Alfa 164 3.2 GTA spec engine rebuild

Postby alfa164superwebmaster » Sun Aug 07, 2016 11:56 am

Hi Guys,

In the past months I rebuilt an engine for my 164, with 3.2 crankshaft, pistons, rods, etc.
A short recap of the project can be found here:

Thanks for the link! Nice work, wouldn't mind putting a 3.2 in my Q4 at some point :)

Well, if you are planning to do an engine rebuild anywhere in the future, you now know that it is possible to upgrade to 3.2 spec without any modification to the auxilliaries :D

Very nicely done, impressive job, congratulations! :D

What about the ECU? Did you use the original Motronic, a remap or something else?

Hi Michel,

very interesting job that you've done.

In the video you state not to know what to do with the "3.0" intake. Hope you know that this kind of intake from the early 24V is rare - so please don't modify this intake, others maybe glad to get it.

Have fun with your 3.2

Thanks!

I know the current intake is quite rare, so I will not change it.
If anyone is interested in trading it with the more common 'V6 24V' inake (without the 3.0) please contact me.

Cheers

The car is currently running the stock ECU, After 1.500 kms break-in it will go to Squadra Tuning to get a custom remap.

Today I went to Squadra Tuning for optimalisation of the ECU to the 3.2 engine.

I am really happy with the results, the highest dyno run was 267 HP and 309 Nm.
Not bad for a 20 years old 164 :-) (with a new engine :lol: :D )
