  1. After much sole searching over the last few months I have reluctantly decided to put up for sale my Westfield. Simply the only motivation behind the sale is that I don't use it anywhere near enough and with my daughter being 17 months old I want to spend all my spare time with her and my wife which means the car will end up going to waste and I can't have cash tied up in something I don't use enough. I've had this car since November 2017, it's truly a well built car with an engine and gearbox that are superbly matched to give a superb drive and exhilarating performance on road but especially on track days. Since completing its rebuild in June last year I used it once on a run out with a fellow member for 75 miles and drove it to the club track day at Blyton mid July where I did three short sessions on track. This car is a very fast track tool and is fairly well known by members of the Westfield Club. In the right hands it would be blisteringly quick! When I bought the car I wanted to use it on track and I wanted the confidence that it wasn't going to break down on me. I therefore set about rebuilding as much of it as I could afford. The front end was completely stripped and the chassis prepared and repainted. The top elements of the rear end received the same treatment although I have not yet gotten round to doing the lower elements of the rear side. During this time I renewed the wiring for the instruments, replaced the instruments, the engine was rebuilt by its original builder Ash Mason (ARM on this forum) who needs no introduction. Whilst rebuilding the engine we converted to dry sump, upgraded the pulley system, had the injectors cleaned and inspected, new ITB's, new ECU, new alternator, new oil cooler and thermostat, new gauge sensors, new coolant pipework. No expense was spared. The braking system had a new upgraded master cylinder, new HiSpec bigger brake conversion kit on the front and some of the pipes were replaced. The hubs were replaced with refurbished ones. The front top and bottom ball joints are new as are the bushes at the front. The geometry has been set late in 2018. The tyres were replaced and the carbon side wings and cycle arches are new. Theres a new lightweight battery, new kill switch and the engine ECU wiring harness has been tidied up at the same time by Luke at Playskool. After the engine rebuild the car was remapped to ensure all was okay. It had previously had a tweak to make it a better road mannered car and was running 224bhp. The remap saw it making 242bhp and 180lbft although Ric Wood stated that it would benefit from a new ECU as the old one was limiting ability to properly control things. The ECU was sent to DTA for testing who confirmed it wasn't working as expected and a new unit would be beneficial although not essential. I opted for a new S40 unit from DTA and at the same time I decided to go for brand new Jenvey ITBs as I was having trouble with the spindles on the existing ones. Following the new ITBs and ECU I had to have the car remapped. This was undertaken by Ric Wood again on the Friday before Xmas just gone. The car now delivers 265bhp and 193lbft. I have all the original dyno charts from its first build (242bhp) its tweaked map (224bhp) the remap after the rebuild (242bhp) and the final map with the new ECU and ITBs (265bhp). The main reason for the big hike in power is likely that the mapping after the rebuild was done this summer in 34 degree heat whereas the last was done in the winter when it was about 6 degrees. I have a large folder of receipts and paperwork for the car as well as all but one of it's MOT certs. It’s mot runs out June 2019. The receipts and info go back to the original build of the car and include all receipts for several thousand pounds I have spent one rebuilding things over the last year. I am the fourth owner. The car was SVA'd in 2002. Mileage since being built is c. 42K miles although since the rebuild it’s done less than 300 miles. The gearbox was out in 2016 checked over by a specialist and at the same time a Playskool roll cage was added. Below is listed the parts that make this car what it is.... ENGINE 2002 Westfield SEiW 2ltr red top. Fully stripped and refreshed Feb-May 2018 by Ash Mason (ARM on this forum and Vauxhall XE guru). 265bhp @ 7,676rpm Vauxhall XE engine. I have set rev limit to 7,200rpm as it’s plenty fast enough and will give ultimate reliability at those revs - to change this is simple with a laptop and I can supply one with the car if necessary. The engine is built to take 8,200rpm so a cam swap and remap could release more but would be less reliable obviously if revving higher. 193 lb/ft torque @ 6,262rpm Standard Crank Uprated ACL bearings Steel conrods with ARP L19 bolts Omega High Intruder pistons Standard Valves Titanuim valve caps Piper double valve springs Heavy duty spring seats QED 450 Camshafts Vernier Pulleys (new 2018) Arrow solid lifters Dry sump system (new 2018) DTA S40 ECU (new 2018) DTA wiring and connectors to connect ECU to laptop (new 2018) Jenvey TB’s (new 2018) Ramair filter (new 2018) Bosch 803 injectors (fully cleaned, checked and tested by Blink Motorsport 2018 with print out of results) SBD heavy duty idler kit and cam belt (new 2018) SBD fixed cam belt tensioner (new 2018) ARP heavy duty flywheel bolts (new 2018) All bolts and gaskets renewed 2018 All bearings etc new 2018 Engine stripped and rebuilt replacing anything necessary 2018 External crank trigger wheel to eliminate weakness with internal ones which can break up at revs (new 2018) New crank sensor 2018 New throttle potentiometer and wiring loom 2018 New Denso lightweight alternator 2018 New coolant hoses 2018 New oil and water sensors 2018 New water pump from SBD 2018 All new external bolts for rocker and all ancillaries 2018 Large Setrag oil cooler and thermostat (new 2018) Nylon solid engine mounts (new 2018) EXHAUST Simpson Race Exhaust Re-packable (redone feb 2018 with acoustafil) Bonnet exit GEARBOX BGH Geartech heavy duty type 9 with long 1st, (rebuilt 2016 receipts available) Helix heavy duty organic clutch plate / cover (replaced 2016) FINAL DRIVE Sierra viscous LSD. 3.92 COOLING Radtec Alloy rad ..................

