  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 ..................

    MOT Problem Help Please

    Hi, I would really appreciate some help as I've just tried to put the car for an MOT and the guy had to give up on the omission test 1. lambda reading was too high, although HC and C02 where OK 2. engine overheated as the fan didn't cut in 3. engine started to miss-fire I had a problem before with the thermo fan, but I thought I fixed it (poor connections). I think the switch is at fault - but can any one tell me how to get the correct replacement? Lambda - too high could this be related to miss-fire or is it an ecu or lambda sensor itself Where can I get a new sensor and how much do they cost? 20XE engine MBE941 ecu wide band lambda sensor Any help will be greatly appreciated
  3. Hi all I'm in need of some assistance if anyone could help, I had a faulty TPS sensor which we decided to change, we changed it and to check the setup plugged in the laptop with easimap to check, while plugged in the hard drive of the laptop failed, and car then wouldn't start at all. I then downloaded the easimap software onto my wife's laptop, plugged in and it seems the ecu has been wiped. My laptop has been in for repair but it's terminal so I can't get anything back. Would anyone have a base map for a MBE967 2.0 xe std apart from throttle bodies I could have a copy off? Thanks all

    Creating an XE loom

    I'm not pretending to know anything much about electrics and wiring, but somehow I've got to create an XE loom from a Pinto one. Having stripped it out of the car last night, the issue that sticks out to me is that of the wiring for the ignition amplifier module for the old pinto engine. Does anyone have any wiring diagrams etc. for an XE loom. What should I do with the amplifier wiring, I suppose strip it back and investigate where it originates from.

    C20XE dry sump questions

    Morning, Once again I'm drawing on WSCC knowledge... So thanks in advance for any help and apologies for the inevitable stupid questions! After a reasonable amount of development work on my car over the last few months, it's now been a couple of track days without any issues so upgradeitis (or maybe reliabilityitis in this case) has started to set in. The car has somewhere North of 220bhp @ 8300rpm limiter and I would like to make sure it stays that way! The wet sump at the moment is a shallow 'winged' one, with apparently high pressure oil pump (I've never seen less than 2 bar even at idle and oil at 100 degrees, this is on an ETB dash setup with pre-calibrated sensors so have no reason to believe it's inaccurate), oil cooler and remote filter. Last time on track I noticed lateral g creeping very close to 1.5, and consistently over 1.3, so I'm wondering if a dry sump setup is going to be a prudent step (then I can also get some used slicks to save killing my 888s). I'm also aware it will improve ground clearance and free up a bit of power which can't be bad So... 1) Is this a good step to help ensure engine longevity? 2) Which brand's kit is the best of the bunch, all factors considered (price, ease of fitment, reliability, availability of spares)? 3) I'm reasonably confident with a set of tools, is this a home job? And can it be done with the engine in situ? 4) How much will I need to budget to do the job properly? 5) Any other important info I've missed?! Thank you! Adam

    Short propshaft

    I'm considering moving my engine rearwards during the conversion from Pinto to XE, reason is it has a RH dry sump pump arrangement which I'm convinced will be too close / foul the chassis. If I want to move the install rearwards is there a standard propshaft that Westfield do for the type 9 box for this? If not has anyone got information on how much length can be lost in the prop before the bell housing will foul against the bulkhead? I'd be interested in what company members have used to shorten props as well, and how much you've been charged? Any info on this would be appreciated.
