  1. Alfa GTV Competizione

    Let us know does it work and can it be used for daily driving or just on a track?
  2. Alfa GTV Competizione

    The most ambitious project on any GTV so far!
  3. Alfa GTV Competizione

    It's hard to match your level of dedication!
  4. Alfa GTV Competizione

    I love those carbon covers!

    The timing belt service was a perfect opportunity to tidy up the engine bay! Maybe it's not perfect, but it's nice for a 21-year-old car!
  6. Alfa GTV Competizione

    Yes, give us some more recent photos, I saw great one by M. Kopp Photography on some Facebook list! The car is now near perfect!
  7. 916 in USA

    Welcome Ron! 916 is very rare in the States. There was some import there but not by any official dealer, it was rebranded as "Autodelta GTS"(!).

    On the end I found water pump with metal impeller, it's from Thermotec, and also there is a HEPU model with a metal part, and also it seems that SKF part has metal impeller and so on... so you just need to search a bit. Also, as it's hard to get the new oil cap for Busso, I made it with Adobe Illustrator and computer cutter! If anyone need the source vector file, I can email it!

    I found out that there are water pumps available with metal rotor! I'll let you know the brand and model number tomorrow. It seems that many GTA engine owners buy those for old GTV 3.0 as the newer cars (147/GT/156) use the plastic one. There are also some reports on Alfa forum that plastic pumps can fail in 40-50k km, so better to be safe than sorry.

    The timing belt job has finally started today... I made an arrangement with my mechanic (and friend) so that I try to do it myself, of course, in his workshop and with his supervision. It's super interesting but not easy at all... now I fully understand why such kind of work is expensive. Day one I have done the whole disassembly except for the water pump - I needed help there as it's really nasty to get it out without removing the engine. However, it's possible, my mechanic has a lot of experience. The interesting thing is that the original Alfa Romeo part has metal rotor in the pump and every new replacement part today uses the plastic rotor. I don't like that but there is no choice. I hope it will last. Also, during process we have found out that lower engine mount is in bad shape (no wonder after 21 years!) so we'll replace that too. I'll write on as I progress with the service... Wish me luck!

    I just couldn't resist to make a Photoshop simulation of the Scudetto sticker for your beast! It's that familiar face that we all love and recognize... it shouldn't be expensive to make in on cutter or in some print shop that do quality color prints. I intentionally used Phase 1 scudetto beacuse there is no place for chrome on this racing machine! Consider this for the sake of tradition!
  12. Hello from Kent, New GTV owner!

    Welcome! You'll be happy with the bunch of lunatics here!
  13. GTV 2.0 Twin Spark Turbo

    It's a privilege to have such a nice track 15 min from downtown, such a joy to drive...
  14. GTV 2.0 Twin Spark Turbo

    And some more uploads from Grobnik.... the track is superb now as it has super-fresh asphalt!
  15. GTV 2.0 Twin Spark Turbo

    And now something special... GTV 2.0 Twin Spark Turbo with Quaife LSD on the Grobnik racetrack in Croatia. (And if you wonder about that Lambo - yes, later on he passed that Gallardo!)
