Hi Jim
I pre-ordered your book about a year ago in Switzerland but didn't hear anything yet.
Do you know if it is now also available in Switzerland?

Hi Philip,
As far as I know, the editor was receiving orders for 1-2 years, but the book has become available just now. I received notice it is on sale in the UK (and will be available in the US in ~10 days). Your best bet is to contact Veloce Publishing right away and find out when you can expect shipment in Switzerland.
Regards,
Jim K.

Well, one one hand I have enough new material for the 75TS engine (2liter 8-valve), the 75 1.8T and the 3liter 24v, but on the other hand, this book business has cost me a $hitload so far. An idea I have is to put all this new material in a book (definitely my last one) along with many different Alfa dyno plots (any engine, any model, various sates of tune) from the same dyno of course for ease of comparison. A comprehansive description of the tested engines will be included with photos. This book will be produced in a limited number of copies -I haven't decided yet but it will be somewhere between 1000-1500. This is just an idea now, I will have to get down to writing after I finish my latest 1.8T engine and my planned 3.2liter 24v, parts for which have already started to arrive ...toyz for boyz...:)

Could you please update your book with mods for the 3.2 V6 as found in the FWD GTV/GTA/GT?
Well, why not, I'd second the post above :D

If for nothing else, the first one is now out of print...

I can't include any specifics on fwd issues as my application dealt only with the 3.2 engine in a rwd car (my Alfa 75, originally 1st series 1.8T). There is a lot that one can do with the engine though, regardless of how it sits in the chassis. Don't ask for dates or additional info, I'm still compiling the work; no idea of when it may come out. Believe it or not, the financial crisis has also influenced my work...:depressed:
