          Any idea where the car will now be living?

            Hello Brad,

            The car found a home in my garage in Pleasanton. I'd love to get it sorted on the dyno day on July 13th, but unfortunately I have an appointment I can't break. That said, it appears to be in pretty good shape. If there's more horsepower to be had I'm not sure what I'd do with it, but I'm slow. I'll definitely keep my eyes open for future events.

              Looks to be a great car for the advertised price. Welcome aboard. If you are much like the rest of us, you have just changed your life more than you realize. It's not just a car.

                That changes in just a few weeks or months.

                  CASwede, I live in Tracy and work in Dublin. Any way I could try to fit in your car to see if a 7 should even be on my radar?

                      Thank you very much for the test fitting CASwede. My wife doesn't thank you, but I surely do. Now I just need to lose some more weight or find an SV or other, slightly wider 7 clone and save my pennies.

                        What ECU does it have?

                          Your guess is as good as mine! The owner had no paperwork for the powertrain. I know it has visible elements of Caterham's Zetec 205hp performance package on a Zetec ZX3 engine, so at minimum it is a nice ZX3 setup. The powertrain was put together by Rich at Sears Point, I believe, after the builder got sick of figuring out the carb setup. Rich switched to, and put in, the FI and probably the ECU at a minimum. He was going to check to see if he had records, but it was twelve years back. The car needs a baseline health report and inventory list. But I've been taking it slow. Mechanically nothing sounds or feels afflicted, so I've just been having fun driving it!

                          I've got Rich's info, and I'm looking to talk to some others if there are any references for Zetec and/or Sierra T9 mechanics in the Bay Area. I assume I'd include Ford guys in that mix. I expect there is more opportunity to tune and modify these engines wearing a Ford hat than there is a Caterham hat. I'm pretty comfortable working on Caterham chassis/suspension stuff myself.

                          If there's someone you like, shoot me a private message. Thanks all!

                            Suggest that you try to track back some of the underhood wires. Sooner or later something(s) will connect to the ECU. Mine is on the firewall, drivers side, in the footwell. Probably will not be in the engine compartment in order to protect the unit from the heat generated by the motor. Are the underhood wires labelled?

                              If you can snap a pic of it, we can identify it for you.
