  1. I have a US car, but the emissions air pump has been removed at some point in the past, so the diagrams I have are not particularly useful. I want to make sure everything is hooked up correctly, and I think the best thing is for me to replicate the UK car. I have the Service Parts manual, but it only has the USA Turbo Carb diagram (43.03A), but if someone has the UK version, could they share it? Thanks!
  2. I just got my full exhaust without cat and it was $97.08 for customs. I wonder if location has anything to do with it. Just be lucky, we didn't have to pay VAT which is 20%.

  4. I just hopped back here to see the status of things and noticed a lot of movement, so I sent a message to anita maybe an hour before the above post. So hopefully that number is now down to 8 outstanding members.

  6. Any chance you'll be doing Esprits (especially early cars)?
  7. Any chance we could see some photos of these in the car (especially the g-car)? I'm interested in how the exhaust fits around the rear axle as well as general clearances, etc.

  9. Count me in for a g-esprit manifold and back, no cat, shipped to Berlin, CT, USA
  10. I did a quick search through the forums and didn't find anything specific to the problem I'm having. Quick backstory: Pulled the engine 8 years ago, got everything back together this summer. Got the car started for the first time last weekend. I have some play in the clutch pedal (the first 1/4 or so there isn't any resistance), and I can't actually engage a gear with the clutch pedal all the way to the floor. I got my fingers down and I can push the rod that engages the clutch a bit. Seems that the master and slave are probably ok. It looks like the adjustment nut is in the right po
  11. Not mine, but I thought someone out there might be interested. If it were on the East Coast I'd buy it and do something with it, but alas it's not worth dragging 3000 miles.
  12. If you had an exhaust leak around the plunger it could be the cause, it's certainly the most obvious place I'd start looking. If you have enough revs to get up to 3-4k RPM, you shouldn't have a problem with boost regardless of timing or fuel delivery, they are totally separate (not that I'm an expert). Stock boost is .55bar/8psi.
  13. I hate to ask the obvious question, but are you sure it's not a wastegate issue?
