Okay so the opinion is to build something good nat asp. then stick a huge amount of boost through it (but keep the CR on the safe side)??

now I'm confused - low boost high CR or Huge boost low CR???

high torque cams from N/A road car too??

What you really should do is have a chat with Jim Steck, ha has done loads of Alfa Turbo engines and should be able to make you something that works very well. Both Nord and TS (and a combination). www.autocomponenti.com Thanks Mats. I hopefully have a turbo exhaust manifold coming from Jim....... ...

Barry Yeah, monosleve would be lovely, but...... to have one made here will cost around £1800, are there any left in s.a ?? i doubt it? Then the block machining wouldn't be cheap either. So I guess I'm staying with the thick 75 turbo single liners. I always thought the monosleve was a way for alfa t...

It is sort of off topic, but I have to chime in that that (Sport Sedan?) is stunning! I have a strong lust for that shape but I have not heard of many being built for performance. It looks brutal without the bumpers. great stuff Andrew, please dont hold back from posting more photos if you have a c...

Andrew, I'll add to whatever Mats scared you with (all the things you have to do) the interesting note that a 75 1,8T owner here has measured 467 flywheel hp. the engine has most of what Mats mentioned, plus a specially made stainless spaghetti exhaust manifold, no AFM, an SDS programmable ECU (I t...

Nope, but the pics I took of the one standing in the Museo Storico looks exactly like the outer parts of the one you're showing. Same as upper and upright. Oh Sh*t they were your pictures!!!!! Could you post them up here Mats, or send them to my mail address, I've been looking for them for ages, an...

Very Interesting parts Andrew, I take it the upright is hollow from behind? With any luck I should have some photos of Mid 90's Ford V8 supercar front suspension arms/upright, all beautifully fabbed steel.... I should dig out and scan some of the pics of got from an article on the 155 DTMs... speci...

Torsion bar splines in the lower arm? That's not right is it? :? Very cool stuff anyway. :D Hi Mats Hey thanks man. All the factory 75 evo/imsa used this bottom arm as far as I know.... For some reason the splined section was left on for whatever reason, possibly the same arm was used with torsion ...

Andrew, A couple of questions: 1) Are those upper A-arms from Nick Humphries? 2) This is a 3.7 24V? 3) The cam pulleys have 4 extra bolts and the cam gear are slotted? Is this for added clamping force instead of relying on the single tapered end of the camshaft? Impressive, especially the upright! ...
