  1. Hi everyone, Does anyone out there know where I might find a BIN file from a 1989 NonSE Delco Injected ECM/ECU? Also trying to track down an xdf file for it as well... Just to clarify, this isn't the four connector SE ecu, but the 3 connector unit with two black connectors and a single yellow one. Any help is appreciated! Thanks, Pete

  3. Those are bushings for suspension arms and such on later (post 85) cars, correct? I'm looking for the shock stem or the bushing on the Bilstein shock itself (The suspension configuration that utilized the trunnion vertical link, etc...) (Off topic: Also aren't those prices insanely high compared with alternatives through SJS and others?) I'm comparing it with the prices I saw on Poly items for the earlier (pre 85) cars...but everything poly was going to be quite a bit less than one of those items by themselves...or not too far off... I don't mind paying more to help support the cause if t
  4. Spoke to Bilstein and they don't have any part #'s related to bushings for Lotus shocks. They mentioned if it was an OE shock, they literally supply the shock to Lotus, and everything else (all bushings) are in the hands of Lotus. Their only recommendation was checking with someone like Energy Suspension for a potential poly part... Pete
  5. Does anyone know any part numbers or general availability of replacement Bilstein front shock bushings for a 1984? (Bottom one with metal well as the two rubber bushings on top)? I wasn't sure if this was all that unique, or were just so 'standard' that they were pretty much everywhere. I have mine off the car and wanted to refresh them while they were apart. I see a lot of places like summit motorsports in the US with Bilstein shock bushings, but they have a general picture of an hourglass bushing used in about a third of their bushing listings...with various descriptions l
  6. Thanks for the info everyone - Ok, makes sense on the flasher unit/LED situation. I may just swap the stuff back. The dash was really barely much better with the LED illumination (tried various wide spread bulb designs)...about the only thing that was improved was the square warning lights and the AC/heater controls (which are now almost too bright as it's vaguely showing through the control bezel's black background). The round gauges were just as dismal as before. I'm literally thinking of putting a led strip on the binnacle overhang, just so I can see these things. And that's coming fro
  7. I was curious if anyone's been ambitious and replaced bulbs on their Esprit with LEDs, and whether they've run into any issues with operation because of it. For example, on my 84, I noticed that if you have an incandescent #194 bulb on the turn signal, it works fine. If you put a LED in its place, the turn signal indicator will only flash when you switch in one direction. Reversing the bulb will allow the turn signal indicator on the cluster to work for the opposite direction, but not both. I've been going through my vehicle, trying to get everything working correctly, now that I've pre
  8. Ok, thanks for posting those... hmmm. I may be set now, after all. Time for a test run If it doesn't work, I may try swapping in the old 3 wire sensor, just to see what happens... Pete
  9. Thanks or the suggestion - I had not this time around, so I disconnected it overnight and ran a test again this morning or about a minute and a half. Basically it seemed to hit cold loop after 45 seconds now...does that sound about right? Still not real clear on how this is supposed to work (or what is directing what)... is the ecu supposed to measure the engine temp and not pay attention (aka, go closed loop) until it reaches a certain temp? Or is it some sort of timed process...(guessing it wouldn't be, as it's directly tied to a variable engine 'warm up' process).... or is the process o
  10. Here's the other 15704 o2 sensor...for some reason the forum kept mixing my photo order up..
  11. Just got my 13030...same issue. Goes right into closed loop at a cold start. My freescan report shoes this at the moment. I'm sort of at the same question - what triggers the closed loop? I may put my original 3 wire o2 sensor back in and see what happens... 13030 Graph is first... 15704 Graph is below that
  12. In running freescan, what I'm seeing with 15704 is that my car goes into closed loop immediately upon start. My car doesn't have the connector that matches 13030, so i'll try crimping it this time around. I've seen mixed info about the soldering/crimping route...never quite understood that, so any info you may know would be helpful. Pete
  13. What is technically genuine nowadays for this item? The original was a Bosch 0 258 003 022 sensor that was retired in 2000, according to Bosch it was a Volvo part. Is it now Bosch 13030? Pete
  14. Hi everyone, I'm working on my car's shakedown (just got everything back together and it finally runs again). Question, however... on the Delco system, what role does the O2 sensor having during warmup...or what does the ECU look at to determine when the vehicle is warmed up and to start reading the O2 sensor? The reason I'm asking... I have a flip-flopping problem at the moment: I just got my engine back together and it starts up great ... but after it warms up, the engine cuts out completely and I literally have to pull aside and give it time to cool down before I can drive agai
  15. Thanks Jonn... I'm stil keeping an eye out for specifically that one photo, as it's a build of a turbo esprit (same body style/era/color as mine)... Pete
