Here's another pic with the exhaust manifolds in place.The throttle bodies are off a motor bike but are very much still under construction, they are a little too tall so will have to be machined down

Hey Jonathan,

You don't have a set of 285+ rear wheels by any chance..?

As a matter of fact..........actually no you can't have my magnesios :)

(they're still in their boxes, when no ones in the house I sometimes get them out and sit in the middle of them making brum brum noises :P )

Dude, I love that spoiler so much I bought one with an attached SE :)

Nice. When did that happen dude? I tried looking for a thread about it, but there's no search option to limit the search to topics started by a member, and (unless it's changed) you can't search for "SE" (or "V8", "S1" etc.) because it's too short.

Hopefully it's not going to be another garden ornament!

That sounds pretty tasty I must say, hope mine is that good.

Once Danny and Jon have got theirs up and running we will have to get the cars together for a meet somewhere.

Hey Punky

I have just been looking at the photos, is it the camera angles or is the engine tilted over to the drivers side slightly ??????

Very impressive video. Your new "Jaguar Esprit" is very very quick, indeed.

The sound of the engine is just perfect. It's more solid than the 4-cylinder Turbo, but not as crazily loud as the V8 version. It sounds just right.

Very Nice, wish I had a tiny bit of the skill you have.
