I have never considered changing seats. The originals look just right and are as good as any. With the telescoping steering sheel, seat back adjustment and seat height adjustment it is easy for anyone short of a giant or midget to find a comfortable driving position. For the cost of quality replace...

Ford 2.8 V6 kits.

Hi Guys, I have gotten the kits going again and am taking orders now. I almost have the ten required to get the best price break. I would suggest to anyone who is seriously considering converting his Alpine, that now is the best time, because I don't know how long it would take to get another ten or...

Chuck, you were right, there is no spring in the bottom hose. It probably disintegrated 20 ears ago!! I decided to take advantage of the winter break and fit a new clutch. I just took off the hose, so now I know. Is there anything you recommend I do while the engine is out? I was thinking of fittin...

i'm sure a lot of people will be glad to hear this news!

You wouldn't be the first one to want one of each. They are different in almost every way. I would love to have an example of both, myself.

Hi Guys,

I'm happy and proud to say, that the kit is back in production and can be ordered by sending me an e-mail requesting a new price sheet and parts list. I am presently taking orders so I can make the first run of kits.

Hi Jim,

I would tend to believe that mileage, because I used to get 24+ in mine, and that was without an overdrive to help. Another good thing about these V6's, is they do all of this on regular gas.

HELP!!

Hi Guys,

I'm ashamed to say this, but I received an e-mail from someone asking about my V6 conversion kit, and I seem to have deleted it before I could answer it. Whoever it was, PLEASE send me another e-mail so I can put you no the list.

Hi Chuck,

I was going to have new springs made for my Alpine, when I wanted to lower the front. If I remember correctly, it was going to cost $110 for the pair. If you were to go this way, you could get the exact stiffness that you want, at exactly the hight you want.

A blower sticking up through the hood, isn't legal in most states either. I have been working on a blown V6 Alpine, that when it's done, will end up being just a race car or show car. It won't be legal in California, where the owner lives. The forward vision is restricted, so most states made them i...

Especially if it has a hot V6 in it. :mrgreen:
