  1. 1.8 to 2.0 Tspark engine switch

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi I’m thinking of switching my 1.8 tspark engine to a 2.0 tspark engine. Just wondering if it’s possible, and if it is, the best way to go about doing it.
  2. 156 T-Spark 2004 Door Mirror spring

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    My Grandson pushed the Driver side (Right) door mirror the wrong way. This has caused the mirror to be floppy. I am aware that there is a simple solution to repairing the mirror as the spring has become detached. About 4 years ago I watched a video on how to reattach the spring. I can not find...

  6. GTV T-spark - improving breathing

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I've now read dozens of threads about GTV intake systems and the more I read the less certain I am! I am looking to help by 2002 T-Spak breathe a little better....I have a nice stainless exhaust to go and and have started looking at the intake. The set up looks restrictive but I also don't want...
  7. GTV T-spark temp gauge movement

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    After a couple of years away from Alfas I've bought a GTV T-spark as a toy - its a ph3 2002 and it works very well and looks great in black. There are a few foibles the worst of which is the temperature gauge which seems to dance depending on speed and revs. On a run it will sit just above 90...

  9. Front Exhaust Mounting bracket for TSpark

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    If anyone has a front exhaust mounting bracket for a TSpark, please can you get in touch. NOT the ally bridge thingy on the sump but the dodgy mounting behind which stops the pipe from sagging onto the bridge thingy. None of the usual suspects list it or any of the individual bits, which is odd...

  11. Front exhaust mount needed 4 Tspark

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    If anyone has a front exhaust mount for a tspark, please get in touch. I need the actual pipe clamp piece most but wouldn't turn down the complete thing. For the avoidance of doubt, I don't mean the alloy casting "bridge" but the Heath Robinson contrivance, just behind it, that's supposed the...

  13. Give up on my tired 147 JTD for a freshed 1.6 TSpark? Or keep going for 200k?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi All, I'd like to hear some thoughts. I have my 147 JTDM TI. It's just passed 148000. Last year was not a good year for it. I hit a truck tyre on the M53 that took out my bumber and aircon rad and bent some bits. I was so attached that I brought it back Class C from the insurer for £400 and...

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi everyone. Another niggle on my GTV recently has reared its head on the drivers side window. Basically when you go to put the window up, when it gets to the top you get a nasty grinding noise and feels like the window is going to pop out. Well eventually it threw itself off the runner...

  19. 156 2.0 T.Spark emissions again.

    Introduce Yourself
    Hi Alfa lovers, I have recently purchased my first Alfa. Had a Fiat Stilo for the last 10 years. So its a 156 Selespeed with a 2.0 T.Spark. I don't understand why the DVLA have rated it with 240 G/Kg emissions when other motoring websites list it as 205/212. Otherwise I love this car.
  20. Who's tried to start a P2 GTV T-Spark after 8 years ??!!

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    OK so I figured something might not go quite to plan at the outset, but....... New fuel pump, it primes, if I pull the pipe off the engine rail it fills a jam jar nice and quickly.... Oil and filter change, spark plug clean, I turned the engine over upto oil pressure was reached before hand a...
