  1. New Parts - New Battery

    Picked up a new battery at Autosport, on Odyssey PC950, this will mount inside the crossmember in the cabin on the passsenger side - freeing up space for other things in the front of the car. Also fitting a "normal" isolator switch as my fancy electrical one has failed....

  3. Uprated Lower Ball Joint

    While looking for various components on the suspension I have purchased the following Lower Ball Joint from Race Tech Direct who are specialist TVR dealers. After reading various articles are forums it became clear that some of the TVR's used this item as standard. There had been a couple of failures due to people installing cheap items.

    Below are the details from the supplier and their details on the web page if anybody else is interested. Retail price is 48 + VAT.

  4. Cooling my Turbo Engine

    One of the things that came up in convevrsation was coolant flow which in an ideal world, needs to be in the region of 1L/min/kw to stop localised boiling - well as i Have over 350Kw it is doubtfull that i will find a pump with 350L/min flow, but my DC pumps are rated max 115l/min.
    The figures I was quoted were of course for an ideal world for a turbo engine, but the basic idea is the higher flow the better. A second problem with the DC pumps is that i was running their controller, so at times ...
