166 3.0v6 24v Vs 164 QV 24v
Just thinking out loud really ,but is the 166 24v ,with 226 BHP ,in the same state of tune as the 164 Cloverleaf 24v with 232 BHP?Same engine?IIRC ,the only difference between the 164 QV and super was the size of the inlet headers ,so presumable the 166 has the 164 QV size inlets?Otherwise ,we could fit the QV headers to a 166 and get close to 250bhp?
Just speculating ,as I happen to have a set of 164QV headers lying around......
I dont imagine it will be that easy ,and presumably Alfa made the 166 engine to Cloverleaf spec to counteract the extra weight of the 166 over the 164?
It would be nice though!
