    Lotus Emira

    Its the new prototype VX 😂
  3. A link to the article, which may give you more insight considering your background. Apart from mounting angle of the actuator and maybe the shaft, which geartox replaced, as far as lotus are concerned I believe it is just software difference between the various evora versions. Some say there are internal revisions to the gearbox but Ive never seen anything concrete as to what else was done. nbg.pdf
  4. If it's not kicking up a fault then I would say you have no gas or the AC compressor clutch has failed. If the clutch was ok and the comp seized you would hear a squeal and them a fault code. I would be tempted to get it re gassed as a first step. You will then know it's gassed and if it's holding pressure. If it did fail and give a code, it would eventually clear but not engage the AC. If you have a fault code reader, clear the codes and try the AC again.
  5. Looks like a carbon tub so would say Evija.
  6. Theyre an auto box, so in all honestly theyre not rocket science (says me...a sparky 🤣). Youre not going to alter shift times without altering the software which im not sure anyone has done outside lotus. If you goole the asin gearbox there is an interesting article online all about it and its weekness's. one is 'flair' during cold gear change, which is what most aftermarket kits address. The parts arnt expensive but r&d can be.
  7. There is a chap in the exiges section tht has done it, didnt make a massive difference I dont think. I thought it was more to reduce slippage (especially in higher output cars) than gear change times?
  8. Just bare in mind there are 2 versions of the recaro, one with high seat bolsters as in the Evora and one with low seat bolsters as in some land rovers.
  9. The prototype one had wheel arch extensions, so probably no wider than the GTE, so should be fine.
  10. I can live in hope, I will just have to keeep on sluming it in my evora 🤣
  11. Has it been officially confirmed as a coupe only or just 'quoted' as?
  12. Renault 4 pot from the Alpine?
  13. The manifolds are the same for all evoras, or are you looking for the Toyota equivalent?
  14. Personally I wouldn't bother with the plack when you have a Swindon system! Surely it's just cheaper cut the joint and get a flange welded on. As far as I know, but I'm no expert, the manifolds on all evoras are the same, the only difference we as the downpipe as they changed where the join to the exhaust was. So its the downpipe and exhaust that have to match So if the Swindon system retains the factory manifolds then the down pipe you purchase can be either, which ever suits the joint to the plack the best. I may be wrong but I thought the Swindon system replaced the manifolds as well. So you would then need to buy new manifolds and downpipe which I imagine would start to get expensive!
  15. @Bruss Tarmac Terrorist would probabley know better as he did the conversion (suspension and gearbox etc) on his red GTE (not GT350) that still has its original engine. I think you are right in that they did originally have their own ecu but will run off the lotus ecu (but not at the 400+ bhp). I cant remember if TT changed the ecu in the end but was getting 385ish on his lotus ecu. Speaking to ES is a good shout and probabley easier than Strattons.
  16. So it is a Swindon exhaust not a Stratton one. Well in that case you have one of the original GTE engines then. So are you trying to identify the exact specification of the engine? In that case I can believe Stratton's don't know, as I presume they just got them in a create. Motorsport auctions did sell some which from memory listed the spec. If you want the spec then try Swindon engines. @Bruss isn't this what you've got in yours or have I just made that up?
  17. If your car is the car from the J Emma video, then they threw a load of GTE parts at it. Hence the Swindon engine and door cards etc. I am amazed that Stratton's can't confirm what they did? Are the exhaust and down pipes not Swindon units like the engine?
  18. Geeky, I'm sure I read somewhere they do a very similar/copy v6. I like the v6 and 500 bhp not £105k so much 🤣
  19. Ooo more rumours
  20. Yep there was an official fix, no I'm not joking, where you drilled holes in the boot floor. At least then any water that got in could get out. Worked a treat. You can try putting chalk on your seal and closing the boot, if thee are any areas that don't touch then it will be obvious.
  21. How long has it been doing it? First thing to try is to tighten the wheel nuts, that will cause a clicking, noticeable at low speed but will turn into a knocking over 100-150 miles.
  22. I've always started with lotus recommend cold pressures, but when the tyres are warm. Check them after each session as they may need adjusting. Gav
