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 ...

Why not post this request on the Alfa Forum in OZ ? Can't hurt.

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...

Re: Supercharged 3.0 24V

Now that Zamani's topic has been shot to pieces.... W.W. Very nice Chrysler Coupe. But hey DON'T ENCOURAGE HIM !! You just know he's gonna come back a v16 diesel next. Can't help himself. :D I do think his red pants are going go down well at "The Blue Oyster Club". :wall: So doing a detour...

Re: Supercharged 3.0 24V

Gidday Greaser. Enough keystrokes in your last post to get you a spot with Clarkson, Hammond and May as the feature driver with your Supercar. Small suggestion. Your car is too small for the engine. It needs bigger wheels, yes, I definitely think bigger wheels will do the business. A periscope is a ...

Re: Supercharged 3.0 24V

Geez Zamani.I told you not to piss him off. Now he's gone on bender. First he wants to flog you a lame 1.8L turbo then he says they are crap and you need to move onto a V8 mustang. I think him being on Facebook has done a LOT of damage. Muscle cars live on other forums. Disorientation will do that t...

Re: Supercharged 3.0 24V

Hey Zamani, The only reason I included this helpful advice about the hair drier is to piss the Greekster off. He and I have been at logger heads about boosting (privately) for years. By all means do what ever works in terms of not only the performance you need but also what works financially. Lookin...

Re: Engine smoking

Hi John, Going to avoid my usual smart arse contribution and offer something practical. Here is what you should do to help with the diagnosis. 1 Warm the car up and check the engine oil is not overfilled 2 Check the correct oil type is in the engine 3 Take it for a run into some hilly terrain. 4 Dri...

Re: New book?

Interesting story Jim. I am sure we all got one. Mine is a little different and I didn't even get to enjoy the music. I got let down by the Alfa bean counters who decided that installing a key way to lock up the bottom sprocket that drives the camshafts chain was too expensive.(8 valve twin spark en...
