  1. Upgrade with ARP stud set from JAE, Alunox manifold, EFR turbo, new Bosch or Siemens injectors, new programmable ECU, (EFI, Motec, DTA) 4 separate ignition coils. etc.. should get you to a reliable 300 to 350 hp.
  2. Chassis now in KTL and powdercoated, start of the rolling chassis build up
  3. Yes no problem, idea is to post some nice pictures of the rebuild here. Next update expected in the last week of the year
  4. Hi Grayp, build is still in progress, body is now at the bodyshop for polyester work and painting, the chassis just finished KTL treatment and powdercoating. So I hope to start building again in January.
  5. Shakedown of the updated Esprit GT3 in the Ardennes, New twin scroll turbo system and motormanagement have significantly improved transient, torque and power.
  6. Looking for a Esprit Giugiaro type instrument binnacle, Including or excluding instruments and any quality considered. Regards Jaap
  7. Almost ready for the roll cage, many new parts getting in. started with some cage modeling
  8. Trial fitment of the turbo Some update of the disassembly process
  9. Maybe A06, Bermuda blue. Anyhow please keep it in the color as you have. I think your blue is the best color for the S2
  10. V8 makes 400Nm so I guess the GT3 should be able to cope with it.
  11. Finally some power figures with the new upgrade kit, not so bad at 1.2 bar boost. Still some issues with idle control valve to sort out though.
