  1. Quiz question, there seems to be one car missing from this selection of cars at Topgear? Lamborghini Countach, Ferrari Testarossa, Lotus Esprit, Porsche 911, .........?
  2. New decision making, first new injectors. Decided on Bosch EV14 by deatschwerks. Should be OK for up to 330 to 350 hp.
  4. Trying to translate the wiring diagrams from the manual to a schematic. Just not sure if it is correct. Any thoughts?
  5. Installed the PNM "Lotus Esprit Front 323mm Disc Upgrade" with grooved disks. Absolutely fantastic! Very good bite and control now. Next upgrade damper and springs. Just checked with the local dealer but het can't source the parts! Are they obsolete now? Pns: LOTAC05404 LOTAC05413 LOTAC05405 LOTAC05418
  6. First challenge is to create a signal from the cam position. I have searched the web for some examples but so far nothing found. Any thoughts on how and which parts to use to create a cam position sensor?
  7. Nice! What turbine inlet flange size is applied. If T4 is possible EFR 6258-G would be perfect.
  8. Final decision made on the ECU. We selected the EFi Euro 4, by Ole Bull racing. Will take some time to get it installed.
  9. Yes I need to address detailing as well. Get the turbo and GT3 sticker on the side of. Looks like Porsche stickers. But thinking of applying the original GT3 side stickers. Not sure if they were ever applied to black cars in a contrast colour.
  10. Now next phase, Updating the interior, found a GT3 steering wheel. But no seats yet. And at later stage a programmable ECU, (Considering Motec M84 or EFi Euro4) Based on some earlier comments the GT3 seats are not found to be practical for long journeys. But the V8 seats are definitely unacceptable in terms of support, they are just to slippery. One solution can be changing the center section of the seat with alcantara or whatever material is used also for the roof and some of the door trim.
  11. I don't think the S1 body would fit the V8 chassis. Also I think a 4cyl suits the Esprit better as the V8 is to heavy. If you take a late S3 turbo, and take of side skirts, change the bumper, rear lights, spoiler, wheels and interior for S1 spec would you end up with a car looking like a S1 or S2? Then as a last nice addition make some S2 wheels in 16" by imagine wheels.
  12. Just got inspired by watching a episode of "Drive" visiting the Singer shop in LA on Youtube. Now I'm inspired to investigate how a "Singer" Esprit should look. Making a Esprit on the Singer motto "if you are allowed only one car (Lotus/Esprit) what should it be?" A car fit for a grand tour, trackday and daily usage. My considerations, Esprit S1 style body with Turbo HC chassis and engine underneath. Engine tuned to 250hp and 15"or 16" S2 style wheels. Padded simple roll cage. Target weight of 1000kg. Maybe as a easy route change a turbo body to S1 style, Or would a Esprit just not fit such a style, maybe the futuristic body should be left unchanged. And only 60's style metal cars suit the "Singer" treatment. For inspiration;
  13. Is this real?
  14. A bit late, but as promised a vid with sound of the new setup.
  15. Looking for a new window relay for a Esprit GT3 pn. pn. C082M6531F Alternative parts also welcome.
  16. Got one from some US car, now trying to take it apart. Next step select a new stand alone ECU.
  17. Help, just blew up the window relay. can't find a new window voltage module anywere pn. C082M6531F, everywhere obsolete. Also I have being looking for a alternative but don't know where else used. And as it is obsolete I think it might be Esprit specific. Only brand reference is BMI moulded in the plastic. Any thoughts.
  18. Thanks Derek, Started looking for the Oldsmobile / Pontiac parts. Only these are equally rare in the Netherlands.
  19. Next job is upgrading the ECU. Now considering the PUK Esprit GT3 ECU, but I think going to a full bespoke setup would be better, as also the turbo and exhaust system are changed. Therefore looking for a old Esprit ECU (Non working) to use as a canister to house a stand alone system. (MoTeC, Liferacing, OBR, megasquirt, not decided yet)
