2006 Exige Build Thread


First sorry, this post is damn near 100% vanity. I get a number of questions on various online sites about the mods to my Exige so I figured this was the place to keep them all in one post that I can update as the build progresses. At this point I've upgraded basically every system of the car from motor/power, transmission, brakes, suspension, aero, safety, interior, etc. While there are still a number of things on the list they are the big ones: drysump oil system, sequential transmission, cage/fire suppression. I couldn't be happier with the performance on the car and can't imagine any other car I'd rather have. I feel rather lucky that even if I hit the lottery tomorrow there's nothing I'd replace my Exige with - I would pour more money into mine to "finish" it but there's no other street based car I'd rather have. So with that here's the full list.

As always I welcome an input, thoughts or opinions on future mods, questions about what/why I've done and any bashing of some of the dumber things I've maybe done (expensive brushed indicator stalks on a track car, really??). Oh and because we all like pretty pictures (and @Vantage requested it) here's a shot from Road Atlanta in 2013

Here's one of my quicker laps around High Plains Raceway in Denver. 3 seconds off my fastest but one of the better videos I've done, definitely the best audio I've gotten.
