Adapting a Mumford linkage to an Alfa should make a world of difference. The high rear roll center has always been the weak link in Alfa handling. The Mumford link should put paid to that once and for all.

The Steck modded Spica manifold had two nipples tapped into the supposed balance tubes on the bottom. By tying together the two nipples he created a very accurate map pressure point to tap into and connect to the map sensor. I believe that the brake booster is still coming off cylinder 4's port like a stock setup.

For money-saving ease you can't beat Ford's EDIS module. Late model Megasquirt will generate the "SAW" signal that is all that unit needs to set timing, advance and dwell. One wire between them. Add high current to charge the caps and a ground - you're done. It's wasted spark, but Ford did make a unit for the V8s that has four coils...

Lovin' the digital Alfa future,

Randy's Italian Lot:
1978 Sport Sedan - "Cecilia", a rustfree Alfetta
1990 Mondial T Cabrio - Engine major service, climate control overhaul, and interior tune up still to go - Short is on it!!
1958 Giullietta Sprint. "G.Sprint" No holds barred. 3.0 Liter 12 Valve V6 and Verde transaxle just to get warmed up!
1976 Alfetta GT. Twin 45 Dellortos. Alfetta maintainence drug while Cecilla gets restored.
1978 Alfetta GT. Ex Keith Martin, and getting a nice set of Euro Bumpers along with the rest of the good parts off the '76.
ON HOLD 196x Lancia Flaminia Sedan - name and the rest TBD.

...FYI...

Interestingly enough - we are about to get another new 4-wheel load-dyno in the Seattle-area.... (Actually, an upgrade to a current shop!)

P.O. should be signed this week and the Sema show! More choices - now we're cooking with gas. Taking Group 2's own GoTech Pro 4 ITB '74 GTV 2000 to the dyno tommorrow and Jes' GoTech Pro 3.2 GTA 24 valve Milano Verde to the dyno next Saturday!

By the time the two 3.7s are up and running again, the new dyno should be installed!

Full-Race 6-Speed Getrag 3.7 Litre 24v Milano; 1993 155 TS 2.0; 1999 24 Valve 3.0 916 GTV; 1995 164Q; 1987 Milano Verde; 1966 GTV Stepnose

Hey JJ, any chance of posting some facts and figures on the go-tech throttle bodies? Sizes? Prices? Pictures?

Best,

Randy Lee

Sure, please call me manana and remind me - I'll do it for sure!

By the way, Joe's little GTV 2000 (the ' 74 in question here with stock internals) turned over 110 at the wheels yesterday running the GoTech Pro!)

Ran like a champ, smooth, no over-heating - just a gem! He was very happy...

remind me please - I will post sheets too!

I figured that this thread has become bastardized enough. I have started a new thread next door to talk about specific GoTech applications, installation details, options, prices etc etc - including those sweet 4 individual throttle-bodies....

" (he did ask why there was always oil on his dyno after the Alfas had been there and I told him that it was to keep his dyno from rusting..." That made my day

The passenger seat is 15 miles an hour faster than the drivers seat.
