Upgrade today to remove Google ads and support TLF.

Factory Frolic was announced to me by email last Friday.

This is too short of a notice for me

Christmas party of LCD is also not possible as I got the car on season plates ending this month. (there's a slight chance I can get dealer's plates from R&B)

Sorry for these news but next year I will be in full swing again with LCD.

Saw Hugo briefly at R & B with his JPS, expressing that he also wishes to see more of me again :devil:

Ok folks

Even though I have no proof yet if we have achieved the goal, I thought she is entitled enough for a bit of decoration :harhar:

If the road dries off this weekend I'll make some runs to see where we stand.

OH, BTW : got a new plate, too :whistle:

Cheers

Stefan

Stefan, what's going on there with your car ?!

Mentioning the *Garrett*-company page you have reduced the performance output from 500HP (still not confirmed on dyno/quartermile..) to something around 375HP now ?

What was turning around -heat problems or reliability issues ?

Com'on ..don't be shy -I could arrange some serious quartermile, track & dyno competitions for you !! :bounce:

To all

Very very sorry for not being on the forum for so long.

Major reason why I have been absent just turned 2

Now to my other hobby

- In the meantime I had purchased a set of Sport 350 rims, had them refurbished and now she wears new shoes

- Car runs like the devil, but still no measurements on the HP, due to heaps of work here at my company.

- I am thankfull for every kilometer I can drive her.

I shall send you some new pics coming monday latest.

Cheers

Stefan

the Esprit is an 'two seater' with legalisation for childseats (according to the owners manual..) -so keep that in mind :thumbsup:

next 'club'-generation is comming

ohh.. and as I see , you havent mentioned that there is an 'power limit' recomendet for youngsters in the drivers seat ?! *500sport* -isn't that way to much for a 2year old boy :harhar:

Sorry Günter, tried my best, but no luck.

Murphy had me in his vice.realmad.gif

Here are some piccies taken today just to keep my promise.

Despite all this disaster, tell me more about your dyno-connections.

here in Berlin I was in studies together with one of the *vogtland-speedmakers* guys ..so it was 'Ladedruck' all the time around :thumbsup:

Same as for 'quartermile'-races and *AMR*-racing (the one with monster VW-Polo Ethanol hybrids..)

If you need competitors, or an dyno with enough power to hold on (the Golf & Polo cars are tuned to the 500HP+ class ) I can ask for support. And events like *Race @ airport* have always an interest for exotic starters with special class level... .

If you prefer the JDM-production leage with Skylines & Supras -just tell me, can connect you on that too :whistle:

Or for the good old German: Opel connections (4x4 Calibras & Opel-speedsters within the 300HP+ range are good in terms of 'power to wheight' ..and the car I would choose for reference [legally anounced as 'der hat nicht mehr als 300PS' -hahaa..] was even good with me as living ballast in the passenger seat.

Thanks for your opportunities, but my days of "OK Corral" are definitely over wine.gif

I have a meeting with R&B next week where we will finally conduct test runs to determine the performance of my engine.

I shall have detailed infos by end of next week.

Of course I will post them here immediately.

Speak soon

Stefan, it wasn't meant -as for 'posing' power competitions !

those guys just understand more if you talking 'fuel talks' as your wife or neighbours... . So it is allways good to compare experience and various plans/concepts.

...what do you want to do instead ?

-dyno/roller

-driving (on street calculation, with OBD/ALD-port & GPS accceleration reference in gear ..and so on)

Günter, i appreciate your offerings and maybe they can be of help in some respect down the line, should I continue to further tune the car.

Stefan

I see your crankcase breather just terminates in a K&N air filter. Do have any probs will oil peeing out all over the inside of your engine bay/drive below? I would worry about oil getting to your rear brakes?

Buddsy

Buddsy, You are perfectly right with what you said. We encountered the same and then decided to connect the crankcase breather through the side wall to my viper induction system again to avoid this.

So to speak my little filter you see is a dummy. We just did not remove it as it was already installed and now it only looks good. smoke.gif

Hello. You have a nice car ;)

I see you have made a custom plate on your chargecooler.

Do you have the old one? I have lost mine :(

Steffen, thanks for your comment on my car. Unfortunately I don't have my old one anymore either as the same happened to me....... I lost it

Ok, here is a first glance of where I stand.

Not quite achieved yet, but very close: 474 PS permanently confirmed with a peak reading in one run of 496 PS !!!

The engine is capable of a lot more, but due to the fact that we have a longstroke engine now, we must be carefull with the piston speed not exceeding a certain value.

The rev limiter is set at 7k (recommendation from Garry Kemp) and I still have my standard 5 speed tranny.

Furthermore we only have adjusted the PUK red race chip in terms of fuel management to a 18% larger displacement.

I am still running the engine on my old 375 / 275 injectors but with a electric fuel pressure pump which works brilliantly.

The EVC external boost controller is set at 1.5 bar (2.5 including ambient pressure)

I am so happy though with the performance of the complete set up and the reliability of this 2.6 l engine at this time, that I am kind of reluctant to do more to it except maybe a

longer ratio 5th gear to reach 300 Km/h + top speed and a diff lock

Comments welcome stuart.gif
