  1. V6 Spider ground clearance

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    What clearance have you got between engine/front pipes and ground? I've got flattened exhaust pipes and I'm thinking of fitting Wizard manifolds and front pipes. I Don't want the Wizard to be flattened as well. I've got 90mm from the sump with no persons aboard, std 16" wheels and tyres.
