Re: Building the supercharger to the engine (75 3.0V6)

How much power do you think a 2.5 12v with cams and a Rotrex running 1 bar of boost can put out? 300 bhp possible? Thinking of building a 2.5 12v since they are pretty cheap and already have low comp 9.5:1 pistons.

Re: Steve's 3.0 24v supercharged GTV

Duk, Is that Richard M's stuff? I think just the extended top ball joint should already help correct the geometry for a lowered car. Probably not the best solution but it's pretty safe and lower cost approach instead of a drop spindle or a modified upright to fit an upside down ball joint . MD also ...

Re: Steve's 3.0 24v supercharged GTV

Looks great! Glad to hear the ride quality and handling is good. I bought my first AVO coilovers back in 2000 from Demon Tweeks. I think the posting is still in the old forum. Better than the teeth shattering Bilsteins (which someone gave me for free). For my next set I will use Annex suspension. Th...

Re: Need s some advice on an Alfetta GTV 3.2 V6 24v conversion

Does the ITB have a idle bypass screw or something? Otherwise you need to go with your method by leaving the throttle open a little. Do you have a vacuum balancer for adjusting vacuum at idle? That's what I saw my mechanic use when he tunes the 4-cam boxers 16vs since they all had ITBs.

Re: Building the supercharger to the engine (75 3.0V6)

If this build used a 164 head it should work. I could be wrong, but if it has an early 75 3.0 V6 heads then some minor machining may be needed.

Re: Building the supercharger to the engine (75 3.0V6)

Only issue with autronic is you need to run a home/cam sensor. I didn't check if this build had it. A few ways to do that for the 12V. You can use the distributor mount a bolt on the rear of the cam gear and the sensor on the head behind the cam gear.

You can check used Autronic SM4 units, less than 800 euro . In some cases with CDI as well. If a used one comes up I will let you know.

Re: Building the supercharger to the engine (75 3.0V6)

Have you thought about a new efi system? Like MAXXECU? I like the UI. Originally I thought "who needs a good UI as long as it can run the engine"...I was wrong.

Re: Building the supercharger to the engine (75 3.0V6)

MD, That suggestion is too simple. Usually complex problems like a malfunctioning hydraulic belt tensioner deserves a similarly complex explanation and solution, like "mate, your block was casted wrong causing your tensioner to malfunction, we need to do a new cast and full rebuild". We can't have t...

Re: New GTV6 project, 1981 Rosso

Hey Mike,

Is it still possible to get the SA bonnet and spoiler? I'm thinking of getting it for my dad's '84 GTV6 3.0.

Re: SZ/RZ rear suspension mounts

Took some photos of my bro's SZ rear suspension. You can see the dedion is not just a slightly reinforced dedion. The strut tower is also not exactly the same.

Re: SZ/RZ rear suspension mounts

What about the dedion? The SZ has reinforcements there it seems.

Looks really good. Have you thought about electric waterpump?
