Lotus Elan

+2 Elan Zetec powered exhaust

PostPost by: lotuselanman » Tue Jun 22, 2010 10:03 am

Hi,
What I would really like are some photos of the exhaust from the head of a Zetec in a +2 Elan, be they Extractors, headers,bunch of Bananas or exhaust manifold. I am a retired Engineer and very hands on doing all my work where possible.
I would like to see how others have resolved the problem.
Thanks in advance.

OK Les; keep cool; I'd not heard the term extractors, made an assumption & offered some help.
Give us a clue; are you using the Lotus or Spyder Frame?
I did not offer you Photos of my set up as you specifically asked for +2.
Just trying to help :roll:

Hi John,
I am far from loosing my cool!!
Correct I did not specify detail such as Spyder or orriginal chassis, from my point of view that is irrelavent.
A Zetec in an an Elan is just that, the request is a genealised one. I'm interested in what ever is available, god forbid someones ideas may be better than mine!!!
Let the info and photos roll fellas.
Thanks,
Les.

Les,
I'm not sure if you have already looked at what Spyder do, here's a shot I took at a show

Hi Mike,

you didn't happen to take that picture at Donnington around April last year by any chance?

Possibly the year before. I've got a file of Spyder Zetec pictures that I have taken at several events and at their workshops to help me with my build.

regards
