  1. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Found a FL 156 with this engine. 290k on the clock. Clutch, flywheel, belt etc replaced, suspension replaced for 3500e. Is it a better buy than a 1.9 16v with 140k but unknown service history for 2800e?
  2. Republic of Ireland
    Well just wondering how many people on here have a 2.4 and which variant of the engine they have. Am wondering what type of real world economy they deliver and if they are 5 or 6 speed box as this a bit of research for an upcoming project.....

  5. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi, new one to the site. I'm after a diesel and love the alfa range. looking at 156 JTDs so thought this would be the best place to come! I like my turbo cars - had a saab 900 turbo last but just need something thats better on the wallet. Been reading plenty of the performance posts about...

    Back in Brera Diesel thoughts, but what´s the business with the 2,4 engine; are there many of them? One with 209 and one with 200 HP? JTD and JTDM? What´s with the "M"? Which one do I want...?

  8. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Having introduced myself in the 'Newbies' section I was directed here to assist me with a few niggling questions before I hand over my 'hard-earned'. 1) Are there any people on here with high milage 2.4 JTD's (ie 125,000 miles+) and what problems have they had (if any).?? 2) timing belt...

  11. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi there, I'm just about to have my 96,000 mile service on my '52 (2002) plate 2.4jtd. Apart from a suspension knock (which only really appears when I'm not accelerating - possible engine mount?), the car is very sound. It's done only motorway miles, has it's fair share of stone chips on the...
  12. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Just out of interest at the Moment does anyone know what model Turbos are fitted to the following cars 150bhp 16v, 175bhp 20v and the new 200bhp 20v. I was thinking about the Brera lag and wondered if it still have a VNT or whether Alfa just added a bigger normal turbo hence the lag, I was...
  13. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I have recently moved and find myself doing less commuting mileage than I used to and now I seem to struggle to hit 500miles to a tankful of fuel, this is a considerable drop for me as the car used to do around 550-570, now my new route is flat and traffic free so I'd think I would be equally as...
  14. General Alfa Discussion
    I have a 156 2.4JTD which i love, but I am currently at a crossroads. Do I change the car, or spend some money on making mine better? With this in mind I am considering a re-map. So my question is this..... Could all the people with re-maps please sum up the overall pros and cons of the...
