    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.

    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

    Car is back on the road folks. Here are some pictures of the completed motor…

    After opting for the Track Edition HPA EFR kit back in December, I did my due diligence by speaking to no less than 7 Installers with a view to complete my build. It became apparent there were various levels depending on budget but Autograph near Preston stood out with their experience and their level of detail. They also came highly recommended by Steve V6RUL (thanks for everything Steve) and after chatting at length with them about the best possible build it was decided that:

    The engine and Gearbox needed to come out of the car for assembly.

    A suitable uprated clutch was required and I decided early on to retain the DMF.

    The bottom end would be rebuilt with the conrod bearings supplied with the kit as part of the upgrades.

    The timing chains and tensioners would be replaced along with the water pump and everything else…

    The engine needed split and cleaned / inspected / head skimmed before reassembly with the headspacer plate...

    Here are some pictures of the completed motor…

    Running the engine in for 500 miles and then an oil change - drive home was uneventful as limiting the revs but the on tap power is amazing

    Few recent pictures. Removed the BBS alloys and car driving much better with less torque steer.
