    Hopefully we are all smarter, and wiser...... but I was referring to those that recall a speed story from their youth, and the actual speed on the day, has been inflated somewhat, to make the recalled story more impressive. ;)

    The Fiats had a similar feature,as the 125's and 124s's landed at the dealership we used to take them straight to the local panelshop for rust repairs and to get the wharfies bootmarks out of the bonnet,turret and boot lids before they hit the showroom, but they had beautiful engines.

    Excellent handling, great engine with power. Obviously 'deck cargo on a submarine from Italy'. Great car that handled better as they got lighter!
    Cheers,

    In 1986 I almost bought a 33

    Saw a 12 month old Sud and it was bubbling - and no, it wasn't Carney

    Damn they have a sweet motor, handling and comfort

    A mate had a GTV V6

    The aftermarket fuel injection setup for our aircooled cars is a bit of a new thing. our T3's were injected from factory, but a very simple thirsty worn out old setup now.

    If you can get to Penrith and see Mike at CBB, where AC-T3 got his done that would be by far the best and most hassle free way to go about it from what I've read and heard.

    I have been building my own FI setup on my aircooled 2 liter using a Links ECU and random other bits from other cars, with a balance and a few mods I'm looking for a bit more gusto and better fuel economy and nothing more.
    As yet I have no results as money has run out for the final tune, but it has been a process of broken bits and unhelpful/unwilling tuners. In the mean time it has been simplified a lot while still remaining all aftermarket.......not something I would recommend doing if you want an easy bolt up solution.

    In saying that I haven't spent too much, the results should be good, and I can't wait to get it out on the road.
