Hi Djseto.What's the consensus for those of you who have the Go Pedal (original or bluetooth)? Is it a must have? Does it change the daily drivability of the (non QV) Alfa?
I'm about to pull the trigger on this mod as well. Seems like a no brainer... But it also seems there are about 5 other options available that do the same thing.What's the consensus for those of you who have the Go Pedal (original or bluetooth)? Is it a must have?

Man, we are on the same page! Your feelings about the shortcomings of Giulia with overtaking mirror my own, although I decided the primary problem was simply lack of power, and so I prioritized the MaxPower ECM, although I did both at about the same time.for the "what it's worth" section----
I just installed my Madness Gopedal day before yesterday (Non BT version) and I wish I had ordered it months ago. It's been a blast. As others like @chaadster have said it eliminates the turbo lag and in Sport + the car just leaps out of the hole. I'm one coming from an NA V8 with 435 hp and I never had to anticipate a pass. I just dropped a gear or two and hit the gas.
Since owning the Alfa I had to learn to get prepared for a pass and I was not as confident "popping out" for a quick pass. the Gopedal has solved that issue once and for all. LOVE IT!
Once I get the Maxpowr Pro installed this week the car should feel totally transformed.
Just to be clear because I don't know the correct terminology, there are two boxes for non-BT model (one for selecting modes and one for processing) and just one box, the processor, for the BT model.
Hi 1alfa.I'm about to pull the trigger on this mod as well. Seems like a no brainer... But it also seems there are about 5 other options available that do the same thing.
I've been looking at the Novitec GP1. It's cheaper than the Madness version and a simple push-button box while the Madness is Smartphone dependent with options I'll most likely quit playing with after the first week or 2... From what I hear, the Madness keeps your last Smartphone selected setting once you're away from your car.
This might not be an issue for single drivers, but if you share your Giulia with a less enthusiastic second driver about performance tweaking it might be? That said, with the 3 setting box configuration on the Novitec (like most of these devices available). It's simple White/Green/Red, push-button (look see what's on) operation for anyone driving.
Got mine, ready to install, thanks for the tips.Just to be clear because I don't know the correct terminology, there are two boxes for non-BT model (one for selecting modes and one for processing) and just one box, the processor, for the BT model.
So, I used velcro to stick the processor box on the inside of the lower dash trim panel to the left of the steering wheel, like about under where the headlight switch is, but a touch more inboard.
On the BT version, what would the user mode configurations be for a similar setup to yours?Hi 1alfa.
You may want to consider the classic version of the GOPedal. 3 buttons, 21 total settings of adjustment. I run one in my own car. Pretty sure it's priced out at $249 as well, $50 under the BT version.
We offer a 3-year warranty on all the GOPedals, both classic and the BT version - so on the off chance that there's a hardware freakout, just give us a call and we'll swap it out for you, or swing on by the office if you're in the area. No international shipping to consider. We usually keep them stocked at both CA and TX offices, so it should get to you fairly quickly. If you decide that it's not to your liking, we've got a 30-day money back policy.
Worth a shot, just sayin'.
As for the settings, I personally have three that I flip between, though it took a few weeks of playing around to find my own sweet spots.
double dynamic mode (sport+, +1)
default everyday mode (sport+, -3)
and date night (eco, +1)
Hope that sheds some insight. Drop a line direct to me via email, we'd love to set you up.
That's actually a great question. Don't hold me to these exact figures, but I think these would be good starting approximations:On the BT version, what would the user mode configurations be for a similar setup to yours?
That's actually a great question. Don't hold me to these exact figures, but I think these would be good starting approximations:
@Boo2boy my everyday map is like a hybrid of @MADNESS eMac's Double Dynamic and default. I wanted the aggressive tip-in, but then to have some pedal range-of-movement so I could actually rest my foot on the pedal rather than needing to manipulate it so finely that I used only my toes, as is the case with the stock Sport profile, which I found too touchy for my typical urban drives.
Absolutely. You can really dial-in the throttle response you want, pretty much. With my map, I think the quick climb from 50 (% throttle, I guess) to 70 really makes the trans quick to kick-down with just a short stab of the pedal, so I can initiate a downshift very easily.Thanks I’m gonna try that one too. Cool thing about BT version is the ability to create multiple pre-set configurations. That and the fact that their app uses the full iPhone screen, haha!
