GTV from the south of Spain...

Hi there!

I'm Mario, from Granada, Spain. I know this forum since years, and now it's time to introduce my GTV to all of you.

My 916 is a GTV 2.0 TS... well, that's what VIN says.

I bought the car on Aug 2014, and it was like this:

Nothing special. Just a basic 2.0 TS CF3 GTV with LPG installed and black leather PH3 seats.
 

The engine had the typical TS oil consumption, about a litre/1000km :rolleyes:

Two years later and lots of hours and €, the car looks like this other picture shows:

And the engine...

I've put a 3.0 with GTA inlet cams, 2.5 flywheel with GTA clutch and Porsche Cayenne TB B)
(you can see the process HERE in the spanish Alfistas forum with the help of Google Translate :D )

Also, it has Novitec coilover suspension, GTA anti-roll bar (23mm vs 15mm original) , Toyo T1R tyres and by now it has OEM brakes due to the Vehicle Inspection (here it's illegal to modify the car if you don't pay to an engineer to legalize it) but I have 330mm brakes with Alfa 166 brembo calipers waiting in the garage :ph34r:

And that's all! I hope to be helpful in this forum.

Thanks to all of you :hello:

Wow impressive. Does the larger Porsche TB make any noticeable difference ?

Thanks!

Well... it makes the engine sound lot better. Also, I think the main "problem" in Busso engines is that the inlet  is very poor. So, I can tell you that in medium and high revs, the engine seems to be more powerful. Mostly in mid-rev range.

Just for the price (less than 100€) I think it is worth.

Still waiting for it to explode. Remember to send that beautiful sideskirts to the Canary Islands.

 

You can also attach the Cayenne TB and the inlet pipes too, so I can save some extra money

Thanks you two.

Gaincho, there's no enough money in the world that can buy the skirts and some other secrets I have waiting in the garage :P

Paso, your GTV is an example for me to follow. You have very good taste :thumbsup:

I did not know it would be possible to fit anti roll bar in a 916.

Can you please give me more details?

Btw your GTV looks awesome.
