considering...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    No, not a thread on remapping :lol: Just wondered if anyone had experiences repairing chips in their glass roof? I noticed a small chip on the front nearside corner and am keen to get this resolved before winter with the potential for frezzing and cracking. I know autoglass repair chips...
  8. Chipped rear mag wheels

    Alfa MiTo
    Hi guys I have a new Mito QV Sport with the 18" Titanium mags... My second Mito.

I found that the wheel arches unlike my other cars, have no felt lining on the...

  10. Powder coated wheels chipped

    Alfa GTA
    Like many of you I had my wheels powdercoated by Autolusso a few years ago. The process was sold to me as "being tougher than the original finish" but I have quite a few stone chips that have taken the coat off, a problem I didn't have before. Anyone else had this problem? Thanks Olly. .

  16. Timing belt pulley chipped!

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    My timing belt pulley has a chunk missing on the outer edge, the bit that stops the belt coming off. I think this happened after my belts were changed. Is the balancing going to be out because of this? Do I need to replace this urgently! Can it affect the belts life! If I need to replace it...
