  1. Hi All


    Well as promised here are the photos of the conversion and the final result.


    Took a trip to Goodwood FOS and the car performed faultlessly even having to sit in traffic for nearly two hours on the journey down. I did notice that the revs were fluctuating from 1000-1500rpm and Andy at EA is looking into this for me but other than that I'm loving it and taking every opportunity to go for a drive even though the weather is crap.


    I've added the pics to my gallery and added them below

  2. Hi Guys


    thanks for all the positive comments. I'll do a write up & post some pics soon, its been a busy start to the week so haven't had much chance but I'm heading down to Goodwood on Friday with Mrs Livy for the weekend so planning to do a mini road trip write up then.


    It would be great to meet up with fellow Honda Elise MLOCers, if any of you are heading down to Goodwood it would be nice to put a faces to the names.


    Believe me I feel like I know you all already with the amount of post reading I've done of the last year.


    As with EA a lovely group of people. Andy had warned me of the VTEC bark and I wasn't quite prepared for it when it first kicked in..............I can't get enough of it jump.gif

  3. I thought I'd share my experience of Essex Autosport.


    After a good few years of my S1 being garage bound & gathering dust I decided to take the plunge & get it repaired but this time with something a lot more reliable & something that would give me the buzz I had when I first bought her.


    So after trawling the forums reading lots of posts about conversions I decided to have an N/A Honda done & eventually settled on EA.


    I gave them a long list of things to do & after eight weeks I collected her this morning. I can't thank Andy, Tony & the rest of the team for building me such a fantastic car.


    Since picking it up I've spent all day driving everywhere just for the hell of it & I can't wait to do it all over again tomorrow, I just can't stop grinning.


    The surprise on the bumper huggers faces when I pull away is priceless & it's even better when they take forever to catch up.


    The engine is just amazing & feels so smooth, it's happy cruising along in sixth & eager to give you a punch in the back when needed. The Nitron Street Series & geo have transformed the handling & it feels better than it's ever done.


    The attention to detail on the install is way beyond what I expected with loads of little things done without asking & all FOC as well.


    The level of customer service from day one through to collection has been exceptional & the regular emails Andy sent with step by step photos of the work done just gave me bags of confidence that my car was in the best hands.


    I know it's not cheap but if you are in the position to have this conversion done then go for it, you won't regret it.


    I just wish I'd done it sooner. Suffice to say I'm one very happy customer thumbsup.gif
