  1. power loss

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all, My 156 2.o twin spark (1999) occasionally suffers a brief but complete power loss. This always happens whilst accelerating from lowish speed. It lasts a few seconds and the injector light comes on, then the power comes back as normal. Local Alfa specialist (Alfanet) has had a look but...

    Hi Yesterday I had an odd thing happen to me while driving. At about 70km/h, I got a check engine light come on. Then moments later, I lost all power. The car didn't rev correctly, and couldn't maintain its speed. While coasting to the side of the road, engine cut off, I lost power steering...

  10. 2.4 power loss is defeating me

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    A plea for guidance. 2008 on a 57 2.4 which has done 70K miles. Started getting episodes of total power loss when pulling away, nothing at all whilst the revs built painfully towards 2,500 then woosh, off she went. That happened very occassionally. Fast forward to the last few weeks and that...

  12. How to get more power from 2.5 v6

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I've done the usual breathing and exhaust mods including straight pipe and a remap. Trying to get more power out of my engine without a supercharger or turbo. My question is what is the limiting point in our engines. In other words. I've seen 2.5 v6 engines N/A pushing out up to 100hp more than...

  14. Power of the 1750TB in different modes

    Alfa Giulietta
    I’m wondering if anyone knows or can tell me where to find the actual max power figures for the 1750Turbo engine of a Giulietta Veloce in each of its three modes. I know max torque in Natural is a claimed 300Nm and in Dynamic 350Nm but what about the power figures? I know Max power is a claimed...
  15. Power Steering failure

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Just had to flatbed it back home. Power steering failed suddenly while driving with smoke gushing from the back of the engine. Presuming that was its fluid being spat out all over the exhaust etc, but aint had a good look yet, but suppose its either pump or pipes.

    Fruity , as you suspected! Not pleasant reading as far as HP is concerned. surprisingly, the torque numbers are not terrible at 143ft/pounds It is what it is and its 14years old. Disappointed but not entirely surprised, though id hoped for a bit more.
  19. V6 CF1/CF2/CF3 power differences

    Engines (TS, JTS, JTD & V6)
    Hello guys, I'm actually trying to understand some things about our v6's. I previously got a CF1 GTV with a CF3 engine that was very very strong with a wide torque spread at all rpm. All the car was stock, from intake to map & exhaust. The benefit of being on a CF1 car is that the throttle body...
