  1. Fuel flow problem

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    So I have a 2002 147 2.0 TSpark that wont rev properly. It idles perfectly and revs to about 2000rpm before struggling. I suspect it is running lean after that. This hose (with the red tape in) is perished and leaks petrol, so I wonder if it sucks air in at higher revs?? The key thing is, which...

    Hi all, my 159 has had EGR and DPF deleted and has been remapped by Gus at Alfatune. Recently it's been running a bit sluggish up to 2.5k revs so I've ran it a couple of times (each for a couple of days) with the MAF unplugged and it definitely runs better without it, a couple of questions...

  19. 164 QV Air Flow Meter required?

    Alfa 164 & 166
