  1. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hello guys! I owe an Alfa 159 TBI which was remaped to 235HP already when I bought. It is in daily use since I bought (1 year)and at the beginning I've experienced a turbo pressure drop to 0 once in a month when I accelerated in the 4/5th gear. I remaped the ECU to 253HP/399Nm. 2 month after...
  2. Tuning & Upgrades
    Hello, did someone changed the Petrol High Pressure pump from an a 1,75 TBI Euro 5 to an Euro 6 from later Giulietta QV or 4C? My Fuel Pump is now 13 Years old an runned 180k Kilometers. Sometimes Engine starts and stalls after few seconds. Sometimes i feel some power loss, it feels like less...
  3. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hi! I jump started my car a while ago due to a dead battery and then the check engine light appeared. I read the error with an obd bluetooth scanner and this appeared: P1135. I changed the battery, cleared the error with obd bluetooth reader and it appeared again on the next drive. Then cleared...
  4. Alfa Giulietta
    Hi, My catalytic converter seems to glow red hot after fast-paced driving. I'm not so sure if it should be red? It's not like it's glowing between gaps under the hood, but when I open it and look behind the manifold cover the cat it's red (during the night). No errors. New oxygen sensor (first...
  5. Motoring Images
    I've been asking for some advice here before/after purchasing a Brera. Thought it would be nice to share some first photos in return. No questions this time, just enjoy the pictures! First attempt to take some images of the Alfa that I own since a month now. The car wasn't cleaned and was still...
  6. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hi everyone. I've bought my tbi a couple of months ago (not my first 159) and went straight to the shop, to get the gearbox bearings replaced (they were already noisy in 5th and 6th) and after that was done, I started having issues shifting into 1st gear. I don't have to use force or anything...
  7. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    I recently spoke with Peter Cambridge at PCA Dynamics who mentioned Alfa and Prodrive planned to make an S version using the TBI engine on later Brera's. Does anyone know if this ever got beyond the idea phase and if any specs / pictures were ever devised? Thanks Nick
  8. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Does anyone else have the Ulter sports back boxes fitted to their Brera. I fitted them about 2 weeks ago. I have read everything I can but the drone from about 2-4K is unbearable. I am about to revert back to the stock exhaust. The resonance at points makes me feel sick, noise is terrible...
  9. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    hi, im trying to find a new membrane for my pcv valve but cant find a part number or anyone who replaced it. anyone here had luck with finding the part?
  10. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    SOLVED: 159 1750 TBi, messy rattle when warm Dear specialists, During my holiday in France it seems my car developed a messy rattle during coasting and light throttle. The noise is only there when the engine is warmed up! Air conditioning setting has no influence. The problem is I can hear it...
  11. Tuning & Upgrades
    Hi. I have readed that someone upgraded the Fuel Pressure Pump in front of the Rail on an Alfa 1,75 TBI to an more stronger one. Did someone know something about? I want to install it on the 200HP one, and not on 4C they did. OR do someone if we could mod the Giulia 2.0TBI one on the Old...
  12. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    I have a recurring engine management fault- it reads 'P2237/$1 0 O2 Sensor positive current control circuit/open bank 1 Sensor 1 I changed the upper O2/ Lambda sensor (the one just below the manifold) but the fault keeps recurring, and l keep clearing it. Any thoughts anyone?
  13. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hello there! Im looking to get some power out of my tbi by installing the turbo from Giulietta QV and get i mapped. My question is, is it a straight fit to the 159 or is there any modification i should do?:-)
  14. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider

  15. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    I'm at my wits end and could do with some help.... :grumpy: Okay, I left it sat for over 2 weeks, but when I went back to drive it, battery had absolutely nothing to give. Called the AA, they got it going but the battery was reading 2 volts before they started it. I want to disconnect the...
  16. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    I suspect I know what the answer to this question is and why but I'll ask anyway. From what I understand, the G Qv tbi uses a K04 turbo and the 159tbi a K03? As an upgrade to the 159 turbo, is it possible to simply fit a K04 cartridge into the 159 turbo manifold/housing? Or are fans /...
  17. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hi Everyone, My daily driver is a GT Cloverleaf 170 Q2. I have a Brera 2009 3.2S in Touring Grey with 60K miles. I have just impulsively purchased a Brera TBI Black 2011 with 36K. The TBI came with little information but from the limited info I have been able to find it has the sliding blind...
  18. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    My lovely 159 2.4 JTDM will fall foul of the the London pollution charge when the area is extended to the north and south circular next year. One cure might be to trade in for a TBI model. But I have a Sportwagon and I need the load space. I have not seen adverts for TBI Sportwagon's for sale...
  19. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hi folks, I noticed my TBi started marking its spot. It used to have a leak at the heat exchanger, but it was replaced fully and serviced at the same time somewhere last year. I took the sump "guard" off and it was a big mess. Seems the filter housing is leaking a little on the driveshaft...
