    Supercharged SSC stylus

    I always dreamed of having / building a really fast car, now I’ve done it i hardly use it. I’ve done more mile’s on my mountain bike in the last 4months than I’ve done in the car all year ! So it’s time to let someone else enjoy it. I bought this car 5yrs ago as a bog standard stylus with 1800miles on and have spent 5yrs and 15k getting it to what it is today. 11000miles Spec is massive. zetec rebuilt with new main bearings, big end bearings and new oil pump. Bespoke mp62 supercharger conversion built by red7 autoengineering Ripley. Incorporating nissin gtir plenum, rx8 450cc injectors, custom inlet manifold. Twin 70mm throttle bodies. 60a denso alternator, twin belt drive one for the alternator one for the charger, electric water pump. Canems ECU Dyno.d by Dave at canems with dual maps, Map 1 is 243bhp and 256ftlb of torque. Map 2 is 130bhp great in the rain or when you have cold tyres. Flick of a switch while driving and it will go one to the other. Custom repackable stainless exhaust made by Martin Keenan (mk fame) Helix 4paddle hd clutch to handle the torque Raceline flywheel and sump Oddesey gel battery. Push button or key start. V6 type 9 rebuilt with all new bearings, Hd layshaft bearings HD synchro rings. Retro ford hydraulic clutch. Davis Craig ewp water pump and digital control. Retro ford water rail with triple core coolex alloy rad and intercooler. Mocol Remote oil filter and thermostatic oil take off and cooler.

I've probably missed stuff off the list Have receipts for best part 20k This is a very quick car, not for the faint hearted! Good for 60 in the low 4,s. You can pop to the shops or blast it round a track, eat up the b roads, cruise up the motorway. Irritate bikers with its performance. It really is a sorted all round car. £10000 ovno Can email photos if interested Or will swap for hot hatch tintop ie focus st, golf/ Scirocco GTi etc

    Good quality tool chests

    My oldest Halfords tool cab is getting on 20yrs now and still perfectly good. At Xmas they will drop the triple set down under £249 if they haven't already

    Zetec Swirl Pot

    My car has a 2.0l swirl pot in the engine bay, fed from the rear via a facet silvertop low pressure pump, I did track days in the hot summer we just had with no issues what so ever on the fuel system.the oil overhead and the brakes melted but no fuel heat issues or surging problems. Why is it in the front ? There was no room in the back and the fuel tank wasn't suitable for modification at the time I converted the car to fuel injection. Use a good lp pump and it will be fine, mount the pot away from the exhaust in the air flow if possible and it works great.
  8. Yet I have a 1 yr warranty with my xc90, the Aircon pump failed took it in to a Volvo independent specialist the warranty paid up in so much as the cost of aftermarket part cost, I paid the the difference and had OEM original fitted they also paid for the regas and labour @ £50 an hour. So they are not all bad

    Which Tdo4 Turbo?

    Cheers for above info, think I've now hit a major stumbling block, to hang the turbo off the manifold it puts the oil feed and drain upside down or can they be switched ?
