  1. My GTV V6 TB

    This is my GTV. It's 2l V6 turbo P1 in Grigio Titanio colour. I've had it for 5 years and the previous owner had it stored in a garage as he lives in Paris, so drove it only a few times a year. This is how she looked like when I bought her. Then the next phase. Got a set of teledials and colour coded the skirts and bumpers. I painted the rear lights in red as well. Got a P2 grille a bit later. And then the next phase. Cup splitter, side skirts and got the side wings later. It got lowered by a few cm and Konis all round. Then I got a quad exhaust, rear spoiler, 20mm spacers and Mito QV side badges. I did a P2 conversion. It was a pain to do, but turned up pretty good. Not recommended :shock: Got the whole center console covered in leather with red stitching. I don't have a pic when it was complete, just the upper part. Got a set of Zender pedals, a new steering wheel also covered in leather with red stitching. The side panels, gear knob and all gaiters were done before. Also got P2 switches but they were installed later... This was the interior before the conversion. I have changed all lighting to red as well. And the engine bay looks like this. There are waiting to be installed. Powdercoated red calipers from a 166. I have found a lighter with a red ring and this is the last bit for a complete red interior lighting Will get some more pics when the weather gets better...

  4. Server problems

    This will hopefully fix all e-mail problems we have been having for months.
  5. Server problems

    There was a problem when moving servers last week and all should be normal now. I am sorry for any troubles caused.
  6. Hello

    Welcome aboard!
  7. My GTV V6 TB

    After a couple of months of waiting, my alcantara upper console is finished and the dash can finally be installed. What do you think? I think it looks perfect. Lower part will be matched soon (I hope).
  8. Site Garage Not working

    I will look into this. Thanks for reporting.
  9. GTV rear shelf and side panels

    I am looking for a rear shelf with rear side panels for a GTV. If someone has some extra shelves they don't need, PM me Thanks P.S. With speaker covers included
  10. Gtv-Spider SQUADRA 916 meeting 2017

    Very nice! Great to see such beautiful cars and most of all glad to see you back in a 916
  11. My GTV V6 TB

    Love the Blacklines but they have become quite popular now. Maybe it's time for something different
  12. My GTV V6 TB

    3.0 24V engines and generally less delicate. Camshafts and other problematic parts for the TB are starting to be impossible to find. Even water pumps. I know it's a nightmare to have it stripped again, but it would be worth it in the end. My car is not in original form anymore so I am not really bothered with sale value. Maybe I'm wrong, but it would be great to have a 3.0 again
  13. My GTV V6 TB

    Sold the jetfins, then bought them again for my daily driver and sold them again Don't like them on my GTV at all. I have 17" teles at the moment and probably will for some time. The car is still in storage. Will get it out this week and take a couple of pics
  14. My GTV V6 TB

    Thanks. The rest of the car will match the engine bay hopefully soon [emoji16]
  15. My GTV V6 TB

    Here is the engine with the new thicker Torque7 sleeves installed. Still needs some cleaning [emoji16]
  16. My GTV V6 TB

    Car has started and I have even managed to connect MES to the engine. I have a lambda error. Not bad [emoji16] Regarding the high idle problems I had. When dismantling the throttle body when it was painted, I haven’t positioned the TPS correctly so the throttle was slightly open when idle. Hence the 2200 rpm. All fixed now. The P2 conversion is almost complete. Rear heater is working, but I had to get an N82 box from later models to make it work as OEM. I really don’t want any hidden buttons for original features, so it all has to be 100% functional. Aircon will have to wait as I need to get P2 V6 TB piping. The dash and door cards were painted black and it looks like new now. Can’t wait to install it possibly this weekend. The centre console will be covered in anthracite alcantara. I am really thinking about installing a 3.0 24V engine. Has anyone done it? 166 3.0 engines and gearboxes can be bought for little money nowadays.
  17. GTV 3.0 V6 24V Paso

    I have seen your steering wheel probably before you did [emoji16] Great choice with the silver on the bottom, I knew it was yours the moment I saw the photos. Will have one in my GTV one day.
  18. GTV Window Control Box ecu

    Why am I seeing this now [emoji16] I was looking for one a week ago and bought one from a 156 instead.

  23. Our friends over at Torque7 wanted to offer you the opportunity to take part in a group-buy of their specially designed intake runner sleeves for our Busso V6 engines! Typically these sleeve sets will retail at 90€, however right now, only for the upcoming two weeks (till 7th of April), Torque7 are willing to offer members a rolling-discount dependent on the number of users looking to purchase a set. If we have enough interest from you guys these kits could work out very cheap in comparison to their RRP. The group buy will work in the following way: Torque7 have offered a base discount of 5% for this group buy The group buy is limited to a maximum of 30 units For every user that subscribes to the deal an additional 1% discount will be made available to everyone. So, if we have, let's say, 15 orders, we will have a 20% discount. Here some information on the sleeves. A set of silicone replacement sleeves (6 pcs.) for most Alfa Romeo "Busso" V6 engines. Can be used with the original hose clamps therefore creates a very sleek original OEM look. Will outlast the original sleeves and will not tear after many repeated removals. Sleeve 60513867 is suitable for 44mm intake runners found in: Alfa Romeo: 147 GTA 3.2L; 156 GTA 3.2L; 166 3.2L/3.0L; GT 3.2L; GTV 3.2L/3.0L; Spider 3.2L/3.0L; 164 3.0L 24V Q4/3.0L 24V QV (not suitable for 3.0L 24V LS (US spec); Lancia: Thesis 3.0L 24V; Sleeve 60513179 is suitable for 39 mm intake runners found in: Alfa Romeo: 166 2.0L turbo; GTV 2.0L turbo; Spider 2.0L turbo; Spider 3.0L 12V 164 3.0L 24V/3.0L 12V/2.0L turbo (not suitable for 3.0L 24V LS (US spec); 155 2.5L; Lancia: Thema 3.0L 12V; Fiat: Croma 2.5L. The sleeves will be available in black (for an OEM look) with or without branding. You can use your original clips as well. There is an extra thick option for your custom Turbocharged or Supercharged project (not compatible with OE hose clamps). Order this extra thick option to prevent the sleeves from popping due to huge boost pressures! Price of this thicker option is 18€ more (108€) and the same discount rules apply. Regarding ordering. Deposits will have to be made to Torque7 as these are made per order. There is no stock. Amounts as high as 10€ would be enough just to ensure that we really have the exact amount of orders as on the list. Deposits will be made by Paypal and you will receive an invoice from Touque7. When the group buy ends you will be charged the remaining amount (which will depend on the number of orders).
