Re: Happy Birthday S1 Exige

That is a fine looking Exige sir (also biased as another New Aluminium owner) but they do look great in this colour as much as I love the bold colours the silver and black combo works a treat. Still original shocks on mine too which look to be in a great nick - how much of a workout can they get on ...

Re: S1 exige value

Oh my that is so horrible to see, like you say though a good perspective on the whole thing is consider the positives of not being physically injured. Good luck with the search for your next car be it S1 Exige or something different. Who knows there may be some good example Exiges out there that an ...

Re: Throttle travel - seeking 100% !!!

By way of update for any interested party (may be of use for future reference). New TPS installed. TPS reset procedure followed to calibrate to ECU (seems the ECU is a little slow to respond to new sensor installed and resetting throttle range). A couple of attempts and values appeared normal. Plugs...

Re: Throttle travel - seeking 100% !!!

Klaus - excellent advice as always. That does make sense that the TPS is not in sync with the throttle shaft movement. My TPS was replaced last year but no harm ordering another to be sure. I hadn't appreciated the reset process and of course doing this with OBD reader connected will help ensure the...

Re: Throttle travel - seeking 100% !!!

Thanks for that guys. I will look into it a little further. That said I do wonder if it is a limitation of the OBD reader that I have which isn't detecting a small throttle movement from idle. I say this as I pressed the accelerator really gently to pick up the the revs by 300/400rpm (which is recog...

Throttle travel - seeking 100% !!!

I've been tinkering with the Lotus over the last few days and with the kind assistance of Klaus now have nicely balanced throttle bodies having replaced the adjustable balance screw for a longer one and tensioned with a spring. Disconnected the IACV, adjusted the idle then the new balancing screw an...

Re: Air intake hose

Yep one of many projects during lockdown, I now have the air filter located at the air scoop end away from the airbox and now directed towards the air intake courtesy of good advice on here and thanks to cable ties. That and sorting a loose throttle linkage in the pedal box has produced some most we...

Air intake hose

Folks

Interested to know any tips for setting up the the air intake pipe so that it's directed as close as possible to the air intake scoop. Mine tends to hang to the right a bit. May be minimal gains but I prefer the idea of fresh air pulled directly in.

Re: New owner #001

Brilliant, It's great to hear these cars bought to then be used as intended. I was in touch with the original owner of my S1 Exige and he told me "drive it like you stole it, you'll get the best out of it that way!" Of course keep them well serviced and looked after, then use. There is motorsport DN...
