Alfa specialist - Dublin

OK as already stated on the main forums, I've bought the following parts for my pride and joy.
Now im shopping around for somebody trustworthy to fit the parts.
I've heard Gerry in ti autos recommended.
Anybody else ??

Also
(1) Is there anything else i need that i may have missed

(2) Does the engine have to be dropped out of the car to do the work.
Can anybody give me a rough guide as to the work involve or a simple step by step as I'm in the process of shopping around and dont want garages pulling the wool over my eyes.

Thanks in advance for all your advice/Input

Re: Alfa specialist - Dublin

Sub frame out for the gearbox. You need to buy the cam locks for the cambelt. Q2 is splitting the gearbox. Gerry at Ti autos is meant to be good. In Dublin or Alasta autos.

Gerry fitted a Q2 to my GT. I know of someone else (not sure if they are on AO, but are on Alfaireland) who has had a Q2 fitted.

Re: Alfa specialist - Dublin

They fixed some stuff on my car a few weeks ago. They are still beside the petrol station, after the Kilternan Country Market if you come from Stepaside towards Enniskerry.

Yeah thats were I thought they were, just on the corner. I'm going to have another look, it could be mad news for me if I imagined something like that

Re: Alfa specialist - Dublin

Gerry is the Alfa king, you would want a really good reason not to go to him...!

Seriously, I don't know what I would do without the man....!

Re: Alfa specialist - Dublin

would have to agree with some of the guys here, Gerry in TI Auto is so far above anyone i've ever dealth with before, he's a true Alfa genius, he's a pleasure to deal with & his prices are very good.

Re: Alfa specialist - Dublin

Gerry does all my alfa work, on the '76 GTJ I had and my current GTV V6. He fitted a Q2 to it... at the same time as I had a lightweight flywheel and GTA clutch fitted.

What type of money did he charge to fit the Q2 diff?

I don't really want to preempt his pricing as it could vary from car to car etc, plus he had a clutch in stock for some reason and may have given me a deal on it.

I got a clutch, flywheel and Q2 fitted all at the same time for "about 1500".

Getting a Q2 fitted by itself is likely to be 1000+ though I think. Aren't they about 400-500 including all bearings and seals + alot of labour. I only got it put in as I was having work done on the flywheel anyway so it was more cost effective. Lots of stories on here about the diffs going and taking the gearbox with them so it was a "cheap" form of insurance.
