I've just renewed with Reis, £381 all in for my S1, including 6x trackdays and £1000 spares/tools cover. I did get a quote from Manning based on this thread but it was nearly double! :shock:

Re: misfire detection kit

I've never heard of one on a VHPD. I think it was a recall/afterthought on the VVC-engined cars only?

The Exige ECU will detect misfires on each cylinder on its own though, and show fault codes :thumbup:

Re: starting problem

As above, immobiliser bypass would definitely be high up my list of things to try, they've been known to fail in unexpected ways! :( Is the car on the standard ECU, can you get a fault reader on it?

Re: sorting VHPD drivability issues

Hey Klaus, I'm replacing all the vacuum hoses and t-pieces, I wonder do you recall the bore size of the hoses?! I'm nowhere near the Lotus and would like to order them if someone has the knowledge of the correct bore size that would be great so I can get them ordered in time for getting them instal...

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.

Thanks for the replies guys :thumbup:
markf I might be interested in your K3 - I'm just trying to work out if it will do adaptive mapping with a wideband lambda controller, or if I'd need the K6 for that :think:

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).
