Alternative is to add a header system, they all still seem to be based on the old 2.5" exhaust. I would recommend going with the BOE long tube headers.
Haha, as much as I want the BOE kit, I don't know if I would sleep well at night knowing that I'd be reducing the exhaust size. Whelp, looks like it's time to make my own exhaust...

Of course you would Julian

Tell me again why BOE use a 3" bore on their 2ZZ TVS install (approx 400bhp) but only 2.5" bore on a 400bhp V6?

Unfortunately, too typical.. At least that's not as bad as being asked if this is the new Ford.

I would have been happy with Tie Fighter screens

Detail please!

It's a different airbag cover for the 400s, but they use the same retaining clips. The warpage issues on the S1s seemed to be from either the panel material itself warping under heat, or the leather shrinking. Both cause the clips to break and then you get that trailing edge popped up.

ArtfulDodger It is (finally) starting to warm up and it was time to recharge the AC in the Evora. A quick search didn't turn up any pictures of the valve location (behind right front wheel) so I took one to share... Now I just need to get some tint put on the windows

He slowed down again and matched my cruising speed and did it again. Very impressive. Reminded me of that YT video series "When you think you are fast and this happens".

Wasn't even racing the guy but man it was fun to watch him go!
You can tune the hell out of those motors 450HP easily done. Its still a heavy tanker.

LotusTrbo Thank you Agentdr8, just picked up my sun shade per your recommendation and it’s a perfect fit. Yes it’s a little expensive but cheaper than having the airbag clips replaced. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...itle?ie=UTF8&p […]

My clutch pedal went to the floor last week, so I bought the Wilwood clutch master cylinder from Greg's Race Parts. I thought this would be a fairly simple change out, but it took me much longer than expected. The main issue is the lack of space in the Evora. I spent quite a while in the footwell trying to get the clutch fork attached to the pedal. There's just not enough room for hands to manipulate everything. At the front of the car there are a couple hard hydraulic lines that make it difficult to get access for tools when bolting the cylinder to the bulkhead.

The replacement kit itself is fine; much better engineered than the OEM version. The only real problem I had with the kit is the the fork that attaches to the clutch pedal had different sized holes such that the OEM pin only fit through one side. It was too big in diameter to go all the way through so I used a bolt and nut instead. Hence the time trying to get the nut threaded when I could only get one finger in there to hold it.

The clam off work wasn't as daunting as I expected. It takes some time to remove the wheel well liners, headlights, and all the bolts but really it is nothing to deter anyone. Not difficult at all.

Everything went back together nicely and the master cylinder works great. The pedal feels much better and I've had no issues.

Crap, you have the same BMC that I got with the resin plate??? that resin plate will beak. I got mine installed at the dealer and in about a month into driving it everyday, the resin plate ripped and so Greg had to send me a billit plate and I had to re-install it.
