  1. Lotus 910 2174 cc four-cylinder in-line, 16-valve DOHC, two Dellorto DHLA4OH side draugh carburettors. Bore & Stroke: 95.25mm x 76.2mm. Compression: 7.5:1. Block & Head: Aluminum alloy Garrett AiResearch T3 Turbocharger running at 8psi Power and Torque 210bhp @ 6250rpm 200lb ft @ 4500rpm this is very low compression, but why is the turbo only pushing 8 psi? Is it because there is no intercooler to cool the turbo? or maybe because its a carburettor? please enlighten me. The reason why I ask is because i plan on buying a one soon but fuel injection, I think the fuel injection have higher compression. 210hp is good but I think the 910 can push 300hp no problem. Does the aluminum block have Iron sleeves?
  2. Ever since I was bitten by the lotus bug in high school, i always wanted to go to a lotus gathering but in wisconsin, i havent seen one. is there any lotus clubs nearby?
  3. Any Esprit past the Turbo Esprit (1981-1986) a.k.a G cars is just muffin molds.
  4. is this scalextric like a train set? i live across the street to a train hobby store.
  5. On my STI, with the 2.5 liter with no cats, i shoot flames because the downpipe that connects from the turbo to the catback on the sti has no cats. so on sti's turbo spool depends on the downpipe and not the turbo cat back, however, without proper Engine Management, you get boost creeps. I dont know if that helps you or not but no cats = faster turbo spool. Where I live in Wisconsin, I know for sure my STI wouldnt pass emissions. I have 850cc injectors, blow off valve, no cats on any pipes, a free flowing headers, 250lp walboro fuel pump, Access Port II for my Engine Management system. gas burner..LOL. Ill gladly trade it for a v8 Esprit, anyone?
  6. Im 23, and I dont celebrate my birthday at since I was 5 years old. Never had a good reason to you know. but I think sex will do for me.
  7. lets look at this point of view in a macroeconomics view. what happens when people save money, eventually they spend it, just like in a few months the rebacte checks will come, thus increasing the $ spend per person into the economy, with the millions of people in the USA, means economic stimulation. $300: $50 on beer - $100 on hookeres - $100 on drugs - $50 on beer. there goes all my rebate money in 1 night
  8. just out of curiousty, excuse me for being naive and blunt, do aussies eat kangaroo?
  9. yes, i do understand what you are saying, this is my last year in college and i will be graduating with my BA in Computer Science (programming side). Very soon now i will be into the work force that drives the American Economy and will be paying taxes next to my loans . I do appreciate what the work force or more like the back bone of any country is doing by paying taxes to help fund many government projects and polocies. Even though we as a group (society) do not always agree on certain subjects, I think we do all feel a prejudices against one another or towards a certain group for their actions. a great example of this is like what you were saying about inidividuals who do not work and will get a refund check. The arguement here is stimulating the economy, we cannot deviate ourselves into a fallacy of pointing fingers and putting blames on each other. for the better good of the countries interest, i think we all should do as much as possible to keep our hopes and dreams alive, not just for ourselves, but our children and their childrens children. I know its impossible to do as we have lots of americans (not just americans) who do not work and live off wellfare checks and food stamps. Each situation, more like each individual cases, needs to be look at before we can pass judgement. If we just past judgement to others without understanding the situation, arent we just reverting back to oppression of the weak? Should we just oppress all handicap citizens because they cant work? I know there are alot of hard workers like you out there, and to me, i think that the harder you work the more money you deserve. Of course a farmer should reap his hard work on his crops, and it shouldnt be taken away by the government, but at the same time that the government takes a portion of the farmers crops, the government is protecting the farmer interest: capitalism, terrorism, rights of the constitution, and more.
  10. There is a good thing about being a student; you cant write off alot of stuff: Gas, Books, and Tuition.
  11. Politics and Opinions are a touchy subject to everyone. I respect your comments and appreciate your thoughts, however, I am a student in college, its expensive enough going to a private school and working in a factoring paying for my bills and gas and insurance and food, and i dont even make close to 3000 a year. 300 dollars to me can last me 2-3 months if i push it. As long as you work , i feel that you deserve it, of course i dont think you deserve it if you just work one day and quit your job.
  12. i thought 97 was the first introductioin of the v8?
  13. I didnt know they made S4 in 93. forget the S4 as they look like cup cakes, get yourself a real mans car.
  14. you can sign your title to me and i will register the car in my name in wisconsin. that should do u good, no emissions for the rest of your life, however u will have to have a WI license plate.. just send me $150 for the cost of the plate and sticker. EDIT: I have like 10 cars under my name that i dont even own these cars mostly its my friends that live in cities and states that need emission test. One of my friend has a 800hp supra, he took it to emission test, and failed horribly and called me up crying about how it did not pass emissions.
