Re: Ginetta G15 SC and imp stories

nothing has changed in two years with the car, still not turbo and still around. House change, family and a broken clutch fork coming back from the one local show I attended last year resulted in 8/9months hibernation. Back up and running now hopefully be at Sunday national day, possibly the saturda...

Re: Ginetta G15 SC and imp stories

Cheers all.

Got the turbo, turned up yesterday will open it up today. the shaft has lots of play but using it as a mock up tool. A new cartridge is only 80 quid so this would be 100 in total so not all bad!

Re: Pimp2 - the rebuild starts

Very impressive mate, Would love to see some on-board footage of your runs.

Hopefully my g15 version 58675.4 will have around 160bhp mark so wonder what 0-60 times Id get out of that! Although Im still running a completely std gearbox :cry:

Re: Ginetta G15 SC and imp stories

One show left this year then it's going to go back to turbo hunting for more power again. Waiting for a gt17 turbo to turn up then make a manifold. Was going to use a tb25 but it's heavy so have decided against it. Aiming for 160bhp still leaving nos in place. http://i87.photobucket.com/albums/k157/...

Re: Davrian J14452*

Re oil take off from the middle of the block, I understand the logic of robbing from 2/3 bearings but its pressurised at that point, when my engine was turbo it ran from there for 8 years + with no signs of wear or damage on the bearings as a result. Out of interest it will be nice to know what your...

Re: Retro Rides Gathering

Probably not, I did last year and got shafted with poor organisation in the lunch brake meaning the afternoon session was messed up and short, only managed one run.

Also SW is a bit more scary compared to the Prescot track last year!

Re: Ginetta G15 supercharged

Re: Ginetta G15 supercharged

Std trans at the moment. Just need to add a coolant system to it and its ready for rolling road on the 21st of next month.

After that it will be on the road hopefully all being well with the setup in April as that's when the road tax becomes free!
