190 kit

Apologies in advance for asking no doubt previously asked questions but I am trying to understand the Lotus 190 kit and the changes made to increase from 177bhp. Specifically I'm interested to learn more about the cam timing that I understand was also adjusted as part of the VHPD upgrade. Am I corre...

Re: S1 Exige Motorsport Seats !

One of the Exiges offered on Pistonheads is equipped with red motorsport seats. Finding a pair of thos red seats must be next to impossible. Maybe you better try to find a pair of worn out seats (either Exige or 340R) and retrim them in red. https://img.pistonheads.com/LargeSize/lotus/exige-s1/lotu...

Petrol spitting back

The last time I was refuelling the Lotus I noticed fuel was spitting back. Would this be an indication perhaps fuel breather isn't doing it's job and could do with being replaced?

Re: S1 Exige Motorsport Seats !

Thanks for the suggestions guys, much appreciated.

I guess it's the retrim cost that pushes the price up massively if needed and the rest of my car is trimmed in red so to add to the long shot ideally they'll be in red!

I'm not even sure they came in red alcantara trim, anyone?

Re: S1 Exige Motorsport Seats !

Yes I had seen that one seat, thanks for the heads up. What a shame for that Exige.

S1 Exige Motorsport Seats !

Well I am staggered a set of these has turned up and been put back in the rightful place, i.e. in an Exige S1!

As a very long shot if any body did hear of another set around somewhere in the world I'd love to hear from you!

There is a fantastic place they can be used in my lovely S1 Exige ;)

TPS

I've done a search and there are loads of matches for TPS. My question: should the TPS be spring loaded? From experience with TPS on other cars the throttle position potentiometer is spring loaded so there is some resistance. Mine moves freely without any resistance. Is that right? I can't help thin...
