Re: Project 2 : front mount SA GTV 3.0 - Sei diff

Just had a fun Trackday at Goodwood yesterday . It was as I would say a rare occasion that all the mad Alfa tuners and restorers got their GTV's , 75s, Juniors, 156 GTA and even a new Giulia QV out at the same time. Just sitting on the pit wall hearing them all come past was sound to be hold. I came...

Re: Project 2 : front mount SA GTV 3.0 - Sei diff

I got a really nice invite to join Auto Italia Magazine on their Motorsport day at Brooklands on Sunday . Weather was not great for standing around but much more fun for the track time we got. Must say I was really impressed with the Toyo semi slicks in the wet on the track and on the drive home. Al...

What I have been forced to do is drill throught the nut to make it bigger then when you want to tighten up crossmember you need two people as now you will put a loose nut with your finger tips into the recess p...

Re: Building the supercharger to the engine (75 3.0V6)

If it's just head removal job then always in car . No faf with prop , need hoist etc . So in summary far simpler to remove heads in car.

Re: Wheels

It’s an Ap Caliper with dust seals so it is larger than most aftermarket lightweight kits. It’s purpose was for road and track use designed by an AP agent here in the UK for the workshop. It is very pricy but this company that made it is ISO9001 cerified. Go onto Alex’s website and you will see more...

Re: CSC - long primaries

You can cut your manifold flange out like the 24v one if you have the time but just don't separate them. I would wrap the the mount only not the manifold and usually it's the right side mount. You must use the copper gaskets between primaries and down pipe . They only have three bolts to to tighten ...

Re: CSC - long primaries
