Exhaust sooting up - Engine & Ancilliaries/Gearbox - The Lotus Forums Jump to content


Recommended Posts

Had the 1000 mile first service about 2 weeks ago on my 2012 Evora S and have just noticed that the exhaust appears to be sooting up. Attached a picture and I ran my finger down the middle of the lower rim to show the degree of soot building up. Anything I should be thinking about or is this normal / OK?

 

Thanks for any advice / insight.

The N/A soots up also, but less. I like to polish it from time to time to restore its original splendor. Takes a minute and looks so much better

It runs rich to keep the piston crowns cool under high boost iirc.

Used :thumbsup: with 8K on the clock in 2 years but only about 1K on the engine/g'box etc. :sorcerer:  so somebody else had the 'fun' of running it in.
