  1. Solved ! it was the O2 sensor. Fitted a lotus spec one and it’s all resolved. Thanks for all the help Al
  2. Thanks - I put the non lotus O2 sensor in about 4 years ago. Have ordered a Delphi lotus one. Will update ….
  3. Hi Had been sitting for about 2 months ..... Battery got quite flat but not completely dead. Runs perfectly for about 10 minutes and then runs rough , stalls and if restarted while hot idles rough and stalls. No CEL / No battery light Leave it to cool and it great again for 10 minutes...... Is not overheating - 80-85C I am wondering about coils / leads / IAC valve....Something is playing up when hot...can a fuel pump issue do this despite being able to maintain high revs first 10 minutes? How can I check what the IAC should be doing with freescan ? Anything else to check? I did put 100 octane in it about 6 months ago....I know that stuff can go bad pretty quick...but doesn't seem consistent with that
  4. Anyone got one fur sale? Will need to ship to New Zealand
  5. Kooked a 1st to 2nd Now significant grinding when changing down from 3rd to 2nd. Some grinding from 1st to 2nd. I think I have lost teeth off 2nd gear / damaged synchro ? Wil pull box - if it is as I suspect and only this how easy is it to change the second gear / synchro ? thanks !
  6. Gidday yep - the messages were going to junk ! have now PM’d lotuslover I see it has been flashed for a CC V8 - hopefully it has got IC plugs installed so I can just pop others in ?
  7. Oh - tried again and have sent a PM. Thanks again Bibs
  8. Thanks Bibs. Tried that - it’s not working comes up with “ terminal error “ which sounds exciting. posted in hope the OP will see my post and contact me. al
  9. Hi i would like to purchase but can’t seem to message you I am in NZ but have an Australian bank account that might be useful - please text / call or WhatsApp +64 210519518
  10. Yes It’s the video - it sounds a lot, lot better in real life but I can’t kid myself that it sounds better than a v8 / 10 / 12. I have run almost every set up - straight pipe , small bullet resonator, twin resonators 2 inch , 3 inch etc - in my opinion the best sound is what I run now with twin straight resonator and a 3 inch exhaust - and the car runs so much better. I found a straight system used to be too much of the unpleasant notes in the cabin I will post some more vids - (that one was the only one I had and more to show some flames!)and hopefully others will send some in too The other thing I really like about my allunox set up is the exhaust comes out even both sides
  11. Here is a video - of course sounds better in real life but still lets the car down a bit i.e. car still “looks a lot better than it sounds” S4S , 3 inch stainless , twin resonators, allunox manifold. 7A9A38D4-07A9-41BB-B1C1-B47F6B7120E9.MP4
  12. Hello I just had this kit fitted in NZ to my S4S - just one question - every single time I push the pedal or release it the pump runs - it’s very noisy and runs for a second each time - is this normal? Have I got the vacuum too high ( it’s at -10 psi which is about 20 inch mercury) It’s pretty intrusive around town. 62901942622__95535804-7DC2-4C5E-8CA1-AF8530C7F29A.MOV
  13. Hi easy to check the the gauge - find the sender ( it’s a brass sensor on the big aluminium pipe in the engine bay just under the highest point of the timing belt in the left hand side as you look into the bay ) then with ignition on but car not running unhook the wire and ground it to something ( like the pipe ) and the gauge should go to far right. if it does not your gauge is sticking. if it is not the gauge you probably have an incorrect sender - it’s impedance to temperature is too high. If this is the case order the right one.......
  14. Hi sorry - I reckon 1 and 1/2 threads - it’s on there ok. But to be honest I am very tired of this system. Going with Ian’s servo brake kit Oh and also - I just used a rubber o-ring.
  15. I put the adjustable seats as low as possible ..... still seems a bit high but maybe will settle with some mileage ....? It’s about 4cm from maximum tyre diameter to the flare.
