I drive my cars very hard, quite often and so far after 4 years on one twinspark at 58,000 miles i have had
no problems, my oldest alfa uses very little oil between 6 month oil services.
I was told most Alfas with a thirsty oil habit are prone to valve stem seal failure, so i was guessing
your car was probrably heavy on oil usage, nice to see it confirmed as i was thinking in future of keeping
well away form 7000rpm which i regularly explore on quiet B roads across the New Forest.
I have the mindset of keeping the engine in good health ie regular quality oil and filter changes and decent fuel which
then allows me to use the full performance of the engine without fear of engine failure/ damage.
