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

That’s a serious amount of work ! Out of interest what is the size of the valves on that head .. not that it makes massive difference with forced induction. We’re all exhaust tappets worn all juts that one ?

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

Thanks Wolfgang ! Crazy to see how small the counterweight is on. 2.0 V6 pulley . If you look at the same pulley type on the 3.2 the counter weight takes up nearly half the pulley.
What LS is in that gearbox ?

Re: GTV6 3.2 24V

That’s extremely neat ! Like the extension on the oil filler neck . The cold air intake with the drive by wire throttle body also very neat ! As Jim said keep those revs under 7800 with those valve springs will be fine. Question is do you really need to go above 7500rpm ? By the way MD also has his ...

Thermostat Housing (internals)

The reason for this post is I have bought some new thermostat housings and I have had no issues, however I know of three engine rebuilds that have suffered blown head gaskets and after a lot of head scratching and quite a few thousand pounds later it was found the thermostat was jamming closed. Quit...

Re: South Africa - 1982 GTV6 2.5 Restoration (50/100)

Coming on nicely. The usual rust spots on the GTV6 except the one under the left rear tail light is common to SA cars as the factory put seam sealer between the rear valence and boot floor behind the battery well. When the taillights leaked water from perished seals it just got trapped and found its...

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

That is a ridiculous price, sometimes you think it’s a battle of egos at an auction and all sense goes out the window. It was a very good car make no mistake. In the greater scheme of things it is definitely one of Alfas rarest Homologation cars in terms of numbers produced. Time will tell to see wh...

Re: Windows 10

You can also upgrade to the Powermods ECU and get the guys at “old Gotech “ to copy the map across to the new type ECU. I recently did this . Nice upgrade and you’re on windows 10 with a lot more functions and screens.

Re: front wheel rim fouls the sway bar lower mounting stud

Hi, yes you definitely get this problem with certain wheels I have tried. I have stuck with 25 offset on the 7.5j wheels. When i widened to 8j I added to the dish but then had to cut the body work. It’s a race car so it was neatly done and had no plastic sills. I can’t see anyone go wider than 7,5 J...

Re: South Africa - 1982 GTV6 2.5 Restoration (50/100)

This definitely has to be the most extreme restoration done by the owner on this forum. How long did it take you to take all the paint off ? Those rust spots are typical of SA cars, the usual high dust content from all the mines, farming etc finds itself into the cavities in the sills and blocks the...

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

I’m just glad you mentioned “young “ , I feel much better now. It’s way to boring to make poems about Ozzies …. every stanza ends in an “o”. Probably goes something like this … There was an old fart from Banyo, who drove an Alfa Romeo…… I will stop there as not to embarrass myself in front of your m...
