The other week i decided to purchase the Elise Parts PRRT Kit along with the Lower Hose Conversion as well.
My plan was to install it prior to the Thunder in the Park track weekend i was booked on.
Things didn't go to plan in more ways than one.
Managed to fit the above kits (after about 12 hours and missing skin, what a bloody job)
However the lower coolant hose pipe is only clearing the exhaust down pipe by a few mm. I phoned Elise Parts, who was very helpful, but no resolution as of yet.
I can only see a couple of options that i have that may help?
1- My engine position is not correct? Too close to the bulkhead. Is it worth buying the uprated engine mountings that are adjustable?
Does anyone know the distance between the top of the engine to the bulkhead? And the bottom of the engine to the bulkhead?
This will tell me if my engine position is different.
2- My exhaust manifold and down pipe are too closet to the bulkhead/ too far from the engine block?
Does anyone know or have the measurement from the bottom of the engine block to the exhaust down pipe?
Any suggestions are most welcome.
