    Nice one. Take care with those Brembo's: afaik they will not fit behind those very nice wheels you have!
  2. Big bore 12V exhaust headers

    24V headers adapted for use on Busso 12V engine. For 916 Spider 12V and possibly also for 155 V6. Details will follow.

    That model of the Busso? From 164? The alternator is up front and gearbox looks quite different..
  4. GTV TB: GT2560R & FMIC upgrade

    No dampers, just Helmholtz resonators..

    Well, the new oil cooler arrangement worked out nicely. Also the OEM thermostat in the oilfilter mount works like it should: oil lines stay perfectly cold till oil temp reaches 85/90°C. Next job is to mount a thermoswitch controlled fan behind the oilcooler to get better oil temp control at low roadspeeds and also enhance totall cooling capacity.

    A guy in the Netherlands also fitted a supercharger but kept the airconditioning. He used the Eaton M45 (a bit smallish) and made 190hp.

    I have fitted a 15"/38cm Fan from Spal too. It covers the whole height of the radiator. (I had to dump the OEM twin 10"/25cm fans in favor of one big fan on the left because I use 166TB headers which needs more space.)

    Do you use front subframe from 166 maybe?

    "digital control" is cheaper to produce these days, no knobs, no swiches, just touch. I don't like it either, there is no feel in it. And on a bumpy road it is almost impossible to control precisely.

    Hi Steve, In general it is for sure the reliability will be less on the TS turbo compared with a V6. MPG on TS will be better, if they did a good job on the mapping. Carlo
  11. Ohw, I see... 2018...

    Funny those mud guard / flap thingies..

    New oilcooler with custom air duct almost finished. Fasteners still have to sorted out and some paint applied. I found out that the OEM connections from pipe and fittings to the hose were very restrictive: just 8,2mm diameter while the pipes themselves are about 10mm ID With the new custom hoses all will be ID=10mm, perfect! Also the oilcooler has more area, 50 instead of 40mm thick and much more rows, so a much more effective cooler.

    Meanwhile a bigger Helmholtz resonator is fabricated to try to reduce exhaust drone further @ low revs.
  15. Nice colour! Well... regarding the radio: it depends on how it has been wired.. Normally the radio gets permanent power and switched power via the ignition key. This makes the radio switch off when the key is taken away. Maybe the former owner did not like that.... It is a pitty our Alfa's just have "ignition" and "start" on the starter key switch. They don't have an "accessory" position.
