alfa 164

Ps, I assume QV means quattro valvole, 4 valves per cylinder, is this correct? Did the Busso V6 then have a 2 valve per cylinder, &, a QV, with 4 valves per cylinder?
  Please advise,
Cheers, Robert

164's go by a few different names and meanings.

The standard 164 in Australia came with a 12 valve 3 litre V6 with SOHC from approx 1989 to 1992.

The 164Q in Australia (also known as the 164S) in America is again a 12 valve 3 litre V6 with SOHC with hotter cams, higher compression ratio and a 5 speed manual (with added skirts and spoiler) from approx 1991 to 1992.

The 164QV was only released in overseas markets and featured a 24 valve 3 litre V6 with quad cams (DOHC) from approx 1993 to 1997. Some of these were imported into Australia back in the 90s mainly by a chap called Brian Folley (I think that's his name) and there are still a few around today.

The 'Q' in 164Q is Quadrifoglio.
The 'QV' in 164QV is Quadrifoglio Verde.

Don't ask me why tho  :P

Hope this helps.
