Re: Wanted - Genuine S1 Exige Clams

I suppose genuine clams are like the proverbial rocking-horse s**t. A front clam mould was for sale on the 'Lotus Elise and Exige cars and parts For sale' Facebook group recently if that's of any use.

What are the differences between a s1 and a early s2 ( cable , not FBW ) Ecu?
As far as I know they're totally different, the S1 and 340R used an older EFI MT-501 unit similar to that used on the V8 Esprit, they changed them completely for the S2 (also EFI but a 'K4' according to Seloc).

Wanted: Exige S1 190 ECU

Long story but it transpires my S1's ECU has a fault and I'm struggling to find someone to repair it. I'm aware Bluestreak have been mentioned on other threads but they have not been very forthcoming in being able to offer a repair on mine - several phone calls and emails with part numbers and photo...

Re: Car no starty

Long shot but check the loom connectors to the injectors are seated properly, one of mine had a habit of vibrating loose causing all sorts of bangs on startup and then running on 3 cylinders. There's a little red square grommet in each connector which are easy to lose.

Date codes are year 2000 (front) & 2007 (rear) so strictly for display o...
