  1. Big Power GTV 16V Turbo!

    I will get ahead of the owner and will post it in his topic It is pleasant surprise to see one of the most powerful GTV in youtube channel among many very serious tuned cars, good review .
  2. I'm selling two APEXi AVC-R (AVCR) electronic boost controllers, which I have bought second hand some time ago, but did not reach the point to use them... Main features are: two boost modes + OFF mode (boost regulated by wastegate spring) boost by gear boost by rpm with 500rpm intervals scramble boost with additional switch/button - temporary boost setting three modes of data presentation - analog, digital and graphical Below one is modified in such way that cable to get out at the back of control unit instead of original at right side. Price for it is 220 euro. Other one which you can see below have also original package. Price for it is 250 euro
  3. My new performance car

    As I have mentioned in the topic for my GTV, there will have some big surprise from me soon. Which will be the main reason for delaying of the performance project for the GTV. And I decided to start a new topic about it, instead of writing in the topic for the GTV . And here it is Alfa Romeo 155 Q4 widebody. And here is the production numbers of 155 (referring to Wikipedia). 155 Q4 is really rare car and the widebody (facelift) models even rarer And I have seen pictures of only one other blue Q4 (link, someone from Hungary may know this car and his owner). The car is from Denmark and previous owner have owned it from around 8 years, so someone from Denmark may know the car and owner (he and his family are big fans of old italian cars ). So now I have justified my signature .

    Nice group and trip ! Did you drove at Nurburgring? I forgot to reply about pads above. These pads on the picture are "17Z" ones, so "right" pads for these calipers. I'm also with 17Z pads on mine 17Z calipers, but on my setup there is much free/unused area of inside of disc as calipers are a little bit outside of disc and 17Z pads are short. With disc a little bit bigger than 330mm will be better match on my car, but don't see such off the shelf with 330x32mm and close to current offset. So when I change the pads next time I will use 18Z pads, because they are higher.
  5. I'm selling Forge Motorsport universal intercooler with core dimension of 625x180x80 mm. SOLD
  6. I'm selling unused Garrett GT2860RS/GT28RS turbocharger with bigger turbine housing - T25 0.86 A/R. This is also known as Disco Potato . It was bought for a project some years ago. Also included are fitting kit and flanges for turbine housing. SOLD
  7. Big Power GTV 16V Turbo!

    This sound interesting. There is kevlar clutch/es for this model on the market already. How this compare to them? Can it handle such torque on 4WD?
  8. Big Power GTV 16V Turbo!

    Quaife differential is not showed for Coupe, but can be fitted for Alfa V6 with some modifications - other axle half shaft, differential housing from other italian cars from same period from what I remember hear and read, but don't know with details. There is some Coupes with this mod. I see that the car have high torque and look as a street car, so what clutch did you use?
  9. I have one pair of Brembo 18Z 6 pistons (18ZL and 18ZR) brake calipers, which sit from some time and don't see to use them in the future. These calipers are used originally on Audi Q7, Porsche Cayenne, VW Touareg with discs of size 350x34 mm in wheels 18" and bigger, from where their name came. Pistons size are 30/34/38. They are aluminium monoblock, so are solid and not so heavy for its size. They are complete with all pins and clips and come with 18Z pads, which was very little used and. These calipers can also be used with 17Z pads, which a little lower. They have been sandblasted and custom painted with vinyl stickers and haven't been used after that. Around the brake lines probe the paint is fallen, because of some remaining brake fluid and not closed holes. Here is some actual pictures: Price is 400E + shipping. These calipers are really big and their pads respectively also, so to get an idea will add also some pictures from Internet as example (not mine)

    Congratulation for the brake upgrade Which pads did you use, for 17Z or 18Z? Pads are interchangeable between them, 18Z being a little higher. 305 and 330 brembos use different pads. On 330 are bigger and similar as on 166's brembo. These on above picture look like GTA 330/166 pads 305 brembo pads 330 brembo pads

