General rebuilding A33 S16V QV Permanent4
Dear friends of Alfa Romeo
Iím, like you, a proud owner of a wonderful Alfa Romeo, especially I have the beauty witch named 33 S 16V QV Permanent 4 (cat.), my love.
ďSo what;Ē you will wonder I writing that post.
First of all let me tell you some of my Alfaís story:
I take her in September 2005, in no good condition for fair money in Greece. She has a little bit of corrosion on her body, but mostly she is abused by her early owner, bad saloon and bad engine condition, out of order the coupling of the rear wheel drive and in a word if she was other kind of car I could probably sell her for scrap.
But as I said earlier she is my love and I couldnít let her like that, so I have already completely taken out hers interior and the exterior equipments so now she is naked and Iím going to do on her body general rebuilding. I also have bought other one Alfa 33 Ė crashed, unfortunately Ė with she wears a 16V 1.7 engine witch came from an Alfa 146, 1997, with aprox. 40.000 kilometers and with other lovely accessories, like yellow KONIs, EIBACH 30 mm lowering springs, Americat racing catalyst and some other good stuff.
And here I need your help.
With the chance that she is naked Iím going to make some modifications, synoptic they are:
1. Changing the engine with the newer one and place the other stuff from the crashed Alfa.
a. With the new engine I will open it and Iím going to change water and oil pumps with new ones.
b. Should I make some engine modifications? Like blueprinting, cryo genetic (300 below), oil coolant system like the waterís (I donít remember the correct name of it in English), some job on crankshaft, pistons, valves and other moving item in the engine. Here I need real help.
2. Iím going to place wheel spacers. I already bought from the alfisti.net 15mm spacers. What your opinion on that?
3. Iím also going to place steel brake hoses.
4. For better (I think) weight balance Iím going to place the batteries (2 of them) in the back and all the electronic equipment (audio amplifier, inverter, subwoofer, car pc, capacitor and other stuff like that. Is that good?
The above to do and questions list isnít finished but I donít want to make an extremely long post (now isnít so much ).
I hope for your help.
Ps.: Iím very sorry for my English.
Ps.2: I'm sure that many of what Iím asking has been answered here and there in the posts but it's an opportunity to collect all the major modifications and to do stuff in one post.
