  2. Rolling road traction control issue on Mustang 4wd linked rolling road

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hi, After considering a remap for my 2013 Giulietta jtdm 170 for a while I decided to go with either NJS who I think supply the Celtic map or Viezu. I decided with Viezu in the end as they had a rolling road and the sales guy seemed helpful and told me that they would be able to put the new...

  4. Rolling road results GTV V6

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    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...

  6. Rolling radius

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I have started this as I don't want to ruin the other thread ,so copy & pasted from that
  7. Keeping rolling radius the same?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Am thinking of splashing out on some 17" multi spokes to replace my 16" teles. Currently have 205/55/16 and new wheels are 225/45/17. So effectively I'm increasing the rolling radius by 12.5mm. Will I notice this on my 1.8 156? Don't want to lose any low end torque. Can you buy 205/40/17 tyres...
  8. GTA rolling road - could be better still?

    Alfa GTA
    Had my GTA tested on a rolling road yesterday. It has a squadra ecu remap, Madeno catback and cf2 manifolds fitted. Result was a healthy 268hp and 319Nm, so not bad. link to movie: However....when looking at the graph, I find it strange that after 6000rpm no additional horses are joining the...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    HI, I would just like to let you Southerners know about TH Performance based in Havant in Hampshire (near Portsmouth). He has just done a rolling road remap on my 2.4 Brera and what a difference. I cleaned out the DPF and blanked the EGR myself and gave it to Terry to sort the rest. I can post...

    Looking for some guidance on selling a step front that has been dismantled and prepped for painting but needs more work to finish the body. All welding (not much though) has been done but needs finishing off / skimming. Apparently all original panels. It is 1971 1300 GT Junior with 38,000...

  15. Rolling Road set up

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    As I have now done 1600 miles I thought it was time that I had the car properly set up on a rolling road thingy. The 2000 has had the following changes, tubular steel manifold and exhaust, 123 dizzy, ram pipes and H/C piston set. Since I had gone through the 'running in' process I felt that...

  17. 164 twinspark rolling 'chassis' with engine

    Alfa 164 & 166
    Hi, I've been stripping my 1995 twinspark 164 to rebuild my other twinspark and am left with a great bodyshell, no front wings or bumpers/lights/interior, and brilliant engine/gearbox. It seems a real shame to scrap such wonderful kit but the garage it's stored in is costing me £700 a year...
  18. Rolling road dyno

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hello everyone :) This is my first post. I've been on rolling road dyno few days ago. Power and torque looks good. AFR has improved as well.(previous dyno showed AFR 10.0). The only downside is something wrong over 4500 RPM. Does anyone know what that it mean. Someone said that can be a clutch...

    Hi all After a 3 year absence while I built my house, I am back with my violent red sud sprint emerging from the garage all ready to just be finished like it just needed finishing three years ago. Just finished literally means having the new motor and carbs set up on a rolling road used to...
  20. Annoying noise - like a stone rolling from side-to-side

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Think I must have a small stone, or something lodged in the subframe / chassis - it sounds like a stone or similar object rolling from side to side when cornering slightly harder than normal in corners. It's nothing serious, that I'm sure of. It's not a suspension issue or anything like that. It...
