Back at it again.

This is where we proud owners can upload information and pictures of our pride-and-joys (their Exige that is..)

Wait until after Anglesey as you may be putting it back on as you're going to get bored waiting to pass people. ;)

Back at it again

Resurrecting this thread as have a few plans this winter, and I'm sure you'd like some pictures of an Exige in bits rather than more Caterham talk :)

Shiny new 50mm triple pass radiator, thanks Dave.

Image

Was supposed to fit this last winter but never got round to it. Had some time off this week so spent a few hours today getting the clam off and the previous rad out.

Image

I've also removed the now redundant oil coolers. They had been disconnected a while ago when the car was moved over to a laminova, but this was the first time since that the front clam has been off to allow the coolers to be removed.

Deciding whether to change the Chargecooler pre rad as per the other thread.

What are your charge temps? Mine use to hover around 5-10 degrees over ambient and were always very stable. How many pumps do you use? I had a push and pull pump on mine which helped over the original single pump Proalloy supplied.

Finally been back to the car and got the radiator fitted and bled through.

Some top mount fans.

Image

Typically the fans don't have the right connectors on them so will need to sort that out.

I really need to replace the foam packing between the crash structure and the rad. Any ideas on the best place to get some replacement foam, and what would you use to stick it to the crash structure?

I bought the sticky foam on eBay when I did mine, bought several different heights to make sure I had a good seal.

Extra oil cooling in the drivers sidepod. Still running the dry sump and laminova, but wanted some extra cooling without long oil runs to front of the car.

For those that aren't aware the timing chain had snapped after a cam follower cracked and a loose piece interrupted the chain.
As a result the engine has had a full rebuild. Valve guides, valves, cam, followers, and the block has also been sleeved. Going back to standard cams.

Supercharger has been changed from MP62 to TVS1320. Extra oil cooling.
Drysump pump and tank stripped and rebuilt.
Electrics relocated into the cockpit.
Chargecooler remanufactured.
New driveshafts.

Additionally fitting the SSC larger brake master cylinder.
Nitron front uprights, and having the Ohlins serviced as one had started to leak.

Its getting there, and really looking forward to getting it back.

GT3 clam, carbon doors, and quaife sequential aren't going on just now. So if you know anyone that is looking these may, or may not, be for sale at the right price.
