  1. My car is an early S2 Elise 190 K series ( 2003 ) which I think has the same oil cooler take off. If you can find out if it does I can remove the undertray and take some photos for you. AFAIK the cooler is long, linea & front mounted behind a front undertray similar to my S2. Again I don't mind taking photos if you find out that's the case. This shows the filter housing with the take offs : https://www.deroure.com/diagrams.asp?TBL=1671&MAK=1&MDL=16&SMA=0&SMO=0&ST=&SC=0 This shows oil cooler and pipe routing : https://www.deroure.com/diagrams.asp?TBL=1688&MAK=1&MDL=16&SMA=0&SMO=0&ST=&SC=0 Russ
  2. I have the Eliseparts rose joints and no increase in harshness that I noticed. They allow the wishbones to pivot smoothly up and down without the self centering you get with the rubber OEM joints. This is the kit : https://www.eliseparts.com/shop/steering-br-suspension-1/bushes-bearings/ep-tuning-wishbone-bearings/
  3. Leigh you may have been seeing high oil temps due to running on the dyno, the fans can never replicate the ram air from driving. There is bound to be some swarf in a newly built engine, the filter is doing it's job
  4. Kurt my thoughts are with you all, wishing for the best outcome for Amy.
  5. It does say 2001 model year on the cover which indicates K series cars, not easy to spot though
  6. Give Jonnyboy a ring https://classifieds.seloc.org/ads/s2-or-v6-soft-top/ Or Rocky at Halesowen https://www.uklotuscentre.co.uk/index.php/contact/ Welcome BTW 🙂
  7. If you can wait until tomorrow afternoon I'll have a measure & let you know . Russ
  8. The K series S2 only uses one of the sensors for both ECU and stack the other sensor is not used. The black one is the one that does both jobs : https://www.eliseparts.com/products/show/33/158/ecu-coolant-temperature-sender-s2/
  9. Not too bad with the inlet manifold and TB removed. You will of course need to empty the cooling system, re fill and bleed ☹️ A digital thermometer with the probe taped to the cylinder head water outlet will give you an accurate enough reading to diagnose if it is the sender or not.
  10. Hi Alex, you are welcome to borrow the fronts of my road wheels, they have Contis on but run true on my car without any vibration. i'm over in Derby on Friday and don't mind dropping them off for you on my way home.
