Did the first test with the "Dragy GPS Performance Meter" on wifes 100% stock Giulietta MA170 TCT
These boxes are incredible accurate and just as good as the "old school" RaceLogic VBOX, to 1/4 of the VBOX price.
They get really good reviews all over, and I understand why
The MA170 TCT should...
I detailed my 166 vver the weekend, a good wash, a claying, then a final deep wet shine wax. ( yes I know this is the 156 forum, but this allies to them as well, particularly facelift headlights.
I wondered what would happen to the very poor milky headlights if I clayed them.
Just to give an update on this thread of my exploits in upgrades to my GTV
If reading for first tome or to remind you car is a 1999 Phase 2 3.0 CF2. Thus numbers are for a 20 year old car. The idea was to do something a litttle bit to add to the other changes on car mainly handling by a small...
My recently acquired GTV V6 was having a small patch of bodywork done and the place that does it has a rolling road so it was rude not to have it run up to check how healthy the engine is......thankfully it's very healthy. Engine wise it has a Ragazzon rear pipe and pipercross filter but is...
I know this has probably been asked a million times but I have yet to find a difinitive answer.
I have had a good root around under the fuse area beneath the steering wheel with no luck! Have had engine light on intermittently for days. No real problems, but it is running rich and sometimes...
Firstly can I say I'm a total novice mechanic.
I was concerned that my 1300 Super was hesitant below 2000 revs. I decided to run a compression test and the results were not good.
I have to admit that I didn't warm up the engine, did not touch the throttle...
1.3 Mito JTDM, battery is 12.6 volt DC, charging at 14.2 volts DC, 660 crank amps.
I have a alternator error "IAM PO65A" possibly the diode rectifier circuit is toast.
Testing the alternator for AC leakage can anyone help me understand the results, as videos i have seen say AC leakage should...
So I had a spare half hour this morning and thought why not do a compression test.....
What do these results mean?
No1 180 dry
N02 180 dry
No3 177 dry
No4 185 dry
No1 210 wet
No2 210 wet
No3 180 wet
No4 210 wet
Have a got a potential issue with no 3?
I have a 159 2.4 auto with the Garrett turbo from the manual version.

I decided to do a compression test on my GT v6 as I am at the critical mileage and wanted to see if I need to do any more work while I am doing the timing belt. For info, the engine is fine but has a rough idle. Doesn't burn any oil, no coolent loss bar what is leaking out of the radiator and...
Three Alfa's this time
Under the hammer at £9.4k + commission etc
This was a real bargain - I had a really good look over it and although I couldn't get underneath could see it was in really good condition, paint was excellent -...
As the topic would suggest. I've recently had mine done (210hp 2.4) and I'm trying to gauge if it's a "good" map or not.
So I was curious to see what others had managed.
I'm also keen to know what the torque limit is for the drivetrain too, if anyone has specific knowledge?

Took my care to its first ever dyno day today, just to see what it was producing. i understand there not always very accurate and also...
I haven't much experience compression testing so just wanted to run by what I've done because the figures don't seem great to say the least.
I've only got a cheap tester but got the following results;
100 - 100 - 95 - 105
This is on a cold engine, no oil down bores, Outside...
After seeing the wheeler dealers episode with the Jaguar in which they terra clean the car and make it all new again! I called up my local Terra-clean agent and booked the Giulietta in for a treatment.
I have read a lot of negative reviews on the internet (and quite a few positive ones to be...
