Lotus Elan

Rough budget for engine rebuild in USA

Another hearty recommendation for Bill Schlossnagel; plus FYI he has an engine dyno.
And another recommendation for Ken at Dave Bean.

I'm in Carlsbad and would also be interested in getting together with others in the area.

Thanks Steve.

I'd love to connect with other SoCal owners, trying to get the car going over the summer.

For East Coast use Quicksilver Racing in Maryland. Their machine shop is simply amazing. These guys build more race/street engines in a year than most do in a lifetime. They know TC engines very well. I have had two TC built by them .

Here on the west coast:

Tony Ingram - Santa Barbara
Barry Spencer - Spencers' European - former Dave Vegher employee in Rohnert Park, CA
Jay Ivey - Ivey Engines, Portland OR.

Discuss what you want with them and your budget. I'd trust my motor with any of them.

There is no cure for Lotus, only treatment.

Yes, I need someone in midwest US or mid-Atlantic area for a rebuild. I'm in Ohio
