  1. Alfa MiTo
    Hello I'm thinking about putting a turbo charger in a 1.4 petrol MiTo and I haven't been able to find anything online discussing if the internals on the model without OEM turbo would be strong enough to have a turbo put on. Any replies on this would be greatly appreciated thank you
  2. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi guys, I just got my first alfa romeo project car :) I was wondering if there are any cheap, fun mods I could do to it. Right now my plans for the car are: - KW coilovers -new rims -3.0 v6 engine swap (gonna have to learn alot about it) -new exhaust and tunes etc when the new engine is in...
  3. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi ! I created this post because I want to build my car in a GTA style. I would like to asking where to order GTA bodykit which is good quality, and relatively inexpensive. And I would even like to ask if the fenders are wider than the factory 156, and also the track width? Thanks in advance...
  4. Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hey guys, I would like to change the Alfa Romeo logo badge on the car to the new one like the newest Alfa Romeo's because I think the one I have looks a little dated but still isn't too bad as it's very similar. Looking for any advice how to do this? Anyone done it already? How do they come...
  5. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    So, I’ve been looking for a low mileage, well-cared for example of a 3.0 V6.....and there seems to be a fairly standard set of mods which are carried out on a number of GTVs The Q2, sports exhaust, 330mm Brembos, equal length downpipes etc all make perfect sense, but I would like to ask the...
  6. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    The exhaust on my gt has seen better days, particullary the middle silencer after the flexi. I've spoken with a buddy having the same motor, and he said something about the silencer being "catalyzed". That seemed weird to me, as the maniverter, I think, consists of all the emission regulating...
  7. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi all - prospective buyer of my Gtv is having issues getting a sensible insurance quote when declaring Q2, stainless downpipes and Gta wheels with Alfisti.net spacers. Full clean licence many years ncb etc. Who are you all using with good cover, agreed value and sensible mods? Ta
  8. Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Are there any exhaust mods worth doing on my 2.2JTS Spider 939 so I can actually hear the exhaust? What is required to be done and do you need to remap ECU? Full system including ex manifold is probably really pricey
  9. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi, i have ph1 2.0TS with Motronic m2.1.x ECU and i wonder if someone has pop and bang, crackle when you lift off the throttle feature installed and if you know if someone can do it? I have the file read from the ECU? Also i have problem with my ABS can’t figure out what the problem is. Abs does...
  10. Tuning & Upgrades
    Hello everyone. Here's a rundown of the modifications I have made to my beautiful Giulietta QV over the 8months or so of ownership. I will update with pictures and new mods as I do them. Hope this can help any of you who are looking to do some modifications to your car. A lot of these can be...
  11. Alfa 164 & 166
    Hi all I'm looking for ways to increase the throttle response on my 164 24v qv. Is there a throttle body alternative like the Ferrari 360 or porsche parts but with a cable? Are there any other tips to increase the response? Thanks Tim
  12. Alfa Stelvio
    Completed a few mods to the interior and have the car back from DetailR who applied Paint protection film to the front (bra style), Three stage Ceramic coating to the body work and Ceramic coating to the Brake Calipers and wheels. I have also had the front windows tinted and fitted rear mud flaps.
  13. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi guys, I am thinking doing some mods to my Alfa GT 1.9 JTD 150HP from 2004. I was thinking on having 200-220hp /420nm (no smoke). For that I was thinking on getting the hybrid turbo GT1756v or modifying my turbo to one like that (not sure if a turbo workshop can do it...) Upgrading my...

  15. South Africa
    I've come to conclude that I will be keeping my 159 for longer than I had intended, which isn't necessarily a bad thing. It's still an awesome car and has no faults or flaws. But this means that i will need to do certain changes to maintain interest for the next year or two, and this brought me...
  16. Alfa Giulietta
    Hello All, I don't want this to be about my car, more a discussion on everyone's. Before I get into it I know the first thought would be why not just buy the QV, Insurance and MPG is why, I'm 21 paying 750 a year on my 1.4 where as it was 1800 for the QV. DervTech Tuning (Manchester) have...
  17. Alfa Giulietta
    Hi all I have seen Giulietta online, and just wondering if anyone on here knows where you can get the custom front bumper/splitter and the decals on the side!
  18. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Not to everyones liking, but was getting fed up with the silver. Now all I need are some red door cards!!
  19. General Alfa Discussion
    This is posted in the Brera/Spider/159 forum but thought Id put it to the wider Alfisti Below is copy and pasted from the 159 forum but I need to add here that its a 2.2 JTS engine, the exhaust splits from one to 2 pipes and then to 4 tails, Ive had the original boxes replaced with straight...
  20. Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Im after ideas, I had the Wizard pipes fitted on my Spider but they are not what I want. The great points first, build quality is top notch, it really is and looks wise they just transform the back end, then sound, well these make some wonderful noises and in the 3 weeks or so that I have had...
