Alfa update

Tuesday, August 14th, 2012

we’ve been working on this Alfa for quite a while now. One things had lead to many more and a set of carbs that had been refurbished turned out to be faulty. To remove the problem once and for all the owner had us fit this tasty set of Jenvey throttle bodies and full Canems management. The car is back on the rolling road at the moment and hopefully will reward the owner with some pleasant power figures

Missing misfire

Thursday, September 8th, 2011

This Astra race car came to us with a misfire that only occurs after half an hour or so of running on the race track. We did a few checks and  a bit of digging around. The ECU is a Canems which we use quite a lot of. After running a little data logging and looking at the program it showed the injectors were running beyond their duty cycle and some temperature corrections seemed a little odd. We changed the whole throttle body assembly for one with bigger injectors and the car was remapped to suit. So far it looks as though the problem is solved.

Awkward Alfa

Thursday, July 28th, 2011

This beautiful looking GTV had been giving it’s owner headache and heartache for months. The owner wasn’t shy when it came to getting his hands dirty and certainly know’s his way around Alfa’s. Everyone needs a little help from time to time though and we’re more than happy to work alongside the owners efforts.  The car has a pretty big turbo blowing through twin 40 DHLA carbs with a Canems ECU controlling the sparks. Every part of the system had faults that interfered with each other making the task of getting it running like trying to knit spaghetti. We did a little rewiring and resetting of things which improved the situation. Sadly as hard as we tried the carbs wouldn’t work sweetly, although it was healthy enough for an MoT. These projects are rarely a quick fix, more work in progress. The owner has new carbs on the way and we’ll try again when they arrive. Despite the challenge it’s a pleasure working on such a beautiful and special classic.
