I read through your post and wow that's a serious dedication and some great home brewed Engineering, excellent job!

Once it's running smoothly after the map will you take it back to a rolling road and 1/4 mile?

Great post, it's nice to see such a passion for a 16v n/a which are normally unloved because of being less desirable.

Gunzi:
yes I would like to take it to RR (to map it to the "limit" and get last HP) and 1/4 track to see if there is some improvement..first I have to learn to use the car properly again - to be so fast as it can be, because after years with Stilo 1.8 and Giulietta 1.4 170 some "hard" driving habits disapeard... smile

Countrycruising:

I love 16v NA and even 8V NA (I had 8V in Tipo, then converted to 16V, because it were cheap bhp) and If you can work with this engine, you can be very fast on the road and it could be even reliable in daily use (as it was used even withmodifications..).

I have to admitt, that at the beginning of engine rebuild I was inspired by John Lee´s Tipo + his webpage (thankfully it runs again after some pause smile ) and then I was quite frightened with problems he faced...

Pleased to hear it, do keep the thread updated. As Joe says it's nice to see such effort and love for the 16v!

Awesome amount of work and patients you have, the devil truly is in the detail. I would be interested to see the RR results.

She looks fantastic and a real tribute to you.

I prefer the look of coupes without the black line underneath personally. And have to say the change to black wheels does set your car off well.

I think from all your works - she deserves a tune up by Mr Flea himself!


Really great show and tell of your love for the coupe!

Regards

MM

M_M : thank you for your words! I´ve never thing about selling the coupe.. we will last together - forever... even if its now barely used (max. 1000km/year) and keep it in even such service cost much effort/money...

the same case is my Tipo Sedici... which is my first car ever and I still have it.. I got if from my father when he "switched" to 156 in the time I get driving licence smile

Great to see you have had a good year.

It will be great to see all the Coupe from various countries together for the 25th Anniversary trip!
