Does anyone know how much horsepower a stock milano single clutch can handle?
Chuck, there is absolutely ZERO wrong with the selection of a clutch-unit that was made for your car! A great deal of $$$ was spent on that clutch unit.
However, as soon as I went on the freeway for the first time (on the way to the dyno shop), I realized that it was slipping, so something is wrong!
Chuck, CLEARLY - in my statements above - I did NOT say that there was NOTHING wrong with the clutch! I said that there was nothing wrong with the clutch-work/options/modifications selected (since similarly modified clutch assemblies worked 100% in the first two boxes/clutches that Andrew prepared for us...)JJ, if there was nothing wrong with the clutch set up that you gave and installed for me it would work right now and It would not be an issue.
Let me tell you why I am adamant that the box should go back to your precious Andrew Garcia for repair/inspection; again - read the pertinent information in my post above and then read what follows here...I personally respect Andrew, his work, and his racing experience. He has been on this board a long time and offers useful info to those in need time after time...
Very NIIIICE to refer to a lawyerJJ,
Gary Hum (Attorney) Call him anytime.
If you had any integrity at all you would not be in this position. Please stop responing to my thread as I have done everything that I original said I would. I can now see why they kicked you off the GTV6 site.
JJ thanks for the link. What a shame for a great service to go down the tubes like that. One thing I would say though,Well, unfortunately the picture is a bit larger than just a simple "beef" - I'm out 13,000 dollars plus between these two!
Here, maybe this will help;
Just to be clear (since there is some misunderstanding, apparently), I only have one street Alfa - a Milano verde with stock engine and management. My race cars are a different story, but they are not subject to smog.What's the penalty for installing gray market engines and engine management systems and helping them get past the California inspectors? I assume you will soon find out John, as will Jes, and Chuck.
What are you talking about?? My engine is not a gray market engine. I have the receipt for a USA car engine with correct VIN's, etc. We have spent hours tweaking the system to pass CA smog, cats, etc and have the correct documents to register the Alfa. Maybe its a mistake to share my build with the public but I thought that this is what one does on this forum. I am not fighting anyone. There were problems that were delt with. Finally, cover up?? I have no idea what you are talking about.What's the penalty for installing gray market engines and engine management systems and helping them get past the California inspectors?

Doing it publicly was one mistake. Fighting about it another. Covering it up?
The CARB of Inspectors will LOVE these threads... documented by the way just in case the mods chooses to delete them and become an accessory.
