There was a rumour that like Porsche Alfa may increase prices for the top performance cars prior to end of March because of Brexit. But now Brexit will be delayed a few months. So hopefully no price increase, for a while.
Dear Alfa owners,
I am in the dark here,
My Alfa 159 1.9 JTDm started with loosing power so the advise was install new Turbo as I did,
when we took out the turbo we did not find any problems with it no tolerance and no broken parts
I cleaned out the housing and the Fanside of the turbo that was...
Just wanted some input on what I might need to be able to hit 300hp from a 156 20v engine.
I know i'm going to need bigger injectors and a bigger intercooler, map sensor, and will need to something about the exhaust system.
But will I need to change the turbo? if so what would...
First a little bit of history. It's a 81 kw 8v JTD 147, 2002.
- 2 years ago, IC hose snapped - replaced with metal pipe
For the past 8 months, car was throwing MCSF errors (sometimes they'd just appear and go, and sometimes they'd stick for a day or two)
- Vacuum hoses melted three times...
Just checked on the price of a Veloce against a PCH quote I was given in November (same dealer) and the monthlies have gone up approx 20%. Gutted as I was very close to placing an order. Even the salesman sounded annoyed.
Do Alfa not want to sell these cars or what?
Veloce £40k VED Increase
Am I missing something, people keep talking about speccing their car so it is below the £40K list price tax limit, but doesn't it just mean the VED will be £450 per year, or is there some other implication I'm missing? Surely £300 a year extra VED is irrelevant when you...
Used to drive an Alfa Red 2011 Veloce, and recently changed to a 2014 Sportiva.
Newer car seems slightly more refined although there are some creaks in different places!
One thing I have noticed is that when I lift the clutch pedal up the revs increase from 700 or 800 to a little over 1000 -...
To go out in style and to annoy the pants off a few environmentalists on here - What can you do to the 2.4 Jtdm engine to MAXIMISE power output and stuff the emissions?
EGR DELETE - Done
SWIRL FLAPS - Gone
DPF removal - This will need to wait till I get it through the MOT in a few...
Not sure how this works but I seem to have a 5mpg increase on my car. It has gone up from 45mpg average to 50mpg.
The only things I have done is to change the oil from Fuchs Titan Pro C2 to Total Ineo MC3 (C3 spec), replaced the fuel filter and put the lowered suspension back to standard ride...
Ive upgraded the fuel pump but im only getting about 4bar max , im guessing this is because of the regulator fitted in the top of the pump housing .
So my question is what is the easiest way to get the system to make a little more pressure.
The thought i had is slightly restrict the...
Just been on ARUK website and noticed Giulia prices have gone up again. QV now £61300, Veloce £37935.
Will be interesting to see what offers come along next now the 3 years free servicing has finished.
If you want to beat the VED increase let me know and we can source Alfa Romeo and other makes from stock before 1st April and the new VED rates hit.
Mind you not everything is going up ...the Mustang being under 40k will have year 2 onwards rate of just £140 per annum !
I have a 2006 JTD 16V 147, it has done 250 000km now.
Its completely stock, but I think its a bit special, due to the power, and would like to mod at least something.
I was thinking about the wastegate noise, but my engine/turbo does not have something like that.
Now while checking a...
Hello all members!
Well, i need some help and advice.
I have tuned map on my Alfa 156 2,4.
But, like always, this isn't enough. I want MORE Drive
Difrences between ori and tune map are:
1. Turbo presure - 7f7fe
2. VNT - 7FBd0
3. Turbo limiter map - 7fa74
4. Don't know - 7da56
5. Dont know -...
i am a little curious about egt.
My DPF needs about 600°C to regenerate.
The car only reaches about 240°C during motorway cruising and well below 200 in town. In other words i lack about 360°C Plus. The stock software overfuels the engine to reach that egt during regeneration...
I was wondering if there is any way, not overly complicated to increase the "resistance" in the steeringwheel in an alfa 156 '01. I recently changed from an older saloon, and I'm not sure if there usually is a difference between saloons and sportswagons, but this one seems far too light and lose...
As per the title really, lift off the throttle and its like somebody is dragging the brakes for me, touch the throttle again and it feels like the engine is "overcoming" something. Sometimes coasting down a hill I feel I need to apply the throttle.
Drove a colleagues Saab 9-3 tid...
