  1. Can always get another wife !!!!!!!!!!! :)

    That's what I did 3 years ago, and I still do not regret it ! That's how it works :

    - get rid of the wife (although it'll cost you quite some, you have to have some sacrifices)

    - get yourself an Esprit

    - get yourself a new girlfriend, or try some before you choose

    It works :P !

  2. thanks, will look at adding an earth strap, did not find them too hard to get at used a 5.5mm long socket with an adjustable height rachet. (still i have double jointed fingers which does come in handy) ordered on friday so perhaps they will get here by the weekend

    be aware : the coil pack closest to the cabin is f*****g hard to unbolt, especially the lower bolt, since airco tubing is blocking access to the bolt

  3. Buddsy

    As if you had smelled it. First start up is planned for tomorrow.

    As I have promised I will post a sound sample and/or put a video in utube.

    So hold your horses, matey


    Woohoo :D

    Stefan : about the exhaust : is the diameter wide enough to blow 500 HP through ? (speaking about airflow, might be that the exhaust is the bottle neck now, but I might be wrong off course ... )

  4. monday evening we (Peter aka bosbon_be & I, well mostly Peter :) ) upgraded some things :

    - Denso iridium spark plugs

    - Magnecor KV85 performance spark leads

    - RC primary & secondary injectors (know a good source for them !)

    I chose this because it's an approved setup, used by Dermot.

    Wanted to install the MSD ignition coils as well, but it's hell to replace this, since a/c tubing is very much in the way ; we were running out of time, so we did not install them (yet). Anyone any ideas how to install them the easiest way ?

    Fired up, engine running nicely, feeling 'less raw', in practice I feel that I'm driving faster than it felt before (ie when I thought I was driving 90 km/h I was already doing 120 km/h)

    Had a small Freescan run (idling/cold start up), still need to do some when driving, but 1 thing I noticed : O2 sensor voltage is & stays around 0.94, but should be bouncing between 0 & 1 ? Or it is because car is just idling ?

    I'll send the Freescan log to Dermot (thanx Dermot for your technical support !) to have a glance.

    And a big thanx to bosbon_be, the best mechanic around :)

    // edit : some things to add :

    - Freescan quits often, can only let it run for a couple of min's then need to restart the program (running XP, serial cable)

    - the connector in the front doesn't work (I took the one that sits in a blind socket), no connection at all, the one in the back (close to battery) works

  5. Hi all,

    bought the manual online for Freescan, and had Freescan run (it's been a while ... )

    Did a scan when letting the car running idle and warming up, about all readings seem to be normal except for one :

    - O2 sensor voltage : should be between 0.3 (lean), above 0.5 is rich

    Mine is 0.8 ! :) , which means running very rich.

    What can I do about that ?

    I'm having following upgrades :

    - Larini Dual exhaust

    - #6 chip

    - ram air

    - K&N air filter

    Planning to install :

    - RC primary/secondary injectors

    - MSD ignition coils

    - Magnecor performance spark leads

    - Denso spark plugs

  6. waether's fine (in fact great, been a loooooong time !) in Belgium Stefan, I'll take it out this evening on the trip to work :harhar:

    Having some night shift, so need to get some sleep during the day :blush:

    btw Stefan : are you going to German's Lotus Club Season's opening meeting 1st of May ? I'll be there, guess bosbon as well

  7. Nice configuration !

    Here's my old one, guess must be around 10 years ago ...

    I made this (home-made !) Prometeia-Chieftec unit ; the lower side houses the freezing unit, which went to -50 degrees Celcius.

    That way, I could easily overclock my 1.6 Ghz Intel CPU steady to 2.9 GHz :)






    Talking hardcore overclocking ... :welcome:
