Nice work Baz. But it is strange to read an engine builder who endorces running an engine extra rich for extended lengths of time. Aren't you concerned with washing the oil off the bores causing increased wear? Also, the extra carbon deposits in the combustion chamber causing hot spots and pre-ignit...

How about enclosing the standard intercooler in aluminium and pumping water though the fins, turning it into a water to air intercooler? It's been done befor with other air to air intercoolers and it keeps the plumbing nice and short. Water to air intercoolers can work real well (tho I don't persona...

As much as I love seeing quality custom stuff that is actually done by the owner........... I'm still thinking NO!

Looks like a waste of what appeared to be a decent Alfa :cry:

To each their own I suppose.

:wall: Nice work tho.

Do you notice much of an improvement with the your drop spindle mods? Would you be interested in modifying a set for anyone else (road use)?
Love the custom stuff. Very innovative 8) .

Hi Greg,
when is your book coming out? You could perhaps sell the plans for your kit seperately as well.

Curious about the sensoring of photo's :? . You were more than generous with the photo's for Super Red Verde Greg, have you improved your design of the supercharger mount/discharge plumbing?

About air to air intercoolers. Is it wise to put electrical fans on them to cool the air while standing still or driving at low (city) speeds. Typically not required unless the intercooler is getting heat soaked from other hot components. WRX's suffer from this with their top mount intercoolers. I ...

75 Motronic Wiring Diagram

Hi all, can anybody help me find a wiring diagram for a Motronic (1990) Australian delivered 75?
Do the early 164 use the same Motronic computer as the 75?
Would an early 164 wiring diagram be worth trying to get?
Cheers. :wall:

Strange behaviour

I have just aquired a '90 75 3ltr in very good condition, but she has a very strange habbit of the interior electrics chucking a hissy fit once I switch the high beems on. Stuff like all the warning lights come on, then go...
