Quote, " Thank you for the fast reply, yes, the car is in Germany, in my hands. - The engine has other injectors (Bosch), Porsche Wastegate, KKK turbocharger, the Ford kit for more hp, includes the big diameter Exhaust tubing with the Ford kit manifold. Fully Aeroquip equipment, and the heavy screws are change to titanium, it is a road car, but with hard bushings all around. -
The car is lower on the road as the original car: the Bilstein peoples make me a set of shocks with the original rating, but shorter and so the car is low on the road. - With 13.000 kms I have get a new engine, built in at Aston Martin Tickford. - Ever I had a misfiring engine, I found, that the loom to the ECU was shortened from new in the factory an was drilled together jus by hand, I think the loom must be repaired, my cross reference list shows me, it is a production part from ford. - Also the gearbox shift a little hard, I prefer to open it for inspection. - My sales price is near GBP 52.000. - The car is sold private and without German VAT - To see for you, from witch hands the coming: Iím a system supplier for all motor sport companyís with special parts, made here in our house. See the appendix. - Best regards, Bernd Sobek
