Some people are giving up on Alfa Romeo created components and putting in TREMEC T5 transmissions. Fair enough your car, etc. ...................................
... but I, while I do follow Bianch2's engine conversion, really do wish people that expect old cars to be like new cars, would just actually buy the new(er) cars and leave the good old stuff to those that like them
. We won't punish you for being honest and finally admitting to YOURSELF
that you don't actually like old Alfas and only peer pressure has kept you pretending to play the game.
There are many Alfa Romeos I would never own, i.e. 105 Spider, 2600, GTV4/6, 147, 159 ... and probably more I can't think of off the top of my head, but I don't go and buy one and then whinge and moan about how bad it is and re-engineer it to be something I like. I'd build a kit car, or my own design, if I wanted to have that 'I built it feeling' ...
