All complicated by the fact Alfa and Autodelta were in effect state owned companies, Any work had to be somehow justified. Chiti had to go to Rome and explain what the money was being spent on.. Would cost cutting have played a factor in engine development and the use of as much tried and true components in any new designs ? If it was Ferrari it would be a lot clearer...

There is a history write up by an Autodelta employee that was unfinished and still being added to a while back..I think it was being put up on a facebook page (Italian) I get the picture personal views of designers pays a good part in this history it seems..
