Re: Tyres

For insurance purposes you have to fit z rated tyres to an S3 , which makes it expensive to buy these tyres !

Re: Tyres

So 215 will fit on these wheels , is that the widest that will fit ? The high cost of these tyres seems to be all down to z rating .

Re: V12 engine development explained by Hassan & Mundy

Yes , spotted the utube clip a few months back and have been interested to read about the history of the development of this engine in the e type magazine . Nice to know it was the engine used to develope the Jaguar Le Mans v12 winner .

classicfabs exhaust system

Anyone purchased the classicfabs v12 exhaust system , the sound and power increase look very interesting , ok its going to cost more than a standard system but that doesn't give those improvements as the sound is a little bit quiet !

Re: Insurance values?

Evening all. My renewal will be due soon and I'm contemplating increasing the sum insured, currently set at £40,000. Looking on-line there's not too many cars for sale at that price level that I'd consider were as useable as our old girl which has 90k miles on the clock, is a UK car, has an advisor...

Re: Finally got one!!

Hello all, after many years of wanting an E Type but always finding reasons not to buy one I have finally taken the plunge with a 1974 V12 2+2 in old English white arrived last weekend in pretty good condition, drives great but only starts up when it feels like!

Re: Heritage Throttle body injection

Reprogrammable ECU is the translation of 'megasquert' , which is the same as any other re programmable ECU eg Emerald or MBE which are trade names . The point is that ECU's are better at running engines than no ECU which is e-types with original spec carbs etc and putting throttle bodies on instead ...

Re: Heritage Throttle body injection

I am sorry if you thought I said that throttle bodies are boring... I was saying that the sterile, predictable, relentless relaibility of modern cars is what I find boring, I'm sure a V12 on throttle bodies with fuel injection is faster, more responsive, and more frugal than one on carbs. But I did...

Re: Heritage Throttle body injection

No one with any experience would ever say throttle bodies are boring , very very few if any modern cars have TB's fitted as standard unless they are very special as cars have single point injection which is a tad boring but generally cheap compared to TB's. Most race cars have TB's by the way which ...

The v12 was originally designed to have injection . If you want to keep the four Stombergs then fine .

Re: Heritage Throttle body injection

Having tried to find if anyone has fitted webbers to a v12 e type which are the same size as the Heritage TB's . there may not be enough room to fit filters on the air horns and get cool air into the chambers as the bonnet is too close . Anyway I will find out tomorrow .Very upsetting if this is the...

NEC classic car show on Fri was busy but managed to spot some nice webbers on the Jenvey stand and ....they are throttle bodies which with the various accessories and an ECU make a carb car into a very much nicer drive and potential 50% improvement in fuel economy etc etc ie smoother , air and fuell...
