  1. i am still doing mine. getting the frame aligned with the window slide track such that the glass goes up and down without binding AND getting the frame snug at the top corner with the body shell hasn't been easy
  2. i recently had more doors off and could not get the stud to move so had to unbolt the assembly from the car. The studs rotated as expected but lightly hammering did not budge them through the bushing.
  3. yeah i had similar code 26 experience where i eventually discovered the relays were not arranged per the illustration in the manual so the relays i replaced were not actually applicable to the error code. good job
  4. https://www.thelotusforums.com/forums/topic/69635-wc-engineering-ceramic-bearing-turbo/ i also made some comments regarding the stock ECU with my GT3071 here: https://www.thelotusforums.com/forums/topic/83569-rolling-road-leans-out-severely-at-4200rpm/?tab=comments#comment-659885
  5. i suspect they are sacrificial much as the inserts of many other types of couplings is such as Lovejoy, etc. Since they are plastic with a plastic wheel it is less likely they absorb shock as many inserts do. I put aluminum gears in mine so the plastic torque pins probably serve both purposes now
  6. very nice! i was not aware of that process. Certainly gives another option for the dash. thanks what are your climate control knobs from? did you reconfigure the stock system?
  7. Cam what was the boost at those HP numbers? are you monitoring your fuel pressure at 90% duty?
  8. i took some pics. I replaced the cat with a short Magnaflow also straight thru. sounds the same but very slightly deeper
  9. i have one from Alunox made to my spec. It is 2.5", not obnoxious. It is a long 6" round straight thru with cat. very light and simple. This is first engine start after rebuild. I'm not sure if parking brake cables would interfere, i cut and rerouted them atop the trailing arms when i installed big brakes Alunox exhaust.flv
  10. I am planning to go aftermarket so my CC will be available around Christmas
  11. I have front and rear with parking brake. With my old S4 wheels i think i needed spacers for the rear calipers to clear the wheel. By 2 piece do you mean hat and rotor? mine are integrated but discuss options with him; he shouldn't need any parts from you. If you do go with Revolution and get the rears let me know so we can all review the final installation elements from my install; it will go much more smoothly for you (Daryl and I worked together for a few months redeveloping the rear setup when i purchased mine as those drawings were lost from previous development)
  12. you are in Georgia and are buying a brake kit from UK? Daryl at Revolution brake sells front and rear kits for Esprit with free USA shipping. I have them on my car and they work very well. I'm certain he will make any setup you wish. Mine are slightly more custom than the kits he advertises
  13. after i rebuilt the engine I logged the following oil pressure idle 3500 rpm cold 60 60 20w-50 hot 40 60 10w-40 hot 30 60 10w-40 6k miles
