£6500ono. Call me if interested 07807212666 or pm me.HI EVERYONE. PUTTING MY CAR UP FOR SALE. IT HAS HAD MANY THOUSANDS SPENT ON IT IN THE FOUR YEARS I HAVE OWNED IT. IT WAS LAST ROLLING ROADED AT 274BHP BUT I MADE A BAD CHOICE WITH CAMSHAFTS AT THE TIME. I CHANGED BACK TO STANDARD CAMS AFTER AND TORQUE AND POWER WERE GREATLY IMPROVED. I WOULD BE CONFIDENT TO SAY IF I TOOK IT BACK IT WOULD BE 300BHP AND THAT IS RUNNING SAFE WITH A LOWER REVV LIMIT I PUT ON OF 6250 REVVS. THE CAR HAD NOT BEEN BUTCHERED WITH BIG BUMPERS AND BAD SPRAY JOBS. I LIKE IT TO LOOK PLAIN AND SIMPLE AND SO MOST OF THE MONEY HAD BEEN SPENT ON PERFORMANCE OR REPLACING WORN ITEMS SUCH AS SCRATCHED HEAD LIGHTS, WORN SEAT LEATHER COVERS ETC.

AS FAR AS I AM AWARE MINE IS THE MOST POWERFUL SUPERCHARGED ONE THAT HAS EVER LIVED. I GOT THE CAR ON 30K MILES NEARLY 4 YEARS AGO. AT 37500 MILES I FIRST FITTED THE BRAND NEW SUPERCHARGER KIT I HAD BOUGHT. I HAD A FEW ISSUES AT THE BEGINNING WITH COUPLINGS BEARINGS AND OIL SYSTEM. THESE ARE THE MAIN FAULTS WITH THE KIT BUT ONCE SORTED THEY ARE BULLETPROOF. IT RAN 232 BHP WITH NO PROBLEM FOR 11000 MILES. WHEN THE CAR HAD DONE 48K I THEN WANTED MORE POWER SO DID A REBUILD ON MOST OF MY CAR IN NOV 2010. I FITTED A REBUILT ENGINE. THIS ENGINE HAD DONE ONLY 27000 MILES, IT HAD ALL GENUINE PARTS USED, NEW LINERS, OIL PUMP,6 INJECTORS, CAMBELTS, WATER PUMP, 2 BRAND NEW GENUINE COMPLETE CYLINDER HEADS WITH VALVES CAMS AND LIFTERS. IT ALSO HAD OMEGA LOW COMPRESSION FORGED PISTONS FITTED. THESE WERE THE PROTOTYPE DESIGNED AND USED BY MGR. THE CAR WILL COME WITH 2 SPARE PISTONS THAT WERE LEFT OVER. I ALSO HAVE ALL INSTRUCTIONS AND PAPERWORK SO SPARES ARE EASILY AVAILABLE IN THE FUTURE. A BOX OF BITS I HAVE WILL BE GIVEN TOO. VARIOUS OLD OIL PIPE UNIONS, SPARE SUPERCHARGER COUPLING, SPARE BEARINGS, OLD ENGINE MOUNTS ETC. THERE ARE ALSO STACKS OF PAPERWORK, EVERY OLD MOT AND RECEIPT FOR EVERY PART I HAVE EVER BOUGHT. TOO SCARED TO ADD IT ALL UP. PROBABLY SOMETHING LIKE 13-14K. I HAVE REGULARLY SERVICED IT WITH TOP END OIL CHANGED EVERY 6000 MILES.

WHEN I POLISH IT UP IT IS IN SHOW CONDITION. IT WAS AT ZEDTEN LAST YEAR AND PEOPLE WERE VERY IMPRESSED HOW CLEAN IT WAS. THERE ARE NO DINGS IN THE DOORS FROM CAR PARKS EITHER. ONLY DOWN POINTS ARE THERE ARE STONE CHIPS IN THE FRONT BUMPER AND FEW IN THE BONNET. OTHER THAN THAT IT IS PRETTY MUCH UNMARKED.

IT IS A VERY FAST CAR. THE POWER IS INSTANT WITH NO LAG LIKE ON A TURBO CAR. IT HAS LOADS OR TORQUE LIKE A TURBO DIESEL WHICH MAKE EASY CRUISING. HERE ARE A FEW CARS IT HAS BEATEN OFF THE LIGHTS WORTH MENTIONING. NORMALLY RACE TILL BOUT 120 DEPENDING ON THE ROAD.

The car does still exist! It's still owned by myself and is sat on my driveway right now.

However, it isn't currently alive.


Back in July 2013 the big end bearings spun on cylinder 1.

Over the course of a year, I gathered new parts, to the point every internal engine bolt was replaced, new crank, new bearings, bent rod replaced, couple of forged pistons replaced.

I rebuilt the full engine and got in running in August this year. It lasted 600 miles, then one of the Gudgeon pins worked loose. It was one that the machine shop had replaced the piston on for me. It consequently damaged the uprated banded liner beyond repair, and cracked the new forged piston.

So right now as we speak, it is again engineless, the machine shop are sorting me some new parts, and once they've done that, I shall be building it back up and boosting away!

It's been quite a journey with this car, it's had it's problems, but whatever happens, I shall keep it going, no matter how long it takes.
