I have had my Stelvio for 2 months and loving it. The drive is amazing and the throttle response is great.
Had to locate a vehicle with the specific equipment I wanted but worth the wait:

2018 ALFA ROMER STELVIO AWD
Exterior Color: Vesuvio Gray Metallic
Interior Color: Black/Black Interior Colors (Leather Seats)
Gloss Red Calipers with White Script
Black Roof Rails
Aluminum Interior Accents
Bright Aluminum Pedals
Sport Leather–Wrapped Steering Wheel
Steering Column–Mounted Aluminum Paddle Shifters
Sport–Tuned Suspension
Harman Kardon® Premium Audio
Sport AWD – Package 22J- 20–Inch x 8.5–Inch Sport Aluminum Wheels
255/45R20 All–Season Tires


Started to do some minor mods on it. :big-grin

EuroCompulsion - Here is the link: https://shopeurocompulsion.net/coll...alfa-romeo-stelvio-2-0l?variant=3343555493928


Loving it and you will tend to want to hear the blow off valve when the pressure lets off from the Turbo Spooling. /forum/images/smilies/smile.gif
How long did the V2 take to install? Were the instructions pretty accurate? I need to find the time to install mine.

Had the dealer install it for me.
Finally found the time to install my EC v2 intake. It was fairly easy to do if you watch the YouTube instructions for it. A couple of things to note that is different from the video instruction (since that was a Giulia on the EC video): there are more than 2 10mm bolts that hold down the airbox bracket (3 total). Also, on the of the hoses on top (not the two bottom ones connected via clip and not the large one on top also connected via clip) is harder to remove than on the video ( on the video, there was no clamp on their hose, whereas mine had one close to the inlet). I just had to use pliers to wiggle that off. Other than that, I think the instructions were spot on and it seems we have more room to work with in the Stelvio engine bay compared to the Giulia. Install took about 2 hours start to finish.

As far as noticeable difference from stock to this V2 intake... I noticed more power off the line and the car felt as though it had a bit more pull.

As far as sound goes... There is just a very faint swoosh sound if I let of the gas with the windows up and no music on. With the music on (volume 10) I can here the swoosh at all. Inside the cabin I do not notice any louder engine noise or growl, although from outside, it seemed to have a bit more noise.

All in all, I'm happy with how simple it is to install, how it looks, and the power I feel it gave the car. Now, I just need to find the time to install the Eurocompulsion tune. ?
