Here we have for sale my Tiger Cat kit car, which is also on EBay: please see EBay item number 131149475657 for photos - these are currently of the "almost finished" car - collecting this week from Gotboost when I will be then adding photos of the completely finished car

This is one special Tiger, having been professionally refreshed and updated over the last six months by Gotboost Performance Tuning in Bridgend. Originally built by Chester Sports Cars (an approved distributor of Tiger Cars), the car was fitted with a 1800 Ford Zetec. This motor has recently been replaced with a Ford ST170 engine, running on Suzuki GSXR throttle bodies. The ST170 engine is basically a 2.0 litre Zetec at heart; it has a Zetec block but is fitted with higher compression, cast-aluminium pistons and forged steel connecting rods and has a high-flow aluminium cylinder head with larger inlet valves and higher lift intake and exhaust camshafts for higher peak rpm levels.

The car produced 175bhp at the rolling road session completed by Gotboost Performance Tuning, running off a bespoke map on a Megasquirt 2 V3 ECU.

Highlights/details of the car and upgrades are as follows (all costs quoted relate to upgrade work completed and this excludes the labour costs incurred):

ST170 engine:
VVT Delete Kit installed
Magasquirt 2 V3 ECU (£330.00)
Two turbo sport vernier pulleys installed (£120.00)
Dunnel racing shortened sump fitted (£305.00)
New cam-belt and tensioner fitted (£120.00)
GSXR750 SRAD Throttle bodies 42mm installed (120.00)
ST170 Manifold and injectors (£50.00)
New Sytec fuel pump fitted (£55.00)
Tiger racing lightened flywheel installed (£220.00)
New LUK clutch installed (£80.00)

MSA approved Tiger full roll cage installed with side impact bars (£830.00)
Escort quick rack installed to reduce turn to 2.4 turns lock to lock (£240.00)
3:62 diff & Type 9 5 speed gearbox
K&N air filters fitted (£171.00)
Fuel cap replaced with Aero flush fit cap (£160.00)
Race Technology Digidash 2 installed with matching Race Technology loom to integrate with Megasquirt ECU seamlessly (£600.00 for Dash & £220.00 for loom)
Dash wiring completely replaced and master switch installed
Savage aluminium switches installed which light up in blue, including press button engine start switch (£130.00)
New one-off carbon effect dash with rolled edges and recess for Digidash 2 manufactured and installed (£120.00)
Steering wheel replaced with OMP wheel and quick release boss installed (£190.00)
Sabelt 2" harnesses with aero release fitted (£150.00)
Lights and indicators on rear all replaced with led lights, along with front indicators (£109.00)
Suspension bushes/set up upgraded with Flo Flex polybushes (18.00)
One off carbon fibre finished pedal box designed and fitted
New carbon/leather gearknob fitted (£24.00)
Tiger Racing Aero screen wrapped in carbon vinyl (£32.00)
Boot box cover designed and fitted in carbon finish
Tunnel cover in carbon finish fitted (£50.00)
Mirrors replaced with carbon effect single seater mirrors (£48.00)
12v supply under dash installed for sat nav/phone charging
Team Dynamic Driftz allow wheels (£400.00)
Toyo proxies TR1S done just over 500 miles so practically new (£200.00)
Dominator headlights fitted (£65.00)
Tonneau cover included, finished in black with white piping to match seats

If you tot this little lot up, you can see I have invested over £5000.00 in parts alone for these upgrades. I have also spent a considerable amount on top of this for the professional labour costs to achieve such a great standard of finish. So, all together, a pretty significant investment on top of the original cost of the car, to create this rather special fast road/track focused Tiger Cat. I hold extensive paperwork and receipts providing good history, which will be passed to the new owner on completion of the sale.

I welcome personal viewing so you can ensure it is the car for you. I am collecting the car this week from Gotboost, so it should be available to view from late March. The car is currently on SORN, but will have 6 months Road Fund Licence (tax) added as part of the sale. The MOT was attained in November 2013 and the car has completed less than 100 miles since, as the upgrade work has only just been completed.

I have this advertised on EBay for £7895 ono and I invite sensible offers here. Please call me on 07912 881922 or message me on here. I am a genuine seller, selling a genuine car: I am selling only to help finance the purchase of a bike engine kit car at a substantially higher premium.
