  3. Opinions. Should I raid the piggy bank?

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Time to get the belt changed. Coming up to 70k miles and four years after the belt was last changed. I've decided to keep the car, although I only get to drive it through the weekends. So I'm thinking should I just bite the bullet and get the clutch done and get a Quiafe fitted as well at the...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I've got a problem with the GT, the rear N/S wheel has a intermittent high pitch squeal, most pronounced, when steering to the left. Car is quiet when travelling in a straight line and steering right. The squeal happens at any speed, low or high. Got home tonight (16th), got under the car, can't...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi guys I bought a Pro-bitz diesel tuning module for my 2.4 210bhp Brera a year ago, I have been happy with it and experienced no problems, and it has reduced my turbo lag. Anyway I was at P-Torque with my mate who was getting his 318d tuned and the guy let me dyno my Brera to see what it was...

  7. Piggy back ECU for 147 GTA

    Alfa GTA
    Hi Guys, just bought a piggy back ECU for my GTA from tuning Wizard, I'm surprised on how small it is, you can apparently get up to 40BHP, has anyone out there got any experiance with them, and does it affect reliability. According to tuning wizard its compleately reliable. Your expert opinion...

  9. ECU Piggy Back on eBay

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    In my quest for toys before I get my GTV I've come across this on eBay: ECU Piggyback device Now an extra 20bhp for £4 sounds like a load of crap, but I thought I'd ask in case anyone's got one and had joy from it.

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi everyone, After spending a quiet afternoon browsing ebay I note that there are loads of these piggy back chips mostly going for less than a fiver. They all seem to promise HP gains of between 9 and 25! Does anyone have any experience of them? Im guessing that its either too ridiculous to be...
  11. squeel piggy squeel

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    thought I'd post this here too from the spider forum, cos its great stuff for squeely brakes 'I found some stuff much better than copper grease - its made by Bendix (brake manufacturer) especially to prevent brake squeel. a bottle was £5, so not cheap, but even with notoriously squeely ferrodo...

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    Saw a weird site heading North on the A1 today, near Scotch Corner in North Yorks. A red Bertone Coupe, 4 Headlight type, sorry might have been a 1750 maybe a 2000, It was a very quick glance, because I has mesmerised by what was on the back of it. :confused: Believe or not It was towing...
