Hi Rick! It's a funny thing really, but the serious Alfasud racers would all use adapted VW gearboxes if the regulations allowed them to; the Alfasud transaxle is notoriously fragile when you start putting serious power through it - the input shaft is particularly dainty, and instead of using my finned Alfa 145 sump they use an inch-thick dowelled baseplate!

How serious is serious? Well, we are talking in excess of 200 bhp, so I've a little ways to go yet!

The Alfatune is probably only good for around 150-160 bhp, once I can sort out the cambelt clearance issue...
