  1. Here's your complete Esprit HID install guide:
  2. Hi where are the V8 air filters, and how do I access them? Thanks, Will
  3. Can someone please advise on the difference in sound between a rattling cat vs. a rattling heat shield on a V8? Better yet, can someone please post a picture of heat shields on a V8, so I know where they are? I have a rattling sound -- sounds like marbles in a can -- and I'm thinking it's the $$$ cat that needs to be replaced. I'm going for aftermarket high-flow cats. But I don't want to spend the money if it's just the heat shields. Thanks in advance!
  4. Sewing machine, huh? Hmmm...why stop there? Hehe
  5. Also check your front body-to-chassis mounts.
  6. Slight variation of the topic, but what do K&N's sound like when gunning it in the V8? Can you hear it being different than the stock air filters?
  7. I've learned to live with driving the car with the doors unlocked at all times. Lives of car jackers targeting Esprits just got easier.
  8. "They all do that, Sir." Additionally, I've noticed that when my car is crawling in 1st gear (vehicle moving slowly, with 1st engaged, and feet off all pedals), and I suddenly push down the clutch pedal, the engine revs up to 1100-1200 for a second or two before coming back down to around 900.
  9. Should the transmission oil of a V8 be changed based on mileage or time or both? If so, what increments/how often? Thanks, Will
  10. There's a complete set of Esprit V8 AP brakes (rotors + caliper + pads) on eBay right now. Could be the deal of the century:
  11. CD changers are so 90's... :-) MP3s in HDDs -- right in the receiver (looks nicer and takes up no additional space).
  12. baby wipes. does wonders. gentle enough for a baby's bottom, good enough for your rims.
  13. Guys, a couple of questions to run past you: Do you think the current Hyper-Flow design is susceptible to such splitting? Also, if the stock cats had no give, why was it able to hold out with the engine movements without splitting? I'm very interested in this topic, as both my stock cats are rattling.
  14. Come join us for an afternoon of cool cars, great food, and summer fun! Where: Synaptic3 Engineering
  15. A quick question on catalytic converters failing for the Esprit V8. Are emission-related components warrantied for a longer period than the standard vehicle warranty? What are my chances of having my cats covered on my
