    Hi Everyone,

    We have just started the install of a HPA EFR turbo kit and thought you might want to see a build thread. The install will include a full engine rebuild along with a clutch upgrade and a few other bits and pieces. We have just moved into our premises so please don't judge us if the building looks a bit of a mess!

    I'll try to keep this as up to date as I can but we have a lot of work on at the moment so there might be a delay here and there. If there are any questions about the supply and install of these kits then please PM us.

    Cheers,
    Andrew.

    Bumper for safe keeping, we will do the same with the headlights and any other delicate parts.

    The car has an intake and a cat-back exhaust fitted so made more than stock power on the dyno. Data logs were taken and a full vehicle fault code scan done before we start, everything seems healthy especially for over 100k!

    Hi Mark - hope you're well. Did my friend get in touch about the re-map on his TTS?

    WoW - the guys at autograph have been busy - lovely to see the engine on the bench. Put a smile on my face ;-)

    Starting to take shape nicely.
    Hopefully they don't mix out bits up, unless I get better ones..

    HaHa - cheers Stuart. They used something called a steam cleaner and then a hose device with a turbo attached! Magical devices ;-)

    Will send you a PM mate.

    We had a problem with the spec clutch last week but got back on track with a Sachs Motorsport replacement that Autograph had sent by special delivery from Germany.

    I heard about your Gearbox from Andrew - nothing is straight forward and you'll know all about patience and perseverance! :whip:

    Will drop you a PM
