Engine Rebuild

Recommended Posts

I have just had to take the engine out of my S3 Esprit Turbo and it is going to require a full engine rebuild.

Has anyone got any recommendations of who to send it to to carry out this work?

There are lots of good specialists like Pete at PNM, Steve at SJ, Gerald at GST, Mike at Lotusbits, all are decent people so worth chatting and see what they quote.

The Forum has some superb people if you read the various posts who can recommend or help. I found Dave Lisle a font of knowledge when building mine just as a starter.

John Douglas was a fantastic guy but very sadly passed away 😢

Good luck and hope you are up and running again soon.

Nice colour for a turbo by the way 👍🏻

Dave :)

Oooh that was cruel!

To be fair, Fabian has encountered a problem, with something he wasn't aware was a problem (the follower), so I hope he takes that comment in jest rather than a cruel attack which I don't think it was meant as.

Pete at PNM is incredibly knowledgeable about these engines and has done a complete rebuild on mine.

i Was more than happy with the cost and the quality of work as I visited a few times while it was being done.

i was pondering doing it myself as I’ve built a few engines over the years, but I’m so glad I didn’t as I wouldn’t have been nearly as thorough.

@top-plumberreally knows his stuff and would do an ace job of an engine rebuild.  Dunno if you're available for this kind of work, Wayne?

Kind words Gary✌️
I was available before Christmas for about 6 weeks as I was between contracts. 
Been picked up for another 18 months work Building Flats in Fulham. Not as much fun as building 910s in my workshop. 
all the afore mentioned engineers would do a brilliant job. 
@Sparky is first on the list though. 


Suspension, brakes, chipped, chargecooler rad and pump,injectors,ignition coils and leads, BOV, highflow cat and zorst, Translator and tie rods, Head lights, LEDs to tail lights and interior,Polybushes to entire front end, Rad fans, rad grill, front end refurb with aluminium spreaderplates and galvanised bolts.

Thank you for all the recommendations I am talking to a few people you have mentioned and I will let you know when the wheels are turning again.

Cheers

I used Mike at Lotusbits for my 84 turbo rebuild last year. I would recommend any of the well known companies but make it somewhere you can get to. Lotusbits was on my way to work and I ended up popping in there a lot to discuss options / issues.

good luck
