Ten years have passed since the original edition of this book was published, but Alfa Romeo enthusiasts everywhere are more active today than ever in preserving, modifying and racing these excellent cars. Throughout this time, the author in true Alfista fashion, never stopped looking for and trying new techniques to increase the power, overall performance and reliability of Alfas and their engines. This book is the result of much research, and also first-hand experience gained through many Alfa rear wheel drive model projects, from the 105 series to the last of the 75 models. There is a lot of completely new information regarding TwinSpark Cylinder head mods, big-brake mods, LSD adjustment procedure, electrical system improvements, plus many flow-bench diagrams, dyno plots, and much more.

About the Author:

Jim Kartalamakis was born in Salonica, Greece. He went to Toronto, Canada, to study electrical engineering, and at 23 bought his first Alfa, which was where it all started. Thirty years later, Jim still fondly remembers the life and times of the ARCC (Alfa Romeo Club of Canada). He returned to Greece in 1979, and ever since has had only one make of car, albeit different models – from a 1750 GT through to an Alfetta GTV, a 75 3.0 to, currently, another 75 3.0 and a 1.8 Turbo. For many years Jim was a technical writer for several car magazines, and the official Alfa Romeo technical manual translator in Greece.

Review:

New Zealand Classic Car, December 2006

“Anyone contemplating a rebuild of one of Alfa’s late model twin-cams would be well advised to check out this book before starting work.”
