At last, some time to work on the Esprit !!!

Had to adjust the right rear wheelarch some mm, now it's Perfect !!! Mounted the rear wing !!!, rear left cooling duct. Going to fit the rear lights, I will have a grill between the light cluster. Maybe I go for only single Outer lights, not the double. Im been druling on a pair of 458 Italia !!!

That Esprit looks too clean to be cutting it up like that!

Rear end !!!

The rear bumber needs to be drilled 7x 3" holes. Im quite used to cut and drill in this car by now. But it hurt the first couple of times !!!

Rear grill

Im not pleased With the look of the rear grill. It's to crude. Im thinking of maybe make a grill like the one on the Testarossa !!! Of course it will not go over the rear lights !!!

Rear venting done !!!

And tailgate glas removed, startet With the NACA roof duct, it will feed the airbox. I know the duct should have been on the left side of the car, but I'm need all the head Space I can get since I'm a tall driver ;-)

Roof NACA duct

I'm back. Spring is here in Norway. Time to get some work done on the Esprit.

Pic's are of what will feed the turbo. The roof duct will feed the turbo and the air will go thru a forgemotorsport.co.uk air cleaner. 4" inlet and 4" outlet !!!

I have to make two parts out of carbon fiber. One (PIC) that will sitt together with the NACA duct and another that will direct the air from this to a 4" tube. Then a 4" 90 degree silicon hose and then the air cleaner !!!
