    LY200 - too loud or blow up again, taking bets!

    Not typically and the filter itself is actually sat quite far back from the holes which is probably why (it's about directly where the slam panel would normally be) so it's not been an issue in light rain when left a couple of times - but normally it's inside a Cair-o-port in the garage. I've...

    LY200 - too loud or blow up again, taking bets!

    A little update after the track day at Snetterton on the 25th. Short version, made it there, tracked all day with no engine or noise issues, came home. However it was certainly a difficult day. I knew going there my AD08R were not perfect, the 2 on the rear had plenty of life but the 2 on the...

    Yiannis' Albi Blue R27. Back from the Alps

    £600 for rotors is quite steep I think, especially when it's arguably not needed. If these cars absolutely needed them then you accept you're over the barrel... But I think the cheaper options are worth exploring. Kamracing resell godspeed, they have rotors only listed at £295, so Def more...

    LY200 - too loud or blow up again, taking bets!

    I didn't fit mine on its own so can't judge in isolation, but my car now with the light pulley too, well you can pull off on clutch alone and it doesn't feel close to stalling (well once the thing is warm, my cold start right now is quite bad!). The main criticism I've seen leveid at light fly's...

    LY200 - too loud or blow up again, taking bets!

    Ah nice one cheers. I reckon that's a bit lower than where I'm at now. I could lose some height, maybe a few cm's - but I think it looks based on the pic that they might be a touch low for my liking? Easy enough to use a bit of box section to raise things, or maybe even copy the side mounts but...

    LY200 - too loud or blow up again, taking bets!

    Seat belt, hmm not given much thought about that actually, but thinking on the fly... I would think weld a small additional say 2mm plate for strength to the inside of the side mount and drill a hole right through the mount and plate. Then weld a captive nut on the inside and lastly just flat...

    LY200 - too loud or blow up again, taking bets!

    @temeeo oh also which side mounts are you using (they Rentune ones?) and how's the height in relation to the stock CS height? At the moment I've got Madeno lowered frame on the CS which is about 4 or 5cm lower and probably about spot on. I know my endeavour with the Apex I tried both the OMP and...

    LY200 - too loud or blow up again, taking bets!

    But when is more power not the answer :tearsofjoy: Yeah probably right, I think more like 40KG. The CS are about 30KG each, think I recall 27KG?? Where as SPG are 6.5KG according to the Recaro info I've seen - then plus side mounts which are what ~2KG for driver and I guess ~3-4KG for passenger...

    LY200 - too loud or blow up again, taking bets!

    Started to do a bit or research on weights and looks like I was truly miles off on how much would be saved by plastic windows! Found this post from the forum which has it all weighed out. -11kg total to be saved and that's fixing the windows up front and removing the mechanisms which accounts...

    LY200 - too loud or blow up again, taking bets!

    Bit of an update and monologue. Took a trip across the country to Caffeine and Machine last weekend (saw another nice LY there), so that pretty much concludes the shake down of the car as far as road use is concerned. And so with that completed I've booked it's first track time since it all...

    Yiannis' Albi Blue R27. Back from the Alps

    Reyland are fine, I've used them for a while and no issue with Pagid as blanks, just a basic oem disc essentially but at 330mm there is enough heat dissipation - crucial thing as always is the pad and fluid is correct. True they are not curved veins on the internal structure like you'll find...

    Oh man not you and your speed run videos again!?! :wink::kissingsmiling::laughing::tearsofjoy: yeah will do at some point mate, it might be some months before it stops raining over here mind!!!

    LY200 - too loud or blow up again, taking bets!

    Yeah I am and no problems, I've known of several engines running 403's now without issue on standard pistons - they are designed to be that way. There was some info floating around on this forum years ago about 403's not clearing the exhaust cam, I think it was from a cam test by TDF, anyway...

    LY200 - too loud or blow up again, taking bets!

    Cams are 403's, full list of engine spec below. Main items that would yield power increases I've put green, and the more secondary items that might contribute a very small amount but sort of add up to compliment the sum of the whole package in blue. I don't know if the 232 is accurate, I...

    LY200 - too loud or blow up again, taking bets!

    Car's back, sounding a lot better so I think it must have been blowing a fair amount before! Windows mostly been up as wet and cold today...but couldn't hear any rasp like before so very happy :) Wiring penciled in for 7th, will be firmed up later but I don't think timing is going to allow for...

    LY200 - too loud or blow up again, taking bets!

    Akra should have been the last one!? But I think it might have been induction related at Bedford anyway - can't see my manifold making the car mega loud over others who run the Akra for which I've never seen a noise issue with. I'll be at Combe or Brands I think for first track back in this, so...

    LY200 - too loud or blow up again, taking bets!

    Actually that's a pretty decent idea, I've got an every day centre section, an 'MOT' centre ;), so another one with a really long silencer might be wise for track - shouldn't make any real difference on power and doesn't matter what power you have if you can't actually take it out! Dread to...

    LY200 - too loud or blow up again, taking bets!

    yeah......hmmmm, to say I'm 'concerned' is a little bit of an understatement!! I've been booted off tracks before in this thing and well it's not got any quieter!! Carbon airbox might be needed for track use to calm the induction, and exhaust should be ok at most circuits I think. It was fine...

    LY200 - too loud or blow up again, taking bets!

    Then have a little bit more :wink: Exhaust work completed and put it on the dyno there, 232bhp! With a wheels fig of 193 I think a touch high on the losses but it's a few more at the wheels than whilst it was mapped - so the colder air and no mapping heat soak def means more than it made on...

    Renaultsport R27 0465

    Ah nice, someone going for the Madeno R&T based kit :) What's the cost if you don't mind? I had a quote a few years back for the Ohlins Clubsport based kit before they were doing a R&T option..€6k though which was way too rich for my liking!
