Hello TBD, I went to the Supercar experience twice but unfortunately I was not available this year... Any car crashed in 2018? Last year 2 Lotus have been crashed due to the cold weather and frozen road....

No crashes! The only casualty was an Audi, which lost gearbox oil.

If you have the choice between a Stairway to Heaven and a Highway to Hell don't forget the Nomex®!

Thread bump. 

Ex 460 questions..

Does the body of the Exige need to be ground away near the supercharger pulley to make space for the cooler?

And a more general question to Ex 460 owners..... 

"How many miles have you racked up on the car (track and road) and what issues have you had if any?"

 

cheers

The body does not need cutting near the supercharger pulley - that only happens when you have the charge cooled TVS1900

I think Daniel's car has over 20,000 kms of road and track miles now, not sure of issues if any.

@Mark030358 the only issue to which isn't an issue as should be done as part of the upgrade to 460, is the clutch, assuming this is done then you should be okay. I've heard of one gearbox failure on a 460 but this car was 100% track car and heavily heavily used, so not the standard. All in all done correctly the 460 kit is excellent and im now massively jealous of your future upgrade 😭

No changes on the body for the EX460

I am still below 10.000km with mine. Only one issues so far that was linked to the EX460 - had a leaking cooler fluid coming from the charge cooling cycle. Took quite some time to find the leak but since then nothing else ... 

Still on the first clutch and gearbox ... but I have a gearbox cooler.

Wonder what the KT 460 curves will look like with this lot fitted... 😱😱😱

Will have a dyno run before any work, and two runs after, one with standard box pig snout and one with the 2bular ..... 

cheers

Power is primarily the product of burning the volumes (hence intake pressure matters) of air-fuel mix (hence fuel maps matter) at the right moment in time (hence ignition maps matter). Unless the maps are more suitable to one of the two physical setups (resulting in one of the two knocking and adjusting to the observed conditions), there should be no objective difference in power.

Of course, the above is an oversimplified description, however it still is correct.

You'd be running a map that is optimised for other hardware, so all bets are off.

Custom map if needs be....

Lost for words 😢😢😢😢

Sounds like 2bular is a naughty word here ?????

Jim’s work is excellent and used by many. There are quite a few on full 2bular systems and seem ok. I think that H111s comment is more based on the theoretical unknown of using Jim’s hardware and komotecs hardware/software.

This. The KT kit is developed as a kit. Nothing to prevent you deviating from that, but would be deviating from it. Like making a Delia recipe and using different ingredients.
