I believe it was the BMW E30 3 series booster you could use easily...

RZ, thats sad. I use a Giulietta booster in my car. Gives good clearance over the 24v motor. Is it just brake booster you need ?

Giulietta booster is the same as a 75 4 cylinder booster, should not be difficult to find over here. :)

The other stuff is probably custom-made... :(

Hi all..thanks for the chat Marc, I have been off the internet for 2 weeks due to building renovations at home and of course flew off to Zambia and Angola for a week.
Identifying stolen vehicles from South Africa there.
No Marc, nor Ferrari's but all of them Toyota Prado`s !!
French cars are shit and shit expensive to service and bloody awful and unreliable and expensive and friends don't let friends drive french cars and you wait years for parts.

Marc,
While waiting for (=trying to wrestle) my fully prepped transaxle from Andrew Garcia I had no choice but to stick a spare stock 3.0 transaxle in my 3.7 for shake-down, dyno, etc. Not surprisingly the clutch lasted only a limited time - not even enough to fully map the engine :oops: To get it back up and running I received a 4-puck race clutch from Andy (at Performatek). I will swap it shortly, but it should get it back up and running at a moderate cost (list of $250) - there are no guarantees, but this clutch holds more than his 9-button carbon fiber clutch which is for street cars and according to Andy holds about 300 rwhp (although I doubt he will warrantee it given your engine). This is with stock pressure plate. The 9-button may be something to consider if you are getting impatient :wink:

For my other race car :roll: I put together an oil cooler setup fairly affordably. Get a sandwich plate with thermostat, make two oil lines, get the cooler, mount it and you are done.

Pump for engine oil cooler :? SZ already has transaxle oil cooler. I assume Marc is looking for engine oil cooler for his 3.7 24v.

You're absolutely right.... :oops:
I somehow got it in my head that Marc needed a cooler for the diff. :? And i was wondering how that would work without a pump. :roll:

Maybe i should see an eyedoctor.... :oops: :(

So please ignore my previous post!!!! :wall:

Another? :shock: You lucky... Any pics? I always wanted an SZ - maybe now that the exchange rate is improving (from a US perspective)...

Besides the clutch the 3.7 is mechanically ready for the track, and it has been out for one shake-down day. However, I got quite a bit of cosmetics to finish (body-kit + paint, currently in various shades of primer) and sorting of wheels and tires... it goes on and on... Anyway, it is healthy with a project to keep you busy and out of trouble... At least that is what I tell my wife :roll: My 6-year old has already declared the 3.7 his race car, and I can have the 3.0 12v Milano race car :D

RZ,

I have a clutch plate. 4-puck, sprung. Will sell for $120 + shipping or we can discuss pricing. I can send you photos.

As for booster, I'm using the 164 with Alfetta pedals for the 24V.

Don't use the 4-puck for the street. It will drive you nuts :wall:
I have had a 4-puck in my 3.0 12v Milano race car for a couple of years, and it is fine for the track, but I would not want to live with it on the street. My $0.02 - sorry Zamani.