  12. GTV TB: GT2560R & FMIC upgrade

    In my opinion intercooler with such size (as on Carlo's car) is ok for such project and for sure not too big (it is probably closer to be small, than to be big) and fit just fine as can be seen. Also the turbo is efficient one and probably will be used moderate boost. @Carlo Did you have air conditioner? Does this intercooler setup require bumper cutting (but this is related to first question also)? @Thanos Such twin pass design intercooler is not very good. Also in this case is not achieved big benefit from using of intercooler with in and out from same side for shorter and straighter piping, mainly for that between turbo and intercooler. The best design for lowest pressure drop and highest flow capability is with big internal flow area (where charged air goes). Such is achieved for example with design with vertical flow (where in/out are at top/bottom) and with such can be reduced piping and lag respectively. But a horizontal flow intercooler with its long channels there should be higher temperature drop (and higher pressure drop). So some balance have to be made in respect to available space.
  13. GTV TB: GT2560R & FMIC upgrade

    That is a good news . And how it feel and what is current state?
  14. Here is just some photos from one big automotive related trip, that I and two other guys made this year with two italian cars with lampredi 16V turbo engine
  15. "Green hell" trip and more :)

    It was long trip, which take 13 days and around 4800km. I thought to post just several pictures, let say 10-15, but there is so much pictures . Unfortunately I don't have pictures from driving on Spa. I haven't posted pictures from more tourist destination-cities, museums,beer fest. P.S. If charlee is not happy about uploading so much pictures, I can try to reduce them .

  18. Big Power GTV 16V Turbo!

    Hi and welcome to the forum . Look like that was what a project and now you have one of the most powerful GTVs in the world . Have you thought about some other option for the location of air filter. For example in GTV TB windshield washer "tank" is a bag in the boot and the air filter box is at the top of the fender. GTV is heavier car than the Coupe in general, so maybe this car is a little slower than previous one.
  19. My new performance car

    And the next upgrade to the car is made this spring as was planed from some time - suspension. The car was with red Eiback Pro-Kit springs, which are -35mm I think (or -30mm...) and not available anymore and old oily standard black dampers. When I change to bigger wheel and tyres (from 215/40-R16 to 215/40-R17) rear tyres start to rub inside of fenders on unevenness, without any passenger at the back and the tyres are much closer to the inside of the car (from wheels 7.5J ET35 and 20mm spacers at the rear to 7J ET37 and 12mm spacers now). Problem regarding suspension for this model is not much of an options available and after some thought I decide to try with this kit H&R monotube coilovers for Alfa Romeo 155 2.5 V6 from shop.alfisti.net . This is essentyally Bilstein dampers produced for H&Rand H&R matched springs and not adjustment of stiffness front and rear. Rear dampers are shorter, because of -40mm lowering at the back. I did not find any opinion at all for using of this kit on Q4, but from what I have read suspension between Q4 and V6 have to fit on other also. So there was some uncertainties with this purchase ... . The Q4 is heavier car in general and most of this difference is at the back I think. H&R springs are generally very stiff from what I have heard and read so was thinking, that this may work on this car. During install was seen that everything fit on the car, but ... at the rear there is big problem. When the car was put on the ground the rear just "sit on the tyres"! Unfortunately I didn't see it on real or photo, but was explained to me with associations for old citroens or citroen with blown spheres, not seen top part of the tyre from side... So at the back was used old Eibach springs at new dampers from that kit. At the front fit just fine with coilovers set to middle position as from the box. Here is one picture how is now on the back My impression is that there is definitely improvement from before, haven't heard rubbing on rear fenders (without some passenger at the back) and even more comfort from before. Till now my impressions are generally from normal driving in city and highway, so haven't try it with spirited driving on corners yet ... but soon may have impressions from some really interesting places . But with "big" (for this model!) wheels and very low profile tyres (215/40-17, this size is regarded as max on 155) and stiff, short move suspension all imperfections of the road are feel and roads here are not perfect at all unfortunately. Will post some pictures of the car soon .
