Project valver - red Ph 2 CAT engine supercharging potential

Post by Jack » Sun Apr 13, 2014 12:29 pm

Location Northants. 92,671 miles

this is a late CAT phase 2 so it has supercharging potential (supercharging link below)

Please note the following pictures are 4-5 years old, and the car has been stored in a garage for most of that time. I can't get any recent photos at the moment, but it's the same shape, though maybe a little less red.

A bit of history: this originally failed its MOT because of emissions. I was advised that the lambda sensor is probably a good place to start. Other technical stuff that I can supply here: http://www.bxclub.co.uk/forum/viewtopic ... 73&start=0" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
Before the prang it was fully done up by a good Citroen garage but after we moved the engine was messed about with by a local garage "mechanic" and the timing seems out.

Anyway, (except for a red locking fuel cap) the car is complete with both bumpers intact.

Please note, I can't break it here, and if garage prices to fix it are too high for me then I can't guarantee there will be any good outcome.

Any interest or offers, please get in touch straight away to avoid me paying garage prices for any work and transport which may hinder negotiations. Seems I have used up my last garaging extension and it's urgent that I get this shifted A.S.A.P.

Asides the damage to the rear wing this was a tidy car, the rear 1/4 will take some fixing but a decent bodyshop should sort it.
