  1. Differences in two Spiders

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Due to a fortunate set of circumstances I've acquired a second spider (not a V6 😢 ) I was expecting the cars to feel identical or at least very similar but they're not. Mine is a 98 TS and the 2nd is a 01 TS. The 01 has lighter steering, engine is smoother and quieter and the suspension is less...

  3. S4 and S2 door differences?

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    I've got a S4 door to replace my rotten S2 door but as it came from a S4 it would have had EW's, does anyone know if its an easy swap over or will I have to weld new window winder brackets on? Cheers
  4. Alfaromeo Guilietta QV 1.7Tbi differences

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hi, I'm interested in purchasing an Alfa Guilietta QV with TCT, but I'm unsure what are the differences from year 2014 to date. The emissions at some point came down from 162g to 157g. Is there something different in the engine? I know that the latest interior post 2016 has also changes and...
  5. 132 - 155 and 170 engine differences

    Alfa MiTo
    Not new to Alfas (usually on 159 and Alfetta GTV forum) but new to the Mito. My Son is looking for a Mito and I would like to know the differences between the 132, 155 and 170 bhp engines. Is it just a map? What will the 132 reliably remap to? Are the 155 and 170 also a later modified head /...
  6. V6 CF1/CF2/CF3 power differences

    Engines (TS, JTS, JTD & V6)
    Hello guys, I'm actually trying to understand some things about our v6's. I previously got a CF1 GTV with a CF3 engine that was very very strong with a wide torque spread at all rpm. All the car was stock, from intake to map & exhaust. The benefit of being on a CF1 car is that the throttle body...

  8. Anybody know about the differences in petrol brands?

    General Motoring Discussion
    It's been a while since the last discussion on whether fuels differ between brands. There were some posts in the past by people in the industry who knew about how fuel is mixed for the petrol stations and why it costs more.
  9. Differences in front bumpers

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi I'm having my spider repainted and it turns out that the front bumper is beyond painting so I need a replacement. Not sure if a ph2 will be a direct swap for a ph1 or not also is the gtv bumper the same? Could anyone comment as to suitability? Thanks
  10. 1.4 150bhp vs 170bhp - differences apart from map?

    Alfa Giulietta
    Dear All, I've done a search on my query below, but not found anything before I posted. Am thinking of buying a Giulietta Sprint and, while it has some nice cosmetic bits such as big brakes, alcantara interior, infotainment, side skirts, splitter etc, it has the 150bhp 1.4T. Am wondering...
  11. Vauxhall 2.0CDti and Alfa JTDm differences

    General Alfa Discussion
    I have jest been reading in the June issue of car mechanics magazine about their project Vauxhall Insignia. They have a serious engine issue with it, like cracked crankshaft, stuffed main bearings and a few other things. The cause they said was down to the DPF regenration process and Diesel...
  12. 156 v6 differences

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Looking at the v6 models and some seem to be 5 speed and others 6 speed also some have a plain centre consul below the 3 round dial\gauges but others have a bank of switches beneath them. Is there any where that lists all the differences on these models (98 models) Thanks Robert
  13. 2.4jtd oil sump. any differences?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    My 156 2.4jtd is a 2001 140bhp model and in need of a sump. I can get a sump form a 2002 150bhp engine and wonder are both sumps the same? I lve in Ireland and don't fancy the hassle of getting a sump sent over that is of no use to me. I can't imagine there would be any difference but if anyone...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hey all, ive heard that the Selespeed was improved greatly when the 156 had its facelift in 2003, and i was just wondering....what are the differences? What was changed to improve the behaviour of the Selespeed? Could these changes be applied to the earlier Selespeed models as an update/upgrade?

  16. Differences between 145/156 clutch

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I have a 1.8 TS engine from a 1998 Alfa 145 sitting on my drive to replace the 1.8 TS in my 1999 Alfa 156. I know they're the same engine, but I'm about to order some parts for it before fitting it to the car and need to check a few things - specifically, the clutch kit. Shop4parts list a...

  18. What Are The Differences Between The JTS and TS Engines

    Engines (TS, JTS, JTD & V6)
    I believe the JTS engine only has four spark plugs but does it have a balance shaft and a variator? :confused:
  19. 156/147 differences

    Alfa GTA
    I was just curios to find out what are the differences between the 147 GTA and 156 GTA, besides the obvious. I am reffering to the engine. As far as I know, the engine is the same, 100% identical, and the cars were both launched in 2002, so they are both Euro 3 compliant. But I hear some people...
  20. What are the differences?

    General Alfa Discussion
    I am upgrading my Chrysler PT Cruiser and want a 156 Sportwagon (as our practical car) - but which one? I want the facelift (so 2004 and 53plate?) but what other changes were there. Also what are the diffences in trim level? And does engine choice make a big difference to insurance (and CO2...
