I called to buy in my own but wow. Too rich for my blood right now. I tried to buy in the group buy but it was too late

Group buy really doesn’t reduce the cost that much - it’s a superb piece of kit and well worth buying 👍

Without doubt its great but it can save me easy $600 US. To me its worth the wait. If it was a couple of yrs ago, it would have been installed by now but hard times have hit so I have to be a little more careful of my spending

Hi Guys , I can ask the question ,all can say is the bigger the numbers the more we can bring down the price.

I received a quote from Alunox for a complete system for a G. Quite more than I expected!

Have these gone up massively in price or something? I know the G ones were a little bit more.

 Hello and please let me introduce myself, my name is Ben and I work at Alunox as the sales and stock controller. I thought I would write a quick post with the current details and prices of the Esprit parts we make. Hopefully this will give some clarity to the pricing structure and make it easier for everyone to see what’s available!

 As I’m sure you all know these are a fantastic bit of kit! Leon and the team here work extremely hard to make these systems to a very very high standard.

 To give you a little insight into the sort of work we do, we regularly make systems and manifolds for ex F1 cars, current and classic race and rally cars, GT40’s, AC Cobras, Lister Jaguars, LMP2 and 3 cars, Titanium systems for V8 Hayabusa’s, BAC Monos etc. We make as many of our parts and components on site as possible to ensure the best quality. Yes, our systems aren’t cheap, but they represent fantastic value for money when you consider the time, knowledge and skill that goes into them as well the quality of the materials used.

 

Below is the current price list of parts we have available for the Lotus Esprit:

 

Stevens manifold (internal wastegate) incl fitting kit, £1350.

2.5” system with twin exit pipes and decat pipe £750.

3” system with twin exit pipes and decat pipe £850.

 

G manifold (external gate) incl fitting kit and Turbosmart wastegate £1950.

2.5” system with twin exit pipes and decat pipe £850.

3” system with twin exit pipes and decat pipe £950.

200 cell sports catalytic converter option £400 for either Stevens or G models.

 

Larger charge cooler, 3 times more core volume than the standard system!   £1100

 

All prices quoted are plus VAT, packaging and shipping.

 

If anyone has any questions, please feel free to contact me directly on 01978 851100 or email me, [email protected]

 

Many thanks to everyone on the forum for you continued support especially Mark and Bibs!

Just what we needed :thumbsup: a nice bit of clarity.

Ive fitted these to both my cars - and they are superb and dead easy to fit. They make a very real difference as Dave @CHANGES has so very well documented on here

Hi Guys, I've been in touch with Ben about another group buy for the Esprit 321 Stainless Steel Manifold if anyone would be interested. The prices Ben posted earlier in this thread are still current.

 These are the details of a group buy if we get the interest

  • 30 units in total - mixed G Car and Stevens 
  • Fitting kit - All gaskets and Stainless nuts included
  • G Car GB price including TurboSmart external wastegate £1650 normal list price £1950
  • Stevens car manifold - £1150 normal list price £1350
  • Rear system G Car 2.5” - £650 normal list price £850
  • Rear System Twin Exit Stevens car 2.5” £600 normal list price £750 - based on min 10 units
  • Rear System Twin Exit Stevens car 3” £780 normal list price £950 based on min 10 units
  • Special requests for T4 flange for turbo upgrade can be included in this GB, I will get the GB price on request

Also the Charge Coolers can be in a separate group buy

  • Standard charge cooler £500 normal list price £750 - based on min 10 units
  • Uprated charge cooler £700 normal list price £1100 - based on min 10 units

I will get more info on the standard unit as this is new, I believe it has the same dimensions as the original charge cooler.

All prices are plus VAT and postage

If you have an interest in any of the above let me know and I can create a Group Buy thread. For anyone considering the Alunox 321 SS manifold for the first time, they have been around now for about 10 years with no reported failures.

I would be interested in either or both, though I probably cant do both at the same time.

Stevens - Stock Turbo

Charge cooler  - Uprated - depending on the specs on the new stock size.

Mark,

 

Could you post some pictures and specs for both?

  • Standard charge cooler £500
  • Uprated charge cooler £700

Thanks

I would be interested in Stevens manifold, 2.5" exhaust and sports CAT. 

(unfortunately I can't justify a charge cooler right now when what I really need is a new radiator)

Found this page for info, but don't know how up to date it is

Hi Guys,  the charge cooler has changed slightly from the link you have there , its now more compact 

CC.thumb.JPG.f8966761342839cb4d0e5be2a796f68c.JPG

It is about 3 time the volume of the original and maintains the same flow layout, so fitting is quite easy. The water hose connections come at the standard size which i think is around 16mm.

However Alunox can supply with larger ones as shown here at 19mm . I can only speak from my own experience , it did hold up well with new BorgWarner 6258-G turbo on the dyno running higher flow and boost.

I don't have a photo of the original unit as yet but I will try and get one. The standard unit will be a direct replacement for the original, built to the same dimensions.
