Esprit S2.2 From Uk To Italy

Recommended Posts

HI,

I'm in Italy and I have just bought a Lotus Esprit S2.2 1981 from UK.

I want to restore it as soon as possible, but I want to convert the engine to HC specifications.

So, if someone has info and tips about that I'll be very happy.

I need to know how many parts I must change and an estimate cost for the complete work.

I have seen the Lotusbits site, very good upgrade but someone know something about reliability?

Thanks for your Lotus passion!!

Giorgio

Hi Giorgio!

Welcome to the forum. Not sure how much it will cost you to convert the engine but I know that there are a few on here that have done it and I am sure they will be able to help!

Good luck and keep us posted about how it goes.

Thanks Angus,

I hope to receive a lot of post about it, even if I don't know when I will be able to start the restoration.

Anyway I must organize every details because in Italy it's impossible to find Lotus spares and info.

If someone knows where I can find a copy or used Esprit Parts list I think it could be a big help for me.

Thanks for loving lotus cars!!

Hi Giorgio

I "bought" that car off Ebay last year, but decided against it after the seller talked about the welding needed to the chassis tube adjacent the exhaust manifold (this was not stated in the Ebay advert!). A real shame as seeing a Gold S2 is what got me into Esprits in the first place...good luck with your restoration, please supply lots of pictures.

Hi Mark,

thanks for your reply.

Sorry, but I'm not sure to have understood what you wrote, what does it mean " A real shame as seeing a Gold S2 is what got me into Esprits in the first place.."?

Are you talking about my car or generally to the model?

I hope to receive more info about that because I'm very worry about my purchase.

Anyway, thanks.

Cor thanks mate! I'll be having a pop at that one; strange I didn't get a notification as I have a saved search for that sort of thing.

Sorry Giorgio don't mean to hijack your thread.

PS I still have some pictures of the car from a couple of years ago, send me your email address if you want them.
