Re: Stronger Gearbox for 166
I don't know if there is any truth in it, I would guess the 6 speed internals are pretty much the same throughout. Alfa aern't in the habit of changing things too much from car to car.
If there was to be any difference it would be on mounting lugs/points and very obviously external features.
The weakest point appears to be the diffs any way. I have just replaced my FL 166 ti 3.2's diff with a q2 upgrade, after both planets perforated the box housing, putting a 2"x3" triangular hole through the casing.
Speaking to Lloyd at clovertech, who has himself owned numerous 164 cloverleafs, he has blown at least three boxes, all damage to diffs.
