Re: V6 12v Individual Throttle Body

Holy hell, he’s back, he’s back! Rumors swirling around the inter webs (orginating from the cradle of democracy and ouzo) saying he gave up everything and moved down south (Antarctica). So glad to see you back MD. But definitely filters, without filters, it’s a receipt for disaster. Don’t forget a p...

Re: Alternative Alternator Abarth 500, 120Amp for extras

I switched to an E500 W124 Merc Alternator. With the Vauxhall PS pump, fan on, it still has 13.8v at idle. I modified the bracket as you did. What about the exciter circuit? Did you just connect it to the alt lamp warning and alt starts charging immediately after starting?

Re: Wiring Harness

Just for the EFI? Unlikely. If you need to rewire, I suggest a new EFI. Talk to Al Mitchell in South Carolina, I think he knows a thing or two about the Jetronic wiring for the GTV6. He has a conversion kit using Megasquirt for these cars.

Re: Project 2 : front mount SA GTV 3.0 - Sei diff

Kev,

If this doesn’t work, Reduce the size of the outlet. Since you have a total of 3 outlets (2 outlet on passenger’s, and 1 on driver’s) shrinking it to 2” at the tip shouldn’t have an impact on power but will have a good reduction in noise level.

Re: OILS ??

A seasoned pair of ears…..wait MD has very seasoned ears…he’s heard a lot of things in his life. Wonder what he has to say about this.

Anyway, I’m gonna get me one of them knock detection devices for my next dyno session…hopefully I will have adjustable cam gears by then….

Re: OILS ??

Getting too involved for someone like me. I think that’s why in OKTechs car he has 6 EGTs at the exhaust flange. That’s beyond club/hobby levels. I have to stick to AFR. But for knock I might be able to do something. What device do you recommend? Phormula? Or Maybe a seasoned ear? Found this video, ...

Re: OILS ??

For EGT, would an EGT per bank be necessary or is one EGT way downstream after the merge be adequate?

Re: OILS ??

Hey Guys, I’m currently using LubroMoly 10w60 and I find that on a hot (90F) day at the track, my water temp goes to 210F. Oil temp is 220F with an oil cooler, was thinking Of switching back to 20w50 Valvoline VR1 synthetic. It has a viscosity oh 20.9mm2/s @100C, seems perfectly adequate. Do you all...

Re: GTV6 3.2 24V

So it looks like the FWD pickup literally has a corner case. I’d say reduce the number of flaps to just ones first and see if that helps. Otherwise look into adding a sump spacer or OKTech’s CNC’d lower sump like the one used in davide Cironi’s 3.3 project. I think that adds a bit more oil volume (n...

Re: Project 2 : front mount SA GTV 3.0 - Sei diff

MD sometimes has good ideas…. Sometimes……split the exhaust to both sides. I’m guessing the sound meter is on one side only. The tip has to shrink to 2”. Pieter’s mod also works. Either way I’m Pretty sure with these 2 mods you will pass 100db easily.

Exhaust looks great, did you fab it yourself? I’m going to start TIG after the summer.
