New Alfa owner, Lots of questions

Hi I just got my first Alfa a 92' 164L 5-sp for just over 200$. I intend to turn it into a track toy. I believe it is a 3L V6 DOHC? 12v @ 9.5:1 Cr. having owned a few euro cars I guess the belts will need to be done but how bad is it on these cars, and is there a write up?

Is a 24v head swap easily/affordable doable? if so would what would final Cr be as a result?

I heard these cars ran a Motronic fuel injection system, that being said most of the motronics I've worked around have a fuel quality switch that allows you to adjust for low octane fuel in high compression motors. does the 164 have one? If so it would help me alot.

anyways, I will soon be selling lights, leather seats, glass, and other interior components.

Welcome to AO!

Technical knowledge abounds - but not in this lounge

As BF suggested, go to the tech section and ask your specific questions over there - here we just say "Hi" and "Welcome" and we all hug each other
