  2. Complete novice fast road engine build, help please!

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    Hi all, I thought I’d start a separate engine thread as I’m rebuilding the engine from the GTV. The engine had been rebuilt by the PO, (camshafts are marked up) compression was good but the few times I had it running it was pretty rough. This was undiagnosed but I wanted to check everything...

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi all, Following some hair raising-moments recently when braking during spirited, but not ridiculous, driving, I'm left wanting for just a little more bite and less fade. I know Ferodo DS2500 are good on V6 as had them mated to Alfaholics calipers on my previous car, but this is quite an...

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi, I've owned my GTV for about 3 weeks now and have spent more money than I wanted to on it! The car is a 98 2.0TS CF2.
