Re: Alfa 159 Sportwagon jtdm TI

All I'd say is be careful with any remaps...

It's basically the same as what our Croma was... 150bhp 1.9 multijet 320Nm torque.

Re: Alfa 159 Sportwagon jtdm TI

yeah same engine. I'm not really planning a remap in the immediate future really, i just can't help looking. Even if i did i wouldn't go for a balls out map, just the cloverleaf map so it would essentially still be a oem spec car except i don't think they did the cloverleaf spec engine in the 159 SW ever, don't quote me on that mind, i'm not an alfa expert at all.. But the 1.9 jtdm GT coupe cloverleaf has 170bhp and 330Nm so its not a huge amount more but also has a LSD which mine does (AFAIK).

The GT uses a c530.5 gearbox, the 1.9 159 has the M32 cheese bearings box.

Re: Alfa 159 Sportwagon jtdm TI

Andy, the van was pretty grown up and practical, or at least it was until i lowered it haha. Stilo was very sensible car as well.

Re: Alfa 159 Sportwagon jtdm TI

oooft, i love the 159, atleast it was a good upgrade from the 156. alfa did well there!

hope you have many many miles trouble free. if anything a good remap should do no harm, Gus at alfatune knows his stuff, if i could recommend anyone itd be him.
