I'm indeed very impressed!

And I really hope you'll keep us informed of the progress on this car, and give us some information about the performance!

Cilinderhead
« Reply #4 on: March 01, 2004, 11:00:29 AM »
Hi!

i'm working on a abarth engine for my 127 Surf (a portuguese mk2 model)
what changes did you do to the cilinderhead?
is it a one off item or do you manufacture?

i have an abarth kit (valve cover/intake for a DMTR) but i would like to use 2 twin carburettors instead

i'm also searching for abarth valve springs (rated 12.000rpm) do you know where i can find them?
There is no place like 127.0.0.1 :)

i have a brand new a112 abarth(70hp) cam for my engine, the carbs i have at home are DMTR 32/34 if i'm not mistakended the pistons are stock, i'm trying to find the belt for the belt distribution kit but i cant seem to get my hands on one, do you recon i should upgrade the valve springs? or will the stock ones work for me, the cilinder head is polished and ported and it has big valves, what kind of performance can be expected from such a preparation? the bottom end of the engine is fully lightened, polished and balanced

Upgrading A112 motor.
« Reply #7 on: November 06, 2004, 04:04:49 PM »
With regard to the A112 motor, there is one item that I would definitely replace, the connecting rod bolts.  In 2004 I witnessed at least 5 wngine failures directly caused by standard bolt failures.

As far as upgrades to the A112 motor, it all depends what you plan to do with it.  The standard valve springs (presuming that they have not run a couple of hundred thousand miles are quite OK for 7500 RPM.  Above that you need better.  Rather than talk about types or color coded springs, let look at specifications.  Valve closed seat pressure should be 70 PSI, valve fully open 260 PSI.

If the application is for the street, then the standard A112 70HP camshaft is quite good.  I hear people using 230 degree camshafts.  Well if you are doing all out racing, have a very close ratio gearbox and are willing to keep the RPMs between 7000 and 10,000 RPM, then this cam might work well.  Don't go for too much duration or it will hurt driveability.  If you do want to change to a BIGGER cam, I would recommend something that has a little bit more duration, and more lift.  By going with more lift and then some more duration the total valve opening period will be increased markedly.

I noticed a misprint in my earlier comment.  The cam reference should have been 320 degrees, not 230  degrees.

Hello from Denmark.

I know it's an old post, but I hope you still can help.

I have about the same setup

40 mm DCNF
32 valves in
29 valves out
4-1 manifold
302 degree camshaft with 7,2 hub

Im having BIG problems with the engine.
IIt's running to fat on low Rpm and VERY lean on high Rpm.

I have tryed emulsiontubes F22, F24, F25, F30, F33 and F36 but the diffrence is so big that it have to be fixed mekanicly. I'ts to big to change only by the tubes.

Witch tubes and jets have you used in your setup?

(I allsow have a set of 36 mm DCNF if needed)

Thank you.

Here is som pictures.

Henrik,
          It is all in the set up of your carbs.I think you need smaller chokes/venturis (both 36 or 40 mm carbs are fine).If the cam is dialed in correctly a professional dyno can get that set up running very well.
