It’s been a hell of a trial but I’m happy to have her back to normal Simon (still keeping fingers crossed!)

I'm marking this one as SOLVED!

The original battery negative earth cable goes to chassis and then onto gearbox. My original cable was frayed between chassis and battery so I snapped it off leaving the original cable between chassis and replaced the chassis to battery portion with a cable from ebay.

It turns out the ebay cable wasn't sufficient when on full boost, and cut the engine power. When I replaced the earth terminal to chassis to gearbox cable with one from an Alfa 147 JTD and cleaned up all connections the issue went away.

Hi MM,

This stalling is definitely a separate issue to this one. I suspect an air leak as one of the things I did when looking for this issue was tighten all boost pipes and may have been over zealous and one has now sllit!

That's v bad luck Gunzi,

I hope its a quick find and you can get a new hose as soon as possible if that's the cause. Must have developed a big tear quickly for it to go so bad so quickly-no chance pipe is off completely somewhere?

She is fighting you at the moment but you will get there.

MM

edit reason...spelling!
