  5. Remapping 170 Jtdm and 'N' 'D' modes

    Alfa Giulietta
    I've been wondering: if (or more like when) I remap my recently acquired 2.0 170 diesel Giulietta, how will it effect the 2 driving modes on the D.N.A switch? I'm still very vague with the car, technically. So how does the D.N.A system work? There's a HUGE difference in the car when switched...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I've just bought an '07 GT 1.9 JTDm Blackline, looking at the various mapping options and all of them are advertising BHP, torque, and MPG gains.. Mine is the 150 BHP model, and the tuning company offer three off the shelf packages for my car.. The "economy" package that takes to to 180 bhp...

    Yesterday I went to a programmer to remap the Brera 2.2. The plug was connected to the car but as the ECU was protected by the manufacturer, we couldn't enter in car's ECU. After several unsuccessful attempts, we had no other options but to upload a chart as we couldn't make a custom program...
