Re: "Patches" MD's Final Racing Project

Hi Mike, the only time I have come across this is when there was an underlying problem/cause. In the case I’m aware of it was a cam bearing cap being installed 180deg out and after a short drive and up to temp it quickly seized the cam and caused a similar issue. Although luckily just at the right t...

Re: Coolant system pressure testing

You might want to actually test the system at a proper pressure. Generally 10-20% over the cap pressure. Mines 1.4bar or 21 psi. I check it at around 25-30psi. As at any point during running. It could reach at least the cap pressure.

Re: My rebuild!

Hi SydneyJules, I'm the guy with the 147 booster mounted If you need more info, but it's not a straight swap! But with what you have planned I'm sure you're up for it. Just a thought. The corvettes box is for all intent and purpose is just a t56 box. Although it's a 6 speed it really is just an over...

Re: Fuel Injector Spray Pattern

Hi 75evo. There are many factors that dictate the correct injector for an application as you we discovering, not just flow rate. I have a few questions which hopefully help you along your path. Are you remapping the factory computer or an aftermarket ecu How big are your cams, inlet manifold design,...

Re: Need s some advice on an Alfetta GTV 3.2 V6 24v conversion

Alfaaa1, so I remembered to check the dipstick for you. Basically the bottom of the factory stick you have is the low mark and the notch you see in the pic is the full mark. This will put your oil level 1mm or so below the factory levels. From the stop on the 24v dipstick its 530mm to the full mark ...

Re: Need s some advice on an Alfetta GTV 3.2 V6 24v conversion

Alfaaa1 I'll be tinkering with my 24v tomorrow. I'll measure the dipstick for you and take a photo. If you fill it to the level on your stick you'll be around 1.5 liters too much. Blow a lot of oil through your intake and smoke out the exhaust.

Re: Wheels

Hi Alfaaa1, yes you will def have to roll the wheel arch lips. With 15" wheels you may be able to squeeze them in but I doubt it, very precise offset and wheel alignment will help. I run 245/40/17 on 17x9" rims, standard arch with rolled inner lips. With an offset of approx 20-25mm can't remember ex...

Re: Engine coolant mostly gone

If you've lost that much coolant you would see a rise in the oil level on the dipstick, an extra liter or two in the sump will surely show up on the dipstick. Check the carpet isn't wet. With A leaky heater core or tap, the carpet will soak up quite a bit of liquid.

Re: Engine mounts

75Evo, it sounds like your mount is soft or poor quality. Lightly jack the engine so you can nip it up then settle the engine and do final tighten with open end spanner. Then order a new mount 😉 Jimk, for me it's piece of mind due to available space with the exhaust i built for the 24v. Quite a tigh...

Re: Engine mounts

Yeah RHD, I now use a 147 booster and master cyl, far shorter in length as master mostly sits inside booster. Free'd up some room for the intake manifold and cut a lot of weight in the setup.
Custom adapted pedal box. Now Bmw e36 clutch master sits inside firewall.

I'm located in Aus.

Re: Engine mounts

Thanks! It's coming along

The 164 had a similar arrangement and could be adapted to be very similar.

Re: Engine mounts

12 or 24V
For the 24V I retained the factory bracket and double skinned the inner guard. Used a mount off a 164. Extended with an adjustment in the middle
