Re: Autodelta 3.7 GTA AM engine
Hi again, everyone! Thanks for all the replies - obviously I'm not the only Alfaholic out there!
Originally I'd found a standard 3.2 engine (with ECU & 6-speed transmission) in Auto Italia magazine, however I'm now awaiting a call from Jano at Autodelta about the 3.7 unit. I think around 320 bhp & 250 lbs/ft, when mixed with rear-drive, a slippy diff & relatively narrow tyres, should equal a whole lotta fun....!!
I've already spoken to Adrian at AH Motorsports - he suggested that converting the GTA engine from FWD to RWD would probably be the easiest way of getting the outputs I'm looking for. He also suggested I talk to Alex Jupe Motorsports about other alterations that will be neccessary - this is fortunate as Alex is the poor individual who'll have to put up with my further insane requests for braking, steering, suspension & drivetrain upgrades!! He's also the nice man who is responsible for turning my bank manager in to my new best friend - I really must thank him for that!
Keep posting any tips, thoughts & reassurance - my wife still needs convincing....
