Improving Exige sound system

I'm planning to use the S2 a bit more so I thought I'd upgrade the grotty speakers in my S2 (which are Blaupunkt). My local audio shop recommended some "Kickers Red". In my student days kickers where shoes but these are definitely speakers. The fit straight in to the existing holes in the dash and r...

Re: Wishbone protection

My local zinc galvanisers said the following are the reasons they would not use it in suspension wishbones. 1. Looks horrible 2. Would need min of 5mm holes into all enclosed tubes. 3. The heat could warp the wishbones. However they recommended a product call Zinga to brush on abs waxoyl injected in...

Re: Wishbone protection

Interesting. Did you powder coat for the look as zinc looks horrid or another reason. I suppose the additional cost is minor on newly zinc coated wishbones.

Probably the clutch, if you can buy that on its own. There is nothing in the compressor to burn, it’s a simple scroll pump compressor. Mine blew a gasket and leaked.

Re: Whooshing! gone! Stinky smell now!

That’s the one. Scsa 06c 447220 6364 10g 5276 Some of the above may be a serial number rather than a part number. The 10g 5276 may be a serial number, unique to each pump. It may also appear as hfc134a ... but that’s th3 fluid type not the pump. I found my new one listed under the fluid type. Should...

Re: Whooshing! gone! Stinky smell now!

If it is the compressor don’t buy one from Lotus, silly money. It’s a Denso part and they can b3 picked up on eBay for under £100. If you need it I may still have the part number.

Re: misfire detection kit

Mine does not have a MDK, that does not mean others don’t. My car used to run ok cold and was a monster when warm and ran very rich, stinking of petrol. It was the lambda probe. The ECU did not give any fault codes, just over fuelled.
