The V6 Ti Engine in the DTM 155.

Is this the Arese Engine tuned to the max?

Sounds amazing..

Re: The V6 Ti Engine in the DTM 155.

The DTM engines were not related to production engines at all.

There was an article on that car in auto italia a while back.

The engine is a 90º V6 not a 60º like the Arese V6

I think there were at least two different versions of the DTM V6 some 60deg, some 90deg.
None of them based on a production engine though.

What difference would it being 90 degree or 60 degree make to the engine other than its size and shape?

90º will probably be not quite as smooth, as it is not the optimum Vee angle for a V6

Reduced engine height with a 90deg V though.
Later cars ran a lot lower than earlier cars.

They were also using a very uneven firing order. Smooth running at low revs wasn't a priority!!

I found the article in auto Italia last night, and it said it was based on a shortened V8 possibly from a Lancia or the Montreal..

Eeerr, I think I don't need to. In '93 and '94 I was very "up to date" with DTM (i.e. in September '93 I was on Avus track during DTM round, Asch in Mercedes 190 won) and remember regulations wery well. It states the engine configuration shoud be as in any other engine of the same manufacturer. Thats why first Alfa DTM engines was V6 60º as Busso V6. When Step 2 was under development Alfa Corsa found that there is no restriction that amount of cylinders and angle between both cylinders rows must be taken from just one type of the engine. So they designed new engine with six cylinders in V configuration like Busso V6 and 90º as Tipo 33/Montreal V8. That was done to lower the center of gravity and thanks to lower height of engine the whole car was much lower (compare the height of the sills in Step 1 and Step 2 cars). But the engine didn't have any common parts with Tipo 33 engine. Don't forget in '93 it was well over 20 years old engine.
I hope it is understandable as english in not my first language (I'm sure that it is very visible anyway).
