my issue is for the £20-30k cost of change I don't feel that I would get that much money's worth of improvements. If I wanted to spend money on the car looking better I'd just buy the varis kit for about £10k



and spend some cash on the litchfield handling kit.

Yes does look nice, it'll never look like that for just 10k, you would need the wheels, suspension, lowering springs, installation and paint job. The lm20 isn't just the cosmetic appearance, it's stage 4.25+, different suspension, wheels, tyres, brakes, Litchfields handling kit, downpipes, exhaust, castor arms, dry carbon bits, superstock intercooler, fuel pumps and I'm sure there's other stuff I've missed and ontop of that it's a limited edition and it comes with 3yr warranty.... That takes some beating value wise

I wasn't comparing the Varis kit to the lm20 - more specifically to the base EBA and the cost difference between a 2011 dba like mine and a decent standard EBA is perhaps somewhere between the £20-30k mark.

The varis kit is around £10k ish (i've priced it up!) cost of paint & fitting you are probably looking at £3k or so, wheels and suspension another £5k, not sure what the litcho handling kits cost tbh - £1.5k?? so lets be generous and say you have it all done for £20k so still a £5-10 k saving over a good standard eba and something much more rare.

different again though when you are talking an LM20 though agreed.

either way I've got no money for either!

Even that to be honest I'd still rather have an eba, much nicer car and it puts the power down so well compared to the earlier cars. The dba cars are very good value at the moment lot of car for the money. Leave it as it is and enjoy it, not much on road that can harass you.

All, As promised here are the first few pics of the red LM20. Note it does not have the rear wing option.

My first impressions are the car are hugely positive, i am coming from an original 09 car which was stage 1..this is a bit different.

Sorry it’s late, had so much on lately so had very little time to myself. Yes I have number 18, first time out this year today as picked up for first service by Litchfields having covered very little miles since collection in August. Engine was forged and gearbox built straight away before collection as always wanted big numbers, I now have the power to match the looks lol, Hoping when it returns after a few tweaks this one should be well into a four figures when Iain’s worked his magic. Been running my old stage 4.25 CBA over winter and can honestly say the difference is night and day when you get out of one into other. Weathers glorious today so took a few pics......

You say you have built the box and engine?
you got the 3.8 or 3.8 sport ?

I answer your question of LM900 turbos (efr 6758) rather than the bigger 7163's
quicker spool... and an LM20 deserves to be driven on track so i feel the smaller turbos will give greater trackability

It’s the 3.8, would have liked the stroker version with the 7163’s but settled for the 6758’s with manifold kit. It’s more than enough for road use and would be perfect on track if I ever was to take it

Mint, what is that pushing then?
torque and power figures?
Mine is fully built box and 3.8 like you...

Just waiting for later in the year to afford turbos
