116 GTV BRERA Race car !!!

Post by kevin » Thu Apr 14, 2011 9:40 am

So when you want a chain driven Alfa motor(heads) and you increase to 3.8 and you bored put it into the timeless GTV body. The barrel throttles have proved highly succesfull here on SA 's fastest 2.0L Giulietta. Note the small idle screws as it always the hard part to get idle right on individuals. :idea:
All this work is at Glenwood motors new workshop at Zwartkops race track .

They're upside down on that second picture... :wink: So i'm guessing there is a set of three for the other side as well. 8)

Front mount gearbox? Camaro/Commodore unit should just bolt up?
Thermostat on the rwd GM iterations of that motor is in a most impractical place - anything been done to make that easier?

This 3.8 brera ''GTV'' is nearly there. its impressive to see a major turn around over the last year into the cosmetics and ''bling'' on the cars leaving this workshop. This motor is a real screamer - watch out Jules , this one screams louder than yours. pic of Div next to his creation.

Mine will scream for a little longer... Then she will just boost her way to wheelspin- got some time off, so she'll be worked on again soon... Saving $$ for the repair and rebuild.

Kev, that donk looks awesome

How will the chain hold up? I've heard quite a few stories of chains needing replacement because they slack rather quick on road cars.

Ten million years if it has the miles/year of any average privately funded race car. :)

Is this the V6 that is based on the Holden engine that was a product of the GM-Fiat Powertrain alliance?
