This car originally had a 1756cc engine, which was destroyed by the previous owner. It now has a rebuilt 1995cc ("2 liter") engine block, and dual Weber carburetors with Serra air cleaners. The distributor is technically facing "the wrong way" because the bigger engine is taller than the original, and if the distrib faced the right way, it would bump into the hood (so I've been told). Since the car is over 25 years old, it doesn't need emissions inspections, so the performance-robbing plumbing is GONE!
A really crappy engine like mine.
▲Here's what was under the hood, before I did anything but add some loud Italian FIAMM air horns.
Here's the driver's side of the engine, after I put in the new horns.
Next photo shows what the stock engine looks like, with big air cleaner and lots of emissions control plumbing. YUCK!
The right-side of the engine bay is now home to a Crane Cams Fireball XR3000 high performance electronic ignition, along with a new Bosch coil, both from International Auto Parts.
The car was equipped with a rusty Ansa exhaust system. Now it has a stainless steel exhaust and European "high performance" pipe segment from Fun Imported Auto & Toys.
