  1. Nlc - Lister Bell Stratos Build Thread

    Cheers Leigh, Manifold and cat pipe I think... Backbox should be fine. I was hoping to go gunmetal I the hope it may be a little more kinder to the dirty marks..

  3. Nlc - Lister Bell Stratos Build Thread

    Do you zircotec the cats or the pipes before and after? Interested as it was something I looked at last time and never did.
  4. S2 Exige S vs S3 Elise S/220

    Yeah the s2 didn't for sure. I'd say front left under the headlight looking at the pipes how they lift and drop for the wheel arch
  5. S2 Exige S vs S3 Elise S/220

    Andys right. This s has too.. You can see the pump https://www.pistonheads.com/classifieds/used-cars/lotus/elise-s3/lotus-elise-s/9127789#&gid=1&pid=8

  7. S2 Exige S vs S3 Elise S/220

    For anyone interested and with a spare half an hour, here's the thread I was referring to in my earlier post. https://www.lotustalk.com/forums/f157/2007-exige-s-intercooler-air-flow-study-59117/ The max reading was 1100 fpm at about 80mph, that implies a flow of around 715 cfm. With just fettling and the Cup roof, only about 275 cfm flowed through the I/C at 80mph. So if this data is accurate, I've increased the flow through my intercooler 2.6x, over a fettled clam with a Cup roof only.
  8. S2 Exige S vs S3 Elise S/220

    Hi Dan, Having had a s2 exige s260 and doing allot of research I hope this helps you.. First off it's not the supercharger that overheats, its the induction air that gets hot causing what's referred to as heat soak. Elise's don't have a intercooler and run a smaller supercharger the mp45 unit which is capable of 220bhp. In the s2 exige the unit is a mp62 fitted with a intercooler mounted over the engine itself, which isn't ideal. The more it's pushed obviously the hotter the engine gets, heating the metal intercooler itself. Several very in depth tests show that the roof scoop system, small and large scoops do assist in the cooling, the larger option only over around 110 iirc. The smaller scoop was actually more affective upto that is better as its not taking the hot air from the radiator straight off the windscreen into the scoop. The biggest issue is the scoops feed directly into a letter box which is very constricted, hence why if you stay the intercooler route, the bigger proalloy unit with side scoop additional feeds. The best all round is to go charge cooled and negate all the above issues. Back to the elise front... Also bear in mind that the s2 sc and s3 sc are 2 different engines... You either get the s2 with the rev happy 2zzge or the newer 2zrge which dosnt have the high rpm scream which I loved on second cam. IIRC the higher powered s3 variants also run a charge cooler system but I may be completely wrong on that. Another Option is to find a very rare S3 RGB Elise, which had the very last of the 2zz engine in an s3 body.

    Yeah the old matts were grey but had no heel pad. The heel pad set in the exige were great so when I saw these I thought why not... Test fit and there perfect, maybe 6mm too wide but I can see that's from the side carpet Sent from my G8141 using Tapatalk

    Another small job whilst I wait for my seats... I managed to find a set of genuine lotus sport mats from a chap who bought the last of lotus's stock... Perfect for mine in K series trim with the long foot rest... The only issue being no stud holes but I thought it's worth a punt.. So they arrived yesterday a day after ordering and this morning I managed to make a punch tool that fits the outside diameter of the locking button. 4 holes later they are ready for a test fit tonight.

    I second what Deans said. Gav's just dropped a new belt on mine and caught a weepy water pump whilst he was there.
