There are three types of McChip-DKR tuning packages made for the Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio. Out of the three, the Stage 3 is the most attention-seizing one. It pushes the Alfa sports saloon up to the level of a supercar.
It gives the Giulia Quadrifoglio tuned turbochargers, remapped software and new components to boost its performance. As a result, an extra 168 hp and 184 lb-ft of torque can be produced by the car’s 2.9-liter, twin-turbo V6 engine. So the total output is now 670 hp and 627 lb-ft of torque.
That surpasses the Ferrari 488 GTB by 10 hp and 66 lb-ft of torque. The cost to get the powerful package is €15,589 or around $17,491, which is as much as a new Toyota Yaris or Ford Fiesta in the U.S. When installing the kit, the Germany tuner will also unlock the car’s speed limit, releasing the extra 4 mph previously sealed by the limiter. After this, the Giulia Quadrifoglio will be able to hit a top speed of 195 mph.
If you want a cheaper kit, you can buy the Stage 2, which will give your Alfa 601 hp and 590 lb-ft of torque for €7,229 ($8,111). Or even more affordable, you can choose Stage 1 that increases the output to 572 hp and 553 lb-ft of torque for just €1,999 ($2,243). Both kits will unlock the speed limit and give the upgraded Giulia Quadrifoglio a dyno test and individual ECU remap.
The stock Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio is priced from $73,995, excluding destination charge. That’s the price for U.S. customers. Meanwhile, in Germany, the car starts at €79,700 or around $89,423.
