  1. This is not a for sale banner! I have an unmolested fresh 1000 miles ago turbo and I dont know if I am looking to sell it per se. But hypothetically if someones esprit SH** a brick which they sometimes do. What could I charge for the CHRA along with the induction snail. I wouldnt want to part with the exhaust housing as that is an esprit only component. But you think I could get say 500$ or way less a bit more??? The reason I am saying this is I really want to go with a full ball bearing GTX3071R or a 3076R but They aint cheap.
  2. Ehm if you wait.... possibly a long time I might have something for everyone considering the double din.... How about a whole audio processor and an Ipad, tablet or smart phone with a dvd or blu ray player. I really wish I saw Amplified... ITs a youtube show. Before I cut into my dash. My mods are reversable but I want to point out. With some fabbing you could just pull out the stereo completely and dock your phone instead. The only equipment that would be showing would be the controller for the processor which is much smaller than a stereo. The processor its self can fit under the Stevens das
  3. You know... I might want one of those if your willing to make one. I really want to convert to modern hook for the wiper. I was in high hopes that someone had done it already. Anyone consider a modern blade with a non metallic spine?
  4. Well thanks.... But still I opened mine trap so I gotta move mine hand. I had a really unexpected series of events... One of them is a recently completed carbonfiber dash mask. I am still trying to find a good supplier for decent stainless and I have to get the time to weld up a mini brake. I might end up making a jig and just hand bending them I can see making more than 50 and if I did it would self fund for a proper brake. But still having trouble sourcing what to use for a pivot. If any suggestions... Ahem low tech... please suggest them.
  5. Man I just dont understand you guys at all. Dude I am just telling a story. Who here has driven one? I have I think at leas I know my esprit is the only one ive even seen in the real world... That the Masarati is a much more common car. And why would he be making all that noise and revving up at the light if he wasn't bothering. Also yeah diesels can be tuned for big numbers. but... Expensive cars see tuning less frequently especially new stuff thats under warranty. My old audi v6 soch got big mods because it cost so little. My A8 got a verry nice exhaust and a respray not much more. Why? It
  6. Anyone got a mazerati and want to explain what the heck happened? I usually dont but I was cranky. Also That box is gonna go and I dont really care which way it does one piece or 5. I was fully expecting that terrible horrid sound of exhaust to echo in my ear as he bolted away. FOUND OUT WHY: Ok nevermind... Wow they aint even building them to the same polished turd they had been. 530 h.p. paired to the ZF. I found this as I was writing. That would do it. I bet the car locked into economy mode. Or he had the v6. Those cars arent light and handle like a lowered truk. Uncomfortable st
  7. So I was in the city today grumbeling through traffic when finally I got up front. As I tried to call a friend back I was interrupted by a large "vwoom!" I looked. What the hell is that!? Oh someone stuck mazarati vents on a 350z I thought he had vossens on street strip pirellis. F#ck it. I blipped it and made sure I was in first. I was sweatting bullets because my clutch slipped the day before just driving. I relaxed just before the green and he lurched a bit before I gave it full pedal. Smoked him. He was still coming so I let off and hammered him again. The next light is where I could see h
  8. Thats a nicer schematic. Ok. Sorry to be a bother. I just wanted to be crystal clear because this is my first loom. This is overkill but I want to route it all into a 40 amp 5 pin mil spec round connector. That way its easy to break out for repairs. The large connector is just for durability.
  9. Please revive this for me. I am looking for a pump my self. I need something quite large for a much bigger cooler. It is now darn near 2018 any improvments or price lowered units?
  10. So I looked at lots of wiring diagrams including the esprits and I came up with this conclusion Sorry for double spacing... |@@@|-------->ECM +___|@@@|-------->ECM |@@@|-------->ECM |@@@|-------->ECM A single switched Hot branching to 4 injectors then 4 color coded grounds. Now this isnt for the OEM ECM this is for Aftermarked sequential. If anyone answered my question already sorry. But I doubt this diagram exists as I have been goggling it for three days. Also this here hot is coming from my ecm?
