Haynes roadster Turbo

Haynes Roadster or sale as I donít have the time to drive it also I need the space in the garage and the ever impending doom for redundancy. I think in the current market £7500 is a reasonable price for a quick sale.

Registered and IVAíd in February 2017 as a Haynes roadster 1.6, so first MOT due next year.
Iíve covered about 1000 miles in that time.
The chassis and wishbones are talon fabricated and welded.
The body work is only a year old and from Equinox products
The shocks are protech and are re valved by Procomp, the suspension has also been corner weighted by Matt at Procomp
The front brakes calipers are Willwood and the rear are standard sierra (disc)

The engine and auxiliaries has cost me approximately £5000 in the past couple of years.

The Engine is a mk1 mx5 1.6 and was rebuilt by Basset down engineering last year and has done about 40miles, it has reconditioned head, forged rods, balanced crank, baffled sump, welded in turbo oil return, new oil and water pumps and bench run in.
The turbo manifold and down pipe are custom fabricated by DaveFab and has a 3inch down pipe.
The turbo is a new Garret GT2254r and there is a new Forge DV.
The engine is managed by a Megasquiret MS3x ECU mapping by Dale at Bailey Performance .
Boost controller can be activated and de-activated by a switch on the dash.
New COPís, injectors (Injector Dynamics ID1050X) alternator, oil cooler, radiator, intercooler and high pressure fuel pump were installed as part of the turbo install.
The coolant is rerouted via the back of the head using a IL motorsport kit.

The gearbox is from a MX5 mk2.5 1.8 it is and updated design from the MK1/2 also the car was a low millage rust bucket so itís a nice smooth gear box.

The clutch is a new Clutch Kit, Exedy Stage 2 Cerametallic, 1.8 MX5 on a new light weigh flywheel.

The front rear axles are sierra, with a sierra 3.95 LSD with rebuilt by Tracsport in Redditch.

I have to say that this represents one of the 'very best' 7's I have ever had the pleasure to see in my life time - nice car

It is a corker, if anyone has any doubt about buying it, once the bonnet is lifted off it is sold.....


What colour is it ? Nardo grey ?

Thanks for the nice comments
It silver grey RAL 7001
I took it out today for the first proper run since its all set up on the rolling road and its unbelievably quick and the noise of the turbo is addictive.

I have RAL7001 in my list for my chassis, about to get done over the next few weeks. What a coincidence !

Hi

Iíve had a couple of questions about BHP, its currently at 253bhp measured at Bailey performance and thatís using the Garret gt2554r turbo. If the Garret gt2556r (£631) turbo was fitted the bhp would be up to 300bhp which is the safe limit of the engine which had forged rods.
