  1. Sounds like a good idea, I can possibly make the July one but not the August meet as I'm on the club lotus stand at Bealieu supercar showdown. Weekends are generally better for me and I'm always up for a meet to see new faces etc To throw another venue in the mix could be the West Meon Hut (A32 / A272 crossover) There's quite often meets around here and theres a biker café across the road so always lots going on and something different to see. The West Meon Hut is not far from the Flower pot pub suggested so is quite central for those in Hampshire. I know of another member whos
  2. Hi there, OK so Ive been a member now for many years but have never actually introduced myself. So here goes... My name is Luke and I come from Gosport in the South of England. I have a 1985 Esprit Turbo which Ive owed for 7 years now and have a little interesting sory to tell. Many of you I'm sure are familiar with Classic cars magazine, some of which may subscribe to it. Well it so happens that a recent feature of theirs is that a reader can drive their dream car. All you have to do is email them with your top ten cars you would like to drive and give your clasic car CV. If y

  7. I know of someone who had rebuilt a rover v8 and after running the engine in he found the engine to be sluggish. He actually put a can of restore into the engine and it completely transformed the engine for him. He may not have checked compression on the cylinders etc when completing the rebuild and therefore restore worked. I have a friend who posted a similar question on a bmw forum but did not get any responses. I'm guessing its not overly popular in britain compared to maybe the us market. Regards,
  8. Hi there, Has anyone heard of a product called Restore, by a company called Ametech It is an engine restore product added to the oil containing micro particles designed to fill and seal cylinder walls such as scratches etc resulting in improved compression, fuel economy, BHP and generally smoother running of the engine. This company states big claims as to its ability and i'm just wondering whether anyone has used this product and whether they have had any improved results (or adverse ones) thanks, Luke
  9. Hi Mark, I saw your car in sportomotive last August as mine was in there for cam gasket replacement etc, and like yours mines got a small exhaust leak which you can hear on the over run. I had some concerning issues regarding knocking noises on the overrun as well as the exhaust leak which i will need to sort out sooner rather than later which is either main bearings or big end (until it is investigated i wont know for sure) but very much a result of an after market adjuster put on the turbo by the previous owner, causing it to overboost (also a reason for bringing the car in for service
  10. Many thanks, i will take this into account
  11. Hi, I was wondering if anyone could help me diagnose the problem with my engine, symptons are as follows: * there is a rasping / popping sound from the exhaust (on the overun only) when the engine has warmed up * The engine is eating the spark plugs (i have changed them twice now in the last 6 months and only covered about 600 miles), when i took the spark plugs out last weekend they were burn't out and after replacing them i fired the car up only to find a big cloud of smoke from the exhaust, it settled after a half a minute but was still smoking when throttling up. * when taking the
