Re: "Patches" MD's Final Racing Project

Hey MD, I see you still got bugs in your undies. Thought you might have been calling ET on your radios and forgotten about your poor 75. That GTV looks pretty good in that combination of colour coding . Hopefully it will find a good home and we can see progress on the 75. Question : have you seen a ...

I went for Abarth one as lighter . Yes the green wire to original circuit as it’s an exciter for the resistance of the bulb to trigger .

Re: Alfa GTV 916 2,0 V6 TB bring back to life after 12 years

Hi Wolfgang
Hows the project coming along ? I believe you have made some headlight upgrades. I do enjoy this thread as so much info to be gained from your engine mods which is this engine has been used a few times in conversions into the 116 GTV6.

Alternative Alternator Abarth 500, 120Amp for extras

As heading suggests this high powered alternator was necessary as I have now really exceeded the limits of the standard 55Amp . Due to a severe arm injury (in workshop) I have had to fit power steering on the track car which has 225s upfront and heavy castor so steering is a bitch if you got one and...

Im sure once they have read the books and posted on FB or where ever they will be a ano...

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

Hi Pieter , I would have thought deflecting noise into tarmac could amplify it. Not sure why I thought that as it could result in destructive interference .. .. noise reduction . I understood the exhaust on the 155 DTM were turned up to reduce noise and keep the power they achieved . I have bought m...

Re: Hello from relocation to UK with my two South African GTV6's

Finally some good weather combined with Classic Alfa Trackday at Goodwood. Unfortunately my GTV6 trackcar failed the DB test even with three silencers on the side exit pipe . I think the big bore “bass” is just to deep ! I was 102 db already at 4000rpm on a 98db day
