Fitting FRP Piper cams issue

I used that guide when I installed the FRP cams in mine. Worked like a treat.

Paul's Silver Puma

IMHO I wouldn't want to mess with the PS. One of the best features of the puma is its steering. It's quick, precise and with nice feedback. Especially if you drive newer cars with EPAS and then dirve the puma you immediately see the added feedeback its steering has so you can judge accurately the av...

Thank you!

Yes it seems the weight on this list might not be so accurate. I have to open a thread for my car. There are some examples of supercharged pumas in the FB page.

Paul's Silver Puma

Unfortunately I didn't weighed mine when I had them out of the car. But according to this list each one seems to weigh 24kg together with the sliders. Having lifted them with my hands I'd say that I'd agree. They seem very heavy. https://www.projectpuma.com/viewtopic.php?t=13838 I also have PS and A...

It has evolved nicely. I have also removed the under carpet sound deadening but have installed again the carpet. I like the car to have a bit of "clubsport" look. Have you also removed the deadening in the bulkhead area? This weigh a bit. Also regarding the weight of the car does your car has still ...

Bucket Seat Mounting

With sparco subframes (it's actually the same as the FRP has) and side mount Cobra Imola without runners the seating position is a bit lower than the OEM at its lowest setting. So maybe a quick solution is to not use runners.

Hi Paul, nice project you have there running. I also like the ST. As I have a set of kw coilovers which are similar to APs I have a question. Did the rear ones come with two half nuts or one (full height nut)? The order of fitting is spring - top cap - top mount - nut -chassis - cap&nut (over the ar...

Hi. Car looks good! You say you are running overall +63 front. But the et15 wheels are +20 each compared to oem so totally +40. Have you done anything else?

My Puma.. Maximum Track Attack!!

Nice to see progress with this car! How do you feel the 17inch wheels compared to the 15inch ones? I have both the oem 195/50/15 and a mo5 set of 205/45/16 (2.3% bigger radious). On the road the 16" seem a bit more sluggish (bigger radious and heavier rims) but the car feels a bit more eager to dire...

My Puma.. Maximum Track Attack!!

I just wired it into the existing plug using a couple of spade connectors. In the oem fan there are two pair of wires going to the fan. One goes to the centre of the fan (high fan speed) and the other pair goes to the bottom and right of the fan (low speed). I was basically asking in which of the t...

My Puma.. Maximum Track Attack!!

Hi a few pages ago I saw that you went for a slimline fan. I want to do the same as I'm in the process of supercharging my puma and the oem fan gets in the place. How did you wire the new fan? Because the oem is 2 speed and the aftermarket one are usually 1 speed. Do you get rid of the resistor and ...

Dedicated Track Car Progress Thread

The mount which the gearbox hangs from is notorious for changing shape because it has gaps both from the upper and the down area. This has as a result the gearbox fouling the lower strut brace. These gaps could do with a bit of windscreen glue.

Nice work Sinisa. I don't know what that hole in the back of the engine block is. I agree that torquing the vib damper(the 90deg part) with the engine out of car is easy. Of course you have to time the engine after that. The difficult part for me was torquing the cams (especially the inlet which goe...

Possible wheel bearing issue

If the vibration is more evident on full throttle at max torque rpm (around 3500-4000) then as tuono wrote it's probably an inner joint. Classic puma problem I've replaced two in mine.
