    Carbon Half Doors - Omex 600 ECU

    Doors Sold.
  2. Some bits I have left over from my last build. Doors were seconds from Carbon NV - £80 delivered One with some crimping of the fabric around the deepest point of the bulge and the other has an area of surface 'voids' along the rear bottom edge and also the edge where it curves around the wheel arch on the inside. Omex 600 ECU - Its the Telemetry version which is a little more fiddly than normal (you have to load your map to it each time you want to alter the map). - £400 Delivered.
  3. It’s going to be racing with 600bhp Evo’s in the CCRC GT series next year!

    Wanted: Track focused car (Westfield)

    You won’t go round Knockhill faster... https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F113283314537
  5. I was quite amazed too. Getting a 2.0 Duratec to 250bhp isn't too bad. Those extra 50bhp really cost you a lot.

    Binky, Binky, Binky!

    The MG loom would work great in a Westie. Might steal that idea.
  7. You should see the invoices, its enough to make you weep. The bill from Arrow for just the crank and the rods was over £5k before vat!

  9. When I had an actual MX-5 Turbo I ran with open diffs, they WERE a consumable!
  10. Well Bens or the BEC on racecars direct are a fine bet then. Both will sorted. Or build your own for track work. That’s the best bit. It’s why I’ve done 5 now.
  11. Paul’s a good guy. Made me loads of bits. Not sure on the love of the ECO Boost unit, the Mazda cars are just as good really with more parts and less faf. I’d go for Bens over a home brew eco boost. Turbo 7’s are a dirty word though.
  12. Like I said bolt one on. 30 min job with 2 people. Yes youll have to drill the chassis just like Westfield would.
  13. The cage just bolts onto the chassis?
