Re: OILS ??

Hey Guys, I’m currently using LubroMoly 10w60 and I find that on a hot (90F) day at the track, my water temp goes to 210F. Oil temp is 220F with an oil cooler, was thinking Of switching back to 20w50 Valvoline VR1 synthetic. It has a viscosity oh 20.9mm2/s @100C, seems perfectly adequate. Do you all...

Re: GTV6 3.2 24V

So it looks like the FWD pickup literally has a corner case. I’d say reduce the number of flaps to just ones first and see if that helps. Otherwise look into adding a sump spacer or OKTech’s CNC’d lower sump like the one used in davide Cironi’s 3.3 project. I think that adds a bit more oil volume (n...

Re: Project 2 : front mount SA GTV 3.0 - Sei diff

MD sometimes has good ideas…. Sometimes……split the exhaust to both sides. I’m guessing the sound meter is on one side only. The tip has to shrink to 2”. Pieter’s mod also works. Either way I’m Pretty sure with these 2 mods you will pass 100db easily.

Exhaust looks great, did you fab it yourself? I’m going to start TIG after the summer.

Re: Alfa GTV 916 2,0 V6 TB bring back to life after 12 years

For these cars, 916, 156, I’m going to move towards more electrical accessories. For example electro-hydraulic PS pump, maybe electric AC compressor and move them into the boot. Although the GTV has a small boot to begin with. The battery is something I’d like to move into the boot too. All I want i...

What starter are you using? It sounds like a non alfa starter. Wondering if it’s a Brise starter

Re: GTV6 3.2 24V

Awesome Pieter! Which cams are these? I’m guessing Catcams, seeing you have cat cam gears. Saw your vids on YouTube, car sounds great!!!

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

Is this material is the same as the factory torsion bars? I’m assuming this should as stiff as other aftermarket 25.4mm bars?

Re: Supercharged 3.0 24V

I wonder what Brian Berger uses for liners in his Alfetta GTV, he’s been boosting it for a while now. I don’t think he closed the deck.

Re: Hello from relocation to UK with my two South African GTV6's

Wow. Really takes this car out of the the reach of regular working folks.

My dad has a nice red 3.0, but we're not going to sell that. Probably build a warehouse in his backyard and stuff all the cars in there.

Re: Supercharged 3.0 24V

Can’t find any good Alfetta 1.8 blocks here. Larry recommended me against the older 1.8 engines. The reason I’m going for a 2L is due to availability. Shipping is just stupid expensive these days. Trying to make do with what I have over here. If someone can get me a 75 1.8ie for €1k, I’m all ears. P...

Re: Supercharged 3.0 24V

1.8T is a no go. JK got my hopes up though.....shipping prices too high.....I've got a seller wanting to sell me a 1.8T for 4K. I'm guessing at the very least it should get a full resealing and rings. With shipping and customs it should be around $7K total, for an old used engine..... No thanks. In ...
