    Throttle Bodies

    Hi all Thanks for opinions, advice and tips. On the cold air intake point I've found that Pipercross do a ducted air box that fits a P600 backplate. If I can get it to fit with decent trumpets I might be able to get away with not cutting the bonnet and still fix the ducting to pick up cold air - sounds like some measuring and in the best tradition of the project Binky boys some CAD coming up. Thanks again. Gary

    Throttle Bodies

    My sigma engined car is currently running on what I believe is the standard throttle body and manifold, for light car it has decent power, 142 bhp when last mapped at Northampton Motorsport. I’m thinking of upgrading to multiple throttle bodies, either the DanST Engineering GSXR starter kit [we’ve got them on our family project car], or as they are relatively local to me - Jenvey direct to head throttle bodies. I’ve found a tuner who still has a working dongle to remap the Alpha ecu, so that shouldn’t be an issue. I know about balancing the length of induction/trumpets etc, but just because I do I want to avoid making a bonnet cut out if I can. Have any of you managed multiple throttle body installations without a bonnet cut out? If so what did you use? Gary

    Drive belt supplier

    The dayco code is usually the number of ribs [pk] followed by the length of the belt you need, e.g. 6pk1203. I used my local motorfactor to source the belt I needed from the code on the old belt. Gary

    Another MOT question. Q Reg

    I use my local independent garage and have an "accompanied" MOT for both our family Westfelds. The bonnet comes off every time, the formal chassis number check is done, brakes tested, the emissions (visual check for the Q plate) then the car is gone over with me present and the tester talking me through the test. It is really helpful to be present, I've picked up loads of tips. The tester and garage owner Paul has built kits and his own rally cars, he's currently doing a Ford Anglia special, so I have loads of faith in his opinion, advice and judgement. The other testers do the family tin tops and yes the bonnet comes up on them too. Gary

    Replacement tin-top suggestions

    Octavia vrs. On my second, this one is a petrol estate goes well with loads of space for kit; previous one was a diesel hatchback, also went well, with decent space. Both serviced by local independent warranty work honoured FOC by Skoda (fuel rail recall on the diesel). Gary
  9. Hi There are lots of posts about POR15 on the forums. I don't know if it will be any use to anyone, but my Frost Restoration round-robin email today says they have offers on POR15 this weekend. https://www.frost.co.uk/brands/por15.html Gary

    Age of Westfield Model

    We have 2 westfields in the family. The 2005 car has the chassis number stamped on the drivers side engine bay diagonal, the 1998 car has the chassis number stamped on the box section bottom cross member at the front of the chassis. You might find a chassis number in either of those places. Gary

    Soft Bits for Sevens Touring Tunnel bag.

    Hi Dave I've measured it pouch to pouch fitted in my car. On my tunnel bag measurement A is 28cm and measurement B is 21cm. I've got it set up so that the drivers side pouch runs level with the top of the tunnel at each end. The top of the passenger pouch sits 2.5 cm down from the top of the tunnel at each end. The tunnel is carpeted and the car is a 2005 SEIW. Reading your comment about the shower cap - I've got a half hood and a shower cap, the combination works a treat. I hope that helps. Gary
