  4. Bumper mounted Wizard exhaust video

    Alfa GTA
    I took a sizable video using the go-pro back on valentines day (I know how to give the missus a great day out). Finally got around to cutting down the boring footage and uploading it to youtube. I know the wizard exhaust is not for all, especially if you run a CF2 set-up but for those...

  7. Front mounted intercooler or not?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hey. My JTD is whistling a bit and putting out quite a lot of black smoke, I suspect a split intercooler pipe somewhere. So I was going to replace the pipes with silicon ones. But the intercooler bracket is pretty much rotted away as well, so does it make sense to replace everything with a...

    Hi Guys - any cyclists out there? I've searched the forum and its a few years ago since anyone asked about the best rear mounted cycle carriers for a 159, so just in case there's some new choices out there, I'll ask the question again:- What's the best rear mounted (not tow ball mounted) cycle...
  13. Mounted the upstairs tv today.

    The Technology Section
    I put it on the wall. The bracket is a beautiful bit of engineering and luckily it looks like I located the wall studs ! I wish I could work out how to conceal the cables behind the wall now. The apple machine has rotated the image 90 degrees!

  16. Where exactly is the xenon ballast mounted?

    Alfa GTA
    Got my car back from the workshop where they have found the ballast to be "taking a bath". When I talked to them they said it was mounted UNDER the headlight housing but I got the impression (from reading some threads here) that its mounted INSIDE the headlight housing (bottom of it but still...
  17. Boot mounted battery

    Alfa GTA
    As part of a mod to save a bit of weight in my 156 Gta I relocated the battery to my boot and removed my spare wheel. Not much of a weight reduction I know but does help distribute the weight better and gives me space to run a direct straight air intake to the throttle body. I used the front...
