The car has the original boost gauge, and it really doesn't sound like a noise made by releasing pressurized air. It's metallic in nature....I am definitely going to try to isolate the vacuum pump and see if it could be hitting the heat shield. I don't think my car has the ram air mod, but I'll check. If I can't get it figured out, well looks like a road trip to Gretna may be in order��. Thanks
I seem to have "lost" your address. It's gotta be in an archived message but I can not seem to retrieve it. Send me it again, I remember it's by the Blair airport, but that doesn't do me a lot of good!
Broke at the connection point to the engine. Sounds like it has happened to others, you should look it up. Kind of interesting, it often has to do with a bent accelerator stop bracket. So just replacing the cable may end up in the same thing happening again unless the bracket is corrected/reinforced. Wish me luck on replacing the cable....figured I'd give it a shot!
Well, maybe luck was on my side last weekend. I went out to the airport last night and drove the Lotus just to be good to it, and.....about 2 miles from "home" the throttle cable broke. That would've not been fun on the interstate! Kinda rigged up a spacer on the butterfly to I could drive back the hanger in 2nd gear. That was interesting��. Anyways, I got a new cable ordered from Dave Bean so I may be a week or two until I make it up to Blair. Have a great week, I'm a bit jealous you are retired.
Buy a GM ECM off of ebay about 100.00 put your calpak into it and install it. most likely problem will go away. from what i can tell the secondary injectors short out causing the driver in the ecm to fail which causes code 26. replaced the ecm on mine and code 26 never reappeared.
Please look at the URL with the pictures - the description mentions tires type date code, etc. I don't remember offhand but believe 2013 for front and 2014 for rear.
I paid $1800 for them with bad tires so I think given the need to refinish (if you want pristine) it would be realistic to ask $900 firm plus shipping from 95135. I'd say the tires are good for 10-20k miles. Note the one rear wheel with peeling clear coat and one front wheel with minor curb damage. I'll include the rear adapters needed for 88 Et-20. Reminder the front hub must be either machined to 58mm or you could drill open the wheel but I don't like that idea from a structural integrity view.
