The YOB started off as a 2004 R300 Caterham 7
This had been converted to a 2.3 Duratec with mild cams and throttle bodies giving 256bhp
Not a bad start for your first 7 i can hear you thinking, but the upgrade bug got a grip and things started to get carried away

The first dyno run with a new GoodFab exhaust, before the BIG upgrade

I never knew that it had the AP master cylinder in it - happy to go out in it at Llandow now, personally I think that is the best upgrade.

You asked about it and what you should an all..........

Or am I day dreaming about whether to have a brake balance valve fitted??????


Any roads I have decided that I will drive the Yob at Llandow so that you can have definitive answer about how good/excellent/mega the car is.
