It doesn't. Wrong gearbox I'm afraid.. Its such a shame too as the Q2 is a brilliant little unit.
What is it about it that makes it not fit? Could a kit be made up to make it fit or on bit be modified to make it fit economically?

I think it would just be too big physically for the gearbox. It is bigger than the standard diff in the V6, its a close fit.

I'll explain below.. :D

Alfa Romeo have "two" gearboxes, the V6/JTD box, and the Twinny box. They also use some other gearboxes, and the V6/JTD gearbox comes in 5-speed or 6-speed varieties.

In the 156/147/GT, the Q2 will fit:

1.9 16v JTDm (6 speed V6/JTD box)
2.4 10v JTD (5 speed V6/JTD box)
2.5 V6 (6 speed V6/JTD box)
3.2 V6 (6 speed V6/JTD box)

It will not fit:

1.6/1.8/2.0 TS/JTS (Twinny box)
2.4 JTDm 20v (6-speed Vauxhall F40 box)

I'm not sure about the 1.9 8v JTD, I think this car has a 5-speed box, if it is the 5-speed V6/JTD box (like from the 2.4 10v JTD), then it will fit, but it might be a totally different gearbox, it might have been easier for Alfa to use a cheaper gearbox in a less powerful car.

They changed the ratios slightly.. So the actual cogs are custom to the GTA. But the gearbox itself is the same as one from a 2.5 V6..

I have a sponge for a brain. Everything I've learnt I've read on here and elsewhere, and picked up from the few Alfa mechanics I've used and spoken to.. :)

Alfa releasing the Q2 is the best thing they ever did for the GTAs.

I have had the Q2 on my 3.0 V6 GTV 6-speed for well over a year now - it's great.

Alfapedz - if the quaife unit fits a 1.8TS it will surely fit a 2.0TS too.
