    Alfa 159 2.4 JTDM Sportwagon TI

    That’s the plan. I got all the replacement fittings for the pump and low pressure lines from them.

    Day 25: Checked PAS fluid, it’s not there.... f**k sake. Of course it had two leaks..... so now I’ve found it... This bit of hose between two hard lines, it’s only 2” ffs!

    Day 22: 500 miles done after fixing it and all is fine.... the PAS leak I thought I still had was mainly down to the fact the subframe is hollow and full of PAS fluid from the big leak.... so its all slowly finding its way out. It also makes a weird noise on throttle initially (like belt...

    I’m just going to press them in with some epoxy, the map sensor will blow out before they do!

    It already has the 4 hole EGR plate. It’s pissing boost out of the swirl spindles, so I don’t think I’ll notice the loss in torque.

    Bought a used inlet manifold. Split it open to see the state they get in! Just look at it!! The total inlet should be 48mm, this one was down to 28mm at the narrowest. Also the swirl flap ports which are needed for the cold start are totally blocked! Can’t wait to get this one cleaned up...

    Day 17. 200 miles after getting it back on the road and it’s still weaping PAS fluid. Where the f**k is it coming from? Everything, pump, tank and lines, are new! How can it leak? Also the new aux belt is 0.5mm wider than the old one so it rubs on the other belt that passes it. Grrr. Other...

    New car - Jaguar F-type V8

    It wasn’t traction limited. I was using it for my commute from London to MK every day. It was doing 34mpg, awesome! But Pin it off the Cranfield junction to the M1 and you’ll be merging at over 160mph. Pull out to pass traffic and you’ll pull in at over 120mph without any fuss. Take it on a...

    New car - Jaguar F-type V8

    No good on a track, too fast for the road. Pretty simple. A lot of people driving 170bhp hot hatches didn’t really get it though.

    Alfa 159 2.4 JTDM Sportwagon TI

    Day 15. It’s being an Alfa again. Warning lights on for both my side lights, which were fine for the last 2 days... I’m also getting a weird noise when first making boost, but only at around 1bar, at 1.6bar it’s not there.. Will check all the inlet pipe work I had off first. Worst case is a...

    So tonight..... fitted the side light bulbs shouted at the aux belt that won’t go on called the air con fitting that’s seized on a c**t loud enough to be told off by a passer by. This evening wasn’t a success.

    Not sure what day we are on with it now. Still on axle stands and no one seems fussed about posting stuff quickly. The guy with my wheels said they’d be ready 2 days late too! The pas pump came today, so I slung that on in the dark, what a t**t to get back in to its casing, seemed just raving...
