The car arrived home a day early, i was just trying to check in to a flight to Norway (which i missed), when the nice man called to say he was 30 mins away. Long story short my brother met the man and car is now at friends Lock Up awaiting being stripped and re-sprayed.......Starlight Black as per the original car
Engine in, only issue is the throttle cable hits the bonnet, so may need to adjust one of them.......
Nice big Dump Valve
Ickle Bit tight for the turbo but a ahem "Chimney" style heat shield, turbo blanket and baulkhead has been given the heat shiel treatment. Should help, undertray has a massive naca duct in it underneath and engine bay has a 4" in line fan to move air around when stopped or hot...
Charge Cooler, looks like a custom fit.....however its a Fiat Seicento std radiator, which is twin pass, with a modded end tank to take the 19mm tube to the charge cooler
Rear looks fairly std, as it has the original 3" Lotus ends :cool
Vibratechnics engine mount, and a few things in where the wheel arch should go so may need a little move around :beat
Inside the car we added the AFR gauge, the centre consol can do it but easier to look at the MTX, passengers knee may hit it so will remove the wifes right leg if this happens (y)
Front Clam with triple pass Pro-Alloy rad with 2 pull radiators.....charge cooler also has fans on back side for added cooling
AP 4 pot brakes look tiny against the 308MM discs, from a Vectra re-drilled to suit Elise Hub, all under std 111S wheels :o
Little, bad video, have explained to mate never to rev and switch off the engine again......or i kill him
Sounds and footage is terrible so will get a better one later. Its has a resonance through the longer pipe, so blocking this quietens the exhaust.....just in case its too loud i can bung a bung or orifice into it
