brilliant idea for exhaust, but what about the fumes exiting while at the traffic lights etc? what country is the car in? not another sydney beast is it? [im refering to the twin turbo alfetta sedan, after reading the 'sprint performance' sticker and seeing the gaurd vents, kinda nudged a memory...]
ACE18P, what you've done appears to be of the highest quality. Interesting hood/bonnet. The craftsmanship seems to be first rate. Those welds on the engine bay aluminum parts are really outstanding. I do wonder about the exhaust also. Not only where and how it ends, but adding all of that extra heat next to the donuts/guibos - which I can only assume will be 'stretched' (pun intended) to the limit as it is with all of the additional power.
I am greatly surprised to see what appears to be large amounts of rust in the forward engine/suspension support (last photo).
one very nice gtv that you have built. I'm currently building an 1984 giulietta 2.0l with an efi conversion that I have completed my self, running a new microtech ecu. Just wanted to ask where you purchased the rear vented rotors. I've asked everyone in melbourne and no one has anything. Also what oil pump did you use for the gearbox and where did you buy it? Does that oil get pumped out of the fill plug, into the oil cooler and back into the draining plug in the gearbox.
Overall you have done an excellent job, and please do keep us informed about horsepower levels and various other details, such as ecu type etc, etc.
As Biba mentioned, the front subframe rails are showing their age. I like the color and wheel combo. I noticed that with the wheel adapters and front being lowered, she has quite a bit of negative camber there...
??Anyone happen to notice that the first post/photos was from ACE18P, the subsequent ones from Gturbo, and ever since we've just been talking amongst ourselves??
I confess I still can't get over plowing that much time/effort/money into such an ambitious project and not bother to repair the structure - and possibly reinforce it. It would be nice to hear more about it. Obviously it wasn't a runner when these photos were taken. No spark plug wires, the rear sway bar end appears to interfere with the springs, etc.
Perhaps the person doing the work wanted to show off his handiwork/skills (I sure would) and the owner nixed any more photos?
thanks very much for your reply, being looking for these rotors for a while. Ive got pace engineering number will give him a call.
I'm very interested in the way you have completed the oil cooling system for the gearbox. Could you please tell me what oil pump you used and where you got it? As I to have installed an alfa 75 twinspark gearbox into my giulietta.
Not sure how somebody can tell from a picture how structurally sound a car is .. You must be good!..No it wasn’t a runner when i took the above pic's.. It what u call work in progress ...This is a first "rear sway bar end appears to interfere with the springs” ..very funny ..The operative word is appears that’s all I’m going to say , How about pics of your car luv to see it ..send me a link .
Have you noticed a difference will oil cooled the gearbox in your gtv? How is the shifting?
I try and get some pics of the EFI converted 1984 Giulietta 2.0l as I'm in the process of ordering the lastest Microtech ECU directly from Microtech. As my dad runs an auto electrical shop in melbourne I will be wiring it up myself with his assistance.
Nice car, i am considering a turbo conversion for my Giulietta rally car once i have her up and running correctly. Checking into the homologation for my car with a turbo, car boy is homologated and the engine is also homologated but not quite together but may get away with it!
I have tried to find a website for PACE where you got your brakes with no luck, do you know if they are on line?
Out of interest do you know what sort of volume/Db your exhaust is throwing out? In rallying i need it below 98db for noise regs and was interested in the way you had done yours, but with an extra pipe to side exit it? Its my next job to build so would be grateful of any info.
Must say i do like the aluminium work done in the engine bay etc very nice, as for the rear pipe lines and pumps would last 5 mins on my rally car, most things underneath don't survive long on stage!?!?
My ploy worked. Gturbo, you'd uploaded some incredible photos of your project - then seemed to go away. I figured by making a few critical comments, whoever uploaded them might want to reply sooner rather than later. I am very, very wrong regarding the rear sway bar interfering with the springs. Yes, I should have looked closer as I did just now.
I'm also glad to hear it is up and running. I could well imagine there might be teething problems with such a monumental project.
I'll certainly admit to being only a vicarious bystander seeing both the engineering and craftsmanship which has gone into this project.
