This exciting project has a number of surprising elements, the power the car makes, just how fast and driveable the car is every day, the unusual but enjoyable VR6 engine sound and the age of our client who wanted this work done…he is a retired gentleman, let’s put it that way!
We were tasked with fitting a Rotrex supercharger to this Audi TT 3.2V6. There is no specific kit to fit this car so we custom designed and built the whole thing.
Take a look through the pictures further down to give you an idea what we did.
Next on the cards is a clutch upgrade for the DSG transmission.
This rare and wonderful Lotus Esprit 2.2 Turbo came to us with running issues, we have just given the car back to the owner in the last few days.
This fourth generation (Peter Stevens redesign) Lotus Esprit from 1989 features a 2.2l 4 cylinder turbo-charged engine. We have worked on this car before, fitting upgraded suspension components and various other modifications.
The engine unfortunately had a number of oil leaks when it was brought into us. It was running really rough and she clearly wasn’t well.
We diagnosed the oil leaks, injectors and plugs as being the factors.
We stripped the engine to enable us to reseal parts such as the sump gasket, crank seals, rocker cover gasket and oil pump gasket.
Wheile we had the engine out we also installed a new clutch, new cambelt and new water pump.

We gave the car a mini overhaul while it was with us, including suspension upgrades and body modifications.
The work we carried out included: upgrade rear splitter requiring modification to the stock bumper and re-colouring the reverse sensors, upgraded suspension springs, upgraded air intake system, upgrade exhaust by Miltek, bonnet lifters and chassis strengthening; all adding to the overall functionality, performance and style of this stunning car.
