Its 1/3 bigger than original 16VT, ACC. to Setrab , Its rated for 170-230 bhp. I mounted it with side outlets for best flow ( oil gets everywhere And utilise whole Cooler) and best air pocket prevention.
Now I have to make sufficient ducting to this Cooler and can't continue with exhaust - i want to rework connections to Vband
I'm just about to change over to E85 based on the fact there are several 20vt running it here in France. One fella has been on it for the last 10 years using the car as a daily without any ethanol related issues - obviously after a remap.
In the UK I would use it as an opportunity to change to more modern EV14 injectors (especially if your injectors are original and bit "iffy" and the lack of OEM spares) and then remap. Its an opportunity!!!
Mine was a daily driver until respray earlier this month. It's back and looking lovely, with a few minor snags. I need to burst the bubble and get back out in it regularly. I love the car too much to save it for weekends only. For the time being, I'll go out when weather isn't too bad. I hate dirty cars.
You won't fix the powder coat, not without recoating. So yes it is a pro job. But if there's only some small marks you can touch with paint. The powder coat used should've had a RAL code (colour identification). If you know that you can get a paint the same colour.
If you don't know the exact colour, don't worry. You can get generic alloy silver touch ups that IMO can look quite good. But another avenue to explore - nail varnish. Loads of colours and as the bottle is clear you can see what the exact colour is. Just remember the clean and degrease before you apply any paint for maximum longevity
Like Jimboy, a few years ago I was returning home at night from a meet near Cambridge.
I was on the M11 southbound in heavy rain and visibility was so poor that I stopped at a service area simply to see if the headlights were working: They were. I fitted HID to the dipped beam a few days later. Never had anyone flashing me because I was dazzling them.
Looks like I will have to fit a spare set of lights for the MOT in future.
I bought a Stelvio QF 2 weeks ago today , it ran properly for all of 1 hour !! it's been in the Alfa dealership 5 times now for engine management warning light on - so it's locked in Eco mode because of it
Just called the dealer purchased from, they have been brilliant ...car has been rejected by me going back for full refund on Monday ....... the Afa dealership in Glasgow is a total joke have not got a clue ...
simply the worst dealership I have ever set foot in in my whole life !!! and at 63 I have been in a lot
So long as Arnold Clark is the Alfa dealer I won't consider one ever again !!
