Re: JK 24v 3liter ..at last!

I guess not BHPs are the same. Some are draft horses and some are shetland ponies. :roll:

Re: JK 24v 3liter ..at last!

JK, We all know how conservative you are, and dyno on a conservative dyno too. As a matter of fact, I saw a video of a Linder built M3 2.3, and he zoomed into the dyno screen, P-wheel 231+ hp, P-engine 293 bhp!!!! The gearbox must get pretty damn hot then. Just an anecdotal point. On the track the c...

Re: JK 24v 3liter ..at last!

Ok, maybe those splined shaft is more desireable for some due to "ease of fit". But now I think the fixed alfetta, early 75v6 style is a little safer. Btw, Jim, do you think properly aligning the shaft, engine and gearbox together would reduce the risk of the shaft blowing up? Also im strongly think...

Re: I experienced the ultimate today

I wonder if the day will come when people here will say "please please, I beg you, I'll trade my 4 piston Brembos and 330mm rotors, for your stock calipers and 269mm rotors!" :mrgreen:

Re: JK's v6 book

After reading that copy off google books, it seems the runner is the biggest restriction, even at 38mm ID, it's still a little small. I just remembered that I have Beninca's custom 42mm OD intake runners meant for the 24V RWD conversion. I think I can mate them to the 164 12V injector plates. Bore t...

Re: JK's v6 book

OK, every member on this forum is required to buy one. Pop quiz next week on Chapter 2. This will constitute 50% of your total grade.

MD will fail cuz he is 2 cylinders short and 2 sparks too many :)

Re: JK's v6 book

Giuli, Will both sides fit without major modification? The one in your photo looks like the rear 164 manifold. Might be a project for me :) Replace my SZ headers. The CSC looks like a real pain to fit., and I'm very wary about the 3-hole gasket....I don't think there even is a gasket there!!! PS Sch...

Re: No longer a ''budget" race GTV

I have a feeling the Hewland is going to cost more than a FEW converted and modified 24V transaxle Alfas.

Re: JK's v6 book

The cast manifolds angles upwards steeply, maybe they thought more beneficial as hot air wants to go up? Or the engineer working on it had too much veno and mixed up the Nord's angle with the V6's! Can't trust those eye-talians. :lol: Greg, Have you looked at Beninca's 24V header? Simple design. May...

JK,

Is your car the argento bianco 75 at time marker 4:37 in the video? Were you wearing a brown sweater?

Re: Ooops, I dropped a valve

I think my engine is having early signs of possible sodium valve failure. All exhaust lobes were pitted and even the base circle showed signs of wear, suggesting the lash went to 0. Impossible that I set it at 0. It must have tightened up. Inlet lobes were in excellent shape. This means the cams the...
