Is the short shift kit custom made?

How thick is that Whiteline ARB? Looks massive in the pic ohmy.gif

Careful with the oversteer! laugh.gif

Won't 16" wheels fit with the Brembo calipers on? I thought 16" was enough!

Good work, fella! Keep the updates coming!


ps: oh btw, the Quaife diff arrived here safe and sound! Thanks for everything thumbsup.gif

The front ARB is even thicker!

The short shift kit was from a group buy on the berlinasportivo Q4 forum, will only fit alfa/fiat gearboxes with cables though.

I'm using 16" 155 Speedlines which have rubbish clearance. Could use a 25mm spacer and run big negative camber but I'd rather not.

Glad the quaife arrived, let me know what its like once fitted. Its the one thing I really wish I could have used!

Hope so, it won't be finished for a while. Still got to tax, MOT, insure and get it remapped! None of which will be cheap!! Oh, and get a 3" exhaust system!

Short shift kit fitted. Basically just two ally brackets that move the cables further up.



Bit of non-conversion spending, new heater valve as other one was knackered.



I'm also swapping all hose clips for stainless steel, got a big box of assorted sizes from work coolio.gif

Nice!
166's calipers can be fitted with 310 mm disks into 16" wheels.
Now I have something about 10 mm between caliper and wheel rim (there are ballance weights) and about 8 mm between caliper and spokes. I have original coupe's wheels, 166's calipers and 305 mm coupe's disks.

Cujo, unfortunately the 155 Speedlines have got nowhere near as much clearance as the Coupe wheels. I really want to stick with my Speedlines cos I like them and the tyres are nearly new Pirellis, can't afford tyres right now!!!

I did test fit the Brembos behind the Speedlines, this is with 20mm spacers. Originally intended for my abandoned track car. My BC coilovers might allow enough camber to squeeze the wheels in with the spacers...just!



There is a Rizla paper between the caliper and wheel! Gotta get the brackets made up yet whistle.gif

IgoRR, short shift kit seems fantastic. I won't properly know until I take it for it's first drive coolio.gif

Duncan, it's strange but coupe's calipers fit tight to spokes of that wheels, while I've 8 mm. I guess it can be caused by using jtd's hubs by me.

155 with coupe's calipers, disks and hubs. There are big spacers (more than 10 mm) but they're more thick then it's needed and can be decrease for 7-8 mm.




155 3.0 24v. 166's calipers, 159's 330 mm disks, 156' 17" wheels:



Sorry, I cannot find good photo with wheels on the car. He uses spacers too.

166's caliper pads are wider than coupe's 305 mm disks, so I had to cut off a small portion of the inner edge of the pads 'cause it hangs over the edge of disk.

Managed to trial fit the Brembos behind the Speedlines, needs a 25mm spacer.

Although I've been thinking about the 330mm discs since Cujo posted! Would the 147 GTA discs not be a better option? I'd need GTV V6 hubs as well I guess...

156 GTA has 305 mm disks. I guess 147 has the same.

The later GTAs had 330mm. It's a different part number to the 159 disc though.

I didn't know. Thanks.
One man had installed 330 mm kit on 156 GTA here, but I thougt it was tuting.

330 mm = 17" - I'm almost sure smile.gif

I had loose my brakes only one time after 10 km with speed 130-170 km/h and using accelerator and breke pedals at the same time through the couners. Through two minutes of slow drive they had came back.

145 doesn't weight a little, but not so much - imho.

I think a lot of GTA owners retrofit the bigger brakes. Think you're right about running 17s with them, problem is I can't afford new wheels and tyres so a swap to 5 stud is off. Plus i really do like the speedlines!

Just gotta get some brackets made up!
