Wave Hello

Hi All

I joined a while back but this is my first post.

I'm sort of an Alfa owner as I'm building a Lister Bell Stratos and bought a 1999 166 Super as the donor. Now before you all berate me for butchering such an awesome car let me explain.....

It was bought spares or repair, over 170k on the clock, mismatching doors, heavily corroded wheels etc. etc. Once the engine was out you could see the rust was starting to take over in places and it was not long for this world. So I've not killed a nice one - I've used it to breath life into something else!


I'll be asking for engine advice soon as I plan to have it completely rebuilt. Although I'm finding out that parts prices are mad!

Has anyone ever put BMW E46 M3 ITBs on the 3.0 V6? Looks like an interesting option with perhaps and Emerald ECU?

I can't put ads in the classified but when I can I'll have a few bits for sale. Light grey front and rear seats (no door cards) that could do with a clean but no tears etc. 4 pot front calipers and a Radio/telephone/Sat Nav unit with code.
