It helped a lot of people, but didn't solve it for everyone, but if you're suffering excessive stalling on coast down, it'll help, its the C129 program for the Exige S. (Actually i think it was the B129 which has been since replaced with the C129)

+1 / Thanks Charlie - Once again your posts have proven enlightening. I am curious - has Lotus ever contacted you about joining their company? You have served as a tremendous resource for the North American community. :cool:

Where are the Technical Service Bulletins?

Do we have more current list of TSBs and perhaps the full details? Its like searching for a pot of gold trying to find them.
