What about getting the pulley with the highest boost, and then put in an electronic boost controller? THat way you can boost up on short runs.

Mats,

At high rpm should the advance be high as well? I curve it down a little on my car.

26 degrees at WOT 4000rpm
23 degrees at WOT 7000rpm

Not sure if this is good or bad myself.

Jim,

How is the contour like? Is there a linear relationship between RPM and advance? I'm, assuming that it does since the advance is controlled by some sort of a spring.

Hi Greg,

That's the PCV valve from a Toyota.


Joey,

Mate, I chose this route so the wankers in blue won't give me problems if they ask me to open the bonnet. Also it should make passing the emission test easier as it looks stock.

Modified airbox

Modified airbox with 4" intake pipe.

Final step is to weld everything up completely, grind the edges, and spray paint it. Should be completed in a few days.

Murray, Don't forget to clean the liners and pistons thoroughly. Some people spray cleaning solvents, wipe it a few times and call it good. My mechanic and I cleaned each liner several times. First with warm soapy water. Then take a clean kithecn towel and spray some oil on it, then wipe the liner. ...

Seb,

Is it really a 3.0??? Or is it like a 3.3L or something? The idle is not smooth...so I am thinking it is a notch above my cams. Like something with 11mm lift and very long duration. and overlap.
Does it use Motec?

237 bhp at the wheels maybe? That would be aboutt 280 flywheel bhp.

I doubt you can hit 265 km/h with 237 flywheel bhp.

Seb,

What's the spec? Compression? Cams? Headers (what type)? Is it still a 3.0?

Thanks,

It isn't the Alfa 90 3.0 Qv with the 6 throttles right? The wheels seem to be the same as that 90. Damn that thing moves, and sounds great! Wait till I super charge my 3.0. I wish I had put in Carillo rods in my engine.....

Jim,

Is it some sort of PWM signal to the lights? That could be interesting...
