Genius! I still like leakdown better and it takes about the same amount of time.

PS only very slight problem is injectors might still open and let out residual fuel pressure - I don't recall if the fuse also disables the injectors and pump. Plus, a non-Elilse tech will have to take time to find and read the electrical schematics.

Anyway, it is clearly under an hour tech time to do either compression or leak down and I don't think BOTH are necessary.

FYI the Texas forum may have been a better place for this:

Texas Region - LotusTalk - The Lotus Cars Community

Hope the PPI thing goes well.

Well for one the listing says magnolia but that interior is biscuit.

$300 for a PPI seems excessive. Each time I've had one done it's about 1 hour of shop time or $110-$130 bucks.

07 Porsche 911 GT3
10 BMW M3
03 BMW 330i ZHP
06 Canyon Red Elise- Katana SC (sold)
06 LRG Elise- (sold)

Yes, that is on the very very high side.
