Giugiaro & Stevens Esprit Turbo 321 Stainless Steel Manifold Group Buy


Recommended Posts

So the Alunox weight of 6 KG includes all the above. I was wondering if the weight Zig quoted included the waste gate, etc or if it was the manifold only. That might add another 2-3 Kg to the weight savings.

Also, the stainless steel systems should cool down a lot quicker than their cast iron counterparts, correct?

I just received my invoice and I have a question. Is the total amount due in USD or is that the total in british pounds???

My invoice did not have a currency indicator either, so my bank assumed it was USD (which was wrong and ended up costing me more $$ and a phone call to Anita this morning). It is in GBP.

Wow!  What an absolute pleasure it was speaking with Anita!  I sure wish we had a gal like that at our shop.

FYI- I just emailed Anita about an estimated shipping date and got this reply:

I have just popped down to the workshop to ask Leon about the latest update on the delivery.  He will be fixing the parts together to make sure they all fit perfectly probably towards the end of next week  and then will need to spend a week checking the quality so estimates that it will still be about three weeks before they leave here.  Once they leave here it should just take a couple of days to get to you.....we are really sorry but if a jobs worth doing, it’s worth doing well!

 

Assuring you of our best attention at all times.

 

Kind regards

 

Anita

 

Looks like I won't be getting my car back till the end of Sept instead of the first. I'm frustrated with all the delays but don't want to rush them in any way- quality craftsmanship takes time.

Hi Guys,

            Going back to the Wastegate pressure settings, The Turbosmart comes with two spring options which determine the pressure when the it is going to open

The Standard G Car settings from the manual are

Maximum Boost Pressure Std - 0.55 bar (8.0 PSI)

                                          HC - 0.65 bar (9.5 PSI)

Turbosmart have matched these to the following as a direct replacement :

                                         Std 7 PSI

                                        HC 10 PSI

You will need to specify which one to Anita that you require so she can order the correct spring . Turbosmart have also said the wastegate is also compatible with boost controllers for those of you who want to make it adjustable.

Mark
