  1. Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi everyone. I'm a relatively new Alfa owner, and absolutely love the car. However I have some issues with it, that I'm trying to figure out. One of the problems that I'm having is that it sometimes won't hit boost in 2nd gear. The boost gauge shows pressure as normal, but the car runs like a...
  2. Alfa MiTo
    Hello I'm thinking about putting a turbo charger in a 1.4 petrol MiTo and I haven't been able to find anything online discussing if the internals on the model without OEM turbo would be strong enough to have a turbo put on. Any replies on this would be greatly appreciated thank you

    Hey, I don’t know if anyone has any advice but the turbo has started playing up on my 2l jdtm. As soon as the turbo reaches temperature it stops boosting and kicks up the fault code turbo boost position sensor. In that little time the boost is working it blows back air through the intake when...

    Dear, Alfa Romeo owners, A problem with turbo boost occured after oil leak fix from engine (valve cover seal and oil pump seal) - though it might be there before. So when cruising in city (50 - 60 km/h) turbo gauge sometimes start to drop and rise with no reason - the drop is so small you...

    Hi everyone, I have a diesel Alfa 159 2008 Quatronic. I have a turbo problem since I fix engine water plug crack 1 week ago. When I first start my engine, after 4-5 km run, turbo losses power and closed, then my car wont able to run more than 50 km/h. After that, I stop my car and re-start...

  8. Alfa MiTo
    Hey guys, I'm looking for a bit of advice regarding a MiTo I saw today. I went to view a TB120 today to replace my current car, almost identical minus leather but plus BOOST. Car has been really well looked after, drive great, but has what looks like an unfortunate supermarket car park...
  9. Alfa Giulietta
    So bought a multiair 13 plate a couple of weeks ago. When I accelerate hard the turbo kicks in nicely but that around 4000rpm I loose boost for half a second. Now it only seems to do this in the first 15 mins of driving. Is this normal? Is this just because the engine isnt warm enough yet? I...
  10. Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    First 2 weeks of owning my 2.4 210 sportwagon and I’ve enjoyed the car a lot (over 2000 miles already). I’ve noticed some slight issues however. On harsh acceleration above 3.5k it puts out a fair bit of black smoke, and from lower revs on moderate to harsh acceleration there’s a quite high...
  11. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    EDIT: A complete system appeared in Cornwall, and is on the way to me. So seems the worst is over. Only needed the front end up to and including the cat, but the rear half does not hurt to have. Thanks for the PMs received. --------------------------------------------- Hi all, My...
  12. 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?
  13. 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...
  14. 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...

    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...

    How much can I buy an Alfa Romeo turbo charge ?
  17. 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...
  18. 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...
  19. Tuning & Upgrades
    Greetings friends ! Right now i am collecting some parts for my 156 1.8 Twinspark engine. My plan is to build a turbo upon this engine. I already have a turbo and manifold from an alfa 156 jtd 16v. I would like to have (if there is chance) some small advice on downpipe/the rest of the exhaust...
  20. 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...
