Eurospec 2 liter Alfetta 2000 (1977-1984) & Alfetta 2000 GTV(1976-1986) 2 lter 4 cyl. had different engine specs then US spec cars. I would like to diagnose the mechanical and performance differences in these eurospec cars in the years produced above.

AR rated power for the late model 2L 4 cyl as follows:

Alfetta 2000 (1977-1984)
Power 140 hp
Bore x stroke 84 x 88.5mm
Capacity 1962cc
*(Weighs more then the Alfetta 2000 GTV, and I speculate hotter cams and tuning) Seems backwards but AR rates it @140 hp (10 hp more then Alfetta 2000 GTV).

Please share your knowledge on these factory euro spec cars. Many of us in the USA never knew what these differences were.

Personally I owned an Alfetta GTV 2000 ´78 and an Alfetta 2,0L ´80 so I have some data and memories about that ownership.

The 2L engine in the Alfetta and Alfetta GTV first only had the same power as the 1.8 but it had much better torque, so it was better to drive. When the new GTV2.0 came and also the Alfetta 2.0L it had better cams and 10 Hp more power. There were used three types of carburettors, usually Dell Orto but also Solex and Weber. Rumors had it that the Webers gave most power, Solex beeing the weakest. So when I bought the Alfetta 2.0L I had the dealer to change the Solexes to Dell Orto.

The given specs for the 2L first series was 120 Hp DIN at 5300 rpm.

The Specs for the second series with better camshafts was 130 DIN Hp at 5400 rpm.

I still have a set of almost non used second series camshafts since the Alfetta was turbocharged and the cams were changed to the first series. Which worked much better with turbo. So there was a significant difference between the two cam types!
