  1. 156 136cv Turbo update and other components

    Tuning & Upgrades
    Hello guys. I hope you are all well. I would like to know if you can ask me a question. My car is a 156 2.4 of 136hp. I'm about to upgrade the turbo, without spending so much money, and I've seen the GT2256V. What I believed was that this turbo derived only from 156 20v 175hp. But the seller...

    Having just fitted new Eibach springs and B4 dampers to my wife 159TI SW, I'm looking to cure a suspension knock that has developed over the last 6 months.

    Has anyone had experience with the German brand, OPTIMAL? I am researching replacement upper and lower front wishbones for my 147 and can get these at a reasonable price.

    Hi all, quick question about front components in my 1999 156; I'm replacing the non-Bose with affinity, is there a crossover behind the card or are both cables to tweeter and woofer straight from head unit?

    Hiya, I was hoping that you would be able to tell me what various bits are in the engine bay to help me know what each bit is and what it does. Credit to A6 for the picture, his is the best clear engine shot I could find which matches mine :)
  13. How do I cover the electrical components in a petrol tb ma engine ?

    Alfa Giulietta
    I have posted this question here rather than in the detailing section, because it relates specifically to the Giulietta 170 ma tb petrol engine. I want to clean the engine bay, and have already ruled out: 1) Paying a detailing service to do it - too expensive and I would have to book time off...

    Did any of the GTs come with Bluetooth and were any fitted with blue&me? The back of my stereo head unit has a blue blank connector.

    Tuning & Upgrades
    T- Spark 2.0L have balance shafts and all the extras that go with it, belt and tensioners etc. If you were to carefully balance the pistons, rods etc from a 2.0L would you then need the balance shafts?

  19. 156 GTA Bose speakers - components?

    ICE & Blue&Me
    Hi. I've seen lots of posts saying that the Bose systems do not have separate woofer and tweeters. However, if I out my hand over the Bose marked tweeters you can hear the treble dip. I have been out with a torch and there does appear to be a tweeter behind the grill - I can't face taking the...
  20. Front shocks top components assembley

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I've just bought some new KYB front shocks and springs for my PH2 TS. Was thinking of buying new top component assembley bits of the shocks, rather than pay a garage an hours labour to transfer the old ones over. Has anyone bought these bits lately, how much did they cost?
