1974 Alfa Romeo GTV 2000
This engine is a Four Cylinder all Aluminum, Double Overhead Cam, Hemi Engine. In original 1974 stock form it made 116 hp in USA format. This rebuilt engine has European Pistons, High Lift Cam Shafts, Ported Cylinder Head, Balanced Rotating Mass, Lightened Flywheel and a Stainless Big Bore Exhaust. This engine, now with the current rebuild, generates about 165 hp 35% more than the original engine. The Spica Fuel Injection is a mechanical fuel injection system. It has a small pump located on the side of this engine that rotates at 1/2 engine speed. This pump pushes fuel through the steel lines to the fuel injectors up to 900 psi. The Fuel Injectors open at 550 psi and spray a fine mist of fuel into the engine. The fuel is regulated by the throttle position, as well as the engine coolant temperature, the engine rotating speed and barometric pressure. The reason this car is so fast with only 165 hp is because it weighs only 2000 lbs! Documented receipts.
