2174CC chargecooled turbo standard 300BHP.
Split rim 18" alloys
Wide arch extensions
Rear Spoiler





Upgrades so far:-
Dump Valve
K&N Filter
Big disc upgrade from 286mm to 323mm slotted and allen bolted to look like bells on Brembo calipers.





Upgrades in future:-
330BHP superchip
Blueflame twin exit exhaust (mongoose)
Polished alloys
Carbon Fibre sunroof see pics of the ones I make
2002 rear round light conversion.
Adjustable Suspension.

Here's a few pics



I know these cars shouldn't really be modified but I like to put my own mark on my cars.

Well not really. Got a guy in St.Helens to take a mould off my glass roof. He made two moulds then bonded them together. They make bodykits and rally equipment for International rally teams, Citreon and Renault direct rally teams, Porsche GT2 race series etc. They also import bodykits for all the japs cars as well. If anyone is after a bodykit, bucket seat or light pod set for their car, they will be able to supply you. They are the manufacturer and not a middle man or retailer so it saves you a ****load of money as well.
I might put a post about their details on another thread.

Thanks for the good comments. I used to have a 1990 Esprit carb turbo in Yellow for the past two years. I did quite a lot to this but sadly it had to go. Even managed to take it on the track just before I sold it. Best time I've had in a car! It cost 90 all day open pit in Anglesey and you got 20 min tuition.
Here's a list of mods on my previous car along with a pic:-
S4 alloys
Hi-Spec 4 pot front brake kit with slotted rotors and stainless steel braided hoses
Staitec adjustable dump valve
Forge race actuator to raise boost from 0.65 to 0.9Bar
ERL Aquamist Water injection kit
Carbon Fibre Sunroof
Genuine GT3 bucket seats with colour coded backs
lowered suspension
Stainless steel sports exhaust
SE/S300 front and rear bumpers
Clear front and side indicators
K&N filter
V8 rear spoiler
25mm wheel spacers all round

I have been since I was a kid watching James bond movies. When we meet up, will take you out for a spin in it if you want?
I hopefully off today or tommorrow to buy some old scrappers (Lotus Elites). The seller owns a Lambougini Gallardo? in Crome Orange. I'll try and blag a drive in this and take some pics. If I do, will post on here.

Sometimes modding can go wrong! Well it's all about individual taste. Personally there are some features I like but IMO it looks a bit tacky.

Nic car, and it's nice to see everybody isn't going with Japanese.

On the subject of CF, I'm looking for a bonnet, straight copy, no fancy vents. Could you get a round-abouts price?

Thanks for the kind words. The yellow one I had modified. Although it was on carbs and standard was 225BHP at 0.65BAR. I added water injection and a forge race actuctor and ran a boost of 0.9-1BAR = approx 280-290 BHP. In the end decided to go for an injection ECU Esprit with a chargecooler. The chargecoolers work in a similar way to intercoolers but are more effecient.
Hopefully when I come to the next meet you can have a look around. Iam just waiting for my application to see if Iam accepted.
