Item description

Alfa Romeo 146 Ti Alpine Turbo
The turbo conversion was done when the car had about 5000 KM on the odo.
Pistons are standard.
Conrods are standard but shortened to drop the compression ratio to 9.0:1
2 x Extra fuel injectors for more fuel controlled via a Gotech mini X system.
The standard Bosch M1.5.5 management remains on the car.
Boost is set at 0.5 bar pressure although this setup can easy handle 0.8 bar. I left it at 0.5 for extra peace of mind.
Adjustable Koni shocks with a 30mm Eibach drop.
16" Yokohama A-drive tyres 205/45/16 +-75% Thread left. Tyres are still Very Good.
Madman EGT gauge installed.
Decent sized concealed intercooler.
TIM boost gauge installed
The standard plastic intake plenum was replaced with a twin spark CF1 Alluminium plenum.
Turbocharger was replaced with a Mitsubishi TD04H 16T
Power reading was +- 135KW on the wheels.
This car has been looked after like a real Alfisti looks after their Alfa Romeo. The turbo setup is unique and one of a kind. It has been reliable in all ways possible. I have just completed a long distance trip with no hassles what so ever.
Due to it being my only means of transport together with a family I feel that my 146 Ti should not be the car for which I am currently using it for. It breaks my heart as I would rather see this car in ownership where it can be used rather as a unique collectors items or any other use than what I am currently using it for. Also I will beneeding a larger family vehicle as the 146 has proven to be slightly on the small side for my current needs.
Fuel consumption on the open road at a steady 120 to 130 KM/H is in the region of 13.8 to 14.1 KM to the litre. It is rather very efficient.
The current mileage is 078141 KM which is very low. The car was owned previously by people who have a love and passion for Alfa Romeo.
The cambelt service was done at 74000KM.
The oil used and that is currently in the car is Castrol Edge sport 10W60.
