  1. Martin Your solution I am sure will have a positive result with many owners around the world. I am very interested to see a full service guide with photos and parts used. Your work in been noted and thank you for sharing your solution.
  2. This ABS switch has been a battle for a long time now.. When I has the chance to buy a few and help some others I did'nt and now they are all gone!! Its so crazy to think you can loose your car for a switch that does not exist any more. Is there anyway we can bypass this ABS crap!?
  3. See you all @ lotusesprit.com.au

  4. Steve WOW this is a dream of mine to see a few Esprit together like that especially in Melbourne. Hope we get enough interest in this part of the town to do the same. Just in case someone from Melbourne would like to start the same please contact me on [email protected] PS: It will also be nice to list any cars from your trip that are not register with the Australian Esprit registry to contact me on the same email as I would love to display them on the web as we have with yours. Tony
  5. Here is mine with memory which provides the lowest vacuum and the max boost during the trip. http://www.lotusesprit.com.au/s4project/boostg.jpg
  6. Dave I have done this work testing almost all chips available with the stock turbo before I replave to the improved ball bearing unit. My advice is that if your turbo is healty dont change it!!!! If all work good with your car you should get the power you are after for up to 10 seconds defore the temp catches up with the unit. If you have changed the fuel pump and the secondary injectors you can go to chip #6 red hot otherwise go for the #5. I have done dyno many runs on my car with all these mods stage by stage which you can view at www.lotusesprit.com.au .. if you need more help please email me and good luck! PS: to produce the power you should have every part of the car should be working 100% dont just blame the turbo. Some times I wish I had my original unit back since the responce was fantastic as per the dyno runs !!!
  7. I agree with the note above its will not be worth it if you are not prepered to do going though some more mods to see the effect. I have done this on mine and dyno tested before and after with no real big change. The change came on some extra mods which I apply and the best of all was the exhaust system. My notes can be found here lotusesprit.com.au in case you need more info. On the other hand avery little clean up you can do will help if you add them all together you may see thesome results. If I was you I will start with the fist two mod stages on my pages before pulling anything else apart... HINT: Be careful playing with the turbocharger!!!!
  8. Dave, This sounds more like an electrical fault or something could be wrong with the fuel sensor inside the tank. Start working on the connection of the fuel before looking inside sensor insoide the tank or even the back of the gauge. You may require a servise manual for this to make your life easier. Is sound like a earth issue to me.
  9. Thanks mate will do !!
  10. Love them if you can contact me please [email protected] Tony
  11. I got non genuine rubbers for my S4 locally and they look the same as the original. If you get stuck let me know and I will ship them out to you Contact me on [email protected]
  12. Make sure you clean the terminals of the switch when you do inspection. I had the same issue and the only fault I found was dirt on the electical contact of the switch. Good luck! PS: I believe the lights will not come on when you take the two pole wire off the switch. If you do this you need to short the wires together to duplicate the close ciruit the switch does so be carefull of your fault finding prosess between the mechanical and electical system.
  13. Hans I have just completed with all many of the many of the upgrades on my S4 performance on the duno as I went with the changes. Happy to help with any information you need. I would be very carufull with the choice of turbo if you go that way. See here www.lotusesprit.com.au email me from this site if you need info Tony
  14. I can say that the diffrence is small in performance maybe 2 to 3 HP however the sound is notisible on the 2.2 ltr cars. I am not sure about the V8 yet!!
  15. Will do.... Thanks guys You all have save the day!!! Really appreciated!!
