  1. VTA or recirc

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hey guys and gals, So the purists out there will hate me but I'm running a 2.4jtd 10v which I've remapped and got a stage 3 clutch in there. But I'm just concerned about my turbo. Running extra power/boost and having no way to stop all that air being forced back into my turbo. So I'm going...

  6. 145 c'leaf recirc prob

    Alfa 145 & 146
    Hi If anyone can give me the answer to the 145 C'leaf recirculator problem as detailed in the Tech room, I'd be most grateful. Hell, I might as well repeat the question. Where is the recirculator motor/servo and how do I get to it. I think mine's toast and it's stuck on 'sauna'!
