    I just saw on the news a proposal for new cars to be fitted with systems which will automatically limit the vehicle speed to obey with speed limits. The AA have advised that the limiter would need to be able to be overridden in case of emergency scenarios or overtaking. Okay... Angry rant...

    As the title says: From 2020 all new Volvos will be limited to 112mph (unless you're the feds).

    So since i decided to just pour money in my alfa no matter what the problem is i started thinking again for the visual side of the car. I am thinking of wheels. Problem is its kinda specific in terms of stock specs. 5x98 is a hard PCD to find interesting wheels. And currently the car sits on a...

    As of today the speed limit for main roads without a median or central barrier has been dropped from 90 to 80km/h. Not all roadsigns have been changed but speed cameras and the police will be enforcing the new limit from today. Be aware.. On the plus side it's 50mph on UK speedos rather...

    Quick question. What are the Rev limits for this engine? I know first is lower. Reason I ask is the wrong scale may have been used on the rollers on Saturday...... Ta,

    Since retiring my 156 2.5 v6 Q-system to the "track day or spares and repairs" file last year. This weekend I have the dubious honour of purchasing a 159 3.2 v6 Q4. Is there anything i should know, which isn't blatantly obvious about them. I know i will smile as i drive it:), i know the mpg is...

    I'm wondering the pressure limit of the coolant reservoir cap. In my V6 there's an aftermarket one (bought with reservoir) and 1.4bar is written on the cap. According the e-learn the cap should open at 0.98bar. In the advertisements of every aftermarket reservoir I see the same 1.4 bar cap. On...

    Hi, I'm thinking about new injectors now, but do you know how far I can go with standard injectors? I want especially lower RPMs, I will put second turbo to the manifold soon. with standard turbo, after that I will upgrade it to 2056 or 2260 with new injectors. What should I do? example, do...
  10. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    is that normal? It could probably go higher in 2nd or 1st but it seems to top out at around 5k in third, which is where the redline starts on my RPM meter; ending at 6k. I know there's next to bugger all power after about 4k so wonder if it's just this lack of grunt at the top end that's causing...

    young ladies in Nissan Micras want to get into your slipstream and improve their MPG ! :rolleyes: Something wrong with the way people are taught to drive these days I'm sure of it, or maybe I'm just being a grumpy old fart. :cool:

    Is there any skim limit indicator on the 1.9 JTD 16V head?
  16. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all i have a 2004 GT JTD 1.9. I am looking to have it remapped and have recieved a quote from a company called "Angel Tuning", they claim they will remap my 150bhp engine to 190bhp. This sounds a bit excessive to me and i wander what the general views are on this etc. Im also considering...

    Full article here new-acpo-speed-limit-enforcement-guidelines-welcome Some common sense being spoken by the Association of Chief Police Officers! Where limits are not clear (that is they don't feel/look like the limit or are on inappropriate roads), they will not be routinely enforced"...

    Does the current version of B&M still have the 2,000 song limit? I've had a good look at the information on and whilst they do give the USB device maximum capacity at 32GB I can see no mention of a 2,000 song limit which I understand was the case with earlier versions.

    THE QUESTION: Does anybody know how to trick the car into thinking it is in 2nd gear (or 3/4/5/6th) when it is in 1st gear??? _____________________________________________ As owners of MANUAL 3.2 JTS engines (159 3.2 etc) know - the rev limit on 1st gear is 6200 and the rev limit on all other...

    Hi everyone! I have a fiat stilo jtd 115cv with my custom remap, and I want to ask you a question related to fuel limits in edc15c7. I've read some post here but I haven't found why my car limits the iq from 3500rpm. In order to remap my car, I modified torque limiters, and iq-temp limit. I...
