  1. Recently, I have replaced the amber/clear lens with clear/clear one, which necessitates use of an amber 1156 bulb. It is a bayonet base bulb, push-and-twist type. Bulb socket is not fastened to the lens housing in any way and gets pushed in disappearing into the housing/back side of the bumper cover without releasing the bulb. Is there any trick facilitating bulb replacement?
  2. If you'd like to have one, please add your name to the List. Depending on the degree of interest, I'll explore feasibility of initiating another Group Buy from EMCO. The List: 1. Jay Lee 2. Mike Finta 3 Henriksson, Mattias 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10.
  3. In last 6 months I had received several inquiries about EMCO Kit availability. Looks like a momentum is building... (?) Perhaps we should have a Group Buy again? If you'd like to have one, please add your name to the List, and depending on the degree of interest, I'll explore feasibility of initiating another Group Buy. The List: 1. 2. 3 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10.
  4. Looking at PUK site, I noticed that chips #3, 4 & 5 have a note " New Version 2.0 gives better boost control in high boost regions conditions" Is this a new modification, which suppose to address leaning out at a higher boost? Is 1.0 version obsolete? PUK offers an upgrade to version 2.0 for 97euro. Has anyone compared PUK-s version 1.0 vs 2.0 code?
  5. If you wait a little, you will be able to get The Ultimate Best CWP from me. All NEW geometry! 4.428 ratio improved design with stronger teeth.

  7. New parts are coming soon. 4.428 ratio improved design with stronger teeth. The ultimate best!
  8. Matt, Me bad, disregard my previous post. Jenna has 83 G-car. Since then she resolved her problems with the great help from Leon. The issue was DOM/ROW non CAT vs. Federal catalyzed architecture fit. US Stevens cars are dimensionally different and don't have similar problems. Best to talk to Leon at Alunox directly. Their 3" system is very effective.
  9. Matt, Alunox does not have a system, which would fit Federal 88 ( interference to the frame). Ask Jenna about her nightmare at https://www.lotustalk.com/forums/member.php?u=90609
  10. All good points! Fuel delivery on Esprit is an eminent danger! Ramspott-Brandt.de offers a braided hoses kit under Part Nr.: 10446 for 277 e. You can make your own system for less. You will need four EARL's fittings/adapters for the fuel filter and aux injectors, PN AT991955ERL
  11. P625.3103.009AF is obsolete by now. I have used original SE parts from JAE. They still have them
  12. I've learned a lesson... Don't go with 5/8" MC! It has not enough stroke and volume under the piston to fully dis-engage the clutch on S4s. I went back to .70" dia MC, Wilwood PN# 269-6579, with 1.4" stroke and 0.53cuin volume. Works perfectly! Also, replaced the abutment screw with new stainless steel part from JAE.
  13. Are you asking if anyone else would like to share the expense having new parts made?

    If so, are you speaking about the standard two parts from the differential, or the Sport300 diff or the Quaife diff?

    I am asking, as I am now clear what you mean.

    apart from that, i have alocal Esprit friend here, WHO participated in a modified V8 and it had a Quaife diff installed. One semi wet autoum drive, they spun out, hit a thick lightpole and smashed the Esprit to bits, while both ending in hospital for weeks.

    They said that having the Quaife diff made it stick better in turns, but not spinning both rear Wheels equally, but in the same time, while having a higher limit, once it went, it was more difficult to catch, hence the crash. At least that's what they told.

    Cheers,

    Jacques
