Ok, Firstly, a big hey out there to everyone. i own a 1990 75 and I just wanted to know what people out there who have already worked on their 75's would consider to be the best additions, in regard to bodywork modifications and slight engine tuning etc.
Also, to give other people 'inspiration' or just ot show off your work, this thread can be used as a showcase of all those beautiful 75's out there. So guys, get posting with those pics, i want a clean fight and may the best modifications win.
I'd recommend a free flow exhaust, I've got one and the manifold makes a big difference, and it's lighter then the cast iron standard part.
A Good set of shocks make a great improvement. Got Koni's meself
As for bodywork there use to be a front splitter which was nice , But can't remember where I saw it ?
Actually Sud75 has reminded me of a good point.. Always start with a brake upgrade.
It's the best and most sensible place to start. Either new OEM parts or an upgraded set, RedDot, Ferodo or if you have the cash Brembo, Btw T.S and V6's have Brembo cailipers as standard!
Don't neglect the rear brakes either, a 50/50 weight distribution means the rears need to be in good working order too. Mine arn't and the right rear locks when braking from speed.... Scary if you've seen it. I had to stop on the motorway yesterday from about 80 and she started to go broadside on me... not fun with an artic alongside.
So I'd say start with brakes, suspension, exhaust, intake maybe a chip for the ECU.
BTW www.Lester.it was the website for 75 bodykits but they no longer list the 75. you could try contacting them
1 - brakes, as mentioned
2 - suspension, and that goes for not just koni's, torsion bars and springs but first and most importent - new bushings, poly is better (you have plenty of those on the front and rear suspension)
after those, go for some more from the engine and making the car look better..
My 3-litre 75 is used on track and road. It has a Harvey Bailey handling kit (bigger anti-roll bar stiffer rear springs), Bilstein shocks, poly bushes and SZ main A-frame bush. Brakes have drilled & grooved discs with EBC Green Stuff pads, braided hoses and racing fluid. Exhaust is by CSC, but engine is un-modified. Its a very nice shopping/track day compromise.
I have also driven a Twin Spark fitted with an RS Racing suspension kit (stiffer roll bar, uprated rear springs, coil-over front helper springs and adjustable suspension). It was fantastic on the track. I have never driven ANYTHING better. See http://www.alfaromeo-performanceparts.com/ for details.
An RS Racing kit is being fitted to my GTV6 as we speak.
