Lotus esprit S1 restoration
1976 serial number 127G esprit being restored to original condition after
25 years in the lock up garage. The chassis had been removed and
The original engine has been totally overhauled and has been returned to
Hope you find this video interesting.
" We went to quite a bit of trouble to get this engine out of our Lotus and
that's because we've got several jobs to do and it's a lot easier when it's
on the bench. Now the most obvious, was this manifold here, because of the
crack it sounds like a tank, so we're gonna change that, but also this cam
belt here. Because the history of the car, we're not really sure of when
the cam belt was last changed, and because it could do an awful lot of
damage if it was to break, we're gonna change that as a matter of course."
" How much damage? Well, if the belt snaps and the valves smash into the
pistons, you're looking at thousands of pounds to fix it."
" First, I align the distributor, crank and drive shaft to top dead center
by lining up the helpful markings on the pulleys."
" Undo the tensioner and the old belt slides off easily, to be replaced by
a brand spanking new one for only 33 pounds. Mike will be happy."
" The belt's back on, so what I'm doing now is just rotating the engine by
hand ah, a complete. Revolution."
" Okay,um, I'm just gonna trying to line up against the top dead center,
just to see, make sure all our marks still line up. Which they do, which
means, I've very successfully replaced our cam belt."
" Now it's time to tackle the Exhaust."
" Gotta take this manifold off, but the problem is, you can see, these
rusty nuts on the rusty studs holding it onto the engine. So, I'm gonna get
some heat on these guys, see if I can expand the nut. And wind it off ever
so gently. But wish me luck, it's gonna be ever so tricky. This is such a
fiddly job it's kind of ridiculous actually, I think if it had been on the
car, it would have taken probably half a day to do, but at least this way
it's only taken maybe half an hour or so. The good new is, the manifold is
now off. The very heavy bit of scrap metal, and I'll now be replacing that
with a nice new Exhaust system."
" The surface needs to be carefully cleaned or the new manifold gasket
won't seal properly. It really does pay to be thorough. I've now prepared
the head ready for our new manifold but I'm not gonna be replacing it with
another cast iron unit, because although these are quite good for a cheap
in fact, for mass production, they're not so good for performance and at
the end of the day, we've got a performance vehicle. So what I'm going to
be using, is an after-market, stainless steel tubular manifold, that's made
up of lots of individual pipes that have got a nice uniform diameter, so
the gas flows out much much better, which means ultimately we get better
performance and for me, it's also easier to fit."
" I'm not gonna fully tighten up these nuts yet. First, I'm gonna offer up
the stainless steel collector and make sure it all fits together. The
collector will be properly attached later when the engine is back in the
car. And since the engine is out, I may as well give it a quick service. So
I'm changing the spark plugs, replacing the oil filter and sticking in a
new air filter."
Lotus Esprit top speed fast & furious
Some guy in Florida nearly buries the needle in his lotus esprit. 4
cylinder lotus with a stock turbo and a
stock chargecooler. This is a "1994 lotus esprit S4". He let off the
accelerator at 168 mph when the built-in radar detector went off. Too much
sun reflection on highway, otherwise great video. At 1:10, he slows down
for traffic---watch past the 2 minute mark when he really gets on it.
Camera he used was the Drift HD 170. Small dial in center is the turboBoost guage. To the right is the speedo, to
the left is the tach. Bottom right is the temp. Bottom left is oil
pressure. You have to watch the turboBoost guage to see when he really
gets on it (small center dial). When it is halfway, he is just cruising at
120-130 mph, when it goes full dial, then he is getting on the accelerator.
And no he isn't trying to destroy the transaxle in the 1/4 mile, he is
cruising to a top speed and being cautious!

The World's Fastest Lotus? - /TUNED
Frank Profera has spent six years making his Lotus go faster, stop shorter, and corner harder.
Though it only has to move around 2,150 lbs, Frank's Lotus makes 680 wheel
horsepower with a
twin-charged 1.8L engine; giving it a better power-to-weight ratio than
Mario Andretti's Formula One Lotus. It's an ongoing project that may never
be finished, because of Frank's never-ending obsession with speed. We had
to take it for a ride.