  2. Hi Guys and Girls, Long time lurker, first time poster... I am looking to purchase a car as soon as the right one comes available. Friend of mine is on here & recommend I post to see what might be around. Spec I am looking for is as follows, hoping that there might be some based in the south somewhere? Every car I have liked is in Manchester or Scotland. I live near Reading. Engine: 2.0 Blacktop or similar (circa 200HP ideally) or Hayabusa style Bike engine (I want a decent amount of torque so 1ltr bike engines are a no). Diff: Must have a LSD. Cage: Nice to be fully caged but not the end of the world if not V8 Bonnet is a must unless its the new shape body. Windshield would be nice, but I can work around that if needed. Seats and belts: Not too bothered as long as they are suitable for both. Need at least 4 point harnesses please. Nice to have a Digi dash too, but not imperative. I'm looking for a well sorted car, good condition and suitable for both road and track use (70/30 split in that order). I've got a max budget of £14k. Thanks in advance everyone
  3. I've decided to sell my Westfield which I have owned from the time I built it, registered in 2001. This is an ideal road car in immaculate condition. I am planning to retain the number plate. The engine was completely rebuilt using an older and mature block. This enables the car to run without Cats and MOTs without a problem. This car will be sold with a new MOT as it currently expires at end of May 2017. The engine was built and tuned by a V8 specialist (Progress Engineering in Maidstone). R380 gearbox (new when fitted) Heavy duty clutch LSD Diff (Westfield supplied) Moroso electric water pump Immobiliser Rev limiter Toyo R1R tyres 205/15 (almost new) New Protech shock absorbers fitted Wrapped stainless steel headers and stainless steel underslung exhaust (Westfield supplied) Tonneau cover with zip for half cover if wanted Removable side screens Full weather gear - Hood and frame Spare wheel and carrier included but not currently fitted. Various spare parts, Manual and many receipts and info folder If not sold this car will be at Stoneleigh on Monday 1st May Car is based in Letchworth, Herts. Contact Ron 07885 524495 Price: £14750 ono
  4. After 3 years of fun, I am looking at moving into Tin Top racing so my Westfield is going up for sale. It's a fantastic car, and is the perfect road / occasional track day car in its current spec and could be taken either way to make an out and out track car, or an even better road car. So the car: Westfield SEiW registered on 1998 on an R plate, wide body with V8 ducted nose cone and vented bonnet. 2.0 Vauxhall XE Red Top with oil pump, hydraulic tappets, plugs and a Varley red top 30 battery fitted within the last few years. Fully serviced with oils and fluids over the winter, also garaged over winter. It runs on MBE Engine Management with tapered throttle bodies giving 197bhp on a rolling road. Gearbox is a Type 9 close ratio straight cut competition box with short quick shift. Paddle type clutch Sierra Limited Slip Differential Front brakes are Wilwood 4 pots with solid discs, rears are Sierra disks. Braided brake hoses Gaz adjustable suspension 2.4 Steering Rack 13 inch Compomotive alloys Carbon fibre effect rear arch protectors and rear lights Carbon fibre exhaust Playskool Half Cage Willians Harnesses Momo steering wheel Recently fitted with an upgraded Coolex radiator with new fan Cooling override switch (never had any overheating problems but the switch was already fitted and I upgraded the radiator for more track work) AP Racing Brake Master Cylinder (took me almost a year to get hold of one of these to fit! Rocking horse s*** springs to mind!) Heater Full leather dash and carpets Immobiliser Hamilton car cover (with slight tear) Side doors and soft bits for sevens tonneau cover The car has been fully set up with geo and corner weights by Northampton Motorsports MOT until September 17 As you can see, it is a great spec car. I have spent thousands on this car and it is in fantastic condition, I have stacks of history and receipts too. I have loved owning it and hope the next person does too. I just want to try my hand a bit more seriously on track! I am in no rush to sell so please no silly offers. Car is based in Leamington Spa. Contact 07429155373. Price: £11,500
