  1. GTV TB - main cat plus matching front pipe (turbo outlet to main cat forward flange) wanted

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi all, My soon-to-be-TüVd (I hope) CF2 '99 GTV TB has a crumbling main catalyst. So I need to replace this (and perhaps change the front pipe too). If someone has a cat they'd like to sell, I'm all ears ... and to be honest, I'd grab a front pipe too if available. Sources on the mainland...
  2. Oil? Soot? On engine block next to turbo. Turbo failure imminent?

    Alfa Giulietta
    Looking at my turbo today and I noticed what looks like a little scorch mark on the top of the turbo. Lifted the small rubber bit next to the turbo (where the exhaust cam locking nut is) and notice a load of black oily soot. Power etc seems fine but is this an early sign of turbo failure?
  3. Small oil leak from turbo oil line, Dealer trying to charge for a new turbo!

    Alfa Giulia
    Hi all, (car: 2017 Giulia Veloce) So a couple weeks back, I noticed a small amount of smoke coming up from under the bonnet. Upon closer inspection I noticed oil and some oil residue around the top of the turbo, where the oil feed line enters. I called alfa assist and they took my car to my...
  4. Turbo issue

    Alfa MiTo
    So the other day I was on the dual carriageway doing about 65mph in 5th, pushed the clutch in to change to 6th and there was a loud "pop" noise from the engine bay. Pulled over, opened the bonnet, the entire air intake pipe to the turbo had detached itself. I pushed it back on, drive home...
  5. Alfa 159 Turbo Gauge

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi, My Alfa 159 turbo gauge reads 0 when at idle with engine cold, but when engine is warm, the gauge is not reading 0 at idle, it reads a little bit more than 0, not much, just a bit. Is that normal? I guess it was reading 0 before removing EGR electronically on the car. MAP is new also...

  7. 156 136cv Turbo update and other components

    Tuning & Upgrades
    Hello guys. I hope you are all well. I would like to know if you can ask me a question. My car is a 156 2.4 of 136hp. I'm about to upgrade the turbo, without spending so much money, and I've seen the GT2256V. What I believed was that this turbo derived only from 156 20v 175hp. But the seller...
  8. Spider 916 turbo - cambelt change

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    My recent purchase of a turbo charged twin spark has been going well. I need to swap the battery for new one but everything else is working as it should. I asked a couple of local Indies about a cambelt change and they said no as it's not a standard car. I use a experienced mechanic for...

  10. Alfetta GT Turbo

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    Please someone talk me out of this idea. I've found an Alfa 75 turbo engine, its a 1.8, just like the 1.8 in my Alfetta, but has fuel injection and an extra 30% power. I have a notion to make a modern turbodelta. I realise this is total madness, but I just can't help myself. I must be sick in...
  11. 75 turbo parts availability

    Alfa 75, RZ, SZ
    hi guys, I am considering buying an alfa 75 turbo engine, but it is incomplete. How difficult is it to find an oil pan for this engine? The parts book shows the turbo version has an oil line fitting in it from the turbo. I would also need a wiring harness, intercooler, oil cooler, afm, intake...
  12. Turbo actuator

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    My actuator has failed, i've tested it and once vacuum just drops off. Where is the best place to get a replacement, i've looked on ebay but i can't seem to see anyone selling the 150bhp ones. I'm also stuggling in finding part numbers, there are a couple of numbers on stickers (270706 121 and...
  13. Shaft play on turbo

    Alfa MiTo
    I've have shaft play on my turbo since late last year, with intermittent bouts of grey smoke out the exhaust at low speeds. It's become more frequent now, and I was thinking of changing the turbo myself. I've done it before although a mate helped who knows a lot more about mechanical work than...

    Car just been serviced and had a carbon clean done, since got the car back from a Alfa specialist in North London, everytime I put my foot down the turbo kicks in then lags for about 2 seconds then kicks in again, also I have a horrible covering of oil/ grease on the back of the car, there is an...
  15. Fiat + VW = My Fiat Uno Turbo project.

    General Motoring Discussion
    My project car is not for the faint hearted purists, as there is basically nothing left standard. The last addition of parts to the huge stock is a 6-speed DSG DQ250 gearbox, which means that I have to ditch my Omex 600 engine management system and buy this one...

    My turbo makes some odd chirruping noises (someone described it as a dolphin chattering) when its spooling up, I've been told its because the vanes are sticking and I need to take the pipes off and fill it with Mr Muscle to loosen them off, how much of a task is this? anyone got a H2? - thanks
  17. Alfa 159 3.2 JTS Ti manual fwd Remote Turbo Kit setup

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi all, out of interest, has anyone looking into turbo charging their 159 JTS (3.2 more specifically) in a remote setup configuration? I've been doing a lot of reading recently regarding remote turbo setups and because of the exhaust header positions of the 159 v6, a remote setup would be much...

  19. Turbo removal

    Alfa Giulietta
    What's the easiest way to remove and refit the turbo on a 1.4 Multiair? Just by undoing the four bolts on the flange and oil/coolant feed, or via removing the whole exhaust manifold?
