I have a 2001 2.0 TS which is a really nice runner and has been well maintained, but...

I gave a mate a lift the other day and he commented that it whines like it has a super charger, I think I know what he means, its when the revs are below about 3k and at low throttle openings. It has a standard Alfa exhaust.

My question, is this just the engine note or do I have an issue? I might just be being paranoid...
It pulls well and has no flat spots. Any thoughts/comments appreciated!

thanks,

Mine has exactly the same whine. I really like it, and it does sound like a super charger. I haven't had it diagnosed yet though.

My engine kind of has a whine and although I've never been in another Gtv, so I can't tell, I reckon the engine sounds like it should
Having said that, I took a mate out in it once and he asked me if it was a turbo...

I've been trying to sort this for ages. Mine whines at low revs too. Took it to an Alfa specialist but they couldn't identify the problem. I've noticed that the whine will dissapear when the passenger window is open, even just a crack. Above 3000 rpm the whine goes.

Mine whines too, gets louder towards the top, recent belt changes made no difference, I've spoke to 1 alfa specialist and 1 inde and both said they've herd it on others.

best cars in the world
