  2. MCSF in 3rd @ 100 kmh WOT, 1st gear no boost, very low air mass readings, BAD MPG

    Non Motoring Images
    Erm, a dusty trail, a field, a stream, a big idiot, and the M3. You can probably work out which is which :biglaugh: I don't know why, but I'm strangely drawn to those spaces either side of roads, especially motorways. Only millimetres separate the rush of traffic and people getting on with...
  5. Unstable boost at wot

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I decided to make a MES log, before deleting DPF and noticed that the boost pressure is quite unstable at wot. The gauge is also varying from 100 to 200 mbar. Could it be Map sensor? Was cleaned at the same time of manifold and egr-off ... I never noticed before because i like to look at the...
  6. TS: what is the stock ignition advance at WOT ?

    Engines (TS, JTS, JTD & V6)
    Hi, Would someone know the ignition advance stock TS engines must have ? According to OBDII I'm getting 21 degrees on my 1.8TS from 4000rpm up to 7000 which looks low. 1.8 or 2.0 should be close to each other. If by chance you had the air flow at WOT I'd be interested as well. Thanks

  8. Big hesitation problem on WOT

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Today my 2.0 TS GTV seems to have developed a problem :( When I accelerate on wide open throttle the engine massively hesitates and bogs down. It gets so bad that the revs wont actually climb any more. If I ease off the throttle a bit, to around 80% the car revs freely again. In fact if I...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Just picked up my GT 1.9 JTDm and all was fine on the journey home and then the music stopped!! The radio is still showing a display etc so can't be a fuse so I am only guessing there must be a loose connection on the speakers. Has anybody else experienced such issies? I am hoping to get a...