  11. I just talked to the Ceo well I didn't know there are two of em through an email didn't mention a thing trying to get no discount. Around 600 for everything shipped to my door which is far off from his. It would be much cheaper for any stateside users. I think it was 550 for a set of 4. So the ID1050s are the way to go hands down for two reasons. The spray pattern and minimum pulse with is way way wayy better than the old injectors even out of the box. Reason two is duty cycles. I will be hitting 80% on the ID 1050 not running ethanol and I do plan on some ethanol use for track days. The thing
  12. Thanks BTW. Dont hold your breath guys. I still need to buy a brake and its holiday. I will make them. Again if anyone else wants to jump in be my guest. I have an intake doors and soon an ECM job that need to be done in my Esprit. It's all about money and time. I really need help sourcing a pivot point. I still have not found one that is to what I would like to use. I am trying to over engineer them. Also I don't have the drill press. It would all be hand cut that drives up the price and turnaround time. Ill ask my buddy if hes got one. I am pretty sure this batch of orders is just going to c
  13. Thanks man but I hope I dont need any of that I just pulled my audis harness out and that should have all the wire pins and connectors I need to make a like new harness. The wire is super long and in real good shape. However I am considering buying tpfe nickle coated wire for the injection and ignition as well as using mil spec connectors on injection and ignition as I really dont ever want to go lean because of a wire. That being said easy answer is I am making new looms as I dont trust the OEM stuff and I know for a fact the wire quality isnt so good either because of the supplier or because
  14. Pretty much stating what I have been half assing... Sorry guys. I been real real busy. I am finally getting the audi gone this week so the new years project is getting some hinges made for these boys.
  15. IT looks like someone got too excited driving and you know.... Just buy the kit your saying eh? Time to go shopping again. Thanks for the advice brother.
  16. Am I wrong to think I should just strip the whole section and re seal it? I know that the paint is acrylic.
  17. During that video I made how to repair the leather I didnt realize that I got the wrong bottle of cleaner. It took the shine off from the leather and I have been applying lanolin and mink oil to no avail... Wax What is the stuff they use as a clear?
  18. Sorry man I forgot. Also I was double checking. I read your stuff long ago. I'll re read. But none the less Thank you. Your fast answer will help lighten the load and reminds me to read your write up again. Really if you dont mind maybe next year or so I could bind all this info together along with other high power esprits for an Esprit high performance PDF.
  19. Ha ha thought this would be Ozzys 1986 album... Its ok. By the time I get the loom done I should be able to get the ID1050s and the walbro 400
  20. So Lotus suggested this for my ECM upgrade. The guy said we of course cant suggest upgrading the ECM but he understood what I was doing and why. The chagre cooler pump is driven by the ribbed pulley no?
  21. Yeah I did. Are they different on oler models. Btw so heres how I am going to play this. I dont have any machines so its all hand done. I really want to give the best pivot point available. I think a small break and some map gas will be all I need to fab them up. I been looking at fabbing up titanium parts for a long time but I will get my licks in on stainless hinges as a mistake is cheaper also stainless requires no torch. I'll have you guys do paypal through my wife AFTER SOMEONE TESTS THEM FOR A MONTH. That set will be FREE barring shipping. After Ill see how long it takes me to do a
  22. I am not about to shell out 400$ for a part that I will modify so I am looking for a real cheap lower bumper cover off a v8 or S4 ect. the rounded one. My SE one has taken two hits and I dont want to destroy it and I wanted to do this mod down the road anyway. Even one thats in pieces will do as I just need to make a mold.
  23. Yeah Ill be making them for the Stevens first. If the 82-85 modles need hinges then its best to sent a piece in and I would need a test dummy a set could be provided for shipping as its risky installing them first.
  24. Well its 3:10 AM and I finally stumbled across a closed Ebay listing for the hinges which had the pictures I needed. I just need to figure out the pivots. I said I was going to order metal earlier but I got set back so on my payday at the end of the week you can bet your A** I'll be ordering metal. Again if anyone knows a reputable supplier that isnt asking for insane ammounts for metal let me know.
