  1. EGR delete & Throttle valve

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi all, I have a 2.0JTDM 159. I have recently been having some low rev stuttering (1500rpm) with slight acceleration. Reading on here seemed to point to faulty EGR valve. So I removed the egr and cleaned, cleaned the Map sensor and stuttering is much better although not completely gone. Was...
  2. EGR Delete - Advice?

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hi, I'm going to be picking up my new (to me) Giulietta tomorrow. It's a 2013 JTDM 140. It's been remapped by Autolusso to 180bhp, and it's had an EGR delete. This will be my first diesel, and to be honest I'm not 100% sure what the EGR delete does, and what the benefits and/or drawbacks...

  5. Vacuum reservoir delete

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    After failing to trace a boost leak via the usual suspects and to eliminate the turbo being at fault I ran a vacuum hose direct from the t-piece in the large vacuum hose just under the top inlet direct to the watergate, which confirmed movement with vacuum (to much vacuum) then to test running...
  6. Rear Wiper Delete / Removal

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hi all, Has anyone removed their rear wiper completely? I'm sure I saw a picture on here not so long ago of a G that had had this done, and it looks much better IMO. Reason I'm asking is that my rear wiper needs replacing at some point, and my rear washer hasn't worked since I've had the car...

  8. Delete middle exhaust/silencer? QV

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hello! I've been wondering about this, if I delete the middle exhaust/silencer on my QV (manual '12), will this still be a better sound? I have been searching around forums and YT but I only can seem to find this being done on TCT's (or I am wrong about this). Did someone did this on his...

  10. DPF delete - do I still need the sensors?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi. I’m looking to have my DPF pipe replaced with a custom straight-thru by a local exhaust specialist. The car is a 159 2.4 and has had a performance remap and no longer does regens. Do I need to ensure any replacement section has the pressure and temperature sensor fitments like the...
  11. swirl flap delete MOT question

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    With the new MOT regs in May saying removal / blanking of EGR is a fail, could the removal of swirl flaps in the future be added to the fail list? Why don't the manufactures of the inlet manifold offer a swirl flap repair option, or trade in swap, or an aftermarket company?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi everyone, I have a 159 2.0 JTDM Ti which I absolutely love! I am looking to get it remapped with an EGR delete. I have read a lot about this but just wanted clarification as to whether on this engine the EGR valve actually has to be blanked? It seems the EGR valve set up on the 2.0 is...

  14. 2.4 back box delete

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I'm thinking of going down the Wizard/Custom exhaust route, however as I've got an auto I'm worried it may drone at motorway speeds. Are there any 2.4 q-tronic owners out there that have deleted their back boxes and can comment on whether they get any noise issues? Thanks in advance!

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I can see these are quite easily done in the UK but just wondering if anyone has gotten this work done in Australia? Very intriguing stuff and not really something they test for over here
  19. EGR/ DPF Delete & Power remap

    Republic of Ireland
    I am toying with the idea of EGR/ DPF Delete & Power remap for 159 2.0 JTDm SW. I don't have any issues but from what I read here it`s good preventive measure. I`ve been quoted €750 for the lot from a company here in Dublin, they have done plenty of work on Alfa's the garage have told me and...
  20. 159 1.9 jtdm egr temporary delete

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    People have said that deleting and blanking off the egr leads to improved performance and economy. My car currently has a blanking plate with a hole in it. My plan is to temporarily blank the egr valve off totally to see if it really does improve performance and economy. I know the eml will...
