  1. Completely forgot about this post. Car has been off the road since I split the cats as I managed to screw the engine at the same time. Only getting around to fixing it now.

    Has anyone else has problems with Larini cats ? I've yet to see how my modified units work, but I'll find out in a couple of months when I get the car back on the road.

    I've uploaded the images anyway....

  2. Mike,

    Thanks for your comprehensive reply. Very helpful.

    I have a UK source looking into JE Pistons so I will see what they come up with and compare with JAE.

    I have also spoken to Omega who can make some up, but the minimum order is 12 but I suppose I can sell the additional 4. Have you heard of them ?

    I will be ordering a piston/liner set from SJ Sportscars so quite happy to offload the pistons if you want.



  3. Has anyone else had an issue with Larini's cats ? I managed to split one in two last week when taking my Esprit for a test drive after having dump valves fitted.

    Luckily Larini have a lifetime warranty and sent a courier to pick them up. The problem would seem to be that the engine jumps around a lot and there is no give. David at Larini is building in a flexi section to allow for this movement. I'll see what they are like once I get them fitted.

    I was just wondering if anyone else has had this problem.

  4. I am thinking about replacing the injectors with RC Engineering ones on my V8 due to warm start problems.

    Can anyone advise on the correct RC injector to use ? Would it be the SL4-270, with the following spec

    Type Saturated

    Flow Rate 270cc / MIN @ 43.5 PSI

    26 LBS / HR @ 43.5.PSI

    Resist 12.5 Ohms @ 68 F

    Voltage 8 - 15 Volts, nominal 13.5 Volts

    Amps 1.0 Amps

    Pressure Min 30 PSIG / Max 100 PSIG

    Would the replacements for the primary injectors be the PL2-370, with the following spec

    Type Peak & Hold

    Flow Rate 370cc / MIN @ 43.5 PSI

    35 LBS / HR @ 43.5.PSI

    Resist 2.5 Ohms @ 68 F

    Voltage 8 - 15 Volts, nominal 13.5 Volts

    Amps Peak 4.0 Amps / Hold 1.5 Amps

    Pressure Min 30 PSIG / Max 100 PSIG

    Car is a 2000 V8-GT fitted with Marcus' RED Race ECU, reflowed turbos, with Larini CATS / Exhaust.

    Any help would be appreciated.
