  1. 330mm on 17 inch turbines. Feedback?

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hi there, I've seen a 2011 thread showing that the 330mm brake discs/calipers (the red one from the 18inch option or GQV) were possible in the 17inch turbines. I'm looking for feedback in regards of performance. How's the braking experience, have those brakes been reliable (heat, wear, dust...

    Hi guys, couple of days ago the engine management light on my 2006 GT jtdm showed up, I downloaded multiecuscan and it reports a p2014 - Flow shutter valve(feedback) Signal low error. Would the 'signal low' message point to a faulty sensor rather than a failed valve, and where abouts is this...

  8. V6 spider pipercross induction kit feedback

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi-Is there any advantage going with the pipercross induction kit as opposed to just the air filter?

  11. Feedback on K&N Filters ...Worth the £40 ?

    Alfa MiTo
    Been told in the FB groups that a quick change of air filter on the 0.9 Mito is a good idea. Been recommended K&N and BMC. Anyone done this and is it a noticeable difference ? ....Just have a feeling it's akin to putting spikes on you floor standing speakers to make them sound better :ermm:
