buy the simmons off of ben. they are a bit, but well worth it, and would look hot as on your car...

(Adelaide, Sth Aus.) FS 16" Simmons wheels to suit Alfetta

Ive seen these in person, and they are gorgeous. If they fit my 75 I would have bought them on the spot!

bit cheaper?

Alfa Romeo wheel's to suit 33, Alfetta, Gtv & Giulietta - eBay Wheels, Wheels, Tyres, Car Parts, Accessories, Cars, Bikes, Boats. (end time 15-Nov-08 19:15:38 AEDST)

Whole new motor and turbo? theres 10 grand to do it right... Id be more inclined to either put a twin spark engine and transaxle in it (if you like the giulietta shape) or buy a 75 twinspark, put koni yellows on the thing and have a car that will destroy almost anything through the twisties, save for a porsche or something along them lines...

i was thinking about getting a nord turbo motor from nsw witch cost $2000 with a fkd turbo. BUT then i seen on the alfavic fourm a guy from vic was selling a FJ20 turbo motor with all the parts to fit into a 116 alfa for $1500 ono. he has sold the plate for tail shaft and engine mounts etc etc now wants 1200 for the motor but no good with out the mounting gear.

here is a thew pics of my car when i had the 2.0 bumper .. now i have a ****ty 1.8

If I were you I wouldnt put an FJ20 in it... keep her Alfa... If you are going to spend that money, put a twin spark in it, but then again, for the money of getting a twin spark engine and gearbox (any engine for that), you could get yourself a twin spark 75.

Commodores being the fastest things on the road? In a straight line maybe, but who cares, Alfas arent about straight line, take em to the twisties

yea i understand where you are comming from with the FJ20 thing. I just love the sound of my car its a noise you dont really hear every day. and if it where turbo it would sound even better.

as for a ts i would rather a v6 2.5 or 3.0 or something. AAAHHH its just alfa motors and the the parts arnt allways the easiest to get and the cheapst.

oh yes alfas love the twisties

If you want my honest advice, just spend a little bit of money on making your current engine go nice, or get a nice clean two litre (hmmmm Twin Spark with weber 45s? Yummy!).

V6? Ive got a V6 in my 75, and trust me, once you know how much they are to maintain and have running properly, you'll stick with the TS haha!
