Had my new GT remapped yesterday by Angel Tuning. Not had a chance to really test it yet due to the wet roads but the amount of torque when cruising along in 3rd gear and then you slightly put your foot down is unreal. To a passer by I must have looked a nutter driving along a very quiet, long road nearby speeding up and then slowing down all the time :lol:

Anyhow to those considering getting it done to their diesel turbo.....erm.....do it.....and then have lots of fun. It really does make up for the not so attractive sound of a diesel I must say

The only thing (other than the cost, which isn't huge) that has stopped me doing it is the fact that you are advised to upgrade other parts at the same time?

Or am I wrong? I have just replaced my clutch, so hopefully there's some life in that yet!

Road dried out for a bit today so I gave it everything it has....wow that car can shift some!!! :wow:

Remap has also made the totally useless first gear 'almost' usable

If only diesels had a better soundtrack it would actually be the perfect car

Had my 2.4 156 done by Evolve in Luton a month ago and its incredible, even the sound isnt too bad on the 5 cylinder. Now I've ordered a K&N filter and am choosing a better exhaust - apparently thats the most important thing next.
I got better brakes ages ago as all Alfa brakes seem terrible - EBC/green stuff disks and pads are cheaper than main dealer and stop so much better - very important if you're playing with over 200BHP!

What exhaust you going for Matt?
With the diesels all you really want to do is increase the bore slightly, from the turbo all the way back, and chop out all the silencers/cats to have the most free-flowing system possible.

EBC are awful brakes and their quality control is very bad too:(

But what was told to you about the exhaust being important is correct as on turbo cars that is the best way to get power easily enough.

Sorry for so long coming back Graham. I dont know - looking on the various sites, none say whats good with this engine, I guess I'll have to go up to Autodelta or someone silmilar and take whats available.

My problem is theres never enough money left for the Alfa after my hot rod/kustom project and a classic resto, otherwise it would have been done long ago!

Hi Matt,

What power/torque did you get out of your remap? Looks like we've got the same engine/car and there isn't a huge amount of remap info on the 20v's.

Cheers,

Mark

Give Angel Tuning a shout Matt. They have quoted me a complete new sports exhaust for £650

Nice one G. I see you've gone down the diesel route.

ARUK are supplying me with the Q2 diesel now as my GT is crap. A re-map is the first thing on the cards. :D
