  1. Ways to defeat Traction control and stability control

    Alfa Giulia
    After about a year of ownership, and dozens of hours of online research, i have found a few ways to disable traction control and ESC. Everyone is being very secretive about them, fearing alfa would fix them in newer models, but that is only impeding the ability of current owners to turn them...
  2. 156 2.5 V6 Dyno figures

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    A while ago I had my 1998 2.5 V6 with 194,000km on a dyno. The figure returned was 105kw at the wheels, making it a 25% loss on the stated power (at flywheel) of 140kw when new. I would expect the 25% loss to be made up of age/mileage related reasons and power loss via the transmission/drive...

  12. How to DYNO test the Giulia???

    Alfa Giulia
    Just tried at JF automotive in Kent to dyno check the 2.0 petrol Giulia on a 4 wheel rolling road without success as the electronics did not recognise it was on a dyno and consequently limited the power to 60bhp whilst producing torque! They tried everything they know but it wasn't having it...

  15. Dyno Disapointment

    Alfa GTA
    As posted on the AROC Facebook... Had a disappointing visit to the local dyno yesterday with my 2005 147 GTA. I have had my suspicions that the car was a bit down on power but it still drives well and is deafeningly loud so all still fun to annoy the neighbours. However, some 30 horses have...

  19. Placing the 159 on a dyno

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Have booked the car in for some test readings on a dyno. The mechanic asked if the car had a front tow hook and said a front wheel drive car needs more fiddling about with bracing. So I am a bit worried that the car will fly off the dyno. What should I be looking out for in terms of setting...
