  1. Alfa Romeo 147 Q2 Breaking

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all, I currently have 147 Q2 1.9JTD that I've done loads of work to, new turbo, injectors, cambelt plus a tonne of other work. Unfortunately despite new battery, starter motor and glow plugs the car still isn't starting reliably. It may come to the point in the next few weeks that I have to...
  2. Quaife diff locking

    Alfa GTA
    Hi I have installed the quaife diff in my GT 3.2 I am experiencing a knock or sudden wheel spin, when I am full steering lock going forwards. Usually taking off from a parallel parking or during a U-turn. Is this just the LSD locking or did I fxck something up reassembling axles and...
  3. secondhand Quaife

    Alfa GTA spotted this zero to do with me though.
  4. Quaife diff and ASR

    Alfa GTA
    When i bought my 156 GTA a couple of weeks ago immediately installed a Quaife Diff. What's the best option when driving sporty on a curvy road? ASR off or on? Do they work together or do they counterwork? I now put the ASR off and i believe it drives better.
  5. V6 Quaife diff - LH Output Shaft Lock Ring

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi All, I have a GT 3.2 V6 (well it is when all the many pieces are together). :thinking: Fairly major resto / re-build underway which includes updating to a Quaife diff. Various threads on here are both an inspiration and a well-used reference. :beer: My query here is can anyone verify the...
  6. Creaking when turning steering wheels since installing Quaife diff

    Tuning & Upgrades
    My 3.0 156 is making a creaking sound when I turn the steering wheel ever since the diff was installed. It does it when the car is stationary and at low speeds so I'm guessing the diff itself isn't actually the cause, but it occurred at the same time that the diff (and 3.0 engine for that...
  7. Anyone with experience of fitting a Quaife LSD

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Removed the old diff and crownwheel now refitting the latter to the new Quaife. The GTV repair instructions Vol. 1 refers to a torque setting of 81-90Nm for the bolts but calls them "self locking". I can't see anything unusual about them. Should they be used with thread lock? No sign of any on...

  9. Used Q2 or Quaife diff for 156 V6 for sale?

    Tuning & Upgrades
    Hi, as my clutch needs to be changed ASAP, I have been advised to consider changing the differential as well. Fitting a LSD seems to be a popular upgrade on 156/GTV/147 for various reasons. So by any chance, does somebody have a used Q2 or Quaife differential waiting to be bought? :D

  12. Fitting a Quaife Diff

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I got myself a Quaife diff from Autolusso and I thought I'd get my local garage to pop it in while they changed my engine over. Unfortunately it now seems they don't want to touch anything transmission related, which is fair enough as it's there prerogative, even though just changing it over...
  13. Quaife diff bearings

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi All, For anyone that has fitted a quaiffe diff themselves. I just took the diff to a garage to get the bearings pressed on and with the diff back the bearing on the "empty" end is not tight against the casing. The empty end refering to the fact that it does not carry the crown wheel. On...
  14. Would you put a Quaife in Cup?

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I have a very standard 100k miles Cup in good condition, still on original clutch etc. I am seriously thinking about getting Autolusso to put in a Quaife plus new clutch and single mass flywheel. I appreciate these are good modifications from a trusted supplier and would have no hesitation in...

  16. Quaife Diff - Car Pulling right - HELP!!!

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all, I recently bought a 3.2 V6 GT which I love (too many previous Alfas to list but last one was a 3.0 litre GTV). My new GT had a Quaife Diff supplied by Autolusso fitted in 2013. I have a problem where under acceleration when in a straight line the car pulls to the right (slight nose...
  17. Oz owners of Black 156v6s post PICS!

    General Alfa Discussion
    Hello to all! I've noticed black cars are more rare in Australia (at least in Brisbane) -- perhaps due to the climate. So as the title says, it'd be nice if all Australian 156v6s in Black can gather in one thread. Please post at least: 1) one exterior pic 2) one interior pic 3) short...
  18. The rebuild begins

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi All, Thought I might start a thread detailing the progress of the spider. So far the GTV is about 80% broken, I plant to use the below to remedy issues with the spider... META Alarm ECU - I've not had remote locking or an alarm since about two years'll be a very happy day when its...
  19. 159 1750 TBi Quaife ATB Helical LSD differential

    Tuning & Upgrades
    Hi all. Just before Christmas Autolusso upgraded my car with Quaife LSD differential and it turned out to be a dream Xmas present :) So far it has proven to be a fantastic little thing, makes cornering faster, you can apply the power earlier than you would expect and the car goes exactly where...
