Product Description

Review

Anyone contemplating a rebuild of one of Alfa's late model twin-cams would be well advised to check out this book before starting work. --New Zealand Classic Car - December 2006

The book is illustrated throughout with mainly colour photos and the author writes in a simple, easy-to-understand way which is vitally important for getting technical information across accurately. Not exactly a coffee table book, (unless you are a real Alfa tech geek) but a must have for any Alfa enthusiast who wants to get the maximum performance from their engine. --Classic Performance & Retro

About the Author

Jim Kartalamakis, 52, was born in Salonica, Greece. After finishing high school in Athens he went to Toronto, Canada, to study Electrical Engineering. At age 23, after a few Detroit musclecars, he bought his first Alfa and that s where it all started. Thirty years later, Jim still vaguely, but fondly, remembers the life and times of the ARCC (Alfa Romeo Club of Canada). He returned to Greece in 1979 and, ever since, has had one job (Aerospace Industry) and one make of car, although different models from a 1750GT, through Alfetta GTV, 75 3.0 to, currently, another 75 3.0 and a 1.8Turbo. The all-encompassing Alfa hobby has led to many engines being built, mostly for friends, and frequent trackdays to seriously test and enjoy the resulting performance. For many years Jim was a technical writer for many car magazines, and the official Alfa Romeo technical manual translator in Greece. All this car-related life (racing, parts-buying trips and other disappearing acts) has sometimes taxed the family s patience, but an understanding wife is always a gift from heaven. The author s only regret is that he still hasn t convinced her to sit in the car for one flying lap to see, and feel, what it s all about, just one ...

I have been building and modifying cars for over 20 years and this is one of the better tuning books I have read.

Unlike many other books, (like the David Vizard A series guide which is the most badly edited book ever written), this is clearly laid out, sets out realistic performance goals and shows you how to acheive them.

I think it is pitched perfectly for experienced tuners but it would also enable you to take your first steps. The most impressive information is in the head section, which provides information not available anywhere else.

I do wish there was room for forced induction, nitrous applications and in depth twinspark data, but perhaps that will be another book for the future. Looking forward to his V6 book for sure.

Proof of the pudding is in the dyno and I built a solid 187bhp 2000cc engine using his instructions so I have given it 5 stars. Great job Mr. K!

I bought this thinking it would give me some ideas for tuning my Alfa engines.It didn't.
The author may well know what he is talking about, and probably does, but the book really suffers from not being properly edited. It is badly laid out and written and is punctuated inappropriately with, particularly, loads of irritating exclamation marks.
Its a shame as the author is obviously enthusiastic.
I would not recommend this book.

Informative, Interesting and above all never too technical and boring, this is a great book for any Alfa Twin cam owner who wishes to enhance it to a higher state of tune.
