Update June 2005
I thought you might be interested in a few new photos of my 2001 Esprit. I have had Micheal Fridmann of Michael's Motorsports in Lexington, Massachusetts install some Claudius-built twin intercoolers and BOVs, had the intercoolers, cam covers and plenum powder coated yellow to match the body, installed a Quaiffe LS differential and installed a RAID Daytona Airbag steering wheel and a Claudius-built boost gauge.. I have also installed a P.U.K. Red Race chipset. I have had the car at a variety of tracks and it kicks a$$.
