I am Sebastiano, 38 years old and I am working in the Bosch MED development facility on Györ, Hungary.
I am read this forum a long time now and I am sometimes very surprised how much nonsense here is writing.
I am a worker in the Bosch development since 2001 and I am responsible for the Maserati, Fiat, Alfa Romeo and Volvo development. I do not knew if the word is right but I am the plant leader.. Sorry for my English.
The translation from whp to the corrected EWG on the Alfa Romeo 4C is 11,4%. This means that the claimed numbers from this entity here must had 356,48 PS EWG on measures according to the European norm. The power train was developed with 245PS EWG. The delivery is 245PS EWG on the world wide.
As responsible person I ask you to please explain us - the developing plant how you came up with a number that is more higher than the turbo compressor can deliver, the fuel pump and injectors can deliver and how you resolved the 1000 degrees Celsius problem with the collector after 315PS EWG that is the maximum if you run the car on a Euro 5 catalisateur?!!
The power train can not make 320 horse power. The pump can not make it. The euro 6 catalisateur can definitely not make it. Can you please post some pictures from the dyno and fan (where the wind / air comes out) from your development.
I don't want to attack. We are developing this 4C since 2009 and the euro 5 since 2005. I want to just ask.
