I have a tendency to think that the valve / cam covers should be in black wrinkle paint as is the case on the 2.0 l engines.

Is a problem that we have faced recently in the FB group.
After careful research it was found that the first units had the cylinder head covers gold (not painted but passivated), while all the others had always passivated but in the natural color of the magnesium.
No valve cover of the Fiat Dino Coupé and Spider (2000 and 2400 version) has never been painted black wrinkle.
For Dino 206GT should apply the same rule of FIAT, for the 246GT and GTS have no idea.

This car is a real beast! It's got allot grunt, it feels like a refined muscle car, nothing like I have ever experienced before... I love it

Looks fantastic especially with those campag wheels, just out of interest what BHP did you get on the dyno runs?

Thanks
