What happend with Greg Gordon?

I recall a few years back Greg Gordon (infamous for his V6 supercharger kits, vac hose kits, plus several other things), was pretty active on the BB. I only got back into Alfas in the last year or two, but it appears he hasn't posted in a long time.

He has a website - Silicone Hose Kits , for some reason i could view it when i was recently in Canada, but the link won't work in Australia - it might be geo blocked for some reason? He had a lot of good info on there....

Anyway, just curious if anyone knows what happened, did he become jaded with the Alfa community? It looks like you can still get vac hoses off ebay USA, but little else. Bit of a shame really, he was a wealth of information. I'd look at buying an SC kit, but not sure if he sells them anymore.

For the Road: '67 Giulia Super, '85 GTV6
For the Off Road: '85 Unimog U1700L, '01 Defender Td5

Your link worked here.

The old site has a link to this new site.

It appears some in the Alfa community might have gotten a bit jaded with him, see this thread.

Odd, the old site with all the good info on it must be geoblocked for some reason. Looks like they might have sold off vac hose business to a new owner?

As above, looks like the 'new' business might be run by someone else and he's in the background. They now seem to offer vac hoses for several makes... would be interesting to hear more... does he still do the SC kits?

I emailed with him a few years ago (4? 5?) as I was interested in his supercharger kit for the Nord motor and we had an interesting conversation about superchargers, water injection, etc. He told me he was focusing his efforts on the dark side, errr the (then) new "fix it again tony" roller skates.

If you have access to the new site, try the “TECH ARTICLES” tab to see if it has the old info you may be looking for.

Contact info on the site is: [email protected]

Otherwise I’m not too familiar with the old or new business. Good luck.

I can't access the sales section of the new site either, but can still get into the tech articles section.

I believe this is his new company. New Alfas, not vintage Alfas.

I have many of his vintage Alfa parts on my GTV6.
