Hi guys

Been on here a while bit not a regular poster. This is my second original s1 exige over the past 12 years and the 6th lotus ive had. Also have a beaut of a 211 with 1500 miles on.

So car has been in for 18 months on a bit of a build. Had a piston fail at silverstone 18 months ago after 8 or 9 faultless trackdays. Car was a jrsc k20 but was always getting black flagged. So opted to go down the turbo route in the search for a bit less noise and a bit more power

Car has had a lot of work done. Was pretty tired when i got her. Had a full respray. Engine, box upgrade, inside and out has generally been done. Few more bits todo but shes coming on nicely.

Done my installation miles and looking forward to learning more on the engine etc over the next few months. Car is on switchable maps 430 and 540hp. All work carried out by Tom at Datum mptorsport

Thanks for reading πŸ˜œπŸ˜œπŸ‘

....and you've just won the forum. Pretty much no point in posting anything anymore :lol:

Amazing, think I stalk you on IG as I've seen this before. Do you also have a 211 or am I talking rubbish?

Great Post, looks very lovely indeed.

Any more details on the engine, that's a LOT of power in a compact space!

Posts like this are making me seriously consider not having the VHPD rebuilt and going down the Honda Turbo route. Although, I imagine the conversion costs may be way out of my reach!

Looks the business and a blast to drive no doubt...,..
