  1. Twinspark fitting

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    Does anyone have an idea on the cost of fitting a Twinspark engine to my 105? Thinking about it does anyone know of someone who has done it or a mechanic who would be willing to do the transplant. As rebuilding the Nord seems to be on the high side of £8,000, 10,000 the cost of buying a...
  2. Nitrous Oxide - Twinspark

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Anyone actually done it?# Looking at Wet kits looks pretty simple to install and setup. You basically run a rich mixture through the inlet of No2 + Fuel (Petrol). Something like 11/1 to keep it all from running lean. Though about looking into it as it seems a simple concept. I can get No2...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi got a 2000 1.8 SW - after I wash it can jump in the car and runs fine. A day later loses power, revs, power steering, engines stops etc. restart and it happens again about 10 times in a row. Not sure if keeping high revs cures it or not. Feels like it does but might be just me. Happened...

    I've bought a spider with engine problems, it's a ´96 2.0TS. First examination showed water/oil in cyl.1 spark plug well and no compression on that can so I presume head gasket is gone. The engine is noisier than other twinsparks I've heard run on three cylinders, there's a whining noise from a...
