Alfa Romeo GT 2008- Help Modiftications/car upgrades
« on: January 21, 2020, 07:47:29 PM »
Hi all, this is my first post so be gentle..
I recently bought a 2008 GT 16V engine with 56k km. I am looking to do some body work modifications as well as engine/performance upgrades.
I know next to nothing about cars besides filling them up and adding water hahah. I am looking to grow and understand more as time passes and I feel this is a great place and time to start learning.
Any and all help in regards to body modifications (front and rear bumpers/side skirting,spoilers, exhaust, rims etc) as well as performance upgrades, what is good/recommended or what is not. As well as interior changes if any.
I am a full time carpenter so i drive a ute, my alfa is just for weekend driving/chilling with mates or going on dates. With that being said I would love my car to look and feel even more amazing than it already is. I personally feel it could be more powerful as i can feel it when i drive, though that could just be from going to a ute to a normal car...
I have no idea where to start in regards to upgrading what or making changes and im not sure if it is easy to get parts/upgrades here in Sydney.

Thank you all in advance :)

Hi and welcome.  Your best bet is to post over on the technical forums under '932', rather than on the State forum.

Welcome aboard and congratulations on your newly acquired Alfa Romeo GT. Just a couple of points to be mindful of and that is to check the oil level regularly, as JTS engines are prone to consume oil at a greater rate than what you would normally expect and secondly, maintain the vehicle as per OEM servicing requirements. As you are from Sydney you might want to check out AROCA NSW website or facebook page to keep abreast with club activities and events that are held. Links are as follows
