Re: V6 12v Individual Throttle Body

TBs as pictured suggest top end power coming from high revs. Irrespective of the lengths, induction without filtration for a road car is a recepe for rapid wear and under bonnet fires.

Re: "Patches" MD's Final Racing Project

Wow !! More than a year and half gone without any progress on the 75. However, there is a reason for this. I have been busy quietly restoring an Alfetta GTV 2.0 that has been sitting in my workshop for 5 years waiting to be the back up car if I have a major track incident with Orange Cab. Thankfully...

Re: Wanted. Alfetta GTV Rear spring lower rubber base

If you haven't found an original part by now then this might help. Just source a thick walled ordinary garden hose. Cut a length equal to the circumference of your spring. Make a split cut along the length of the off-cut piece. Wrap it around the spring base. If it requires it, use some light cable ...

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

Kevin, Stop. STOP. SSSSSTTTOOOPPP !!! You got the concept all arse about face. The idea is:- Take the left bank left with a larger muffler only. Take the right bank with a larger muffler only. DO NOT COMBINE ANYTHING. The idea being that you distribute the noise to two locations and not concentrate ...

Re: GTV6 3.2 24V

Peter Think about it. Oil pressure during the braking cycle is almost irrelevant because the engine is on a very small load compared to maximum power under acceleration. A good oil will see this period of engine running well enough not to be of concern. If the pressure is holding up during cornering...

Kevin I think you have a tyre noise problem. Remember you only need two to go round corners.

Re: GTV6 3.2 24V

Hey Polski. Good to see you out there giving motorsport a crack. As long as you are quicker than Kevin that's all that counts. Had a very quick think about your request. If the pick up point is your only concern, I think it plausible to just relocate it using your existing pump. My Picasso drawing s...

Re: GTV6 3.2 24V

HI Peter, A very nice practical and minimalist outcome for all you dedication. Nice job mate. ...one thing I don't understand is why you left that wrap around condom on your steering wheel ?? Impact protection of some kind perhaps? You know how it goes, I can't just let you get off Scott free :D :D ...

Re: alternator charge cable

Very nice progress. The B+ output from the alternator can go almost anywhere where there is a B+ connection. However due to the fairly high current that may be produced by the alternator, it is generally connected where there is high current carrying wiring already ie. the starter B+ connection. Par...

Re: Supercharged 3.0 24V

The engine I am working on is a 1.8 Alfetta and it was a pain to source here as well. At one time you couldn't give them away. Difference is that I am going to supercharge it just to piss JK off. No direct evidence but I think the case against the vulnerability of the 2 litre liners using high boost...
