Alfa 159 Ti

Daily Power is a work in progress but boost is at 3500mbar and fuel is flowing at 130mm3 so it should be good for a solid 800NM+ as a daily driver 🙂 #noSmokenoPoke


  • Base Model: 2008 159 TI 2.4 JTDM QTRONIC (Diesel)
  • Base Power: 200bhp / 400nm @ the flywheel
  • Dyno Power: 317WHP / 793NM @ front wheels (with Water/Meth 500cc) @ 3200mbar
  • Daily Power: TBC WHP / TBC NM @ front wheels (with Water/Meth 1000cc) @ 3500mbar


The run above had a faulty water/meth controller which is why its a little jumpy!

  1. Please can you tell me what size’s the halo led rings are?
    And where to buy the correct size to fit my
    2006 alfa romeo 159 2.4 jtdm.

    With thanks

  2. Hi
    Some excellent work there, I’m looking at changing my boost gauge in the dash any tips you have would be appreciated?



  3. I have seen people do it but to make it look factory its not easy. Also the current gauge is electronic so switching it for a high reading pressure activated one is a pain. That said because it is electronic you can simply adjust the scale it reads in the ECU during the remap process so that its max reading is your new, higher max pressure. so while the numbers don’t add up anymore on the gauge it does tally with the actual boost 🙂

  4. Wow fantastic job!
    I was wondering why you leave the MAF sensor in the intake and not choosing for a delete. Did you upgraded it or is the stock one?

  5. The stock MAF can flow more than enough air for large turbo’s, spooling one up with the gas from 5cyl’s is your biggest problem. There really is no need to mess with it unless you are changing pistons, rods, bearings and studs which won’t help anyway as your head will crack above 3.75bar absolute pressure, so you would also need a custom machined billet head, valvetrain, cams etc.

    Take my advice, keep absolute pressure under 3.75bar, ideally below 3.5bar, so if you want to have more than a few thousand miles per head, stay under that 🙂

    Happy Modding!

  6. Thanks for responding so nicely.
    I have another question. I saw that you have installed an evac scavenger. Did you see any benefit on this solution? I vent to atmosfere (2.0 JTDM) and for now i don’t have any issue for now like a lot of people say, but if I will go to vent into the exhaust, what tipe of benefit I will achive?

  7. Venting to atmosphere, or the exhaust via an e-vac scavenger setup, achieves the exact same outcome. No oil in the intake. The benefit of you switching from one to the other is negligible.

  8. Hey

    I know this was from a while ago but would be interested to know how you went out fitting your aftermarket oil cooler
    (18 row Mocal oil cooler (235mm))

    Did you get some adapters made for the standard pipes? TIA
