    That's stolen, it's still got the label on the steering wheel 🤣
  2. Welcome to MLOC. I would give either Paul at PJS a call or Steve at SJ Sportscars, both are very helpful
  3. It's the best part of owning an Elise, worrying about the head gasket! 😂 It's probably been done and just not recorded, if it hasn't and needs to be done it's easy. I've got 2 spare heads in my workshop from donor engines so there's no shortage there. If you buy a Toyota engined one the gearbox will eventually go anyway 🤣 If it's good underneath buy it and enjoy it!
  4. No problem, hope you get sorted. If you have any problems your easiest solution is just give Gregor a call at RRR Engineering - its his product so he can advise best practices.
  5. https://www.gentlemenofsalvage.co.uk/collections/intake-manifolds/products/freelander-1-inlet-manifold-and-throttle-body-1-8-k-series-2001-2004?variant=28551016808508 There is a port by the throttle body and another in the centre of the manifold (red fitting) either of these should give you a vac signal
  6. The one I have in the workshop is a 2ZZ exige and the port is just manifold side of the throttle body. Any port you can find/adapt should be fine on the manifold side of the body, it only needs to sense manifold pressure
  7. There should be a port in the ecu (between the two plugs) for the vacuum hose. Should be easy to see. Any problem let me know and I'll get a photo when I'm back in the workshop. Graham
  8. I believe it was out of an Arrows A9
  9. I had a BMW turbo in my workshop a while ago, a Megatron, it had a humungous turbo!! I'll try and find a pic......

    Tyres

    I don't think 14's are the most abundant these days, I'd probably start by looking what Tweeks have and places like Black Circles as a starting point. (you probably already have) Or have you tried 'the lotus forums.com' Welcome to MLOC 👍
  11. Makes me laugh all this talk of modern 'eco' cars to save the planet that all weigh 2 tonnes with every gadget known to man, our Lotus's are much more eco friendly, I think the way forward is to put a maximum weight limit on all new cars! Rant over 🤐
  12. It could be an inlet air leak, although I must admit it sounds a bit quick (in terms of frequency) for that
