Re: TS ignition map

Nothing for a twin spark I'm afraid, only for a 24v 3.0 or 12v 3.0 - both are just single plug engines

Just spotted this... are you still looking for something? if so what spec are you running (fuel only, fuel table size, spark too?, stock motor?)

Re: Supercharger help please

Hi Rob, The merc 230 sounds like a decent option, casing looks compact which is useful to maximise use of limited under bonnet space. This sort of thing rebuilt :- https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Eaton-M62-Supercharger/253407131016?hash=item3b003df588:g:qZMAAOSwCtJaddox I quite enjoyed making my kit, see...

Re: Supercharger help please

Hi Rob, Not sure what country you're in but 62 series supercharger units are relatively common from various car manufacturers. The internals of the same generation blowers are identical in all, but the external castings and packaging differ hugely from manufacturer to manufacturer. Some are very bul...

Re: transaxle upgrade's

gtv-racer... very interested in a price for this too - add me to your list of potential customers. Certainly interested in giving my transaxle a better chance of holding together!

Re: Headlight lamps

Hi Kevin, how's things. I presume you are already running all 4 lights through relays and are looking to upgrade the dipped units? The "mains" can easily take 100w bulbs, but I never found a truly satisfactory solution for the "dips" using the factory lights. The design flaw seems to be that the bul...

Re: Steve's 3.0 24v supercharged GTV

Hi Kev,
I don't have anything much planned Alfa wise this year as I've quite a lot going on with family weddings, holidays and such.

If Alex holds another open day I'll be there though :-) Any suggestions welcome.

Re: Steve's 3.0 24v supercharged GTV

Had a couple of silly teething problems to resolve with the new set up, most awkward to find was an irritating high pitched whistle at closed throttle at all speeds. This turned out just to be a poor seal between the supercharger inlet and the mounting bracket allowing a sliver of air to be sucked i...

Re: Steve's 3.0 24v supercharged GTV

Another unusual problem encountered involved the air-filter trying to collapse in on itself when the throttle was wide open! The air demands of the engine exceeded the old filters' max flow, so a larger dual cone K&N item with 90mm (3.5") alloy pipework has been installed, as before the filter is ou...

Re: Steve's 3.0 24v supercharged GTV

Whilst everything was dismantled I took the opportunity to fix the main coolant radiator that was weeping slightly from a seam. To be fair it was the original 1983 radiator that had been rebuilt twice before, so I'd gotten good use from it. Rather than have it fixed again it's replaced with fully we...
