  1. Sorry to see such bodging on my old girl - but I am sure it will be engineered much more effectively when it goes back in... I am now awaiting what the deal is with the engine itself and starting to order some parts. All such fun! Thanks as ever to the guru Sparky for fighting his way to this point... 

  2. Thank you so much for looking Andy - it is very much appreciated - I would like to see this cave of lotus delights on day - let me know if anything does turn up!... And yes, I am already funding a special new therapy course for Sparky entitled 'Deviations from Lotus factory specification - a metaphysical exploration'.

  3. Well some of you may have read about my little, um, incident with my S3’s high compression engine… I am now in need of a replacement cam carrier or cam box for the exhaust side. And also ideally a cam shaft as well… cam carrier / box is the most necessary. This is the later cam box design. If anyone can help so I can get my baby back on the road, please get in touch! Thanks so much, Henry 

  4. Exhaust was purchased and fitted a decade or so ago from one of the usual suspects. I think it was mainly fitted as the engine was out. It has been off once before for a head rebuild (around 8 years ago I think) - head rebuild could well be part of the issue now! - and it was never quite right after refitting. It leaked etc. and various other challenges as Sparky mentioned. I loved the noise it made though! For me I have always wanted to go back to a standard twin pipe outlet in anycase - so will prob go for another more easy to fit and remove system. Needless to say, last time it was removed and re-fitted, copper coated nuts etc were supplied by me but not used…
