Which oil filter?

Hi,

What oil filters do you supercharged S2 guys use? Part numbers as well please!

Standard Toyota one or a higher capacity one due to the higher power than what Toyota put through these engines?

Got a couple of track days coming up and doing an oil change before hand.

Thanks!

Re: Help identify my exhaust please!

So I'm still none the wiser as to what exhaust is on my car, but I took it to Castle Combe yesterday for a noise check as I'm there in a few weeks. They asked me to hold 4500rpm (I was expecting them to say 6000 as that's 75% of 8000, but hey ho! 89-90dB was the result... pretty quiet then! But as I...

Welcome Graham!
There's quite a few of us in the area (Lotus in general, not just exiges).
Enjoy your car!

Re: 2006 Exige S

Alignment rig is looking great! Hope the fishing line is straight ;) :lol: Have you bought all the bits or made the wheel mounts and added a magnetic camber gauge? The ducting might make a slight difference to noise, but I would think if it was thicker (i.e. silicone) you'd notice greater noise supp...

Re: Help identify my exhaust please!

Thanks for the input all. Confirming it's not a Lotus exhaust does help. I'll do the noise test and if it isn't looking good I'll take it off and see if there's anything on top... as part of replacing it! Will measure the box at some point as well, but it could well be an 8" as it's pretty much...

Re: S2 Exige S 240 in Sunny Swindon

Thanks all! Really pleased with the car. It's not without its niggles hence sorting some bits and having a to do list, but for me that's all part of car ownership, love getting my hands dirty!
And thanks for the Instagram follows! I'm a sucker for admiring everyone's pride and joy on insta :)

Help identify my exhaust please!

Hi all, I just did an intro post as I recently bought my first Lotus, an Exige S 240 and it came with an exhaust which sounds good, does drone a bit at certain speeds, but is quite loud when at higher revs. I'm trying to identify it so I have an idea from others whether it's ok for track or not. I'v...
