  2. Hi Daz

    Thanks Daz, as you know Im looking to buy a few bit and am going to see a guys whos got a head with cams all together but I want to make sure they are the right bits to suit a 1985 Turbo. Dont want to get it and find its from annother car etc :crybaby: so looking for any info that I could tell them apart. Also on the cams are they from annother car or were they a lotus made part. I have used Kent Cam & Pipper Cams in an engine I once built are there perfomance cams available for the turbo Esprit or is the standard Bad enough??? Any boy have any thoughts I would be most pleased

I could be talking b******ks but Im sure I didnt dream it and read something along those lines. Maybe Brian would be the man to ask at the next meeting. :rambo:

    Hope I havent confused the issue!!

  5. Simon you know I love your car with black bumpers, I think the argument comes down to are you after a modern looking car or a classic? The reason I love the G cars is for their exotic styling and bold shape so I personally love the black contrast. I have been impressed with some of the body coloured bumpers in this thread Simon350s especially but for me it makes them look a much more modern car. So I think it
