Komo-Tec Exige S EX460


TBD

Recommended Posts

If you look  on the center grille on the front with the komotec 430 kit there should be the chargecooler radiator in front of the normal radiator air  flow.

As noted by a good lotus tuner in Italy that is not the best placement for the chargecooler radiator as it will take away some air flow to the main radiator and slightly heat the air that go to it.

I think those few degrees should not be a problem but it should explain why the engine temperature is a little different.

You could if you want change that komotec chargecooler radiator for the oem lotus parts of the exige 410 and 430

Interesting feedback. The radiator of the chargecooler on the 430 CUP is mounted like that https://www.deroure.com/diagrams.asp?MAK=1&MDL=42&TBL=11606&SMA=0&SMO=0&ST=&SC=0

 

I am always interested to improve the cooling in order, I think, to increase the hardware life.

It seems that KT has just updated the offer :

only one model available with FAN kit included

 

seems to be the same than the SL one https://www.seriouslylotus.com/pro-alloy-exige-v6-radiator (only this one is compatible with V6 range)

In August I drove my new Sport 350 EX460 Vivid Green Lotus first time in Zandvoort at 36° and unfortunately two times the water temperature exceeded 100° and I had to take a break.... (no harm done)

I was advised to switch off the AC which helped to keep the water temperature at 96° - good advice but a sweaty experience.....

So, preparing my Lotus for the 2021 trackday season two weeks ago KomoTec assembled the bigger radiator - I hope I'll help to keep the water temperature below 100° under any condition....

Additional they assembled the "Uniball Upright-Bushing-Kit „KT-Track“ - https://www.komo-tec.com/en/lotus-exige/mk3-toyota-v6350380/suspension/671/uniball-upright-bushing-kit-kt-track-for-exige-v6?c=521
