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...
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...
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?
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...
SOLVED: 159 1750 TBi, messy rattle when warm
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...
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...
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?
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?:-)
i have 159 tbi with 135k km, i want to rebuild my turbo and replace the oil feed pipe as preventive maintenance due to high oil consumption, probably worn turbo.
is this the correct parts required to do the job?
71724433 this is the correct turbo PN? i want to order melett CHRA turbo core, is...
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...
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 /...
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...
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...
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...
Just looking up the stats for the new W Series Race car, turns out they are using an Italian race car ,the Tatuus F3 T-318 which uses the Alfa 1750 TBI pushing out 270BHP, just goes to show what a good engine it is.
Hi. Does anybody could Help me. My silicone tubes from Turbo wastegate Controll was damaged and I changed them. But now I need the advice where are the right connectors on the turbo. It has 3 ports on the valve and 3 connectors on turbo.
Where they are need to connected.
I drive an Lancia Delta...
My 159 Ti TBI has developed an infrequent and intermittent 'dip' in power, when getting up to speed (usually in 4th gear between 2.5k - 3.5k rpm but has happened once in 6th, too). The turbo appears to drop boost. The car doesn't lose speed, but won't accelerate.
Sadly, I don't have an...
So we've had our SW TI TBi for 3.5 years and now need a change..... however I can't seem to shift the bugger!
With this being such a rare model (SW TI TBi with rails) there is literally no comparable car on the market that anyone can price against other than the glut of JTDs, which frankly are...
