Re: driveshaft conversion

Cv joints are commonly used nowadays. Most beemers have at least one in the propshaft. Audi quattro uses at least two and also on the rs4 and rs6 model. Should not really be a problem i think.

Re: piston taper

Can't help you with the taper but usually in turbocharged engines they use more clearance all together to allow for more expansion . Bigger piston ring gaps are a good idea for instance.

Re: 24v Intake Runner Base Plates

If you look at the chrome runners you'll see a small taper just before the flange (this applies to the smaller diameter runner,the bigger runner has no taper).I believe the hole in the flange i...

Re: Fernando's Alfa GTV6 3 Litre 24V Twin Turbo

That's a nice ride. You wouldn't guess there are two turbo's lurking in the engine bay.

Is the gearbox upfront in your car?

Re: Best standalone ecu system

Go ask the local tuner that has to map it for you what he prefers... Most ecu brands are getting close in quality. It's easier to buy a system with local support. Will save you from having to pay 'learning money'

Re: 24V => 12V crankshaft interchangability

164 style 24v crank will work. Later style is different due to oil pump drive.

Re: Hello to everyone

Welcome here.. You say it's a 1976 car? I think there is something wrong... The older types would have a totally different nosepiece,yours has a late model nose. Also you have the plastic 'triangles' behind the rear windows while they should be metal.and those are things that are not easily intercha...

The 'clamping bar' that goes over the battery can also cause some nice sparks if it gets loose.. :wink:
