Yeah it's a Rev 400 TVS. I'm very familiar with the blower, but no so much specifically with the BOE setup.
It looks like it has a flashed OEM ECU, which I hope passes MA inspection.
Also can I flash it for an E85 tune and make it switchable? We do have E85 local, and that would help with the high compression/boost.
Found an undamaged used crash box today for reasonable money. Will keep you updated. If shipping is reasonable I'll have them ship it out tomorrow.
but so far the locksmith came today, took a door lock, and is making a key
I bought a new drivers side window from a forum sponsor, and they're shipping it today to get there on Tues. Having that replaced next week so the car will be sealed for transport
I bought the used clam for $500 and the person I bought it from is pulling it this weekend, and shipping it to me next week.
Have a new key fob on order, to arrive next week
And I arranged pickup for the end of next week from San Antonio, meaning that it will probably get here towards the end of the month.
So by the time the car gets here I could possibly have all the parts I need to repair it already on hand.
My goal is to have the car ugly but functional by August. That seems very doable, unless there's major unforeseen issues.
I live on the water in the Boston area, and I've heard boat guys are actually some of the most talented fiberglass guys, so I'm reaching out locally. There's also a big corvette club here in New England, so reaching out to those guys as well. Don't think I want to learn fiberglass on a lotus, and getting it back on the road sooner rather than later, has a value to me. Our convertible season is pretty short around here so I want to enjoy it as much as possible.
