1.8 ts gt

gt project started

Hi all
just wanted to make myself known im from the south wales area
and will be on here picking peoples brains for info for my gt project

turbo charging,chassis refinements,gearbox alternatives,fabrication etc etc

little story about my alfa love afair so far

bought my gt last year i needed a reliable car to get me back and forth hospital for radiotherapy treatment
i was having, was looking at all the usual rubish then spotted this car for sale and thought thats the one for me
i remembered when they first came out as i was driving my vaux calibra at the time and thought to myself WOWW that would be the only thing i would replace my cally for

weird how things turn out when your down

anyway it was a bog standard blackline 1.8 ts model
but over the last few months have decided to start fiddling with her so far ive only done the looks department
as i think it needed it
All outside chrome has benn deleted and gloss blacked instead, lowered 40mm front 30mm rear
more enhancements to follow

1.8 ts gt

bit of an update
been very busy lately fabricating things for a big project so the alfa had to take a sideline
but while I was doing this Volvo T5 Engine Transplant - Projects - VX220 Owners Club
I slowly started to gather parts as they came my way for a 2.0 ts turbo conversion

I had a vague idea of where I wanted to go so waited till things that were suitable turned up

a complete 2.0 ts cf1 type perfect for the base

the intercoolers are focus st and rs unsure whih ill use yet as ill see what fits

brembo 332mm rotors with 166 callipers will have the bells custom made

turbo is a t28 from a Nissan skyline it will do for the initial setup as ill later change to either a gt2860rs or gt2871
