  1. Alfa 155
    I got washed by a bmw yesterday and it felt really bad.. so any good tips on getting the good ol 2.0 TS more power. I saw some topics on v6 been boosted to ~350 bhp I'd go to ~200-250 first. All options would be higly appriciated. (and I am not going to tell you how much did it cost to get my...

    Heres the problem. When i connect a cd/radio unit using the ISO connectors within the standard wiring loom I loose the memory settings when the car is switched off. This happened to a Kenwood unit ( i sold it because i thought it was faulty) and now a Sony unit. I have checked the permanent...

    Hi Guys, I've had my 147 for the past 14 months and found out only today (and by mistake) that the power windows can be opened and closed remotely from the open/close buttons on the car key. My car is a standard 1.6 distinctive. I did not manage to find this feature described anywhere in the...

    The power steering pump on my 145 Cloverleaf is VERY noisy so I've got to get a new one.Question is, do I go brand new (expensive) or scrap yard (where I don't know the condition of the pump I'm buying).Does anyone know if it's a common problem, cos if it is I'll steer clear of second hand.Also...

    Hi Guys Result from the recent rolling road session showed my V6 is running lean STILL!!! Its had a new oxygen sensor recently, the techs at John Nobles said it is lean all throught the rev range and suggested installing a power boost valve, cost about £70 gbp for the part. Anyone know about...

    I have heard plenty in this forum about Squadra and Super chips but has anyone tried the Powerchips form Collins Performance Engineering? I have also heard someone mention thatyou can get the origanal chips re-mapped, will this produce the same benifits as replacing the chip and will it cost...

    Has anybody fitted an fse power boost valve to ther motor? Are they any good? Also, i have fitted a set of black speedline alloys to my 93" 164 t-spark and had to put spacers onthe back for them to fit. Is this safe and should'nt they fit without the spacers? cheers

    Weird problem with my driver's side power window. It goes down ok. However, coming up is the problem. Pressing the 'Up' button, I hear 2 very quick 'clicks' from the relay under the dashboard but the window stays down. Now here is the even more annoying part. If the window is partially down and...

    Hello, My 156 1.6TS suffers of a lack of power/torque. It was more powerful in the past, but now, I thonk I have a problem. The alfa diagnostics says always is OK. My car is 4 years old and 80000km. My spark plugs have never been changed, do you think it could be a good idea (but expensive)...
  14. Alfa 145 & 146
    I was reading a post earlier where a suggestion was made about a Carbon Airbox. It got me round to thinking again about snsible power mods. Thought it might be interesting to see what everyone has done or is thinking of. (Mainly to see what else I can do with mine!!) So far mines been chipped...
  15. Alfa 155
    Guys I have seen a 156 V6 with some sort of high power option. The advert claimed 190Bhp from a 2.5 v6. Is this a standard performance pack :confused: Andy
  16. General Alfa Discussion
    Someone posted a thread a while back either on this forum or the Alfa155 forum about the comparative lack of power of Alfa engines compared to more modern designs. So I did a bit of web research, comparing the Alfa 1.8 ts 16V BHP output to other 1.8 offerings: Alfa Romeo 1.8 140 bhp Ford...

    I'm sure this is not a new topic, but any help would be great. My 2.0 16v is acting up a bit, recently I got a ram air filter and supersprint exhaust and every thing was running great. I the last couple of days I have noticed the injector light come on and a few time while driving along...no...

    Following on from my lardy arsed cars thread Here`s a thought for you.Instead of spending £500 on a performance exhaust and chip would you not achieve the same by binning some of that extra weight?I reckon you could live without a back seat,bin some sound deadening (better to hear that...
