  1. Rear track rods, 4 wheel alignment

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Great, thanks for this... Yep I will take a look see if salvageable. Do the bushes in rear track rods wear out quickly? I guess they are moving about quite a lot on the 916 rear suspension design....
  2. Why do they all look the same?

    General Motoring Discussion
    Come to think of it over the last few years I have noticed that I and my colleagues all complaint about being blinded by on coming vehicles when driving at night. It never used to be much of an issue. Now I know why: it's because of the increase in the number of suv's and the fact that their...

  4. Quad exhaust enigma

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    A lot of smoke as there are cylinders at lots of angles with a radial engine.... And superchargers etc......
  5. What have you done to your 916 today?

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider

Off with coil pack cover... Fiddle with connectors and coil pack 4 connector has worked lose, the clip was not...
  6. Induction System for v6 3.0

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    If you go bigger tb then it may be a good time to go for carbon plenum because act will match the aperture size of your chosen tb. Could always buy a used plenum to port and polish....... The carbon fibre plenum does make a perceived difference, I can tell the engine it breathing better, then...
  7. Quad exhaust enigma

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    When the car gets used frequently then no smoke. When garaged for a while then started it does smoke a bit. Passed mot with very low emission readings though. My other gtv p3 V6 does the same. I agree no smoke would be better......
  8. Quad exhaust enigma

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Great that would add up. Thanks it was bugging me all day...
  9. Quad exhaust enigma

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    P3 V6 with ragazzon quad exhaust fitted which is effectively a single pipe forked into 2. I would think that the exhaust output would be split equally between the left and right tubes, but no... The left exhaust is the dominant o e with more smoke coming From it. Any ideas?

    Nice looking car, sorry I mean small suv. I guess it's a fiesta on steroids then... Which isn't a bad thing because I like the fiesta. I get the impression that the designers were being very careful not to stray too far from the beaten track. Lots of good features too and the dash looks great...
  11. CV joints - strip and rebuild

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Should be able to find new wheel bearing, if I remember correctly they are a gm part as used in vauxhall vectra..... So should be readily available.........
  12. Why do they all look the same?

    General Motoring Discussion
    Where do I go to take a look? The fact that it is different has got me very excited... Any pictures?
  13. CV joints - strip and rebuild

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Yes that makes sense. The reason I needed to replace mine was because there was no way that the shaft would come out the hub.... Tried everything and it just was not having it..........
  14. Induction System for v6 3.0

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I did the engine in 'Rovero' but stopped short of the fuel rail. I got a new water bottle from totally alfa or eb spares can't remember now. I like the gold and red lettering, very unique.... I was thinking about an act carbon fibre intake pipe but think it is for gt and not gtv...... There is...
  15. Induction System for v6 3.0

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Great looking engine bay 👍The oem induction has several resonators which you have removed to fit your induction hose, loving the red silicone.. What difference in sound and or performance have you noticed?

    Nightmare today, parked perfectly central in supermarket car park, got out no problem. Came back from shopping, audi suv parked on my driverside and it was so difficult to get in my car.... What a load of stress it caused me. The audi was massive.......why on earth does anyone need a vehicle...
  17. Clover Leaf badge for GTV

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Yes they are the right ones. They are flexible so go with the curves. Just be very careful when applying them, you get one shot because once they touch the surface they ain't coming off without the paint🍀 They look so cool though on the gtv, don't know why alfa didn't fit them as standard..... A...
  18. Clover Leaf badge for GTV

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Triangular quadrofolio badges from parts world. Must be genuine part or could look odd... Easy to fit as self adhesive. Not sure about steering wheel though. I think the badges are for guilietta......
  19. Induction System for v6 3.0

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Green cotton filter is my preferred free flow filter. It's is a simple replacement for stock filter. Check no leaks especially in the underside of the flexi corrugated part as they are prone to splitting, also make sure gasket not leaking at throttle body to plenum join. A smoke test would...
