Ahm no longer doing race builds

Just called AHM to book my car in for an s/c conversion to be told they no longer offer the service of race builds.

Need a new plan of someone who can offer the full service with a custom map for an s/c conversion.

Any ideas or recommendations ?

Or you could volunteer to be the test mule for a turbo conversion. I think the Autolusso boys are keen too try it.

If he was nearby I would not have thought twice mate. Looks like I will have to go back to my original plan and have sunnyside or poweritalia install and get Gus down to map it. Will just need to ask reddot if I can use their dyno for some runs.

We can do it, we can do anything you can pay for

We have an Autodelta one in we are having to re do as it is a total bodge

I understand u wanting the car not too far away so u can check up with work in progress, one company I want to visit is njs pershore as its not that far from me and I know he races alfa, may take my car there for an oil change and check out their set up. Autolusso no doubt are more than capable of doing the job, don't know how far the journey is but u need to make sure it's done properly with all the research and work you've gone through. Plus they have an autodelta conversion which may be a bodge but a good working comparison to build on.

Andy are you opening it up and lowering compression etc or just fitting it for now? I remember speaking to you about it before but I can't remember what you decided to do in the end.

Just a big thumbs up for NJS from me. I'm in cardiff, so they are just up the road from me compared to Autolusso. Neil did a warranty job on my failed head gasket before Christmas. Valves ground at same time. New clutch and Q2 fitted and a new ARB. Car transformed. Two months on and running and handling sweetly.

my kit is developed properly and is ready to just be bolted on. I only want it mapped by AHM or Alfatune.
I know the boys at Evolve and they are good at what they do. If I wanted mycar maped by them or I had a BMW, I would have given them the whole job.

If I decided to go higher boost I would have opened her up to lowered comp and forged internals and will also loose the air con for a twin charger setup but I dont think the gearbox would take it and would have had to go stand alone management. So its low boost but with all the trimmings for me.
I probably will open her up at a later date for head work and forged internals for the sake of it.
I think the boost im going for is the limit before i will need stand alone and uprate the whole fuel system.
oh and Dan im still waiting for a reply to my text from earlier

Neil Smith owns and races (very successfully too!) the ex-Tarquini WTCC Alfa 156.

You will not go wrong there and just up the road from me.

Also was the Integrale independent so knows his way round turbos
