2" flange

Guys,

Anyone know of a source for 2" (centerhole width) exhaust flange with a bolt-center to bolt center measurement of about 2.9" ? Can't find any here, and some shops are reluctant to cut only 2 flanges :?

In the meantime I'll still look around.

You can get it from www.oldebottles.com (click on the italian car's link). It also comes with the hoses.

JJ,

No dust seals? In that case I keep me wilwoods and 300mm cheapo Supra rotors then. My car isn't that fast anyway.


Barry,

Am very interested in your Giulietta 2.8's rear brakes! Any photos?

Looks good Barry!

Do Praggias have dust seals around the pistons?

What about outboard rears?

Maurizio, I bought 10.5:1 pistons from Paul Spruell, but it's for my 3.0. Looked really good. Performed well too. My static ignition advance is down to 28 degrees (from 33 with 9.5:1) and I still have more midrange punch. I'm still using 91 Octane (R+M/2) fuel! At the track (hopefully next month), I...

I think that is not adequate for 300bhp with good power curve. I haven't turbocharged anything before but from what I've read, to get the most power per lb of boost, you need to spend a lot of time building a good exhaust manifold (the details like, length, collector shape, etc are important), cams ...

Joe,

IMHO, Mobil 1 is just OK. I wouldn't say it is super good or anything. I will try the oil you recommend. But isn't like $30/qt?

What about putting in a TS16V from a 1/2 cut 156/155? Hey if people can put Skyline RB26DETT or Toyota's 2JZGTE in a 1968 Volvo 144, then a TS16V transplant should be no problem. Then you have 155 bhp to start with, stock. With cams, exhaust and chip, 175+ bhp should be no problem.

My opinion, don't lower the front too much such that the relative angles of the double a-arm cause you to lose camber in a turn. Don't make the rear too stiff, or else you will start sliding more. Although some actually like this, I don't.

I read on the alfaracing groups, there is another SCCA GTV6 racer who has some special cams, and 10:1 J&E pistons. He claims 200 whp on the dyno. He says the cams made a HUGE difference. The cam design came from Richard Jemison (also on Alfaracing group). This is his website: http://www.realemotorsp...

Instead of stock pistons, why not go for 0.5 or 1mm overbore? Say 10:1 or 10.5:1 Venolias from Greg? For headwork, try going to www.alfapartscatalog.com, call them and ask for Norman Racing's phone number. They also belong to the same group of companies. Norman racing is very reliable, they did my 3...

Sam,

With your mods have you thought of MS, GoTech or some type of programmable EFI? It would be even better if they hooked up a wide band A/F meter. Then you can see if you need more fuel.

Barry,

Where's the rear caliper setup? Doesn't your Giulietta have outboard rears?

Barry,

Come on, why would Mike be pissed? It's so difficult to get Alfa parts from a tuner, unlike Honduhs....can get parts from any silly magazines.

If you make the effort Mike should be more than happy for you to post your offerings. Besides you have nice legs :D
