Best Year for 2 Liter Engines?
Anybody have any thoughts on better/best years for the 2 liter motors? Any particular year that Alfa made improvements to the basic block/head assembly that would make it worthwhile to look for that year or later? Any year, that from that point on, was stronger or had a problem solved? I'm going to build a warm 2 liter motor for the street with 40 DCOEs, cams, header, porting, etc., nothing too radical. Because of these performance mods., the induction, exhaust, cams, of course won't matter. The local Alfa Guru, Dan Sommers @ Veloce Motors, has literally dozens of 2 liter cores to choose from. No way of knowing any history on any of the cores, so I'm looking for a way to help sort through them & get a good core that will make a good basis for the hot street motor. Thanks, Bruce
