  2. 147 120HP remapped to around 180+HP 1.9TJD M-jet with LPG

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Has anyone carried this out here? I have been offered this option on my 147. ( Supposedly giving yet more power, cleaner, and supposedly improves engine reliability/life expectancy, and MPG of course or costs anyway) Is it worth it and are the claims true. Also as they are not the biggest car...

    Alfa Giulietta
    Had my 2014 JTDM2 150 remapped, quoted figure was 35-40 BHP increase, I don't for a second doubt that. If feels like a totally different car. I have a Sportiva and buy all accounts it's ride hight is higher than a Nissan Juke, not good for a supposedly 'sporty hatchback it looks terrible. I...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi all, I'm looking to buy a 159 and seen a 2.4 JTDm Ti that fits the bill - a lot of major work done recently, good paint etc. However, during a test drive I noticed that the clutch slips under load in 4th, 5th, 6th at around 2000rpm for a split second. It has had the EGR/DPF out and has been...

  6. Remapped 2.4 Performance

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi All, I cannoty help but notice that the value of some 159's had fallen recently and the 2.4 Diesel in particular looks very good value (as long as it isn't Ti spec) As standard the 2.4 versions seem to have similar performance to my 2.0 170bhp Giulietta, but as they are ripe for remapping...

  15. Has my 2.2 JTS already been remapped?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Looking in multiecuscan my engine ECU is showing number of programmings as 1. Does this mean it definitely has never been remapped or do the remappers routinely reset that? What do those with a remap and multiecuscan see as the number of programmings? Sent from my LG-V480 using Tapatalk

  19. ECU been remapped

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi I have had my 159 2.4 Ti for a couple of weeks and I love it. Whilst going through the service history, I noticed that it had been remapped. I contacted the garage that did the work, but they weren't sure what had been done, as they bring in a tuning company. My question is can I read the ECU...
  20. Remapped or not?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    For the last week we have been the proud owner of my third Alfa. A 2005 Alfa GT JTD. Yesterday the passenger door handle hinge went, so i have ordered one for a measly £7.95 and that will be my first repair next week. Anyhow, is there a way, without downloading the contents of the ecu, to tell...
