Hi

My first alfa never driven a 147 before but it seems to have lack of power all the way through the gear range ! It also judders at low revs every so often it nearly died completely pulling off in second gear .

I have changed the air filter to a k&n but replacing the standerd seems to have the same faults !

The power delivery seems constant the the drive but for 120bhp it just seems abit guttless like im thrashing it to make it go !

ive hooked up my snap on scanner and no faults have poped up . ive cleaned the thottle body which helped some has said the egr valve could be blocked !

I have ordered a new Maf sensor as some people said it dosnt always show up on diagnostics

any help or ideas would much apreciated


Many thanks Carman

It's a 1.6 in a relatively heavy car, it doesn't come on cam until around 3000RPM and then you have to rag it to the redline to get it to really perform.

A remap will resolve the sub 3000 lag you have and flatten out the delivery
