    Good project.
    We did a Lotus Esprit a while ago which we modified with a pair of charge coolers in the back and by using a "Gizzmo" electronic boost controller we got loads more power from the engine. In fact it had so much torque it broke the gearbox. These are known for being weak anyway so the owner had it replaced with an uprated one with a straight cut 1st and 2nd gear ETC.
    Should be a quick car.
    As your local would love to see it on the rollers here.

    Hi ian, yes its on Emerald, Dave supplied a base map and i had the engine running on the engine stand 18 months ago so i know it runs but obviously needs setting up poperly.
    a little video



    Mark, your neighbours must love you !!!, prepared to start grinding at 11pm

    Atspeed, i knew these engines were detuned to 350HP because of the weak renault and citroen transaxles, but i,m using an auto so no worries there.
    Thats why people dont tune them!
    Also the turbo's are little T25's so spin up quick but probably wont make big boost and the cast ali pipes from the turb to plenum is seriously restricted, although ive made new ones for mine,
    would be interesting to hear what you were able to do to your customers car ??


    James, the turbo's are fitted

    Oh, just notice from video, that this engine is Twin Turbo from original, right?
    So, many things are already ready for tight place, right? What Lotus model is this engine from?

    from my research.... (i have a single T25 going on my set up) 200 - 250 is reported. so factoring in the pub talk factor lets say 225 per side..... MENTAL. absolute beast!

    Thanks guys, the engine is from a Lotus Esprit 1996

    These are only 350HP standard as they only had weak gearboxes to put behind them in the production cars

    The best thing is the torque curve as it is all in at 2000 revs through to 6500

    no silly peaky curves here !

    I will have a go on the strip just for fun, but i am really doing it for the challenge,

    I could chop out the inner wings, bulkhead etc to create space for everything but that would be easy and not look so impressive in the end.

    The same thing I have, just for fun and my self.
    And yes, V8 torque is awesome.
    Wish you very good luck and get the finish line soon.
