Hahaha I would certainly love to Brian! I dont mind beer at all :wink: I'm planning a little trip stateside via Europe (or vice versa) for '06, so I can catch the last round of airshows to be flown by the F-14, so I guess Ohio is now also on my list! Besides, you're not too far from Chicago there, a...

Beninca's Sport sedan was nucking futs, not what I can afford to have built!

The Targa GTV was a monoblocked 8v TS with slide throttle injection.

It was nucking futs too!

I want somewhere in between what I have and nucking futs!

Hey Brian, they are my fave class of racer we have- much more interesting than the Ford-Holden(GM) V8 Supercar series, which is being modelled on NASCAR in terms of publicity stunts and crap like that- two make silhouette series with set front suspension, diff ratios, and tyres. For a real race car,...

Haha well noted Brian! I couldnt race a 3.7TT in any class out here! Well I could race formula Alfa, but as no body out here has serious HP on the circuit, it would be a little boring. In fact the most powerful Alfa powered Alfa doing the country right now would have to be Paul K's 1.8T. No offence ...

Yeah that is my cheapest option too. Can keep my cams that way. Apparently 3.0 pistons and liners on 2.5 rods work out with 10.5:1 compression. I'd get bigger valves made while the head was off. It's a fair bit of money for a nigh on 290hp motor.... Who am I kidding- I wont be even thinking about en...

Hahaha Joey come to Auto Italia this year and I wont drink the night beforehand, and actually take you for a spin! I was a mess this year!!! Tipo, I have an "almost as far as you can go with it" 2.5, and when you get to here, it's actually a little depressing! My car goes very well for a 2.5, but my...

Ben Bishop and I had a good couple of beers with Kevin yesterday.

Jeez you South Afircans have Alfas sorted over there.

The tales of TT monsters, and 3.8 24vs... it's insane!

I want to hear more details on the above race car.

I WANT ONE!!!!

I've been for a ride in a 1.8T that churned out just on 300hp @ wheels, and the only thing stopping it from getting up and seriously moving was Paul K being nice to it between 1st and 2nd, and the wheels spinning in third... the torque is amazing. It has a very long set of manifolds, which Paul scor...

All I am gonna say is that us Alfa folk are among ourselves in this world- So no bickering! Whether we like it or not, we are all idiosyncratic guys and gals that are pursuing upkeep, restoration, and modern parity of our gorgeous cars... We will achieve nothing on our own. JJ has made it known that...

Or if you want a set of top quality Liverpool exhaust headers (12v), I can find a price for you.... mine look like the CSC headers, except from memory go three-2-1, with the 2 running flat side by side underneath.

Yeah I wanna hear about how these motors are going- I met up with Kevin and his tales about Big Bore 24v motors and Twin and Single Hairdryered 12 and 24vs stirred me up something fierce! Made me feel completely inadequate after revving my little 2.5 all the way to 8 in an attempt to build some spee...
