Hey fellow Alfa owners,
I have a Giulietta Veloce 2018 (1.75T, 240hp) and I was wondering about tuning the ECU.
I wanted to know whether there is someone in this forum that tuned his Veloce (2016-2018, and not the old QV which acted a little differently) and if so, which company did you use and how reliable are the results.
By reliability I mean - does your car still run smoothly 2 years after the software update without any special damages that may have resulted by this tuning along the way.
I looked at a few companies like CelticTuning,BR Performance, RevLimit and I don't know what is good.

In the past I've tried to tune with someone that mentioned he was using a BR Performance software - but even if he did, it was out dated. The car didn't launch very well, had less power at lower RPMs (up to 3,500-4,000) and it was really felt that it had much more before the tuning even though at 4000rpm it was stronger. Also it was weaker on higher speeds. So overall, wasn't an original BR perf probably and caused issues, the engine sounded weird like a diesel engine. I removed and returned to stock configuration within a week.

I wanted to try someone else, that takes from one of these companies and then also tunes a bit by himself and is generally regarded quite good. But I am very worried about maintaining the reliability of the car because I want to continue riding it for the years to come and not to have to change an engine or gearbox after a year with a little extra power.

Anyone had experience with this and can recommend / tell me not to do it because he had a bad experience , etc. ?

Never used them but AHM (alfacare.co.uk) are a well regarded alfa specialist. They do remaps for the giulietta and also do one for the TCT gearbox for faster shifts etc 馃憤馃徏

As long as you get a good map (preferrably a rolling road one to make sure fuelling is correct) you shouldn't have too many issues.

Obviously things will wear out faster if you use the power a lot, but in normal driving it probably wouldn't be an issue. It is also a good idea to shorten the service intervals and possibly use a better spec oil.

Ok sounds good. Have any of you been driving with such a remap? Theoretically I know things should be fine but give seen cases on other cars that were fine forever and some that had engine issues after a year or so.so that's my main concern
