My brain is tired. Just read the entire Uberthread. Thought I was done with critical fixes after the toe links and the gPan2. Now gotta check the dreaded "U-bend" pipe for rubs. My Elise has 42k miles on it.

Storm titanium 2005 Elise with carbon fiber spoiler, BWR sway bar, BOE toe links, gPan2, LidBone, sector 111 wheel studs, Grey RAC Monolite wheels with toyo R1R, Team Dynamics 1.4 with Hoosier A6/R6s, Katana2 Supercharger, ECU with 265 flash. PPE headers w/decat, CEL angle eliminator, Silent touch catback, Rear Panel Eliminator, HKS intake, V2 fuel tank, Walbro255 fuel pump. HID lights.

Hi, Thought this would be a good addition to the How to's list if it is still being used or updated.

The thread title should be prepended with Elise/Exige

Stuck tach.

Once running, tach only shows movement to about 50 rpm.
Rev light still goes off.

Not sure it applies to a 2007 Exige, but did you follow the link to https://www.lotustalk.com/forums/f259...5/#post1402277

You'll probably get better responses posting your question in a more relevant (Q&A) thread such as that one. This is a solutions thread.

I didn't like that method... I just used a small impact to my spinning bolts out (came right out) and then just welded the flanges of the rivnuts to the sub-frame. I filed off all of the excess welds and then ran a tap through, to make sure the threads were clean.

This thread, together with the rest of the site, is so comprehensive that I may have overlooked a post/thread on navigation. I've spent 30 minutes looking though!

What do y'all recommend for GPS navigation? Is there a current (2015) model fold out head unit that does the job? What works for you guys?
