  4. Alfa Giulietta
    Hi Guys, Some weeks ago I bought a Giulietta QV TCT Launch Edition in Magnesio Grigio. Last weekend I went to BR Performance in the Netherlands to give her a bit more grunt. We installed a BMC filter, removed the middle silencer and put here on a dyno to remap the software. And well, what can...

    This is my Alfa Romeo MiTo QV from South Africa... i have been using chip boxes for a while, as i needed to find a tuner whom was willing to put in time into the car, and in doing so the results are great...we have found the hidden torque limiters aswel. The car was recently dyno'd and made...

    We were very happy with our figures at the ARCSA dyno day today. My GQV manual with only intake, dp, and Kspec software ran 191wheel kw and 389nm with stock exhaust from dp, stock turbo, and stock cooler. Was with 98 octane fuel. Kishens MitoQV ran 130wheel kw and 314nm with intake, dp, and...

    Bear with me here! My 1.6 is quicker than standard (2.0 inlet cams throttle body, cf1 downpipe) and this makes me a happy man. However, I just got a new job and this makes me happy. The commute is now 20miles around 35/40 mins. Me and Nero are happyish. Only ish as the gearing is now a bit...

    As always, advice appreciated. I’ll try not to ramble, but there’s a decent amount of info I want to convey in order to hopefully get some reasonable advice. Car details: 98 CF2 2.0TS 130k ish miles. Fast road cams and remap fitted 5k km ago. New spark plugs fitted at same time. Car does...

    What for exhaust would be the best for a heavily modified GTA with mods like the 3750cc kit, a turbo etc? A custom made exhaust by a proper exhaust shop or an aftermarket exhaust? If a custom, what for type of exhaust should it be (for example: de-cat, type of silencer etc.) If an aftermarket...
  11. Tuning & Upgrades
    Good Day fellow Alfa lovers! I have just been wondering if there are any Alfa Romeo Tuning Clubs in Cape Town, South Africa? I know there is a normal Alfa Club, but I am looking to join, or start one if there isn't one. I have started racing this year, nothing professional, just like Street To...

    Anytime I hear the word Cosworth my hands come out in a nasty rash. IMHO, they were the ultimate affordable boy racing 'tuned' engines, and as a consequence, around S. London, where I grew up, if ever a car was nicked, it was always a fast Sierra (probably a Cosworth) or Escorts. My...

    Last week friday I went to wish the guys at MRD a good new year and was told that I just missed HennieV. He fitted a boost controller and was fiddling with the turbo set-up. Unfortunitely I didn't grab a dyno sheet, but the GTV made 400whp (300wkW) on the MRD dyno. I can't wait for a spin in...

    ...so I saw this car in traffic this morning and recall that a CPI stage 2 promisses 330kW for the A45 AMG... http://i10.photobucket.com/albums/a103/emcon1/Car%20pics/20141119_080417.jpg Imagine that. Here we are talking about 300bhp and this dude is doing it in kW! :wow: Anyway, strange as...

    So its been nearly 6 months since i found and bought my Gt cloverleaf q2. And i now feel i am at a great place with the car and how she handles. Eibach ARB kit and Eibach pro s coilovers were fitted and recently a weichers alu strut brace. I have lowered the car again since Autolusso fitted the...

    Hi, I'm in the early stages of buying my next car, currently looking at what is on the market. I've always like the idea of having an Alfa, never took the plunge though. I'm considering the Mito TCT - due to a spinal injury I must have an auto, and I would love to have a car that is quick but...

    Interested to know if torque steer is a massive issue with the gqv. Especially with remapped qv's. Lj has a superb g with massive bhp. Interested to hear from him and others out there

    So a year or so ago, Pogea racing came out saying the 4C can push out a lot more power (even with the TCT box which AR claims can only handle 350 torque). Well the owner of Pogea racing bought a 4C LE for himself and has started working on chip tuning his 4C. See...
