    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi everyone, I was visiting family at Christmas and the subject of my (new to me) Alfa 159 TI 2.4 JTDM came up and my step dad mentioned "whatever you do, alway leave it idling for a minute or two after you start it and just before you switch it off" so I humoured the old man and have been...

    Engines (TS, JTS, JTD & V6)
    I've been rooting around on here for a while and am drawing a blank. Can anybody please point me to a resource which shows the detailed measurements/dimensions for the Nord and Busso engines and, if possible, the non-FWD gearboxes? I've hit an impasse installing a modern Jaguar engine and...

  11. Supercharged engines

    General Motoring Discussion
    I pottered down to Madeira drive in Brighton today to have a gander at the Minis that had driven down from London. A few of the (A series) engines had superchargers on them and I don't know why but I was surprised some of them used carburettors, there's no reason why they shouldn't of course...
  12. Is AUX belt (no AC) the same for both CF1/CF2 TS engines?

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi! Like the title suggest, is the AUX belt interchangeable for both CF1 and CF2 engines? The reason I'm asking this is because my I did CF1 to CF2 (from 156) swap on my GTV and I don't remember exactly what kind of AUX belt I bought at the time. Folks at the workshop took some parts from...

  14. Best sounding engines (with youtube clips) - thoughts?

    General Motoring Discussion
    I spent / wated the evening last night listening to various engines and thinking about which ones sound nicest. V6: The 2.0 Turbo Busso is the winner for V6s IMO, but there is some close competition, even from my E320 with a resonator delete: V8: I can't really think of a V8 which sounds...

    Alfa MiTo
    I've just sold my Alfa Mito 170 QV, so no longer have a need for my TMC Tuning box. It is suitable for all Fiat & Alfa 1.4 litre T-Jet and Multiair Turbo engines.

  18. Why is the spark plug change so short for the 1.4 engines

    Alfa Giulietta
    The 1.4 engines have scheduled spark plug changes at 30 000km intervals. The plugs are iridium and very expensive. I was quoted $45 each here in Australia but I ended buying a set from ebay for my MA coming from England for half that price including delivery. My point is that these are iridium...
  19. Two F154 V6 engines?

    Alfa Giulia
    So, just a really quick question that can likely be easily resolved by someone more in the know than I am. I'm not normally one to simply believe Wikipedia, but I did want to ask why there are two different V6 engines that are listed for the Giulia? 2.9 L 90° V6 24v Twin turbo Ferrari F154 MT6...
  20. New generation guilietta engines

    Alfa Giulietta
    I'm not very technical, so this could be a daft question, but if they keep the current Guilietta going for another couple of years, do you think there is any chance they could put the new Giulia engines into it to try and keep a bit of interest going in them?
