  2. Must have been bladdered if he couldn't manage the brake test in an Evora. I'd liked to have seen him try reversing into a parking space. Even sober it's not for the faint-hearted!

  3. This is the type of unit I now have. You can compress the spring on the car http://www.ebay.com/itm/MacPherson-Interchangable-Fork-Strut-Coil-Spring-Compressor-Extractor-Tool-Set-/271342759927

  4. You'll need to put spring compressors on the springs to get them off the car. I jack up and put a stand under, remove the wheel and then jack up the lower wishbone until the car just about rises off the stand. Then fit the spring compressors...one set will be wider than the other......tighten them until they bite, then lower the car on to the stand again. Keep winding away on the spring compressors until they have the load and the spring is loose...then you can undo the lower damper bolt and split the suspension top from bottom, undo the top of the damper and the damper and spring can be withdrawn. Whilst your at it, change the anti roll bar bushes for poly, too...makes a significant difference. The two spring compressors have to be opposite each other on the spring, or as nearly as possible...and tighten them up alternately, keeping them both tight all the time, otherwise they can twist sideways or even fall off. As ever, one has to be very careful....

  6. First I want to say thanks for all the help and advice you guys have given me during this ordeal. I will try to pay it forward with what I have learned. She lives! The mechanic that built the motor was thoroughly embarrassed and apologetic and drove 3 hours first thing this morning and swapped the cam gears. It started right up after that, idles great, and has great oil pressure. I went for about a 30 min drive, filled it up with gas and just got back home. No leaks, no smoke and a great running engine. The green dot cams make a huge difference. So much more throttle response off idle and off boost. It is especially noticeable pulling away from stop lights etc. The upgrade I did on the shifter rose joints make an unbelievable difference to the shift feel. So smooth! It has been a long, stressful and expensive endeavor but when I backed out of the driveway it was all worth it. Every bit. I also have my garage back! One issue I am having is the water temp gauge gets into the red when idling awhile. As soon as I start moving or turn on the fans (with the AC or Espritmon), it goes right down. Espritmon and Freescan show the coolant temp being fine (85-87) when the gauge shows 100-110. I unplug the wire going to the gauge sensor (on the thermostat housing) and the gauge responds so I know that is the sensor with the issue. I am wondering if I have air trapped there causing the issue. I will let it cool and then check the coolant level again. A quick search didn't show any other threads with similar issues so unless you guys have any ideas off the top of your heads, I will open a thread in the correct location later if I can't get it sorted. Thanks again.
