  1. I always thought the original Elite was really modern The one I drove though seemed to have the dash wrap more into the door, if I remember right... Then I also got to sit in the 2010 Elite. I did like all the little details.
  2. Forgot to post the new little guy Ollie.
  3. JAE in California just had those remade. They look good. Give them a call.
  4. It's likely that your ECU is fried... It's good that they are cheap to replace. Do Not sell or give away or throw away your MEMCAL cartridge!!! That is worth it's weight in gold, and you need it for your new ECU. That MEMCAL is Lotus Esprit specific! The ECU wires should look more like this. SO maybe it's worth it to tray and get your wires figured out before plugging in a new ECU.
  5. Start by fixing that MAP sensor elbow, and make sure there are no leaks for that MAP sensor! That alone will cause really poor running at idle, stalling, etc..
  6. Here you go. Welcome to The Lotus Forums! https://www.thelotusforums.com/forums/forum/368-europa/
  7. The o-rings are 14mm. I bought a cheap injector cleaning kit on ebay for $9 that snaps onto an injector. I also wired up a cable that clips onto a battery and uses a pushbutton and relay to activate the injector for short bursts. I also actually found that transmission flush does a better job of cleaning out the injectors. Much better than injector cleaner.
  8. Sport 300... And the Angelina Jolie Nicolas Cage purple Diablo.
  9. Surprised you haven't mentioned Turbulent Jet Ignition https://www.enginelabs.com/news/f1-tech-what-is-turbulent-jet-ignition/
  10. That electric thing in the foam block is the vacuum pump for the cockpit heater controls.
  11. I've diagnosed and replaced 4 fuel injectors in a parking lot with the Esprit about 50 miles from home, and a friend took 4 fuel injectors out of his X180-R and drove 72 miles each way to bring them to me...
  12. I'm not sure if your 93.5/S4? (usually the 93.5 SE is USA only) and the S4 is the later rounder body style, has the same ball joint as my 89SE. Looks like the later cars had a different wiper arm assembly and ball joint at some point.
  13. on my 89 SE, the socket was a plastic piece that was riveted to the metal arm, and surrounded with a hoop of metal. It should pop off easy, but the plastic will be brittle. As you saw, since you messaged me, mine broke when I first bought my SE in 2000 (first day owning the car) so I made that metal replacement. These days you could also probably try a 3D printed version! I have the .STL files if you need them.
  14. XJR-15 had the shifter in the same location
  15. Funny enough... Lotus borrowed my Esprit in January for asbestos testing. They were only testing the door assembly. Lotus had the paperwork that proved their cars didn't have asbestos, but they were being sued, along with pretty much all other manufacturers, so they had to have an independent lab do the testing. And they used my car in Colorado.
