    In light of this video Leigh I think you need to rebuild your engine using a 2.5 crank and longer rods to create a 2.8 litre screamer which is fitted with a single exit exhaust...……...

    Where do you get the rods for a 2.8?

    If there are no matching OE parts available then HERE or other similar manufacturers.
    2.8 is a guess as I had heard of someone doing a similar swap to create a low comp motor for turboing in the past


    Updated with the following information.
    Excerpt from the Alfa V6 page on Wikipedia-
    2.8 Gleich[edit]

    In 1982, the German Alfa Romeo dealer and tuner Gleich offered a 2.8 conversion of the GTV6 2.5 engine. Dieter Gleich was sure that engine displacement enlargement is still the best and, for the life of the engine, the healthiest way of tuning. The engine capacity was increased to nearly 2.8 liters by using new bushings and custom-built forged Mahle pistons while the compression ratio was raised from 9.5 to 10.5:1. The 2.5 liter was rebored to 93 mm (3.66 in). Total displacement was 2,783.7 cc (2.8 L). Power produced were 191 PS (140 kW; 188 hp) at 6,300 rpm and torque 24.6 kg⋅m (241 N⋅m; 178 lbf⋅ft) at 4200 rpm.[14]The magazine "Sport driver" tested a 2.8 Gleich powered GTV6 in June 1982:
    "After engaging the first gear and a somewhat careless step on the gas pedal you get a touched feel to the epiphany GTV6 shot, accompanied by the typical Alfa Romeo exhaust sound. It was a pleasure. The fact was the sprint from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) is not further under the seven-second limited by a tricky-to-be-shifted five-speed gearbox. The really vehement propulsion waned only when the speedometer 230 km/h (143 mph) mark has left behind. Another eye-opening experience awaits when you realize that the lightning speed to 7000 rpm rotating in any gear pinion even in fifth gear still from 1500 rpm is completely smooth."
