  1. Thank you Mike, I own my Esprit V8 already for a long time but are not as knowledgable as you guys so excuse me for asking but who makes this double radiator and what are the cost of these? Just out of curiosity, why did they decide to make two separate radiators and not just one higher capacity for both systems? Is the coolant running through the charge cooler system not the same coolant running through the original system or is the extra radiator added to just create extra capacity?
  2. Hello Esprit V8 gentlemen, I (Christiaan S from NL) would also like to be added to the list of buyers for the V8 double charge cooler system. One question. Does the charge cooling system depend on the radiator? I recently installed an aluminium radiator from Wizard Cooling. Will that be a problem?
  3. It would be nice to have a reference of the estimated labour time it 'roughly' takes to do maintenance/repairs/replacements/modifications for some of the Esprit V8 specific tasks. It would help to budget for future maintenance/modifications and check invoices. I would like to know the labour for the following tasks : timing belts - engine rebuild - gearbox rebuild - new clutch - new radiator - new condensors - new brake discs and pads - new suspension - new fuel tanks - new exhaust. A rough estimate/range in hours is sufficient.
  4. I am also having difficulties finding 235/40/17 tyres. I have Toyo right now. Is 245/40/17 the next best alternative in size? What would be the effect of having a slightly wider front tyre? Could you compensate with tyre pressure?
  5. Thanks Derek, yes, you are correct, I made a mistake and cross referenced the ACDelco 214-1091/GM 15759044 with the wrong part. I am trying to find a cross reference and picture for Lotus part A082P4461F, the water valve!
  6. I would like two know if these two different Lotus V8 part numbers are actually the same item. A082P4461F (diagram 18.05-06) and A082L6210F (diagram 44.05-22)? ACDelco 214-1091 and GM 15759044 are crosse reference part numbers for the A082P4461F. Is A082L6210F the same part? They look very similar.
  7. After 15 years (OMG, time flies) I still own my 1999 Esprit V8 SE and I am still thinking of removing the passenger airbag and create a glovebox instead. I am not comfortable with having a 20+ year old airbag in my car. It will save weight and instead create some desperately needed space in the cabine. Anybody have the same thought?
  8. Like this one? It is a 1999 Lotus Esprit V8 SE in immaculate condition but a left hand drive! It was owned, driven and maintained by Lotus for most of its life. It got a new engine around 40.000 Km. The new engine has been revised. Car is running perfectly. I am considering selling but I think you want a right hand drive. BTW, I lived in Chiswick last year on Bath Road. Good luck finding the right car!
  9. I recently bought an AutoXRay EZ-Scan 4000 to get OBD II info on my 1999 Lotus Esprit V8. Connection works well and I can see the info on my screen, however some questions Is it correct to configure the unit under OBDII Generic? Is there any way to configure this unit for a Lotus V8 engine? When I try the O2 sensor the unit does not support this test. Same experience? Is there any point in upgrading the unit to enhanced OBD II features? Thanks Christiaan
  10. Vetronix cartridge for Lotus Esprit LOTUS 1989 ECM 'ESPRIT' Part number TK02370 Serial number 11050195 Never used because I never found a Tech 1 scanner
  11. Lotus Esprit Toolkit for sale on eBay
  12. I would seriously sell my esprit V8 SE and buy one!!
  13. I have one available for you if you can not find one. Let me know if you want it. I will sell it for GBP 50. It is the one with the AC.
