Re: Jim K. 3.2 engine

Hey Jim, due to a change in circumstance, I'll be following your build with interest- I just put a deposit down on a 147 GTA engine myself :D

Have you considered using something similar to the Clio Williams profile cams you discussed in your V6 book?

Re: My rebuild!

Well, here's an interesting story! I had planned to borrow a bit of extra cash to renovate my apartment, so my savings were tied up (couldn't use them) until banking stuff had been taken care of. For a multitude of reasons, it took about 6 weeks longer than anticipated. I had paid the owner of the S...

Re: My rebuild!

Hahahaha I'll see if can get her making power through to 7000... Under boost, it'll be a different world :)
Whether I build it with rods and pistons now, white it's out, remains to be seen :)
Watch this space :)

Re: My rebuild!

Hey Z- a different Hugh- the Alfpa Hugh is in Melbourne, in Victoria. Actually, things took an interesting turn the other day- La Strega Nera, Ben, sent me a link I couldn't refuse, I'm finalising the deal, but it turns out I have bought a Greg Gordon supercharged 3.0 12v hahahaha It's got a haltech...

Re: My rebuild!

I've been absent for a while! A quick update: Have a TS transaxle in with a quick fix 90 clutch... The extra length of the gearing makes a big difference when your power peak is so far up the rev range- I need a lot of road compared to the 4.3! The changeover didn't cost me any thing- the 4.3 box wa...

Re: Some more brake upgrades for the 116.

Mate! You've stepped it up a notch here! Amazing job!

May I ask how you cleaned the calipers?

I'm about to start on my 166 ones and had planned to use oven cleaner and isopropyl alcohol ...

Re: My rebuild!

Thanks Kevin- I wondered that... The GTA engine's torque Is much stronger than the 3.0 but it's still a bit of a revvy engine... I had wondered about which diff to use.
I thought the best would be a 3.7 or 3.9...?

Next would be to find one of those ratios.....!!

Re: My rebuild!

Yeppppp.... And I've had a few other things take precedence in the meantime! My plan of attack is to pull the box and replace with a stock TS box while I rebuild the 4.3 box. Ill do a performatek monkey shifter ISo rebuild at the same time. I will possibly offer the 4.3 box up for sale once it's bee...

Re: My rebuild!

Thanks Mats and Kevin- it has been discussed that there may be a feature... And while it was never my intention to build a car for "viewing purposes" I'd be happy to do it if it became available! Alfa club concourse this Sunday, and I will start the process of getting prepped for the E11V2 install a...

Re: My rebuild!

First off, the fuel smell is ridiculous! I've got monday and tuesday planned to take apart the fuel system again and replace all hoses and check the vapour canister, hoping to have a result. But driving her just gets better and better. The front end no longer seems to load up and compress to the poi...
