  1. *Video added from last visit to Northampton Motorsports For sale, my Westfield SE independent suspension – originally built from kit by previous owner in Summer 1996. I bought the car around 2007 and somewhere in the house I have copious amounts of original paperwork – instructions, registration correspondence, etc. This can be provided for review before sale if necessary. The engine is from a Vauxhall Corsa GSi (1.6 16v, x16xe/ c16xe - the differences between the 2 original engine specs aren't fundamental) currently producing around 184bhp at the flywheel. The induction roar is lovely, beyond that it's utterly ballistic until over 8000, when the dash warning lights indicate change. The car was stripped and rebuilt, completing Q2 2014, since which the car has covered road only miles. The entire car was stripped, the chassis was reinforced with additional tubing, chassis and cage repowdercoated/ repainted, new lightweight bodywork was fitted, new carbon panelling installed (dashboard, tunnel top and sides, rear bulkhead/ front bulkhead), new racing battery, new lightweight seats, engine bay undertray were fitted. In 2018, car spent time at Westfield factory undergoing factory service, exhaust repack and headlight change. Selling because I just don't use it enough and it's time to move on. It weighs 509.5kg, corner weights are unavailable. Here’s the techie bit: - Steering Cat Motorsport quick rack – 2.2 ratio, reduced to 1.9 with lock stops EN3B steering column with no steering lock / ignition barrel Racetech quick release boss/ suede steering wheel Suspension Front AVO adjustable dampers (steel) with spherical bearings 9” springs – 275lbs Cortina cast iron uprights (powder coated) Cat Motorsport aluminium hubs Poly bushed lower & upper wishbones for fine tuning camber and castor angles Fittings for Playskool bespoked front ARB (unmounterd Playskool front ARB will be included in sale price) Rear AVO adjustable dampers (steel) with spherical bearings 10” springs – 180lbs Poly bushed upper and lower wishbones Westfield cast aluminium uprights Westfield modified Ford Sierra driveshafts Fittings for Playskool bespoked rear ARB (unmounted Playskool rear ARB will be included in sale price) Brakes Front Fluke Motorsport lightweight discs Outlaw M-16 4 pot aluminium calipers Hawk HP Plus brake pads Aeroquip steel braided brake lines Rear Fluke Motorsport lightweight discs Sierra 4x4 calipers Red Stuff brake pads General AP large bore master cylinder (13/16” bore) Aeroquip steel braided hose throughout the car – no solid pipes Brake bias controlled by floor mounted pedal set Engine : 1600cc 16 valve Vauxhall Ecotec engine Bottom end balanced Standard crank Steel con rods Forged “high top” pistons Lightened/ balanced flywheel Helix uprated clutch cover Helix sprung paddle clutch Cable clutch release mechanism Inlet camshaft – 11mm Lift 278 degrees duration Exhaust camshaft – 11.4mm Lift 284 degrees duration Vernier cam pulleys Standard valves (individually hand lapped and sealed) Uprated valve springs (head machined for valve spring and cam clearance) Titanium valve caps Uprated hydraulic cam followers Uprated steel cambelt pulleys Oil system SBD/ Pace dry sump system – sealed type, engine breathers have been removed/ sealed Slim Jim oil pump Low profile cast aluminium sump pan with dual scavenges (filtered) Crank pulley dowel-pinned to crank to prevent slippage Risbridger Cool-tec aerospace spec oil filter SBD dry sump tank Motec aluminium oil catch tank Fuel system Westfield fuel injection type tank Pre-pump filter (push on fittings) High pressure fuel pump Pre-injector fuel filter (-6 fittings) Jenvey fuel rail 45mm Jenvey individual throttle bodies Jenvey intake manifold (matched to throttle bodies and head) Bosch cream injectors Billet aluminium fuel pressure regulator Aeroquip FC322 hose used throughout Aeroquip / Speedflow -6 push-on type aluminium fittings used throughout ITG foam air filter MBE 967 ECU and custom loom, running wide-band, closed-loop lambda control and barometric pressure sensor.

Pictures are a couple of years old, the only additions have been "wing" mirrors and a wide angle Longacre central mirror on the cage. The only other change is that trailing edge of bonnet on drivers side has had a chip repaired (so now it's as good as new). Price is £12,000. Breaks my heart to say this, but you could strip and sell for more if that is your wish. Am located in Derby. Call/ text me on 07968 184107, email me on peter.cox@heavenlyz.com (Boardroom PM will not be best way to get hold of me). Test drivers will need to prove fully comprehensive insurance on this car. Apologies to those who were interested last year, am unsure of your contact details. This advert edited 7th January 2019, so comments below - if different - are superseded by details above.

    Vauxhall X22XE crank and block (for C23XE conversion!)

    A change of plan and going Honda power means that I'm no longer going to build the hybrid "C23XE" engine I'd originally planned to replace the current C20XE with. For those that don't know, the nnXE family of Vauxhall engines from thy late eighties through to the nineties contained many common parts, and so have a degree of interchangeability. The C23XE is (very loosely) a combination of the excellent Cosworth original design 16 Valve cylinder head from the classic C20XE along with low line wet sump - or I'd planned to use my existing dry sump. With an X22XE block and crank. This is the 2.2 litre block used in the nineties in early Fronteras and Sintras, it can be bored out to take C20XE 88mm pistons, and thus becomes a 2.3 litre engine! For sale here is the incredibly rare now X22XE block and crank. (Note this is a proper XE, not the later, less desirable balancer shaft equipped ZE). The block has had all oil way bungs and core plugs removed and been cleaned up. The block itself has been de-seemed and de-bossed. Retaining only rear wheel drive engine mounts, off side alternator mounts, and near side dry sump mounts, the front lower nearside corner of the block has also been clearanced to allow fitment of a Pace DS pump. (Though will happily take a wet sump still). It's then been painted, jobs on the block still to do were boring out to 88mm and I was going to get it decked to tidy it up. The crank has simply been cleaned and had the timing disk removed. (I was undecided on whether to swap to a steel hybrid crank from JRE, this would have allowed me it use my existing flywheel and clutch). The block is collection only I'm afraid, due to the weight. £75 and it's yours! (Took me over a year to find this one...) Some pics:
