Here's a quick vid of the exhaust in latest form. Was a potential new design Wizard was working on with a bigger volume chamber and quite different internals. My phone camera does it no justice at all, and it sounds incredible under load : )
Not sure if the new backbox is going to go into...
The car is a 2005 GT that has gone 110 000 km.
To keep it short: A couple of days ago, on the highway, I needed to shift gear to idle. Doing this, the RPM dropped to idle (approx 1000?), while still moving at considerable speed (110-120 km/h). I then shifted again to the fifth gear, as...

I've had my lovely twin-park for for months now. Very pleased with it but for lack of sound, aren't twin cam Alfas meant to sound alive? It had a k&n cone fitted which hadn't done the maf any good - runs much better with the standard air box.
I believe that the resonator box does nothing but...

Hi all as title suggests whilst pulling away and just before I come to a stop I get a creaking sound from the passenger side of the car, I origionally thought it was coming from the back now I suspect that it is the front. I have replaced lower wishbones, upper wishbones, drop links, shocks and...
So I've started noticing that there is a distinct whining sound coming from the engine compartment when I accelerate hard.
I suspect it might be the turbocharger or one of it's hoses or connections.

My 156 1.8TS (CF3 engine) has developed a peculiar buzzing/sawing sound :o. The sound only occurs between 1,700 and 2,100 rpm. Here is a link to an mp3 of the sound:

Could it be a catalytic converter, heat shield, or other? It appears to be coming...
I have a 2010 159 tbi with 40K on the clock.
Over the past few months I've noticed that the front end has started to creak / groan with a slight knock thrown in for good measure.
Where's the best place to start to look?
Could you advise please on most probable damage.
I've just completed an 800 mile journey in my 156 1.9jtdm. It performed faultlessly. I checked the oil prior to my journey but this morning on starting the car the engine knocked loudly. I checked the oil and there was nothing on the stick. I...
Hi folks! Hoping someone can advise on this noise! :)
It's on a 08 1.9 tdi Cloverleaf GT and is coming from the front of the car, seems to be coming from passenger side.
It's worryingly loud and the noise sounds similar to that of a wrecked bearing noise. Its defo not the brakes and I don't...

Am hoping someone can help! I've recently bought this upgrade kit
And these connectors...

I have a strange problem that my mechanic did not come across yet. As a result he wants to open the engine, remove the block and all. That means huge expenses and I want to avoid that if...
